One of the best around. Some absolute rubbish out there but this one is absolutely excellent as borne out by reviews. Ive had this one about 3 years and cant fault it.

Is a dehumidifier sameAs an air purifier


No theyre 2 different products.
From Which?

The Dimplex FTE20 dehumidifier does a good job of extracting water from the air, but it's also one of the noisiest dehumidifiers we've tested.
What is it?
A refrigerant (aka compressor) dehumidifier. Refrigerant dehumidifiers are the most popular kind in the UK, as they’re designed to work best in the sorts of conditions you’d have in a typical occupied household.
Dimplex says that this dehumidifier can extract 20 litres of water from the air per day, which is a lot.
Its water tank can hold 2.1 litres. Its small capacity means you could find yourself emptying it more often than you’d planned.
It has a built-in humidistat, or auto setting, which monitors the humidity levels in the room and turns itself on and off again to maintain your desired humidity level.
The frost watch feature is designed to make sure that extracted water doesn't freeze on the coils when it's cold.
What's it great at?
It pulls water from the air very quickly at room temperature. It’s OK at lower temperatures of 10°C. It’s also energy efficient and easy to use.
Is there anything I should watch out for?
Firstly, it's one of the noisiest models we've tested.
Secondly, the auto setting doesn’t work especially well. We programmed the dehumidifier to switch off when the room's humidity had dropped to a certain level, but it didn’t do so until the humidity had gone down a lot lower.
Finally, some of the controls don’t stand out particularly well, so you’ll need good eyesight to make them out.
Is there anything else I should know?
At 13kg, it’s heavier than the average dehumidifier we’ve tested. It does have wheels, though, so you can move it around without lifting it. The handles are large enough to get a good grip for lifting if you should choose to.
Should I buy it?
You could do, just be aware it's noisy - so isn't ideal if you work or study at home a lot, as it will disturb you.
Payments dont seem to be going through for some reason, anyone else had the issue?
DON’T BUY THIS, it is a 10l model in disguise, the description says removes up to a maximum of 10 litres per day, I don’t see how it is a 20l when it only removes 10l per day, nice try Costco, false advertising.

I pinched the description from another site...
Is it desiccant?
I had one of these and didn't like it at all. The humidistat doesn't really work, so it's either always on or always off, it's noisy as hell, and it's horrendously inefficient.

In the end I bought the £300 Meaco one (the 25L Ultra Low Energy) and it uses half as much electricity, grabs twice as much moisture out of the air, is quiet enough to have in a bedroom, and only needs emptying once a day even in my nominally 80% humidity Victorian terrace.

No, refrigerant.

NOPE! ...unless the efficiency of draw is 100% & it is on 24/7 ...do you know much about humidity levels & rooms?

These perform more efficiently in a heated / warmer room which obviously affects moisture levels anyway, therefore moisture capture, so you just wait till warmer weather / insulate (to prevent cold bridging) reducing the problem then run this till appropriate levels are achieved then stick on a stat to cut in periodically & maintain levels.
I bought a dimplex lower end model with a 2.5 litre capacity water holder back in the summer for around £40 (thanks hukd poster) it has a variable control humidistat, it is noisy but it sucks & blows air via impeller as it ought, & can be left to come on when you are not in the room..
Dimplex instruction stated it didn't have a variable humidistat either ...but it does.

Inventor Rise True-Zeolite Desiccant Dehumidifier 8L/Day, with Air Ioniser and 2-year Warranty amazon.co.uk/dp/…6XQ
I got this one from Amazon a couple of months ago. It's a dessicant one so puts out a little bit of heat as well, fairly quiet.
Gets good reviews.
We only use it eco mode, cause I'm tight and don't wanna spend to much on electricity
It's only an 8l model with a 2 or 2.5l tank, we usually empty it once a day.
Great for drying clothes indoor as well.

It's the 20l that arrived for me.

It's noisy, not sure about efficiency yet. At £180 less than the very good Meaco you have, think it's okay.
Just got mine, is indeed far louder than advertised, Could only recommend if you have a non-used space for it or run when not around.

The sound doesn't seem intrusive though, sortof like a loud air con unit. I've left it in the hallway, apparently it's powerful enough for a 5 bed house (I wish I had one of those). 40db is probably accurate but the library comparison is inaccurate unless that library is in a zoo.

Update-

It seems the water collection tray adds to any noise, make sure this is securely in its place.

This is an online ‘hot buy’ and was not available in stores. I queried it in store last week and they showed me the leaflet which showed it was online only.
