All Dehumidifier Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Best are dessicant in this country due to cold temperature. Compressor only work in summer and piezo electric like this are useless and waste of energy for few drops of water . I would not waste my money on this . Cold. Buy dessicant instead and you will be pleasantly surprised by amount of water you can collect even in one hour from air .
Useless compared to compressor ones. These are very inefficient so best used in drier places? Costs easily 10 x as much to run, like for like? I have read that 50ml can be the extraction rate per day at 60w whereas a 230w compressor one likely will do 1 to 10 litres. Might be useful for a large cupboard?
I have this and its okay, not the fastest dehumidifier but it certainly removes water
My tumble dryer uses 3kw of electricity and takes 2h to dry a full load properly. My dehumidifier and drying rack use about 600w when both on. So 10 hours is about the same. I do agree that clothes are much softer coming out of the dryer though. Shrinkage is still an issue though clothes only shrink once, i.e. the second/ third time they are in the dryer they won't shrink any more.
More expensive than an electric heater, AND a dehumidifier? I'm not so sure. Both of those need to run all night for a load, while the dryer might use more power at peak times, it doesn't need to run for nearly as long. I also tend to find line-dried clothes are not as soft as stuff out of the dryer. I didn't think many modern textiles had problems with shrinking? I guess it depends what kind of clothes you tend to have maybe.
If you don't get condensation on your bedroom windows in winter (when your heating is off overnight), when drying clothes, or excessive moisture in your bathroom, then don't bother. But if you do need one, get this. Great bit of kit. I've had mine 7+ years and I can't fault it.
At the risk of asking a stupid question, what's the purpose of a dehumidifier? Is it only for when your house is damp? I live in a new build and haven't seen any damp or condensation at all, but I've never owned one of these before either.
I bought a meaco dehumidifier from Appliances Direct (they sent a European model with a EURO plug -tried fobbing me off with an adaptor so returned it for a refund) Got one from John Lewis instead. (3 years and still going strong)
Its still avail for 19.99 as of 2:23pm. Any opinions of those who bought earlier?
Putting lids on your pans will be more effective and economic
Bought one for the kitchen to try, it's an awful new build home where they haven't even bothered to put in a proper extraction fan that actually extracts the air outside instead of recirculating it, so boiling anything causes everything to become soaked in moisture

oofftt https://www.amazon.co.uk/Goodmans-1800ml-Dehumidifier-Smells-Condensation/product-reviews/B071WHW4CB I fancied this for the tent but might give it a miss.
Ebac have a guide explaining the difference between Desiccant or Compressor dehumidifiers. They are recommending compressor units for domestic use in the UK and claim impartial advice as they produce both. This unit is a compressor model, I've no experience but thought I'd share - https://www.ebac.com/dehumidifiers/desiccant-dehumidifiers-explained
I've had one of these de huh's for around 10 years now I use it for 4/5 months in the cold weather, it removes 2ltrs of water from our home roughly every two days, the wife thinks it might be hard on lecky but I don't think so, I'd Highly recommend this Ebac Dehumidifier 100% and I'd certainly buy another if mine stopped workin so Heat for sure from me
I can also vouch for Ecoair desiccant dehumidifiers - mine still working well 1.5 years...
Compressor dehumidifiers work great in higher room temperatures (above 15) so desiccant more effective in lower temperatures. Bought ecoair compressor it worked great but sadly died after 14 months so wouldn't buy ecoair again! I'm looking to buy a desiccant as you mentioned they're more compact comparing to compressor ones but would go for more reliable Ebac or Meaco.
We had a Delonghi DM10 compressor dehumidifier for a few years and it was OK at collection but loud and pretty big and heavy, got a desiccant one from Ecoair and seriously it destroyed the compressor dehumidifier in every way, 3 times the amount of water collection, half the noise,my daughter could easily sleep through it, much smaller & lighter my wife could move it round easier, cheaper price and only slightly more expensive to run. The Delonghi would take a 36 hours to dry a washing load, desiccant one would do it in 12 hours.We didn't have any mould come through this year and it the desiccant
And hotter. When you get it (eventually) let me know what it's like so I can say "I told you so!". :D
I posted a real world review here - it's hopeless - don't bother - but still it gets hot. I wonder about HUKD sometimes! :/
I'm keeping an eye out for a deal on the Xiaomi temperature sensors. I'm not sure about the accuracy with these things but at least the battery life should be decent.
Anything over £15 gets import duty/vat + deferment charge. Customs doesn’t wavier it but you might find the shipper has paid it.
£2.83 for a humidity meter? Yeah, you're not gonna get accurate results from that.
Keep the faith brother
These things are useless for anything other than a wendy house.
Bought 3 from Morrison's 25p each reduced to clear yesterday I didn't bother posting it because my last Morrison's deal went cold
Aren't these still 2 for £1 in poundland? (Making 4 £2?) :/ Edit: Yes, not exactly the same, but:
Great for caravans and mobile homes. Heat
I was just using one as a cheap-ish example, even though they have their limitations they'll still perform miles better than one of these. Ideally you'd have a desiccant model, we have a couple of EcoAir models and they're excellent.
