Was in my local Aldi in Prestwick today and they had 3 of these by the front door. Couldn't see a ticket but the shop assistant confirmed they had just been reduced from £99.99 which is the price still showing on Aldi's website.

Use one of these for drying the washing during the winter months and it works 10 times better than a tumble dryer.

Comes with a 3 year warranty
Auto switch-off
20 litre moisture extraction per day
5.5 litre tank capacity

Do you know what the electricity consumption is on this model?

Edit: 350w - 420w, to much for me.

may sound like a stupid question, but will this get rid of the condensation on my windows that occurs most days especially in the winter..... especially in the bedrooms upstairs.... had the double glazing replaced a couple of years ago, but they still experience condensation..... any advice or info would be appreciated... many thanks...

Yes it should do

Op is this the model you use for drying your laundry?

Is it rechargeable or main powered. Need one for bathroom but no power sockets in there.

Is this the dessicant or compressor type?

​Yes, it works great for drying laundry. But you will need a warm room. Efficiency drops in the cold.

Hi, educated guess based on price point and extraction rate this would be compressor so reduced efficiency under 17 degrees C but would still remove moisture below but with diminishing returns.

At this power usage it's going to be mains only but with this specification should do the job from the hallway if door opened after in a warm house. If it pulls enough water to dry cloths it should keep on top of the moisture from a hot shower.

Thanks for posting op, heat added!

Totally agree. I bought a meaco 3 years back and never had problems with humidity. Dry all my washing using this during winter months. Leave it on at night and 6-7hours later clothes are nicely dry

can any one else confirm this price in other stores

​not a stupid question, yes it will do u will be quitsurprised at how much water there is in the air and our houses I got one about 2 years ago a desiccant one if this is one then it's a good buy as these heat the air aswell so room feels warmer aswell it will probably need stay in for most of the time for 2/3 weeks before the moisture content becomes upto a decent level I would buy a humidity meter aswell they cheap off ebay or maybe a car boot sale to monitor the levels around 40-50 percent is a good level don't try go further than this it starts drying ur skin if ur sensitive

just checked in chelmsford store it is £99.99
not on sale

this has a laundry drying mode to. Not sure how it works though.

This is not suitable for British climate unless you keep the heat on all the time. And then you don't need dehumidifier. The best at low temperatures are dessicant. I have ecoair classic which is dessicant.

I have both a compressor one and dessicant. Wouldn't like to run the heat generating dessicant one in the summer months. It would get far too hot

Most (if not all) desiccant dehumidifiers would incorporate a thermistor, so the heating element will only turn on at a low (enough) temperature such that the dehumidifier can continue to operate efficiently and extract the moisture. I have run my own desiccant dehumidifier in warmer periods, and it definitely doesn't output any warm air, but it certainly does output warm air if I run it in a unheated room in colder periods.

A dehumidifier will help, but the real fix for condensation on your glazing is to increase the dew point, in simple terms the rooms either need improved insulation, ( which should help raise the room temp ) or the rooms need to be heated (perhaps just by a few degrees ) so the air in the room is slightly warmer, such that moisture in the air can't form water vapour (condense). That vapour is always going to be attracted to the coldest surface it can find, and in most rooms during a cold period, that is going to be your glazing. The dehumidifier will of course remove some of the vapour / condensate once it is has formed, so will help cut down the condensation on the glazing. Ideally you want to stop the condensate vapour forming in the first place, and that will be achieved most effectively by raising the dew point. Hope this helps !

what I do, just leave it outside the bathroom with the air blasting into it, I have the eco air from amazon, it actually keeps the entire house at 50% (including the bathroom), it has 12l-18l extraction, so the one in OP, if it is really 20l, will be even better

Did anyone find out if this is Compressor based or Desiccant? going by the power rating I would say the latter.

We've been using a Desiccant Eco Air for nearly a year and its been faultless, I would never use a compressor dehumidifier due to the noise, its limited effective operating Temp range and the fact they seem to be recalled often due to fire risks. True, Desiccant's pump out warm air but you don't really notice it during the summer months but it is a welcome and noticeable addition during the colder winter months.

Should be taking a look this evening so should be able to confirm for you if either of our two stores have stock.

It's a compressor

Looks like store specific as £99 in my local

£99 in both our local stores, called customer services and it should be £99 in store so not national.

OK took ours for a spin, switch on in our living room, starting at 68% humidity got 600ml ish in 1.5 hours our thermo stat on 16 in hallway about 18 degrees in the livingroom. Left unit running over night in spare room low heat 15-16 over night unit reached preset humidity of 55 down from 69 and removed 2 litres. Happy with performance no condensation downstairs this morning. Going to run it upstairs today, just moved up humidity 69 in main bedroom ;-) hoping to see that go down.....

​rubbish, so long as the temp is above 5 degrees Celsius indoors it's fine. Note to others that all dehumidifiers generate heat.

Guess you meant to put 15 like the manufacturers say

Not sure about these. Had mine on for nearly 2 weeks now. It does pull plenty of water out but if I put my % at, say, 55 it runs and runs until it gets to around 52, knocks of for no more than 30 seconds by which time the reading is back up to 58%, runs again to bring the reading down to 52 in about 20-30 minutes and it all starts again. It's the same regardless what % I set it at. This is my second one, returned the first one because I thought it was faulty but this one is the same.

£65 at my local

I'm looking for a humidifier and see that lots of people recommend getting a Desiccant type but some of the ones I'm looking at don't seem to say if they are desiccant or compressor. Is there a way to work it out from other info given?

you could check their mentioned weight, desiccant ones are usually around 7kg while compressor one will be around 13 kg or over.
aldi compressor one is 17 kg
