Really good and efficient unit. We have one of these bought from homebase 3 years ago and we use it a lot - especially after doing the loundry, sometimes it runs few days and nights in a row. Very useful !!
Do you have to sign up to Costco membership to purchase this?
Anyone know if this is compressor or desiccant. It doesn't seem to say.
Just so you guys know, this has a ‘Don’t Buy’ warning on the Which magazine website. Apparently there’s a risk of overheating and fire with certain Dimplex models.

I noticed that but it’s strange that they didn’t remove the warning if this is truly the case..

It’s only certain batch number and I’m sure they wouldn’t be able to continue selling them if they issued a recall.

I suppose it’s a good idea they still warn but they should stop recommending you don’t buy, it’s not very likely any of that old stock is still in the shops.

“The models affected are DXDH10N, DXDH16N, DXDH20N, FTE10, FTE16, FTE20, plus any with serial numbers starting with 501 through to 652.“
Love our little dehumidifier. Haven't needed to get a dryer since moving house since between the radiator and the dehumidifier it dries fine overnight. Whatever gets put right in the vent of the dehumidifier is dry within an hour or so. Plus we run it occasionally in other rooms prone to damp.

That was the older models from 16-17 .
This would of been manufactured well after that.
Anything cheap to bring it over £100 for £10 off?

45db noise level and 13.4kg, it definitely is the compressor type (ideal for warmer spaces)

They seldom say. Always look for sound levels and mass (weight). Dessicant are lightweight and quiet (tiny fan) and run best in cold places. Compressors have solid metal pumps which are noisy, heavy and at 20 Celsius+, far cheaper to run.

Does it use lots of electricity?
finknottle01/12/2019 14:42

Pretty expensive if so then, thanks.


Any better deals at the moment?
Does this consume alot of electricity

Dehumidifiers have fans inside, the vent blows out the air that has been dried. So there is a stream of dry air constantly coming out.

Something like this would usually draw 100-200w, so 3kWh per 24h - around 30p.
Worth bearing in mind that all the energy it uses is converted to heat, so it's more efficient than electrical heating. The extra efficiency comes from the fact that water releases heat into a surface when it condenses on it (which is why a steam scald is so dangerous). Taking moisture out of the air makes it slightly easier for regular heaters to warm the air.

If you're running it in a place that you want to be more warm and less damp then it's pretty win-win with regards to electricity.
This would have been my first purchase from the website, but for some reason it won't let me register my card/account.

Boo hiss.

I suppose that applies to Desiccant Dehumidifiers as well?

Yes, although dessicant ones do less drying and more heating because they can't recapture energy from condensation in the same way.
Gone up to 129.99?
129.99 now.
I got this the other day and it's brilliant, highly recommend it.
