The Best Dehumidifiers
Updated Dec 10, 2022
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.
