You’d think finding a good dehumidifier and air purifier combo would be a piece of cake, considering how popular each appliance is these days. Yet for some reason, we could only find a half dozen models that combined both features—especially those with HEPA filtration.
Why you would want both a dehumidifier and air purifier? Well, if you work in an office that is both humid and dusty, then this machine is a must-have. After trying out the handful of models on the market and asking our readers for their suggestions, we think Tenergy’s Sorbi Air Dehumidifier with Air Purifying Function is the best budget-friendly for most folks.
Yes, this little machine can remove 25 ounces of water from the air each day, making it a good choice for smaller spaces (think an office or smaller apartment). It worked well and is reasonably quiet (we measured it at 41 decibels).
What We Liked
• Weighs just 7 lbs.—easy to move from room to room.
• Simple to use.
• 1 liter water tank.
• HEPA filter.
• Auto shut-off.
• Water sensor tells you when tank needs to be emptied.
What Needs Work
• Probably not the best choice for larger spaces, like a basement.
• Not as ideal for a bedroom. While we judged this dehumidifier/air purifier combo to be quiet enough for an office, it might be less ideal for a bedroom. See the next pick, as it runs somewhat quieter.
