Good stuff - been looking for one of these and they do not seem to be on offer very often.

bought a different brand a few weeks ago for more money.

thanks been looking for 1 under 100 heat!

Hot, but I would personally recommend shelling out a bit more (~£150) for a dessicant dehumidifier (as opposed to the cheaper compressor systems). The compressor ones are louder and don't perform as well in colder weather - the litre/day ratings are all specified at like 30 degrees and efficiency drops quickly with temperature.

What temperature range does this perform at then? I have a good standard one that performs at 5C. What does dessicant range normally do?

Have a shop around - the Meaco ones seem to be well-reviewed, though all of these £150-200 models seem fairly similar really. I have this one, but it was cheaper when I bought it, probably better to pay a tad extra for a better-known brand at this price: aircondirect.co.uk/Amc…763

I'm not saying compressor dehumidifiers don't work at lower temperatures, just that they won't perform as well. It's a physical fact that it's more difficult to get water out of air by cooling-induced condensation if the initial temperature of the air is lower. The desiccant dehumidifiers work by binding of water into a water-absorbent filter, followed by extraction of that water by heating the filter material- it's a different principle of operation, and less affected by changes in temperature. I have not tested this myself but the science makes sense and people's testimonials seem to agree.

Bought the higher spec 210DB-16R at £109.99, Voted hot and thanks for thanks for the post OP.

Great for winter! No more dry skin! No need for Chapstick anymore

this!

I got the Meaco DD8L and it's amazing how much it sucks moisture out. The clothes drying option is also brilliant as you just use something to redirect the hotter air it blows out onto the washing

plus it automatically switches off when it reaches it's humidity level so saves on energy bills

I had this 18 months and it packed up

i bought this exact model 8 montjs ago for the full price. I'm very impressed with it. It's quiet and does exactly as you expect.

Never been happier since I bought my dehumifier from Screwfix last November to use while I was decorating. Everything dried quickly. No I use nearly daily at least for an hour . No condensation on windows even with washing drying in kitchen.

I had a Meaco arrive yesterday. Can I ask what setting you run yours on? Also mine is just not switching off its just continually running, its not even collecting that much water so I'm assuming my house is not so damp, been warmer the past couple of days so no condensation anyway but its just not cutting out at all.

Thanks

I had one of these for over two years and it packed up because of USER (MY) error - clean the filter! Mine then and a replacement I bought at under £100 were not quite although not sure if it were a fault with both. Great machine though and certainly doesn't struggle in the cold. Works great with the laundry and sucks water out very well.

aircondirect have some awful customer reviews. Was going to buy the Meaco DD8L from them but think I'll get it from elsewhere!

I bought an Ecoair 3 months ago , and had the same problem. I contacted customer services, and was told to run on full power for 1 or 2 days to ensure that all existing damp was removed. Once I'd done this, it settled down, and only comes on every now and again. I was convinced mine was faulty until I tried this. Then again, you might have a faulty one

Buy one with a 5 year warranty.

I would not say any dehumidifier is quiet but it is not overly noisy either and no loud pumping with mine and it certainly works well and is highly portable.

Ebac are the best machines, and you get a 5 year warranty. Their customer service is first class, mine stopped working, they sent out a new one with next day delivery and uplifted the one that had developed a fault, and that was after 3.5 years!

i have the DD8L too. it is great. Dessicant dehumidifiers are better in cold weather but they do use much more electricity than compressor ones ( which i have had in the past). either way this is a great deal for a great spec

Its all about the relative humidti which I think this model dsplays and you can set it to what you want to achiee. default is about 64%. Set it to 50 odd % odd and it will realy get going.

I got a Meaco DD8L a few months ago - really great (as dehumidifiers go) - it's fairly quiet. Trouble is I bought it for the conservatory which it was doing a great job with, until the wife stole it and now uses it to dry all the clothes in the house (which tbf it's also good at).

If you ever plan on moving it, a desiccant one seems the better bet

I'd echo that - desiccant type (which I think this deal is not?) is the best at extracting water at cooler temperatures, and can be moved easily around. A bit more to run, but the heat given off offsets that.

The meaco DDL8s a good machine - far superior and extracts much more than the old Ebac we had.

It was going to be such an easy decision ... get the WDH-122H-12R from Screwfix as it seemed like a good special. Then zzuazz came along and mentioned the 210DB-16R for £10 more which has a few extra nice features (worth the extra £10 I think) then CannedChaos came along with the dessicant dehumidifiers which does sound far superior and probably worthwhile forking out yet and £40.

Admittedly I'm no dehumidifier expert (although I now know a lot more). Oh what to do???

Voted hot on this, cracking price for a dehumidifer. i actually went for the higher spec one which is only £10 more for reasons I listed below. but if price is the main issue and you live in a smaller place, then this is an increidble deal with great reviews.

I've posted it as a separate deal in the hope it will be useful, rather than trying to compete against this

Probably being dim here how do you know the humidity setting? Do you set it to the 3 droplet icon? I've triad all of them and it wont shut off. They say optimum is the 2 droplet with the thumbs up is the the 64% setting.

I cant find a reference as to what setting = what humidity.

sorry then I must have a different model which does display the relative humidity as a figure and you can set a desired level. Aslo must splel better

For those of you that are now as confused as me as to which dehumidifier to get, here's a nice little video explaining how they work (probably a bit biased towards the desiccant dehumidifier)

youtube.com/wat…uwg

Must admit I'm now leaning towards the desiccant dehumidifier (thanks to CannedChaos!)

Wanted the 16L model, but none left in Aberdeen, so went for this.

Much quieter than the DeLonghi DEM10 model that it has replaced (cost twice as much when I bought it). It was really bad for noise (it worked great though).

Set mine to 1/3 way round and its doing the job of keeping the windows clear of condensation on a frosty night.

Excellent purchase.

Wish I could work out the energy saving thing. Whilst it can use less electricity it still seems to use about double the compressor type 'at optimum'. Some say the dessicant type are more unreliable. How do we know?

After reading the comments about compressor vs desiccant, I ended up going off and buying a desiccant. I already had a small compressor dehumidifier which I use to leave on 24 hours a day for it to collect a trickle of water in the tray
(and still loads of moisture collecting in my cold conservatory).

When my desiccant dehumidifier arrived, I switched it on and in 1 hour it had already collected probably more than 3-4 times as much water as the compressor version did over 24 hours! I've left the desiccant dehumidifier on a few nights now (economy 7) and I estimate it collects about 1 - 1,5 litres per night (compared to the trickle from the compressor as compressor versions do not like the cold). The new one has a humidistat built it so it goes to fan only mode once the humidity level has been achieved (I set it to max at night and min in the day). The fan only mode tests the air for 5 minutes every half an hour which I believe uses 30 watts .

So the desiccant one may initially be more expensive to buy and use twice as much power when it's running but then it's collecting a LOAD more moisture and switching off once the level has been reached (there are probably compressor versions that also switch off, just not my "cheapy"!). I suspect the desiccant will work out cheaper electricity wise in the long run as my compressor dehumidifier often use to run 24 hours a day.

I will leave then both on one night and measure how much water each one collects if you're interested. May be a bit on an unfair competition though comparing a cheap compressor version against the dehumidifier version which probably cost 3 times as much (may just prove a point about a false economy (_;) )
