i have just moved in my house and we get this in the loft as we just found out when we got the kids prezzies down to wrap all wet so will be watching the thread for helpful hints

if you have condensation in your loft make sure your loft can breathe check insulation is not blocking the the eaves where the rafters meet the top of the cavity wall you may even have to think of fitting a vent you can buy tile vents that match your foof tile just a matter of removing a tile and putting tile vent on i only get condensation in the loft when its freezing outside and there is no wind soon as there is wind it evaporates

I have been using a dehumidifier for a year now-it's frightening how much water is collected.

We're planning on getting one aswell, I was looking at an Ebac 2650e. It's quite expensive at £169.99 but has free delivery and a 5 year warranty if you buy direct. If anybody has any thoughts then I'd be very pleased to get some feedback.

Been uswing a dehumidifer for a few years now as our downstairs is open plan. Have a silver coloured Ebac one and it is great. Agree it is amazing how much water/condensation it collects without you realising it is in the atmosphere

just to let you no of a dehumidifier that i just bought for the same problem. of damp and mould it s called drimaster it costs £300 pounds and you get a builder to fit it in your loft .costs 1 pence a day to run and its a bit like air condtioning. it blows the air in your loft around your house to dri it out.

we have been using one of these http://www.amazon.co.uk/Delonghi-Dehumidifier-Compressor-Free-Technology/dp/B000N3ZBW6 for the last 3 years now (new models out now)

It was £150 from homebase -10% so got it for £135.

It was one of the best investments that we made. Living in a flat it is perfect for drying washing :)

We put it on most days, and as said above, you wont believe how much moisture it takes out of the air.

dont forget the 15% voucher for homebase for this weekend http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/543320/15-off-everything-instore-at-homeba

ok after trolling the net and reading reviews i have ordered an ebac 2650e wirh 5yr warranty direct from ebac so once i have it up and running i will update as to whether i think i have made the right decision to buy one
#9
I'd love to know how much these things cost to run?

Thankfully moving (again) to a new house at the end of Februrary that is fully double glazed - just a pain in the meantime having to wipe windows down pretty much daily and stop things getting mouldy :x
#10
it does not matter if your house is double glazed i have new double glazing ,had a new roof ,walls insulated ,extractor in bathroom all this does is make it worse the house cant breathe properly oh yeah even put an air brick in each bed room i hate it only thing left to do is kitchen extractor just hoping the dehumidifier can reduce the humidity enough
#11
ok recieved it three days ago ,starting to show results already, so far so good got the ebac 2650e not very noisy less noise than the extractor fan in my bathroom,it has manual settings and auto settings i have it on auto and so far have emptied it twice in three days,the room i have it in is noticebly warmer and condensation in the morning has reduced a lot, still a little in our bed room but much better than before manual says it takes between two-four weeks to get condensation under control so we shall see how the dehumidifier deals with this cold snap, down stairs humidity has dropped to 48% from about 58% on avg so far, will update in coming weeks.

been running a couple of weeks now and empty it about every two and a half days, the mild weather makes a difference and it has started cutting out on auto setting ,still get a bit of condensation in my bed room nothing like what i was getting so if you are in two minds about getting one do it, does make a difference and i used to get a lot of condensation
#13

i have had the same one for a few months now, i find it quite noisy, had to move from upstairs landing to downstairs hall, windows no longer dripping in water, still have slight bits, after running for about a month turned it onto economy and problems reappeared after several days, so leave mine on all of the time
