Best Dehumidifier for 2012

The 2012 best dehumidifier ratings are found here. Compare reviews on home, basement, RV, energy efficient, and room dehumidifiers.

You know that proper humidity in your home is healthy for you, your family, your pets, plants and even furniture. You want to know which one will do the best job, at the best price. 
There are many factors to consider when looking at reviews for the best dehumidifier for your home. What size do you need? Will it be used only during summer, or also when the temps can dip below 40 degrees? Is noise a factor for your dehumidifier?

Because there are a number of considerations when looking for the best dehumidifier for your home or RV, there is not just one that can be said it the best. It depends on your situation and needs.

Portable, or small, dehumidifiers are best for when you need one in a bedroom or nursery room. My top recommendation on an easy to find dehumidifier for smaller spaces is the Frigidaire 25 pint dehumidifier. It is energy efficient, which is great for the environment and to reduce overall operating costs. It has an auto shut off when full, which is also great.

Generally, for a large area of your home, you will want a dehumidifier which has a capacity of around 40-70 pints per day. If you live where it is very humid, then opt for the high end of that.

For your home or large basement, I recommend the Santa Fe Whole Home Humidifier. It is expensive, yet it gets high ratings, and has an automatic pump, so you never have to worry about empting it. It works on up to 2200 sq. ft. and removes up to 90 pints a day.

If you will be using a dehumidifier when the temps in your basement might dip below 55 degrees, I recommend low-temperature dehumidifiers. Dehumidifiers are meant to be used above this temp, so you'll need these special humidifiers for anything lower.
