If you have breathing problems like asthma or severe allergies, you probably already know that the right dehumidifier can do wonders for your health, but the benefits don’t stop there. Excess moisture in the air is tied to a wide variety of problems, from mold, mildew, and musty odors to pest infestations and degraded sleep quality.

Dehumidifiers work by intaking moist air and collecting the excess moisture, typically in a tank or basin, before expelling drier air into your room. They come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and functions, all of which can raise or lower the price of each unit substantially, so it pays to know exactly what you need and want from your dehumidifier. Do you plan on using it in a bedroom to help you sleep or in a bathroom to combat moisture buildup? Maybe you’ve got a basement prone to moisture trouble and want to prevent mold from forming.

While most dehumidifiers operate via the same mechanism, they’re not all built with the same specifications or features. Here’s what you need to consider before buying:

  • Room Size: The single biggest factor is room size since the larger the room, the greater the volume of air and moisture your dehumidifier will have to deal with. If you’re shopping for a large basement or family room, opt for a powerful, floor-based device with a large moisture tank. On the other hand, bedrooms and bathrooms can get away with smaller, table-based models.
  • Noise Levels: Most dehumidifiers operate at barely perceptible sound levels, but if you’re shopping for a model to go in your bedroom, you’ll want to prioritize quiet operation.
  • Features: Sought-after features include LED indicators to signal when the tank is full and needs a change or when the air filter needs to be changed; a built-in timer to allow you to start or stop the process of dehumidifying on a schedule; and an automatic stop function that intelligently senses when the tank is full.
