Air conditioners and are common in most homes, but dehumidifiers are actually just as useful. Much like an air conditioner cools, a dehumidifier works by taking away moisture in the air. The magic happens inside the unit, where humid air passes through cooling coils, drips away excess water into a tank, and exits as, well, less-moist air. The benefits? A reduction in dust and allergens in the air and help fighting mold and mildew in your home (you know that “stuffy” feeling your house can get? Yeah, a dehumidifier helps with that). It can also make your home more comfortable, which is especially useful in the summertime when many areas are prone to blistering heatwaves and humidity.

So which dehumidifier is best for you? Here, a breakdown of some great dehumidifiers to buy, all with different price points to fit your budget.
