How to Make a Quality Choice
The size of the dehumidifier is strongly related to the humidity levels that the room contains. As such, if you have a room which struggles with humidity levels that are extremely high, then you will definitely need a device with a large moisture capacity. On the other hand, if you have a small room, then a low capacity small model will certainly satisfy your needs. Many people believe that a small size automatically involves a low performance because it is not powerful enough to absorb too much moisture. This is not true as each device is specifically designed to handle a certain room size.
- When perusing the market, keep in mind the size of the room you will be using it in. Small devices can only deal with small spaces so if you want a high performance, do not overwhelm it. Analyze its room capacity and the number of times it circulates the air while absorbing moisture in order to make sure it will yield as expected.
- Small size moisture removal devices tend to get full fast because they have a small water container. This is why you should go for one with a built-in humidistat to control its operation according to the level of humidity in the air. Also, see if the model you like has a shut-off feature to turn it off in case the bucket is full to prevent any spillage.
- Furthermore, when shopping for the best one, you should also take into account the indoor temperatures. Most devices have minimal temperature controls, depending on what is present in your room. Therefore, if you want to control humidity levels in cool-temperature areas, including cellars, garages or even basements, then a model which is able to handle these low temperatures could be very appropriate for your needs. Otherwise, the refrigerated coils can freeze up. However, there are plenty of models available in the current market, and each one of them provides a number of impressive features, so it should not be very difficult to find a suitable device for your home.

Why You Should Make the Investment
Most of the products available on the market are regular size and they usually require plenty of space, which is not something all houses have to offer. Small area dehumidification devices are more appropriate for small homes and they bring the same performance with the added benefit of saving space. If you are not convinced, check out the advantages brought by these compact dehumidifiers.
Less space needed
– As we already established, less space is required by these compact devices that measure a fraction of the size of large room dehumidifiers. If you cannot fit a big device in a bedroom or a kitchen, you will be happy to learn that you can get the same absorbing performance while also saving space.
– If you do not have a big budget, learn that the compact version costs less and you can get a very efficient unit under $100. This does not mean that they are less effective, it only means that their cost is proportional to their size.
– Being smaller means that you will be able to lift and move it with more ease so you can transport it from one room to another and use it where you need it the most. This way, you will be able to solve the humidity issue in separate rooms without having to invest in two devices.
– The smaller motor and the lower speed levels make it a more silent choice that is great for bedrooms and even nurseries. Set it on the highest speed and it will still be quiet enough to allow you to sleep, work, or read.

F.A.Q. How do I figure out if it is suitable for the nursery?
There are two stats you must look into when choosing the dehumidifier to make sure it is suitable for the baby’s room – the area it can cover and its noise output. Obviously, you must check for the appliance to be able to handle covering the entire area of the nursery as otherwise, it will not be able to properly remove excess moisture from the air. When it comes to the noise output it produces, you must look into this spec to ensure the appliance will not bother or wake up the baby during his/her sleep.
Why is the automatic shut off feature important?
The automatic shut-off feature shows the appliance will automatically stop working when the water collection tank gets filled. Thus, it keeps the appliance safe and it prevents water from being spilled on the exterior area of the device. It is a feature which all of our choices boast, and one we recommend you look into when making the purchase as well.
At what price does it usually come?
Generally, these appliances cost under $100, but there are a few exceptions which exceed this sum. As with any product out there, its price is somewhat of an indicator of its construction and performance quality, so you should expect a more expensive device to perform better than a cheaper one. However, do not base your decision solely on this aspect as it is more important to look into the features which accompany the dehumidifying appliance and its specs rather than the price tag.
Should I look into the capacity of the water tank?
Yes, you should as it indicates how much water the dehumidifier can collect before the tank needs to be emptied. If the area you intend to place it in is quite humid, you will be inconvenienced by a small-sized tank as it will require you to get rid of the water inside very often, thus presenting a nuisance.
How does the technology utilized weigh in the overall quality of the product?
The technology utilized indicates not only its efficiency when it comes to excess moisture drawing, but it shows important info about other aspects too, including Eco-friendliness and power consumption. in a device designed for use in small-sized rooms, we recommend you look for the Peltier technology as it is the most optimal.
If you want a humidity removal device for the nursery, the kid’s bedroom, or any other small room of the house, you need one with a limited capacity in terms of moisture removal. As you have already most likely understood by reading our article and the reviews section, the Eva-Dry EDV-1100 Electric Petite is one of your best options as it can effortlessly remove up to 8 ounces of moisture per day when placed in a room which measures up to 106 square feet. Best of all, the price of this product is quite reasonable when compared to the proficiency it delivers, meaning that it is difficult if not downright impossible to find a better deal.
The Ivation IVADM35 Powerful Thermo-Electric is almost as great of a choice as the aforementioned dehumidification device. However, it is an option worth taking into account if the room you want to place it in is a bit bigger, more precisely if it measures a maximum of 220 square feet. If your budget is seriously limited, then it would be smart for you to use the hOmeLabs FBA_HME020018N as it comes at a very cheap price, and utilizes the Peltier technology to be capable of eliminating as much as 16 ounces of moisture per day from the air in the room you place it in.
