As above, spotted these whilst browsing wickes website for something completely different.

Appears to be a bargain price compared to elsewhere - £319 on Amazon ?!

£230 @ Screwfix

Hope it helps someone in need.

Also a 15l version available at £99.99 was £184.99

To be fair Wickes reviews are great for this and screwfix's aren't bad either.

If you focus on the occasional negative review of any product then you'll never buy anything.

I think the damp wall should be fixed by finding the source, damp from leaking gutter, nearby water source outside property etc. The damp on the Windows is indicative of a lack of airflow in the house. Might be worth looking at a heat exchange / air vent system to move the damp air out of the house.

If the house is small and you might get away with placing the unit in a central location (near top of the stairs) and this might be ok to dry the house.

Dehumidifiers are good for localised problems e.g. busy shower areas with single glazing (e.g. in listed buildings) I think the ebac ones are well regarded they use a desiccant and will operate even in low temperatures unlike the compressor based units like the one Lidl had on sale for £119 last week with 3 year warantee. The compressor ones have a higher PEAK power consumption but can modulate their demand so can use less power if used on a lower setting. They also ramp / up / down depending on humidity but cannot work below 15 degrees C so not good for garages or cold conservatories where the desiccant ones excel. Big Clive explains here

Oh look screwfix sell this - I'll buy one from them instead

Very good find, nice one OP. Would have got one if I didn't already have a dehumidifier. Great for keeping condensation and damp down during the winter, and for indoor drying clothes.

This is an excellent dehumidifier. Real trooper. Can't recommend it enough.
I've had one of these for a couple of years now when B&Q were selling them off. Couldn't recommend it more!
Shame it's not White but it works a treat!
Ordered last one in my local but dont hold out much hope had many cancelled clearance deals

Don't suppose any of you would know or could take a good guess as to amount of energy used? I could really do with one but can't afford to be bumping up my electric bill a lot more
Ebac are Da best. Heated.

Mine is a different model and 15L I think. From memory it uses about 200W give or take. A quick Google suggests this is the right ballpark figure.

This dehumidifier is 180w, so would cost around 23p for 10 hours use. (based on 13.5p per kWh) Hope that helps.

Great find

In stock in store C&C to reserve then go and pick up.
It says suitable for 4 bed property. So where would you put this & can it work for the whole house. Doesn't seem right.

That's probably the maxium power, but it won't be running constantly (unless you have the humidity set very low or have a very damp house) so it should use far less than that, depending on those factors

Its not a leak or heavy rain causing the damp - we get far more rain in the spring & summer than in winter and it is not an issue.
Just in winter.

We had the same issues and went for one of these...

its more expensive than a dehumidifier but it's done an absolutely great job - we haven't had one drop of condensation since. It's worth having a read into. (You can get it cheaper elsewhere but I've linked to amazon to show the reviews

Interesting idea. What is the difference from the one in your link and this cheaper one do you think? Same seller but cheaper. Is it heat and to keep running costs down maybe that will be ok without heat?

It's not where they're using it, it's the coils that refridgerate that ice over... my old ebac used to do it. I've got a Meaco DD8l desiccant dehumidifier now... good in winter as it blows out hot air... so heats the room as well as removing excess moisture. Not so great if you need to use in summer though... (luckily I don't).
Had an Ebac handed down to me from my parents and it's a real work horse. Brilliant when I had my house replastered to help with the condensation

I have been considering one of these cheapest I can see it is £339.60 delivered for the newer version, than the one you listed DRI ECO HEAT HC, ?. Considering the remote sensor to go with it, is that something you have and if so is it worthwhile?

Thanks

Sorry yes I actually have the cheaper one - the more expensive one heats the air but as it's drawn in from the loft (which is generally the warmest part of a house as heat rises) i dont find that the air needs to be heated

Mine is the most basic model so it doesn't have the remote sensor and it also doesn't heat the air but it works extremely well. I guess it depends on your budget as the additional features certainly won't do any harm but also aren't necessary if you want to save a bit of money
Ordered thank you very much

Did you fit yourselves? It still needs to be connected to mains i guess? Sounds very interesting and something i will investigate further.

No I'm hopeless at DIY so we got someone in to fit it - only took them a couple of hours so didn't cost too much. Its definitely worth looking into - costs more than a dehumidifier but much less intrusive, makes no noise and doesn't need turning on and off

"costs more than a dehumidifier" do you mean buying/fitting costs or running costs too?

Just the buying/fitting costs. It's a lot cheaper to run than a dehumidifier, costs around 2p per day in electricity
This is a silly silly
