If you’ve ever used the words musty, muggy, dank, fuggy, wet, mildewy, or the dreaded moist to describe the air in your home, you may need a dehumidifier. We’ve been testing dehumidifiers for almost a decade, and we’ve found that many of the best perform as expected for a few years, then—maddeningly—die. Our latest hope for a longer-lasting machine that makes life easier in use is the Wi-Fi–equipped Frigidaire Gallery FGAC5044W1. The reality is that all the dehumidifiers we’ve tested perform about the same, but the Frigidaire Gallery’s especially quiet operation and ability to alert you when it needs to be drained set it apart from the competition.

Frigidaire Gallery FGAC5044W1, the best dehumidifier

Frigidaire Gallery FGAC5044W1

The best dehumidifier
Made for spaces of up to about 1,200 square feet, the Gallery’s Wi-Fi connectivity alerts you when the tank is full. Its app is stable and easy to install, and it also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
We recommend
Frigidaire FFAP5033W1, a great “dumb” dehumidifier

Frigidaire FFAP5033W1

A great “dumb” dehumidifier
This model is powerful enough for spaces as large as 1,200 square feet, its built-in pump offers lots of drainage options, and design details make it easy to live with.
Another good choice
Frigidaire FFAD5033W1, a similar pumpless model

Frigidaire FFAD5033W1

A similar pumpless model
Otherwise identical, this dehumidifier lacks a pump, limiting you to manually emptying the tank or passively sending the water down a floor drain. It’s also cheaper.
Another good choice
GE APER50LZ, similar power, slightly clunkier design


Similar power, slightly clunkier design
This GE matches the top-pick Frigidaire’s power, but its cumbersome drain-hose attachment and lack of cord storage make it less user friendly.
Another good choice
Frigidaire FFAD2233W1, a dehumidifier for smaller spaces

Frigidaire FFAD2233W1

A dehumidifier for smaller spaces
This compact, efficient, affordable dehumidifier is designed for smaller spaces such as bedrooms and laundry rooms.
