The Best Bathroom Dehumidifiers

Small bathroom dehumidifiers.

Bathrooms are the ideal breeding ground for mold and mildew because they are so often hot, moist, and humid. A dehumidifier is usually the best safety measure, which is why we will review some of them. We will also show you what to take into consideration when choosing a bathroom dehumidifier and how they compare to exhaust fans.

Bathroom dehumidifier vs. exhaust fan

Choosing between a dehumidifier and an exhaust fan is not always easy because both have their pros and cons.

Most dehumidifiers are large and often bulky, which means they take up more floor space. Now, this may or may not be a problem, depending on the size of your bathroom. But then again, many systems today are much more compact than before without compromising on power, while others can even be wall-mounted.

An exhaust fan, on the other hand, is smaller and installed into walls and ceilings, so they are always out of the way. The only problem is that these fans do not dehumidify. It instead expels a lot of the hot moist air from the bathroom. While this does help a lot in lowering the chances of mold growth, it still doesn’t compare to a dehumidifier that sucks hot air, blows it over cold coils, and then expels dry air. You can also control the exact humidity level you want, thereby making it a lot harder for mold to grow in your bathroom.

Another thing to take into account is that exhaust fans tend to get clogged up every so often, so they do require more maintenance than a dehumidifier.

What size dehumidifier do I need for my bathroom?

It depends on the size of your bathroom. A large bathroom can comfortably accommodate a bulkier floor-standing dehumidifier, whereas a small bathroom might not be able to. If space is particularly limited and you don’t have much floor space to spare, then a smaller or wall-mounted system will be ideal.

The best small bathroom dehumidifiers

Small dehumidifiers are great for using in tiny spaces. The four featured in the next section includes the SEAVON, Pro-Breeze, Honati, and Hysure mini-dehumidifier systems. They are light on energy usage, whisper-quiet, and can dehumidify areas from 150 to 269 sq ft.

They do have their drawbacks, though. For example, they can’t be hooked up to a drainage system, so the water it collects needs to be emptied manually. Their capacities range from 500ml to 2000ml and take two days to full, so it’s not too strenuous at all.

The SEAVON dehumidifier

This small bathroom dehumidifier from Seavon is ideal for use in confined spaces thanks to its 7.2″ x 6.2″ x 11″ dimensions. And although extremely compact, it’s still powerful enough to dehumidify a room of up to 170 sq ft easily.

It has a capacity of 500ml and extracts 250ml of moisture from the air every 24 hours, so it needs emptying every second day. It has to be emptied by hand as it can’t connect to a drainage system, but luckily 500ml is not much. Also, no need to worry if you forget to drain it because it switches itself off automatically when full.

The SEAVON dehumidifier is also whisper-quiet, so you can be in the same room when it’s running and not even know that it’s there.

The product has dimensions of 7.2″ x 6.2″ x 11″ and weighs 2.4 pounds.

The Pro Breeze mini-dehumidifier

The Pro Breeze, just like the SEAVON mentioned above, is tiny and ideally suited as a small bathroom dehumidifier.

It easily dehumidifies spaces of up to 150 sq ft and has a 500ml capacity. It takes about two days to fill and then automatically turns itself off to prevent overflowing.

Unfortunately, it has to be emptied by hand as it cannot connect up to a drainage system. It is, however, very energy efficient and quiet.

The Pro Breeze has dimensions of 7 x 6 x 11 inches and weighs 2.4 pounds.

It’s also light and portable enough to easily transport around to wherever you may need it, such as the basement, kitchen, RV or even crawl space.
