Nice timing, just paid £129 for one today & it's being used now so can't return

Was a desiccant version though, but @ that price I'd have stuck with a compressor one.

Are these expensive to run?

Best price for similar products elsewhere, and good reviews on Screwfix.
There's also the programmable upto 16 Litre model for a tenner more £99.99 here - Screwfix 16 Litre model

Also don't forget Quidco and Topcashback for some cashback

Buy another one at £89.99 and return it with the receipt at the dearer price.

Got one of these last time around - excellent piece of kit!

The dehumidifier police will be out in a minute, like the Apple / Android police but really, really boring!

See below for details!

In UK conditions desiccant is far better at extracting water, so you're probably better off. Reviews for this one seem to be pleased with 1 litre extracted in several hours, my desiccant dehumidifier extracts that much in around 90 minutes, at a temperature of 10 degrees centigrade.

Maybe he "bored" a small hole in his friend and is using the dehumidifier to capture the fluids oozing out?

Edited by: "trizinger28" 11th Jan 2015

been looking for a dehumidifier. but never really decide which one to buy. Anyone actually owns this one? How noisy when run it at night, because I want to use it in my bedroom.

where do you see that info?

Hot. desiccant dehumidifiers are over rated. only really useful if wanting to use in shed, garage or caravan. Compressors are good for any normal house temperature. Also desiccant uses more watts

ordered 2. One for me and one for a renter.

Anyone able to throw some light on this? The delongi dem10 is 10l a day compressor with a 2l tank. and has a similar wattage. It is recommended for 40 square rooms. These extract more water per day and have a bigger tank but are recommended for rooms 20m squared?

Who can actually say that these types of machines can actually take away the bad / damp smell away ?

Please leave your feedback as to how long it took? or if it didn't work out at all..

Cheers

smell of farts after an hour in a mould prob room !

Thanks for posting.. gone for the 16ltr for the extra oomph for drying clothes in winter but wouldn't have found it were it not for this deal.

Got the 16 ltr, but only lasted for just under a year, Screwfix replaced a new one tho. Still I personal think this kind of product will not last, on the basis that I only used it during winter.

By the way, you can't run it at night, unless you wore earplugs!

I live in a block of flats, thats built circa 1909. All brick walls very little insulation. The first flat I lived in prior to having a dehumidifer started leaking water from the ceiling, femented and started to grow mould/fungi! The land lords cleaned it off, painted, bought a very cheap delonghi dehumidifer and it never came back.

Second flat, I bought my own as the landlord was being too cheap. But it certainly helps, my clothes and towels dry within around 3-5 hours, with no need for it all to be pilled on radiators. I no longer get condensation on the windows either. Thoroughly recommend it, was a more expensive deccident model, but I can sleep through it.

TL:DR - I can confirm it does remove bad/damp smells and removes damp and excess water.

Typical I have been looking out for one and decided to get this one at Argos Honeywell 10 litre but it does have 3 year warranty and I did use £70 of nectar points so not too bad.
Looks good deal heat added.

I wouldn't apologise.
Most of us like losing pedantic type's. (_;)

Decided on this one rather than the £99.99 16ltr as the reviews seem to suggest (to me anyways) that this one is quieter
Thanks for the heads-up OP.

Define normal house temperatures, it's worth remembering that ratings for compressor dehumidifiers are generally measured at 30 degrees centigrade and at a relative humidity of 90%, i.e. basically as if you lived in Florida. At 20 degrees and high British relative humidity of 70%, the efficiency will be less than half, possibly as low as a third. As temperature drops below 15 degrees, the fall off is catastrophic.

Desiccant dehumidifiers extract the same regardless of temperature, in the same conditions that your compressor is extracting half it's rating, the desiccant will still achieve its rated amount. They will still achieve nearly the same rated amount even down to 5 degrees.

So your compressor dehumidifier might be burning half the power for the same rated extraction, but you need to run it twice as long to get the same extraction, so swings and roundabouts.

If you like your house at 20 degrees or higher, then you can choose either type and probably be happy. If you only run you dehumidifier in the winter or have a cooler house than 20, then you should be looking at desiccant dehumidifiers, which not only extracts water, but warms the house as a result of burning more electricity.

I'm a relatively recent convert to desiccant types, previously having used and warn out 2 Ebacs and tested my new desiccant in the same room, temperature 15 to 17 degrees most of the time, against a compressor type (cheap large noisy Aldi type from HUKD a year or so ago) rated at nearly double the extraction. The desiccant dehumidifier, not only is quieter, it's currently extracting at around 8x the level of the compressor type. The ALDI is rated at 2/3 the power consumption of the desiccant.

We'll see how it goes in the future and when I see my next electricity bill, but as I tend to open windows and doors in the summer, I really only use the dehumidifier in the winter, it's clear which should be better, and my house definitely feels drier.

is it worth paying a extra £10 for the 16ltr one?

everyone has different opinions on this
here is a review on a meaco compressor dehumidifier on amazon

have only had this machine for one day but my initial impressions are very positive.

Yesterday I tested its performance back to back for a few hours with my 1 year old Ecoair DD122FW Simple (a Desiccant machine) in our unheated laundry room filled with wet laundry on airers. The ambient temperature of the room ranged from 13.5C to 18.5C (I have a humidstat with thermometer on wall) over the test period.

I couldn't believe that over the test period the new Meaco extracted 920ml of water while the DD122FW managed just 505ml. The DD122FW was in low fan mode (drawing about 335 watts) and the Meaco was on low fan mode (drawing 240 watts - tested with energy meter plug). I've done the maths and in terms of litres of water extracted per watt of energy used, the new Meaco was at least 150% more energy efficient than the desiccant unit. I say "at least" because the Meaco spent a significant part of its running time in "defrost mode" drawing only 28 watts. I suspect in reality it may have been close to 200% more energy efficient.

Based on my usage rate the £100 extra in purchase cost of the Meaco over the DD122FW should be recouped in under a year.

I bought the new Meaco to save energy when drying laundry as, while it does a good job a drying, I'm conscious my DD122FW consumes a lot of power due to the heat created which is great if you want heat a room. From now on I will use the DD122FW as a low powered fan heater when I need the heat. The way I look at it is if you can benefit from all the heat it produces, it effectively dehumidifies for free.

Personally I think all dehumidifiers sold in UK should be rated on litres/KwH when running in a 18C/60%RH environment. That is the figure that most buyers really want to know (or at least should want to know!).

Hi Sarah, it would definitely help, mould need moisture to grow, so if you are stopping it get too wet it will definitely help, but you would probably also want to treat the area, give it a good clean then either buy mould killer (or just use bleach), maybe even use a stain blocker to be thorough.

16L one ordered to collect today - great deal, thanks.
