Had a look at prices elsewhere, seeing it around £115 mark.Gets good reviews too. Not well up on them so maybe not in best place to judge but thought it was worth a shout!

I bought an Eco air dehumidifier a couple of years back and rate the brand! I read at the time that as they are a British company they are built for the British climate which is obviously quite different to Europe for example.
The best price I found at the time was from a company called 4air!

Its amazing how much water these things suck out of the walls and air, really makes a difference to the house :-)

From the comments, looks expensive to run 24/7.
A few hours a day may be okay though

I have a problem with voting any Amazon "Deal of the day" Hot solely because its "Deal of the day".

Came here just to post this - didn't realise it was deal of the day. Had this in my basket last night at ~ £115 but didn't bother ordering until this morning. Glad I waited, heat added!

water tank seems a little on the small size when compared to similarly priced dehumidifiers.

I bought this at £155 a few months ago. It's the best dehumidifier I've owned. It's a dessicant one which is much better suited to cold England than the other cheap compressor based dehumidifiers.

So when you're comparing the water tank like the person above, make sure you're not making the mistake of comparing it to a compressor model which will always be cheaper!

This is also the quietest dehumidifier I have owned. I love the timer on it, set it for 2 hours before leaving for work.

The person above who thinks this isn't a good deal, please post a link to a better one! Remember posting a compressor based unit is not the same. At £90 this is an absolute steal.

I got one of these a few months ago, used to suffer with condensation on the windows and black mould on the walls in most of the rooms. Initially had to empty the container a couple of times a day but now it's only every few days. No condensation any more and not a sign of black mould.
Also another thing about the expense of running it, I don't have a cold and damp home any more so the central heating is on less and it feels more cosy.

Glad to see this getting good reviews!

Been looking at this model,its not bad for £89 I don't think,Looking at the manual for it,I don't think this has the timer as said above.

Wattage is low 360w hight 620w ,I wonder if the 620w mode is when on laundry and the switch to turbo?

620w continuous for 24 hours,at 15p is about £2.20,,but obviously it switches on/off and that is in what they call high mode.

Might go for this,2 year warranty also,

It would be quite helpful if you explained that why it's not a good deal.

You haven't actually added any value here.

One of those things you think you need, but once you have it you don't bother using it

sounds like a great deal. even 2nd hand ones dont come cheaper than this plus you have a 2 year warranty.

Can I pick your brains please,do you still run it daily and if so,for how many hours approximately,night/day etc ?

Question for those in the know...
I currently have a normal dehumidifier which is 10 litres per hour (I think) but to be honest I'm not hugely impressed with it. Would this be better?

I live in a large 1 bed basement Flat and we do have issues in the winter with condensation and damp

So, it looks like it's a good deal then?!

NO! Not these things again! Bought 1 last month, arrived smashed to pieces. Replacement Leaked everywhere. 3rd unit was a customer return passed off as new (the YODEL returns label back to amazon even gave the previous buyers address and contact details!). 4th unit actually worked. Confirm this unit does not have a timer, but a humidistat. Bought another for the bathroom - heres hoping it arrives intact.

We have single pane wooden frame windows in our rented flat, condensation is shocking. I bought a small Amco for my sons room and it did help quite a bit but I have to leave it on all the time. Planning on getting a bigger one for our front room and bedroom that ill move about, seen this below.

It's £99 new. There is also a refurb same seller on ebay for £63 quid free del but they are away at the moment will order when they return.

Gets good reviews.

These units are great at "room temperature". In fact, the cooler the room, the better it works. It does output warm air, so heating can be lowered and will offset the cost of running it. Most compressor type humidifiers are rated at 30c and 90% humidity on their x litres per day claim.

I BOUGHT IT IN OCTOBER 2013, after I have returned the Ebac. Much better than Ebac, lighter has the same power to extract water.
I spent £158...

I have 2 of these, bought one for my shed, they are great, work wonders. But as stated, the collector tray is a little small and the tube you can use instead is useless. But I empty it daily anyway and it's fine.

I have two of these - one in cellar to keep my tools rust free and it runs 24/7 [you can plumb them to drain continuously so the tank size is a bit irrelevant. The other in a bedroom to dry clothes during the winter. I can confirm [a] this is a really good price and [b] they are a very efficient and effective means to control damp. I would highly recommend these units particularly at this price. Heat added

The weather is getting hotter so you don't really need one. I just leave my window open and the damp goes away. Works far better than my dehumidifier.

