Dehumidifiers are ideal for homes that lack the ventilation to let moisture evaporate on its own. They're commonly used during peak-humidity days in the summertime, but they could be used in the winter in areas of the home that have poor air circulation.

If certain corners or crawl spaces in your home err on the side of moist or musty, nip the issue in the bud before mold, bugs, and health issues start to crop up! We found seven top-rated dehumidifiers that are exceptional at pulling out the moisture in your interior atmosphere so you can start breathing easily again.

2 Eva-Dry E-333 Renewable Mini Dehumidifier
Eva-Dry
$17.99

Best Budget Buy

An affordable solution for keeping mildew in a non-ventilated bathroom at bay, this mini-dehumidifier is filled with silica gel beads that capture moisture without needing to drain out the water afterwards, like a larger-sized unit would. Users love this small-sized pick for being simple to use, silent, and super-effective for years.

3 GE 70-Pint Dehumidifier with Built-In Pump
$319.00

Best Splurge

This 70-pint dehumidifier is one of the very few models that's available in black, in case you'd like to have it blend in a bit more with your other midsize home appliances! Color aside, it's a reviewer favorite for its built-in pump feature, which pumps water from the internal reservoir, through the 16-foot provided hose, and out through a window, into a sink, or into a floor drain. Models that don't include pumps either have to be emptied manually or they must use gravity to drain the water through the hose.

What's more, its Energy-Star certification provides even more peace of mind to users. Even if the device has to run continuously during a high-humidity or flooding situation, your electricity bill won't be run up significantly in the process.

4 Frigidaire 30-Pint Portable Dehumidifier
$169.88

This user-favorite dehumidifier is touted for its effectiveness at ridding the excess atmospheric moisture, though users note that its air-sucking whir can be a little noisy to those not used to it. The device allows you to control the humidity of a space via external knob, and it has an automatic shut-off for when the tank reaches capacity. It's available in a 30-, 50-, and 70-pint model.

5 hOmeLabs Small 500-ml Dehumidifier
hOmeLabs
$33.99

This petite device is great to take on the go for ridding excess moisture from boat cabins, garages, attics, and RVs. A small 500ml reservoir means that it's not ideal for rooms larger than 150 square feet, and it can't be run all day — but users do like it for drying out smaller spaces in the home (like the bathroom) that lack proper ventilation.

6 iSiLER Portable 2-Liter Dehumidifier
$79.95

Another portable, hose-less pick, the iSiLER dehumidifier has a sleek shape and operates quietly for use any time of day. It's able to remove up to 2 liters of moisture from the atmosphere at a time, and it includes an automatic shut-off and yellow-light indicator that tells you when to dump out the gray water it collects.

7 Frigidaire 30-Pint Dehumidifier with Effortless Humidity Control
$164.00

This sleek, top-performing unit is a must-have in any home with basement flooding issues. Even when running 24/7, as an Energy-Star-rated device, it uses less energy to work, saving you money and improving your home's well-being in the long run.

Its Effortless Humidity Control function also lets users digitally gauge and set the exact humidity of their space, and it works as a standalone unit with a water tank, or it can be hooked up to a hose to empty out through a floor drain. It's available in a 30-, 50-, and 70-pint model.
