Hi

I have just one bedroom out of a few that has a humidity problem.
Two of the walls are external and are always in a constant shade.
Very damp, and wet. <- the wall in the fitted wardrobe.

Instead of jumping in at the deep end, I purchased a humidity monitor.

It was sitting in the 70's in the day, and when I woke this morning it was 86!!! haha (I must be a steamy sleeper)

So, time to get a dehumidifier.

From what I have read, I would prefer a desiccant? one as the room is pretty cold.

So, recommendations please??

Hi, agree that the desiccant type is more friendly to live with, although they use a bit more electricity. I have had the one linked below for about 5 years and have used it to dry clothes, keep camper van dry in winter and to keep my garage warm. It works very well, is quiet enough to sleep and will fill its container over a 24 hr period damp conditions.

Ebac make some decent ones, we use them in storage rooms at work.

Just make sure they're not noisy. The ones with refillable tabs are useless for your usage.
I'd recommend you get a builder and strip the paint, apply anti-mould paint, add an insulation board on the wall, then plaster/paint. If the walls aren't as cold, the humidity won't condense as much. Also sleep with the door open.
Cheers

I think that is one of the problems, I have the door shut 24/7 as I don't want my precious pussy in the bedroom.

by just breathing you release around 500ml of moisture into the air everyday, so when you are asleep for 8 hours you release around 1/3 of that amount meaning you aren't far from the truth when you say "I must be a steamy sleeper"

There's a midi dehumidifier in aldi. No idea how good it is. Was tempted myself but didn't in the end. Anyone got one who can provide a review?
