In 2015, Good Housekeeping reviewed 10 dehumidifier models from various manufacturers, giving the Frigidaire FAD704TDP and LG LD650EAL top grades of "A." In contrast, Top Ten Reviews chose the Keystone KSTAD70B as the best model. Overall, the best-reviewed dehumidifier varies depending on type and comparison.
IOT Works, which did a comprehensive comparison of 2015 units, chose best models for six different situations, such as small spaces, bedrooms, energy-saving and best bargain. In the latter category, the review chose the same model as Top Ten Reviews, the Keystone KSTAD70B . While Top Ten Reviews gave the model 9.63 points out of 10 for criteria such as performance, features, efficiency and design, IOT Works lauded the unit for its price tag of under $200 as of 2015. The 70-pint capacity Keystone model features a top-mounted control panel and compact design. It is noted that the KSTAD70B is not well-suited for bedroom applications, as it has a relatively noisy compressor.
In contrast, the Soleus Air DP1-30-03 was chosen by IOT Works as the best bedroom dehumidifier of 2015. The model has a 9.5-pint capacity collection tank, although the unit is capable of removing up to 30 pints of moisture from the air. It is ENERGY STAR rated for superior energy efficiency and comes with an automatic shut-off timer.
