Seems a good price, anyone know what the noise level is like on it?

Just bought this, it's brilliant, wish I'd waited now though with it being half price!!

It's not silent but quieter than most, I can sleep through it and I'm a light sleeper

What is the benefit of a dehumidifier? I've always seen them on sale but never really understood the reason for using one.

It dries out the air in the room it is placed. by doing so it can speed up the drying of newly plastered walls, or those rooms which are affected by high humidity or condensation.
Also a boon in the winter/bad weather to help hanging laundry dry

They take the excess moisture out of the air to prevent mould/damp etc. Very useful if you dry washing indoors and have limited ventilation. Also helps washing to dry faster.

I have the next model up and would highly recommend.

how much electricity does it cost to run per day?

Its says 180 watts..so approx 3 pence an hour

180 watts per hour. If you pay say, 11 pence per kw then it'd cost about 2p per hour to run.

Thanks goose

Heat up!

I bought a similar one last week and paid £120 so this is very good value

Just ordered, have been looking to buy a dehumidifier for a few months. Thanks HUKD!

Amazed nobody has said anything about desiccant dehumidifiers! One thing I will mention is that it does not appear to have a humidistat, ie; it will not turn itself off when desired humidity level is reached. I may be wrong but just a point.

just ordered thanks :-)

Says that it removes 12lts/day, but only has a 4 ltr tank. Presumably these things will turn themselves off when the tank's full else you could end up making more mess if you're out all day (night). Anybody know?

you set the desired humidity using the dial on the top. unit will then switch on and off to maintain this setting. great bit of kit, bought one when they were reduced to £89 so this price is excellent value. also much quieter in operation than previous models I had borrowed before

auto cut off when tank is full

Thanks for the quick answers everybody. I shall be picking it up tonight. Hopefully it will help things dry out a little quicker than the desiccant dehumidifiers I've been using after my recent burst pipe.

DeLonghi is the best

Be careful, breeding dry hair is harmful to health and you might not need it at all. On the other hand an humidifier could be more useful especially for people that in winter does abuse of the central heating constantly.

Being almost bald this interests me. But abusing my heating worries me.

I would always say go for a desiccant dehumidifier-but this is so cheap, I am going to keep my mouth shut.

= 72p per day = £21.60 per month. It adds up.

Thats if it runs all day, with a humidistat once its settled down it will be on and off. Still a point it does add up.30 days at 35p =something north of £10.

= 72p per day = £21.60 per month. It adds up.



But most people won't run one 24/7. I only run mine after putting a washing up in the house, normally runs for 12-24 hours before the clothes are almost bone dry. Probably twice a week.

It's hard to work out the exact cost, for example if used in winter (if you do have high humidity) the electricity is somewhat offset against gas as central heating doesn't have to work as hard (dry air heats faster)

This is a misleading comment, I would advise people to ignore it.

What is "dry" air? Recommend levels of humidity are very hard to reach in UK, as it is usually a very rainy and humid weather. Talking about "dry" air in the UK doesn't really make sense, and usually the minimum setting of a device like this would not really allow you to go to a level below the minimum recommended of 40%. You would also have to run it literally non-stop to achieve that, so there is no risk of that.

What is "abuse" of central heating ? Again completely misleading. It's the ventilation or lack of it that dictates the humidity level, central heating will not raise humidity very much, and in fact might help decrease humidity.

For both points of above, just get a device that reads the humidity in your house/room, and try to keep humidity around the 50% mark. Most houses need a dehumidifier in the UK. Or more, as it is mostly effective at room level.

And these things actually push out warm air.

Put the cash towards a PIV (Positive Input Ventilation) unit instead if you property is suitable/you're buying a Dehumidifier for damp reasons. Read later posts here and do some investigation yourself.

DeLonghi & eBac are amongst the best - however they cost £200+ Heat added

Can anyone please tell me if it also takes away the bad wet/damp smell from the room/wooden cupboard/walls/carpet ?

Good price, heat
Edited by: "STi_prodrive" 3rd Jun 2015

It will help to get rid of the cause. But, to finally get rid of the smell(which will probably still be there)use white vinegar (not white wine vinegar) 50\50 with water in a spray bottle, the finest spray you can get. I've used this and it is amazing. Initially the damp smell gets worse and of course the smell of vinegar. As soon as it dries you should smell results. Even works on wood.
PS. As products say test before using on delicates, although I've had no problems.

We have 2×ebac and also the next model up Screwfix version-the Screwfix is far better than the 'home' ebac. We have found the 'home use' ebacs to be no where near the quality of their traditional industrial versions.

purchased! thanks!

best air/humidity level to breathe is at around 60% and no 40% as you say. recommended between 50 and 70 and best being 60%. You would be amazed how low can it be in winter in a house where the central heating is in use. Low percentage of humidity does lead to headhache etc....especially in the morning. 40% as you say is too low. In many case it is an humidifier that people should look for instead. Dehumidifier are for visible badly damp places. An hygrometer should be kept handy at all times.
