Forget It’s There: The Best Quiet Dehumidifier In 2017

quiet dehumidifier

There are many reasons, especially relating to our health, why we might need a dehumidifier at some point.

When the humidity is too high in our homes, it can lead to mold and mildew, which itself can lead to health problems, as well as increase the allergens in the air.

Some people are allergic to mold and can suffer severely, but even those of us that aren't allergic can still be irritated by it. 

It can also do some serious damage to the fabric of your home if you're not careful. 

It's important to maintain healthy humidity levels that can be achieved with a dehumidifier, but sometimes we are put off by the loud noise and unsightliness.

However, this guide will give insight into a quiet dehumidifier that fits your needs.

Frigidaire Dehumidifier

Frigidaire, maybe best known for refrigerators, are experts in household appliances that are energy-efficient.

They didn't disappoint with their dehumidifiers. 

The design is simple and practical, being on wheels and with handles for easy manoeuvrability.

There's an indicator on the front for water levels. When full, it's easy to empty. If connected to a drain, you won’t have to worry about emptying it at all.

The fan will occasionally turn on to check levels and automatically start to work if it detects too much humidity in the air, but there's a 24-hour timer and control lock.

This dehumidifier works at low temperatures, saving energy and money.

This highly-rated model says it reaches a max of 52 decibels, with many only noticing the fan and not so much the compressor when it kicks in.

That makes it the quietest dehumidifier for larger spaces on our list.

Eva-Dry Petite Dehumidifier

If you’re looking to target a small space such as a bathroom an R.V., or even a closet that's starting to collect mold, a smaller dehumidifier will be more beneficial in space and saving energy.

It's horrible walking into an R.V. that has been in storage and getting that awful musty smell. 

Eva-dry offers the perfect solution for this and other small spaces.

Their petite and quiet dehumidifier operates on “whisper technology” and requires no loud compressor. When the tank is full, it will automatically shut off.

Don’t let the size put you off. If you have a room that is up to 1100 cubic feet that is experiencing damp, then the Eva-dry dehumidifier is definitely a product that will suit your needs.

Ivation Thermo Electric Dehumidifier

For a mid-size room (up to 2200 cubic feet), this Ivation dehumidifier is ideal.

It's compact but provides enough power to remove the moisture and dust particles from your standard-sized rooms.

The water tanks can hold 2 litres of water which can take 2-5 days to fill.

Many dehumidifiers on the market will run continuously until turned off or if the tank is full, but this model by Ivation lets you set the desired RH (relative humidity) and will work to that level before turning off.

When levels reach 5% higher than your set RH, it will turn on.

Very easy to set and forget about!

Keystone 70-pt Dehumidifier

The Keystone dehumidifier is a heavy-duty option for larger rooms.

It has three settings from normal, turbo and auto-defrost.

When it comes to noise, there's only a two decibel difference between low and high (54-56).

A great thing about the Keystone model is that it can offer a continuous draining with an everyday garden hose hook-up.

If you can’t do that, the dehumidifier will automatically shut off when the tank is full and provide easy emptying.

Your settings, made on the easy to read LED display, are saved and will automatically restart in the case of a power outage.

This dehumidifier also comes in black or white, so you can choose the color that will best work in your home.

EcoSeb Simple Desiccant Dehumidifier

This dehumidifier certainly lives up to its name…simple.

Instead of LED displays like many others have, this has a straightforward rotary control allowing you to adjust to your desired setting and that’s that.

The safety features on this are top notch, including automatic shut off when the 15 liter reservoir is full, high-temperature detection, and tilt protection.

Although small and quiet, it boasts having the same performance power as a larger model.

Simple As That

Don’t let the size and noise levels of tradition dehumidifiers put you off! 

This guide shows some of the best out there for a variety of needs when it comes to spaces that may be troublesome when it comes to humidity, mold, mildew, and more.

The technology in today’s models provides a quiet dehumidifier option that's essential for healthier living conditions in our homes.
