12L/day claimed extraction rate dehumidifier with a 4L storage tank.

probably a compressor type but the Screwfix machines tend to be well regarded for the price

Have issues with some basic damp in the house, not too much of a concern . However I have two kids with cystic fibrosis and have been told the moisture in the air can cause chest infections. Does anyone know if this will help with that or will I need one with an anti bacterial filter. Only have a smallish 3 bed 1930s semi.

I have windows I can open and air bricks which ciculate the air
I have this for last couple of years, still doing good and working as expected.
Negative. Buy dessicant dehumidifier unless you have heating on 24/7 . Compressor ones don't work in British winter when you need them most. Also compressor ones are more noisy than dessicant

I needed one and ended up buying a dessicated one after reading several post on dehumidifiers, they cost more to buy but work in lower temperatures. I have the meaco dd8l junior. Also they are not small and light
I have been using this dehumidifier for the last two years, does a great job and never had a problem with it......should be HOT

It will help. Get a cheapo humidity reader (like a digital clock, only cost about a fiver). You can adjust the humidity to where you are happy. I have one of these, Ebac, Screwfix and Wickes sell this one,
. I am pretty sure it's the same but badged up differently. Have had dehumidifiers for 20 years, and wouldn't be without one - well 2, one upstairs and one downstairs. This one has been a good one.

Mine are used constantly for about 6 months of the year, our heating isn't on 24/7 - probably 12 hours a day when it is really cold outside. Had both versions, I prefer the compressor ones. They have performed and lasted longer.
Mine draws about a litre a day with the humidity between 50 and 60 except after baths and showers. Then it could sometimes get to as high as 69 for an hour or so.
Had our one for eighteen months, bought from Screwfix, can't remember how much it was. One of the better purchases I have made. Use to suffer from very bad condensation, this unit solved the problem. Very good for de-steaming the bathroom.

I have tried three compressor ones and three dessicant ones and reached this conclusion. If the dehumidifier is working at 5%or 1% efficiency , in actual terms , it is not working , rather wasting electricity. That is what happens with Compressor dehumidifier s at low temperature. Once you have tried Dessicant , you will not go back to compressor.

I have had 2 dessicant and 4 compressor dehumidifiers.
12 litre per day extraction rate, but only a 4 litre tank?
I've had one for 3 years, use it all the time in the box room to dry washing over the winter, never had a problem with it. Clean the filter every couple of months and it'll be fine.

how cold is your house that a compressor model doesnt work?

i have an ebac which draws about 1L per day @ ambient ~20°C

12L/day is based on some rediculous environmental conditions like 30°C/90%RH so you'll never get close to that in normal use

1L/day is about normal for dehumidifiers of this size
I've got one of these. Just out of warranty it developed a habit of leaking - the hole for the condensate to drain is very small and seems to get blocked.

This just ended up dumping all the water on the floor instead of in the tank.

They are also not very well built and will vibrate and buzz depending on which way the wind is blowing. Repositioning them will often quieten them down though.
