  1. Perfect little best dehumidifier for small spaces! This little guy is fairly quiet, easy to operate and doesn't take up much space. Easy to empty when the reservoir is full and has a nice auto-off in case you forget about it! I use this in my office at work and it makes it feel cleaner in the mornings and makes my desk not feel so sweaty after the building has been empty and warming all night.
