Living with excess moisture and humidity can lead to a number of issues both for your home and your health. You might notice signs of mold and mildew alongside the unpleasant, musty odors they can cause. An increase in allergy symptoms and persistent coughing are also unfortunate consequences.
Investing in a dehumidifier is an effective way to resolve these problems and a desiccant unit could be exactly what you’re looking for. Unlike a compressor model which uses condensation, a desiccant system utilizes a wheel that acts like a sponge to absorb and remove moisture. The dry air is subsequently propelled back out again, enabling you to breathe easier.
There are many benefits to desiccant dehumidifiers. For example, they’re generally:
- Smaller and lighter than compressor systems, so you can move them around to different areas more easily
- Designed to operate in lower temperatures
- Built with a faster airflow
Alongside factors like noise levels and energy consumption, we also made sure to accommodate a variety of budgets and included units for a range of room sizes. If you’re keen to find something to use in a relatively small room, the Keystone 14 Pint Desiccant Dehumidifier is a great choice and covers up to 200 square feet. But if you have a larger space to fill, the ECOR PRO 30 Pint Small Portable Commercial Desiccant Dehumidifier is designed for rooms up to 500 square feet.
To ensure we found the best desiccant dehumidifiers to meet your needs and find the ones which work best, we used consumer reports analysis. We made sure, however, to remove any fake reviews and all our recommendations came from genuine people like you who have used these models.
