If your laundry room or basement feels like a sauna, you desperately need a dehumidifier. High humidity levels can cause mold and mildew, and a dehumidifier will help balance the air in your space — and keep dangerous bacteria at bay. It also ensures that your AC is working optimally.

Not sure where to start? Amazon just highlighted one of its top-rated models — the Tosot Energy Star Dehumidifier – 33 percent discount, for today only.

Amazon’s choice dehumidifier is a 50-pint model that can handle rooms up to 4,500 square feet on a 24-hour cycle. (Other smaller options are also available, with various discounts).

The accumulated water can be easily drained: just attach the device to a hose and it automatically drains. You can also use the included water bucket to empty it. And because it’s an Energy Star product, it works efficiently and effectively so you won’t see an increase in your energy bill.

Amazon shoppers love this machine – nearly 3,000 shoppers gave the product a perfect five-star rating.

“We’ve had numerous dehumidifiers for our 1,500-square-foot basement, where we keep several bookshelves of books that would spoil in high humidity,” shared a bookworm. “This 30 pint dehumidifier is exceptionally efficient, drawing moisture from the air even during heavy rainfall. HIGHLY recommend this device. Easy to set up; filter access is easy. We attach a drain hose to our unit, so you don’t have to empty the reservoir. The water just drips down the basement drain.”

Another shopper cheerfully reported: “This unit has made our place in Florida much more livable. There we use the bucket mode that we normally empty daily. Very easy to do and slide together well… It works great all summer and keeps the house at the right humidity without having to run the air conditioner a lot.

“We borrowed a 1990s dinosaur dehumidifier from a friend and finally decided to put the bullet through the air and buy it,” noted one shopper. “It pulls a TON of water from our finished basement every day, easily a gallon or more, and has really made the area much nicer and more comfortable, less damp and cold. I find my kids spend more time playing and relaxing because of this. that is well worth the price of this thing!”
