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
This quiet-running dehumidifier operates like a floor fan. The large fan moves air very well, and it is extremely easy to move from one room to another. This model has a large handle that helps in moving the unit from place to place.
Home Comforts 50-Pint Low Temperature Dehumidifier
The Energy Star-rated Home Comforts dehumidifier is powerful, energy-efficient and quiet. It also features a built-in pump to remove water, therefore eliminating the consumer's need to empty the unit. Another feature is a light that indicates that the bucket has been properly replaced in the humidifier.
Santa Fe Basement Dehumidifiers
The Santa Fe models are ranked at the top of their class. They come with a one-year limited warranty and a five-year warranty for the condenser, the compressor and the evaporator parts.
