Blyss 12L Dehumidifier £74.98 (half price) B&Q free delivery on line (no collect in store)

Been looking for a reasonably priced dehumidifier and needed 2 and spotted this – needless to say I rushed on line to get them and then shared with you all of you – may come in handy for some of you people who have had some water ingress over the past week . cheapest I could see of any type of dehumidifier was the £99.99 ones in Argos and bearing in mind I have been looking out for a dehumidifier for 12 months or more feel this is a good deal ..

My home since the cold weather drew in has got wet windows and little patches near the windows and little mould patches – being out at work all day means I don’t get the air circulating and although I air the house it’s just to cold….

Too much moisture can cause condensation, damp, mould growth, peeling paint and wallpaper, warped wood and musty smells. Very nasty. This is when a dehumidifier comes to the rescue. It draws out moisture from the air, making humidity levels in the home just right

Thanks OP. Any idea how noisy this dehumidifier is?

looks like mixed reviews on noise - some say fine others say quite noisy so mixed reviews - if it's noisy i won't put on at bedtime

Great price

Thanks scarletlady38. Much appreciated and the review is indeed very helpful. My in-laws use a dehumidifier made by ebac which cost them £200! However, it is very quiet - no more than a gentle hum.

If you can afford it, or you know you will be using a dehumidifier in a very cold room, the dessicant dehumidifiers are better, quieter and certainly would be the ones to buy if you were comparing this at full price. Appreciated it's half price and people may be on a budget. Dehumidifiers are also costly to run, so factor that in. None of them seem to cover the volume of air they state either i.e 'enough for a 3 bedoom house' - maybe if it was on for hours and hours and no door or window was ever opened. I'm aware this sounds a bit negative, but just trying to help people make the right choice.

BlackCloud are you meaning the type you get in Poundland in the plastic trays? I use that type. They sell scented varieties including jasmine and lily scents. However, it states on the side that they are not recommended for use in bathrooms.

we use ebac, can confirm its effective and quiet in use. Get a 5 year warranty, these used to be included in price but not sure anymore. Ours has gone wrong and been returned more than once, when it comes out of summer hibernation, it can be non working after several months in storage. Has occurred more than once.

Blyss 10L Dehumidifier – 205 watts – 2.5p per hour now that’s the 10 liter one
(1000 watts = 1kw and so 250 watts would equal 0.25kw)
So you would work out your dehumidifier running cost by using the following equation:-
KW x Electricity cost in pence X number of hours run
So a 150 watt dehumidifier running for 12 hours with an Electricity cost of 14p per unit can be worked out as:-
0.15(kw) x 12 x 0.14 = £0.252 = 25.2 pence

I can confirm these are available in store as I've just bought one!

You can't click and reserve online though

Thanks OP!

No, the Dessicant electric dehumififiers, usually cost from around £125 upwards...

We had a Homefront Decissant Dehumidifier which we paid £130 for on ebay - it looked the biz but conked out just after a year with less than 100 hours of use.
Avoid Homefront at all costs. Reviews of the model I bought can be found on Amazon which have a lot of 1* reviews but didn't at the time I bought mine.
Heat added to this deal but I'm after another decissant but a decent brand with a few years warranty.

For Gbp 75 pounds it's worth it's and you have 1 year warentee, on top of that of you become b and q club member you will get Gbp 10 phonics voucher on 10 jan onward for usage towards your next item purchase. I bought one today

Many thanks for posting this. This is just what we needed. Clicked on the link but no longer an option to order, went to our local store and they had this item in, it was priced at full price, checked with a member of staff if this was the correct price, he scanned the bar code and it came up at £74.98.

Thanks - my 2 were delivered on Saturday and are doing a fantastic job - very pleased thus far - I had a leaflet through over the weekend advertising the dehumidifiers in the sale leaflet so I'm guessing that might be the reason they are no longer on line but seemingly from other posters you can get them in stores - happy de-humid-ing

apparently any one who purchased an item on line at B&Q on 26/12/13 may have been charged twice for their order I was charged slightly under £150 on 26.12.13 and again on 28.12.13 B&Q advised that they had refunded everyone - I phoned my credit card company and they have not refunded me - check your credit card statements everyone - PASS THIS ON.... not one single email from B&Q advising me of this problem - terrible!!

There were about 10 of these left in my local B&Q last night. I also bought a hygometer to test it out last night. I put it in my bathroom overnight and the humidity reduced from 68% to 42% overnight so I was very impressed!

The only problem is that it makes a horrendous noise. It's like a vibration noise which seems to stop when I apply pressure to the water tank by pushing it inwards into the machine, but starts again as soon as I release my hand. Reading other reviews people seem to say its a very quiet machine?!

So I'm thinking I got a dud one and will return it for a replacement, has anyone else found this machine to be overly noisy?

My 2 make a fan type noise and don't vibrate - I am very pleased with them they make a noise like a fan but not really bothered by it all - you may have a dodgy one ....

Take a look at the Meaco DD8L, I've had mine for 2 years and I'm happy to recommend it. It's not quiet but it is effective.

Worth pointing out that a dehumidifier makes a great alternative to a tumbledryer - around the same price but dual purpose. Once my flat is dry (which takes about 4 days in current weather) I can dry a load of washing, including jeans, in under 3 hours. I use mine with a 6'6" tall airer and use a duvet cover or towels to create a tent that catches the warm air. In between washes it keeps the flat dry.

Also, though it's true they cost a bit to run, heating a dry house takes less energy so that cost is partly offset. Not to mention that it's a darn sight more comfortable
