Moisture in home or office air can be a big problem when there is too little or too much. Air that is too damp can cause itchy skin and nasal passages, ongoing condensation on windows, water damage to materials, mould growth and even rot of wood materials in your house. Air that is too dry can also cause discomfort with dried and itchy skin, cracked or rickety furniture, and sparks when you reach for a doorknob or another person.
The Amcor PLDM18E Dehumidifier removes excessive moisture and reduces the humidity without causing the problems associated with air that is too dry, making it pleasant to breath and keeping your home or office water damage free.

Featuring a 2.7 litre tank, 18 Litre per day extraction rate, 2 speed fan, an electronic control panel makes this easy to use whilst a washable filter means no extra filters need to be purchased.

We've got a 2L dehumidifier for our flat as it's as basement flat and gets damp in the summer. We couldn't live without it. They're very noisy things so you wouldn't have one on in the same room that you're in. But then you can always use the timer either at night or when leaving in the morning.

Got mine from ebay for about £50.

Bought one of these a couple of years ago and its still going strong. They really do work wonders and extract much more water than you expect - the continuous drain function is especially handy if you are using it in a very damp environment. Its much quieter than the Ebac 18L we also have and looking at the prices now much cheaper also.

This is a fantastic item i purchased one about six months ago on eBay the price wasn't as good as this one, but it is working perfectly throughout this rain we've been having. I am going to pick up another one for the cellar.

£99 at BHS Direct, don't forget Quidco for 2% discount, plus they accept Paypal so no need to give any card details over! http://www.bhsdirect.co.uk/BH_Amcor_AirCon_DeHumidifiers_40008314/version.asp

Edit: 0.95% surchage for Paypal bringing it up to £99.94 (a whole 3p cheaper) but still more convenient way of paying nonetheless (_;)

Thanks to the OP.You can get 5% quidco on this, and if you pay by Visa debit, there's no surcharge.

Are these expensive to run?
#9
the FAQ says max 300 Watts, with an average of 260 Watts. Seems reasonable, my PC uses around that much I think.
#10
Dehumidifiers are superb mine is a Mitsubishi electric it has many functions, air con etc. I bought it as new at a car boot £13-50p. You see many advertised in local papers, WHY pay £100 +.
Mine uses 280 watts of power.

Are these expensive to run?
Yes, relatively. Bear in mind that although the power consumption might not sound huge, they are sitting there consuming that power for most of the time.
#12
just how loud is this? Could you sleep in the same room as one?
#13
Had problem ordering this from website last weekend.
So ordered one from BHS direct, with quidco cash back too
I think it is the same company though as despatch address is same for both of them,

I thought this was a good deal but decided to pay a bit more for a desiccant based one. Probably researched it all in too much depth but it's worth considering exactly why you need a dehumidifier. I was left with the impression the desiccant based ones work better if you have a cold house or cold conservatory, whereas the compressor versions e.g. Amcor are fine in a warmer, heated house. The 18L per day is an optimal amouint in ideal sitiations. It's going to be more like 1.5/2 litre in many homes whereas a desiccant based unit in a cool home may still take 3-4 litres.

This Amcor is a good deal, but worth researching based on what you are doing with it.

I am using for the past one week, and fully satisfied with the performance.
#17
Is it silent? How much water are you getting in real life per day? Any criticisms? Still considering one for my folks... just in my case thought a desiccant was more suited to my needs.

Not researched about a desiccant dehumidifier.
In my home it collects about a litre in 2 hours time.
I guess it also depends on actual humidity present in home.
#19
I just got mine delivered. That was QUICK!

Gotta leave it upright for 2 hours before I can switch it on.
#20
Would be grateful genie if you can give us some feedback in a couple of days... noise, how much it is collecting, overall effect.
#21
Asking how much it is collecting is pointless without knowing the temperature and humidity of the air it's sitting in.

Just littel curious about warranty. on BHS website it says after 28 days warranty covered by manufacturer. when i tried to look for Amcor contact details on web i found website called AMCORGROUP.COM. on web site when you click on map 'europe' this message comes up ''Deze site is gesloten om administrative redenen. This website has been temporarily closed for administrative reasons''
it might be just a maintenance of web site or it could be they are in administration. if that's the case what about warranty??

