One of the most popular energy star dehumidifiers on the market is a Comfort Aire dehumidifier (Model: BHD-651). As with any product, it has its pros and cons, but the overall value is high.
This Comfort Aire dehumidifier has a sq. ft coverage of about 1300 sq. ft. which should be sufficient for most standard homes. However, that sq. ft. coverage is pretty standard on other comparable energy star dehumidifiers.
The overall effectiveness is solid but the noise level is a bit too loud. If you are looking for a energy star dehumidifier for a basement or garage, this would be just fine. Unfortunately, it is not a good option for living rooms, bedrooms, etc. because of the loud noise that it produces.
This Comfort Aire dehumidifier is really easy to setup and maintain. The bucket is easy to remove and replace unlike many of its competitors.
In summary, the Comfort Aire dehumidifier (BHD-651) is an excellent choice if you are trying to decrease the humidity level of a basement or garage. If you need one that you can use in a living room or a bedroom, it may be a good idea to look at other energy star dehumidifiers.