Thanks for posting I am seriously interested in this decisions, decisions

I currently have an combined air conditioning unit which can also function as a dehumidifier which I bought on eBay for £60 about 6 years ago. In terms of people worrying about the power consumption of this unit mine uses a 1Kw according to the energy metre, however I still view it as efficient as it will dry 10+ Kg of washing within 2 hours (which is far cheaper than a tumble drier) although it does sound like a jet engine taking off and you cant be in the same room as it when running, something this model wont suffer from.

I have spent ages researching this type of dehumidifier a couple of years ago and can tell you this is a bargain. £115 Is the cheapest that I've ever seen previously. However this has a 2 year warranty and delivered by amazon not a market place seller so reduced fears regarding returns. I think that this may have the same internals as the more expensive Delonghii but without the timer feature.

The only caution I would raise on this is read the reviews, whether on Amazon or John Lewis, they seem to have a notable failure rate after the warranty has expired. Though to balance this out its cheap and will work at colder temperatures than a compressor one.

In terms of the person who wanted to know how long to run it for, I use my compressor one for about 20 mins in the bathroom during winter, twice daily, it dries the towels and considerable reduces condensation on the windows not only in the bathroom but across the house.

Don't have this exact model, but dehumidifiers are very handy.

I live in a ground floor flat. And in Scotland so it rains all the time. Use mine to dry washing. Does a great job. No stinky washing from it taking days to dry indoors and no mould on the walls/ceiling of the room the washing dries in. Tend to just leave it on overnight for one night and that does the trick.

I got mine in Argos years ago (at least 5 or 6 years) and it's still going strong. I did put it on a power meter thing to check the running costs and they were not as high as this (or as high as I thought it would be). Can't remember exactly but I think it was somewhere equivalent to a 100w light bulb ....

But if it packed in, I'd probably go for something like this.

Hotter? Scotland? LOL! I wish!

But leaving windows open isn't an option overnight or during the day when you're out at work. Not in a ground floor, street facing, flat with sash and case type windows ....

not seen anyone mention it's bigger brother which has a far more sensible tank on it: DD322FW. Currently £145 on amazon which is an excellent price: amazon.co.uk/Eco…2fw

There's no chance leaving mine on for 20 mins twice a day would help the condensation when it's cold,when it was frosty the other morning I was back to steamy windows even though the dehumidifier had been on about 2-3 hours the night before.

I guess it's trial and error how long to leave it on.

At the moment it's mild so no condensation on the windows at the moment,but I still use it to clear the Bathroom after having a bath.

I'm always wary when people register on here especially to say they own a product and how great it is.

We're also in Scotland in a ground-floor cottage and our dehumidifier is on 24/7. It has to be - the energy rating on our house is *G*!

Ours is over 20 years old, so I can only imagine that this would be miles better...

I'm not that impressed with mine tbh, but I guess it's how and where you use it. If you're using it in a warm environment(I forget the temps at which the standard dehumidifier is more efficient)then I wouldn't bother. Mine empties around 7 litres a day - which isn't that much!

I'm sure this works well and have ordered one, but i think a lot of people would be better opening their doors and windows for 30 minutes each day, before you say it, yes cold air comes in but remember that the building itself holds a lot of heat so you don't lose as much heat as you think, the air soon warms up when you close the doors/windows again.

Absolutely! Have a bath, cook dinner, sweat a little - I'm sure that takes you over its 7 litre capacity. Heat and air exchange works much better. This dehumidifier is great if you want to keep a cold area damp free.

You don't live in Scotland do you ....

If I opened my windows for 30 minutes at the moment I'd be more likely to catch hypothermia. It may be hitting 20c in London now, but just getting into double figures would be nice up here ....

Hear hear. We have some of our windows open 24/7 and it makes little difference. The dehumidifier is essential!

have one of these. purchased from 4AIR.
very good. has 2,4 hour timer.
HOT at this price. I paid £160. still happy with it. steal at this price.

Really don't know what size to get this one or the larger DD322FW £144.98. We live in a 3 bedroomed home and worried as bee having black mould growing on ceilings and walls. Always having to bleach off and regularly leave windows open for fresh air to circulate. Any advice please anyone?

As I've said previously on a similar thread opening the bedroom window in my case at night made matters worse,the mattress ended up getting damp !!

When it's mild I do open windows,but its the warm air hitting the cold glass in the Winter and you sleeping in there etc,opening windows doesn't solve that.