Following text from Bhs direct website
Faults Occurring Within 1 year: If you've had the product for up to 1 year, your product will be repaired directly by the manufacturer. If that's not possible we will give you a replacement, or if that's not possible, a refund.

So if the manufacturer is in administration then BHS has to provide a refund, if they can't replace/repair the item, but is it fair though on BHS?

fair enough. i have had some trouble getting decent service from web retailers in the past. i am not saying this one is anything like that but when they ask you ring them on 0871 numbers for any assistance you know they love to make money out of every situation. i prefer to deal face to face or at least have geographic number to ring for help...should one needed.they have 'warehouse' in huddersfield for collection/customer service desk. i suppose it should be OK for local purchase.
i am buying one from B&Q.at least they will deal with any issue promptly at store.

I used it for the pas few days. Before getting this I was getting really bad condensation in my bathroom and bedroom. I left it on for a 3 hours in the upstairs landing and it collected about 1 litre of water.

I did the same the next day and it collected nearly the same amount in 4 hours.

I now have not had condensation for the past 2 days and have not switched it on either in the last 2 days.

This works great for me. I'll use it occasionally to suck all the moisture from the air.

thanx for your excellent advice Black cloud.
i never knew there were different kinds of dehumidifiers.
i had purchased one from B&Q after using for 2 day it did not collect a drop!
now i know what to look for as my house is bit on cold side.
what do you think about this one

link may be too long so item is this Prem-I-Air 8L/day Desiccant Dehumidifier
reviews seems good.

I bought a desiccant one and it performs well on the highest setting. On lower settings it just collects a very low amount of water - but suprised, thought it would be better, but depends on the humidity level. We don't really have a condensation/damp issue except in the conservatory which is quite cold. It collects about a litre in maybe 4/5 hours.

Re the Prem-i-air, looks ok, but i paid more for a different one, got mine at 4Air. The Amcor may well do a similar job but mine has laundry mode, auto restart etc. and is only about 7kg so is portable with a handle etc.
#28
thanx for info.
i had a look at 4air web site. seems reasonable price.
one you have got is it ''PXDRY - Super Powerful Desiccant Dehumidifier 3.5L Tank digital humidity display, Digital Humidistat and permanent drainage'' at £139.99 ?
#29
No, it's an Eco-air sometyhing like FW122 Mk4 There is a code you can search for that takes a few percent off... and then use Quidco or it may be there is a code when you go through Quidco. Mine came out at £147 delivered. I am more happy with it now than when it first arrived. I've realised that the low setting does work and it regulates humidity.

Downsides...well desiccant are meant to be quieter. There is no way this is quiet whilst it is doing its job. There is no rumbling compressor, but the sound of a fan and rushing air. Quite intrusive. It has a quiet mode and when it is ticking over fair enough, but when needing to work its noisy. I live in quite a big house (by modern standards). You would need one upstairs and one down to do the whole house.
Also takes a fair amount of electricity. It's not a moan, but just something to weigh up. You certainly couldn't have it close by in the lounge whilst watching the tv although once it has cleared the humidity it drops down to the rate of a low-midspeed fan. Hope that helps.
#30
cheers.
i could not find any discount code. i did try to ring 4air but there seems to be some problems with phone line. been trying for 2 days.. that is little worry if one have issue with goods.
there is one web site that looks decent in price is T2direct.co.uk. i might buy one from them.
thanx for all your help.....happy xmas
#31
Hi
Have you found the Amcor unit starts off quiet and then becomes really noisy after 3 minutes?
Thanks
#32
I don't have that problem.
I would say it is always reasonbly quiet for me.
#33
Bought one of these last week from eBay for just shy of £100 delivered, its pretty loud, you couldn't sleep in the same as it, well theres no way I could anyway. Works well, I empty mine 2-3 times per day and on average the 2.7l tank is 3/4 full each time. My windows now have a lot less condensation, especially in the morning after the cold nights.

Dont know about reliability yet, as said I've only had it nearly a week but so far so good =)
