More than 350 people who had purchased and used a dehumidifier or air purifier in the last three years participated in the Canstar Blue research.
Philips received five stars for overall satisfaction as well as reliability, quietness, value for money, functionality and effectiveness.
The research found 28 per cent of dehumidifier and air purifier owners use them every day during summer and the most popular reason for purchasing dehumidifiers and air purifiers is to help with allergies or medical conditions (36 per cent), improve air quality (31 per cent) and to prevent mould from growing in their homes (18 per cent).
The average amount spent on a dehumidifier is $203 and more than half of dehumidifier owners (51 per cent) would recommend the brand they use to friends and family.
Other brands that rated well in the research include Delonghi, Dyson, Breville and Kmart.
