Oh good god, a new dehumidifier deal. Cue 50 pages debating compressor vs dessicant and dubious maths coupled with strange assumptions

(Good price by the way, just the last one escalated quickly!)

Cue me moaning about condensation too X)

good find, have some heat

Bad economy, put your £40 towards a better machine.

I'll be first to jump in then.....you have to take this in context..its £40 so it uses lower spec technology called peltier. it is not going to reduce the humidity levels in your home (fact). it is going to be reasonably cheap to run and will not need replacement parts and is nice and small and quiet. So its ideal for airing out a cupboard or damp corner of the house or small bathroom / en suite. just don't expect it to dry the house you will be disappointed. another option would be to buy more than 1 and strategically place them around the home. To lower general humidity around the home and improve comfort levels your going to pay £100 upwards.

On a desiccant model....

Either a good modern Desiccant or compressor type would be fine, but then it needs to be speccd to suit the environment, not going into here but there are pro and cons to both. Personally in the UK the Desiccant units are better suited and would be my choice.

Can I ask... I've heard that dehumidifiers are good for sticking next to clothes drying on an airer to speed up the dying process. Is that right, and if so, is this one any good for that or should I look at a better one?

I bought one very similar on ebay for about £20 - 25.00 to use on a boat, which is full of condensation. We also have a full sized compressor one. The latter takes about 4 litres per night out of the air whilst this things take about an egg-cup full.

It won't dry the washing and it won't do much else either so as a previous poster says, pay around £100 and get soemthing that does a proper job

Amazon have lots ( Eco air are good) but make sure it is a desiccant not a compressor. If you want to dry clothes (apart from desiccant being much, much better suited to the UK climate) they also give off heat! So double positive in your case

As you seem to know so much about dehumidifier :-) Is there a particular one you can recommend. we already have a Delonghi dem10 one which is pretty good. But we need another for upstairs as the condensation we have is crazy!

Compressor models give off considerable heat, especially in a closed room drying clothes.

it is very subjective as you need to buy one that fits your needs, I.e. property size, operating temps and what is important to you I.e. noise levels, running costs.

The current delonghi one you have is run using a compressor, this is noisierwill not run effectively at low temps but will cost slightly less to run. On saying that the new intelligent desiccant models are clever their energy use. If I was to give a recommendation for an average family home as a set and forget model it would be the new eco air dd128 or the dd122 classic. There are others but these 2 models are so easy to use and produce great results.

iv got the one from amazon last week. It depends I the room really in my opinion.
In one room all night it took 1 litre out and the other room it took 1liter in 3 hours.

lidl have one since yesterday for £119 with 3 year warranty

Well that is pretty obvious if the room with is a north facing damp room it will gather more water than a warm south facing room. That why mine is on the landing extracting from the whole house, just keep the doors to each room that you want to reduce humidity a jar and it will work fine with a good dehumidifier.

Do you know if the lidl one mentioned is any good?

good deal

The Lidl model is exclusive to them and made by Silvercrest so I have no experience of that model. I have bought smaller silvercrest items in the past and they have lasted well and feel sturdy / well made. Bear in mind though the Lidl model is a compressor unit so a little noisy when running ( you could not sleep in the same room) and not that good operating at sub 15 degree temps such as overnight. It will also be heavier to move about If that is an issue. I cannot comment on reliability but on paper the spec is decent with a nice big tank so less emptying. There is however not enough info regarding running costs so cannot comment there. 3 yea warranty is good but most good brands now offer 2 these days, but there is no point having a 3 year warranty if the device does not do what you wanted it to as a warranty does not cover a change of mind.

Thanks for this - just ordered one after your recommendation + reading reviews.

Makes a nice change to have an informative discussion on HUKD, rather than people moaning or leaving 3 word opinions!

I wasn't aware of the different types of dehumidifiers, but now I'll look into it.

Thanks!

Agree, when hotukdeals is at its best is when it is informative rather than just the same old deals. I also had no idea about the differences and the views here have been very helpful.

So I'm used to dessicants such as Kilrock or whatever its called. How do desssicant dehimidifiers manage to dry the air and not need dessicant replacment? Water in to desicant and then what?

The moist air enters the unit by use of a fan, the moist air then gets trapped in a rotating wheel of dessicant material, this is then heated so that the moisture drops onto a condensate plate, the material is then dry again to continue trapping moist air. The dry air is then reheated and pumped back into the room. That's the basics of it anyhow and there is no need to replace the material as it is continually dried.

one corner in my living room is really bad. its just the corner, we just repainted as it was peeling off the walls. apart from recommending a decent dehumidifier can anyone suggest what else I can do? currently have an oil rad there to dry out the damp.

Wouldn't waste your money on these unless all you want to do it keep a cupboard / draw dry. Fair better off buying a Dehumidifier like the one listed by the op, (you can get them less than £ 40 just check Amazon). The cost of replacing the materials on the aero 360 quickly mount up as I have seen them last only a few weeks at £5 a pop, and they are achieving very little in reducing humidity. Might as well open a window for an hour.

Firstly you need to confirm what the problem is that is causing the damp. Is it condensation or a leaking pipe outside causing water to penetrate the wall from outside, so I would this out first then decide what your going to do about it. If it is a leak then a dehumidifier will just mask the problem, if it is condensation then you may need to change your household habits, I.e close doors off the kitchen when cooking, same in bathroom when showering, use extractor fans if you have them. If it is just one corner and it is from condensation then it's an indication of a lack of insulation in that area I.e that corner is colder than the rest of the house, so you would need to address that by either improving the insulation or heating the room better. A good dehumidifier would be a good start as it would lower the overall relative humidity in the property allowing the heating to perform better. Hope that helps.

I've got 3 of these and bought them to help with the amount of condensation we were getting on windows. While they do collect moisture - and very slightly helped, we still had lots of condensation on windows. It's why I've just spent £160 based on an earlier recommendation as I'm fed up of having to clear the mould etc.

The 3 I have - I'll probably move into the garage to see if they help in there at all

Sounds more like penetrating damp than condensation....if it is no dehumidifier will help.

Could be caused by many things.....defective damp proof course (or something piled up beyond the level of the damp proof course, a leaking drainpipe or gutter, poor insulation etc
