Hi. Personally I would stretch myself and purchase a drimaster. I know someone who's got one and says they are much better than any dehumidifier. I just sold my dehumidifier as although it collected moisture it still wasn't powerful enough and I.m installing a drimaster in the new year. Check the reviews for the drimaster on Amazon. A lot of good reviews.

I have the same bedroom house with the same high humidity conservatory and also looking for a dehumidifier. After doing quite a bit of research, I have my eye on the Ecoair classic from your first link. I'm hoping for a price drop to around £130 before I bite though!

Agree, I fitted a drimaster 2 years ago after, running a dehumidifier for a year, with good results in the room it was in but not a whole house solution. Since fitting drimaster not used dehumidifier, virtually no condensation on windows. If you do get one fitted make sure they hang it from above, rather than screw it down, cuts out noise. Also it is recommended in instructions.

I have used dehumidifiers for 20 plus years. Ebac was my first and I have mostly stuck with them on the landing ( 4 bed house with rear extension) whilst trying others in the extension where we have clothes horses. At present we have an Ebac on the landing and a Mitsubishi MJ-E16VX in the extension.
The Mitsubishi is the best we have tried. It is quieter then the EBAC but has a smaller capacity tank which requires emptying every other day. When the EBAC needs replacing we will get another Mitsubishi.
I would not get a dessicant dehumidifier. Having said that i do use a number Unibond moisture absorbers which use tablets in hard to reach areas. They do work very well but refill tablets cost £7 for two but can be found at £3 for two if you are lucky.
However it can be a matter of choice and price.
Rather long winded but I hope this helps.

Upon reading about the Drimaster, although it looks like a good product, it seems it would be no use for use in a conservatory for a few reasons. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

1. Because there is no loft space in a conservatory

2. If there is high humidity outside (as there is much of winter) then all the Drimaster will do is circulate the high humidity, instead of actually removing the humidity which the dehumidifier will do.

You do not fit it in the conservatory it is a whole house solution. I get virtually no condensation on any window/conservatory in the whole house. The only time I get any condensation is when the temp outside falls below zero.

try ur local aldi they've got a fairly decent dessicated dehumidifier on at a reduced price of 60 pounds if ur lucky enough with a 3 year warranty and its got a high take out of around 20 litres a day I had similar issues in a similar size house I got a dessicabtnt one buy meaco and problem sorted out dessciant seems to be better the the ones with a compressor as they heat up the air aswell and don't risk freezing in colder areas like a conservatory.

I'm in the North of Scotland so plenty nights below zero X)

My 2 dogs are also in there at night so could be a reason why the humidity is so high.

I can't see how the Drimaster could sort the problem with the high humidity and condensation in the conservatory as there would be no air circulation in there as the doors are always closed.

Thanks for the tip. Was going to fix it to ceiling joists but that would make more sense to cut out the noise/vibration.

Thanks for the comets guys , I have the dc18 still in its box

Looking at the drimaster , as my loft is been used by the previous owners as an unofficial living space with plug sockets - can I fit one in that space and it will work properly ?

Also not sure if it will solve my conservatory problem either ?

Any help much appreciated - happy Christmas everyone :D

It depends if you use it as a living space and how well it's been insulated I suppose as it sucks in the fresh air from the attic and distributes it through a vent in landing ceiling so the fan would be visible in the attic space. As for the conservatory I wouldn't like to say it would work and it didn't. There's a review on Amazon which describes how it works in principle perfectly. I would copy and paste it but in a rush ATM!
