Air conditioners and humidifiers 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 heat waves and humidity. So which dehumidifier is best for you? Below, we rounded up nine of the best dehumidifiers around, all with different price points to fit your budget.

This little guy packs a big punch by working in spaces up to 190 square feet. It automatically shuts off when water needs to be emptied from the tank, and is super portable and light — so you can easily move it from room to room, to your closet, on trips... you get the gist.

This dehumidifier can handle a bit larger of a space, but is still easily portable and simple to use. It's whisper-quiet, which makes it great for bedrooms and nurseries.

A bit of an upgrade to the last pick, this humidifier can handle a bigger-sized room (plus, it's a Walmart favorite with thousands of glowing reviews.) With a 35-pint capacity and Effortless Humidity Control that allows you to control the exact percentage of humidity in your room, this one is a solid bet for small studio apartments, living rooms, and open concept spaces.

7 / 9

Removing 50-pints of moisture a day, this dehumidifier is a dream for larger spaces (think: basements and living rooms). Best of all, the wheels stay out of sight, so it looks sleek but is also easily portable. Win-win.
