The Best-Rated Basement Dehumidifiers


Mildew odor is not something you want to experience during any part of the day. Dehumidifiers can help the mold trouble and control unwanted pests, such as dust mites. There are many good humidifiers on the market, but the ones below were top sellers at Allergy Buyers Club and Amazon. They came with high recommendations by people who actually used the product.

Soleus 40-Pint Portable Dehumidifier

  • The Soleus 40-Pint dehumidifier is the best-selling for 2009. It removes up to 40 pints of water daily. It has touch pad controls with three-level settings at 70 percent, 60 percent or 50 percent. It is lightweight and easy to move.

Frigidaire 50-Pint Humidifier

  • The Energy Star-rated Home Comforts dehumidifier is powerful, energy-efficient and quiet.
