Find out more about our expert lab testing of dehumidifiers.
Our dehumidifiers test includes:
We measure water removal rates over 24 hours across a range of temperatures and humidity levels typical of New Zealand conditions. We use the average to produce a water removal score.
We use the water removal rate measured at 8°C and 90% relative humidity to issue a low temperature performance score.
We measure how much energy is used per unit of water removed.
We assess tank emptying, layout and readability of controls, clarity of instructions, cleaning and how easy each dehumidifier is to move.
We also record how much noise each dehumidifier makes and issue a quietness score.
We've tested 16 dehumidifiers.
Find the right one for you.
