The best desiccant dehumidifiers

Table of contents

Excess moisture in the air can cause a host of problems for homeowners, as mould growth, rotting wooden furniture and the cultivation of insects are among some problems brought about by moisture issues. Reducing or regulating humidity levels through the use of a dehumidifier is among the most efficient ways to curb moisture issues and improve indoor air quality.

Desiccant dehumidifiers are a popular choice of dehumidifiers in Australia due to the many advantages they carry, such as their ability to function effectively throughout the year and being more compact and lightweight compared to compressor models.

With all the different desiccant dehumidifier models on the market, you’d be hard pressed to choose the right one to suit your space, so we’ve compiled a list of highly-rated desiccant dehumidifiers from the Ionmax catalogue to help you pick the right model for your space.
