While effectiveness was the most important thing we focused when selecting these dehumidifiers, we also wanted to include models with modern features that can enhance their convenience. Examples of this are the Honeywell TP70AWKN, Frigidaire FGAC5044W1, Ivation WIFI50WP, all of which offer Wi-Fi connectivity and are compatible with Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant. When it comes to out-of-sight or work zone applications, industrial-looking units, like the Aprilaire 1850F, AlorAir Sentinel HD90, and Dri-Eaz PHD 200, and BlueDri BD-130P are often the best choices, as they can remove a greater amount of moisture from the air per day than the more attractive models designed for use in prominent living spaces.

We strived to include a variety of models to suit homes of all sizes, as well as some that are tough enough for use in commercial workshops. We found a common problem with many whole house dehumidifiers is that they tend to run for a year or two and then die, so we did our best to exclude models in which this is known to be an issue.
