Basements are notoriously damp environments. They are notorious for being damp. With this in mind, we set out to find the best basement dehumidifier, which took the form of a dehumidifiers marathon. We purchased and tested 12 of the best basement dehumidifiers on the market, across 9 different categories and at 7 different price points. We evaluated performance, design, ease of use, and value to determine our 10 best basement dehumidifiers.

We conducted our basement dehumidifiers marathon in 5 different rooms, each of which has a different moisture level. The basements were host to a range of wet or damp items, from boxes to laundry to couches. We then evaluated each basement dehumidifiers performance in each area, using both an anemometer and a hygrometer to measure moisture levels.
