Test Results

Water removal

Water removal

Water removal measures pints per day removed under 65º F and 60 percent relative humidity (the new 2019 DOE standard). Models closest to claimed removal scored higher.

 /  5
Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency measures kWh needed to remove a pint of water from the air; the fewer the kilowatts, the higher the score.

 /  5
Noise

Noise

Noise denotes loudness at the highest setting, measured in decibels. We also measured ability to run on low voltage and restart after a simulated blackout; models that didn't automatically restart are footnoted.

 /  5
Humidistat accuracy

Humidistat accuracy

Humidistat accuracy is how closely humidistats came to keeping the humidity levels we set for them in our test chamber.

 /  5
Convenience

Convenience

A measure of how often you would need to empty the tank in order to reach the claimed pts/day.

 /  5
Cool room performance

Cool room performance

Cool room performance measures pints of water removed and watts needed to remove this water when the dehumidifier is used in a room that is 50 degrees F and 60% relative humidity.
