A great little dehumidifier with great reviews. I was looking on Which? for a dehumidifier and the reviews looked great on this. RRP is £98 but B&Q have an extra £20 off this until tomorrow and is a available for free delivery and collection

Hot. Wish the sale was on 2 weeks ago. I went for a German made Trotec at £74.95 which works really well but with no digital display.

our dehumidifier is one of our best purchases. with 3 kids and no choice but to dry washing inside the house, it works wonders.

Could you copy and paste the which review op or tell me a bit more thanks

Er, I think Snoopy wants the actual article rather than a link. Which will (presumably) only work for members.

Bought this yesterday, collected about 1 litre in 12 hours. Don't know if that's good or bad but I'm happy.
I set it at 50% humidity but the digital readout as stayed around the 55% mark. Is this right?

Yeah I did think this, but unfortunately this is my first post and I don't know how to add a picture....

What is it?

A refrigerant dehumidifier from Blyss. Refrigerant dehumidifiers are designed to work well in higher temperatures and humidities, and are currently more widely available than desiccant dehumidifiers in the UK.

It claims to be able to pull up to 10 litres of water from the air each day. However, the claim is based on 30ºC and 80% relative humidity conditions being maintained over 24 hours. It’s unlikely you’ll experience these conditions in your home. That said, dehumidifiers with a 10-litre capacity are normally well suited to flats or small homes – they’re designed to work well in an area that’s around 10m2.

It weighs 8.8kg, which is lighter than the average dehumidifier we’ve tested. It doesn’t have wheels, but you can move it around with the carry handle.

It has a humidistat, which is designed to monitor the moisture in the air so it can turn itself on and off to maintain the humidity level you’ve selected. With this dehumidifier, you have three humidity options to choose from – 40%, 50% and 60%.

This dehumidifier has frost watch technology, to help prevent water from freezing on the cold coils when pulled from the air.

It only has one fan speed level, whereas many dehumidifiers have two or more. It also doesn’t have a timer – so if you’re using the dehumidifier continuously (as opposed to with the humidistat), you’ll need to remember to turn it on and off.

What’s it great at?

This dehumidifier quickly extracted water in our tests at 21ºC and 59% relative humidity conditions – so it’ll do a good job of drying out many rooms in your home fast.

It’s among the most energy-efficient dehumidifiers we’ve tested when extracting water at room temperature, which means it won’t cost you too much to run.

You should find this dehumidifier really easy to use. The controls are really simple to use and it’s very stable – so it’s unlikely you’ll accidentally knock it over. It doesn’t have wheels, but it’s easy to carry with the handle – though our experts thought the handle had an uncomfortable edge on its underside.

We found that the auto-setting function worked well, so you can trust it to maintain a specified humidity level.

Is there anything I should watch out for?

Like many refrigerant dehumidifiers, it doesn’t do particularly well at removing water from the air in colder conditions. So it might not be the best choice for you if you want a model for an unheated garage or caravan, for instance.

Blyss claims that this dehumidifier has a 2.4-litre water tank volume, and that it shuts off automatically once it’s collected 2 litres of water. However, we found that it switched off once 1.88 litres had been collected. That’s pretty small, but it’s worth bearing in mind that you can use this dehumidifier’s continuous drain facility – you can connect a pipe so that collected water flows down a low-level drain outlet. You’ll have to buy a pipe separately, though, as the dehumidifier doesn’t come with one.

Is there anything else I should know?

Our lab experts found this dehumidifier about as noisy as a typical dehumidifier. If appliance noise is a real bugbear for you, look for a model with a better rating in this test.

The grasp for removing the water tank is towards the bottom of the dehumidifier, making this task a little trickier.

Should I buy it?

Possibly. It's affordable and not bad - though it's slow at extracting water in colder conditions.

Agree, I use mine all the time, not as expensive to run as peolle make out. A couple of hours with mine in the regular setting costs about £0.08p

They do cost a few pence and hour to run but you do get that energy back as a heating effect, a bit like a low power fan heater, so in cold weather its not completely wasted and condensation is reduced.
