Portable Dehumidifier Versus Aprilaire Whole-Home

Aprilaire helps you maintain a dry basement with a high-efficiency dehumidifier.

If your portable dehumidifier is running all day, it’s not keeping up. Many dehumidifiers are undersized and experience greater wear and a shortened life. Aprilaire dehumidifiers remove up to 2½ more gallons of water per day — keeping your basement mildew and odor free. Invest in a high-capacity, high-efficiency unit that works.

Top reasons to invest in an Aprilaire dehumidifier:

1. Protection - Remove odors and get better protection against mold and mildew versus a portable dehumidifier
2. Durability - Designed for heavy usage in damp basements. Includes a 5-year, all-inclusive warranty
3. Convenience - No more emptying portable dehumidifier buckets
4. Made in the USA

Invest in High-Efficiency Protection that's Built to Last