Trust me...I've used this Dehumidifier and had to return it after two weeks. I'm yet to understand what's behind all their reviews. This dehumidifier is an absolute Toy. Don't get excited with the energy consumption, as a real dehumidifier would do a better job for less at the long run.
These are useful for a small room or a cupboard, BUT the price is far too high for what they are - there are many other almost identical models (water drawer the same but a switch on front top) priced around £15, some have been featured here so do a search. When temperatures are really cold, I used to find these Peltier devices would freeze up and ice formed on the tiny 'radiator' type thing, so the machine stopped working.
You mean the ones that don't work when the temperature is as low as it normally is in Britain?
Cheap dehumidifiers use peltier effect, poorly effective, useful only for a cupboard. Go for a 100 gbp one if it's for a room. I bought one on trotec really good approx 20liters per day.
Good price and not terrible looking either! I bought one of the below, just to help take some moisture out of the air when drying washing inside in winter. It's much smaller I think, and pretty ugly by comparison. Pifco Air Dehumidifier, 16 oz amazon.co.uk/dp/B00B23ISZI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_PiaRAbMBVKJJK
The screwfix one draws 3 litres of water from our house in a couple of days, this is with it set on a lower setting as well. Ours is upstairs to help with the moisture from the bathroom and from the bedrooms.
I bought this one from Amazon a week ago for £120 and its been on continuously in a flooded 3 bedroom rental property. In a week it has lowered the RH from 79% to 56%. I'm not sure where they get their figure of it removing 20 litres a day from as I think it probably removes about 3 litres a day. I have it set-up on the kitchen counter and it drains to the kitchen sink via a hose they supply with it (saves you having to go and empty it all time). I'm happy with it.
The people moaning are those who've bought a £39 dehumidifier expecting to get £390 performance out of it. Is it collecting any water at all? Yes? Then it is dehumidifying the air and therefore doing its job.
https://www.fixmyroof.co.uk/videos-and-guides/condensation-cure/piv-unit-system/# Albeit much more expensive I've been looking at installing one of these.
How much water is this getting out of the air? I don't bother and just window vac in the mornings
I used 3 of these in our caravan this winter after having problems with damp last year. They have worked really well so far.
These were £1.50 in leyton asda and was plenty left
These are a waste of time get a proper dehumidifier
Price is now £104.99.
What I don't get is that you get suspended for copy pasting comments and the day your suspension is lifted you get straight back to it .Why Sam? You do realise why you get suspended nearly every week don't you? and why spread misinformation. Have you got a dessicant fridge because compressor types don't work in your freezing cold house full of top tech? sam_of_london 30th Nov 2017 1Negative . Buy Dessicant Dehumidifier. Compressor Dehumidfiers dont work in low temperature/winter , even after the manufacturer saying otherwise. Tested several sam_of_london 27th Dec 2017 4Very poor quality compressor humidifier. I got one last from them in sale but very poor efficiency . If the place is not heated to room temperature, it would not work . And even then very poor efficiency. sam_of_london 22nd Oct 2017 1Buy dessicant dehumidifier if house not heated 24/7. Compressor ones fail at low temperature so unsuitable for UK winter.
I have one of these - it has a humidistat so will regulate the humidity down to what is set. The only downside I've had is the drain getting blocked internally and on two occasions dumping the water on my ensuite floor instead of the collecting tub.
I have been using this for the last 2 years and it does a brilliant job. I do have another well branded one Which does same job. Go for it if you are looking for one.
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.
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
how cold is your house that a compressor model doesnt work? i have an ebac which draws about 1L per day @ ambient ~20°C
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.
12 litre per day extraction rate, but only a 4 litre tank?
It 'as da scent of summat or t'other. * I'll get me coat *
Which Asda does it smell like?
That's the spec but the reality is very different. Mine wouldn't move by more than 3-4 degrees wherever it was and the humidity didn't move at all!
accuracy is very bad, not worth it in my opinion.
Some more detail below. +/-5% is about typical for these low end type of RH meters. Temperature Measuring Range: : 0~50°C (32~122F)Temperature Measuring Accuracy:: ±1°CHumidity Measuring Range:: 10%~99% (RH)Humidity Measuring Accuracy:: ±5% (RH)Power :: 2 * AAA battery (Not Included)Product DetailProducts Type: Thermometer HygrometerStyle: TrendyMaterial: PlasticSize(CM): 8.5*8.5*2.5CMPackage Contents: 1 x Thermometer Hygrometer
If these use the really cheap humidity sensors then they will become less accurate over time. The cheap thermometers are pretty good though.
Heat added (y)
I have one of these as well as a large desiccant unit, this one gets left on in kitchen 24/7 and pulls out about 150ml per day the big difference is the cost, most of these cost to run, mine has a 9v 3amp psu meaning it uses about 27watts ph, compared with the big desiccant unit at about 600wph, horses for courses @£20 or less which is what i paid about a year ago, these are fine for some uses, can't imagine how one would ice up, are there any links about that issue?
We use one of these EcoAir DC12 Compact Portable Dehumidifier, 12 L, previous to this we had used a De'Longhi DEM10; but the DEM10 seemed to struggle a lot when the temperature dropped. The EcoAir is a vast improvement and is great for us.
Thanks for the comments guys, guess I'll probably splash out on a big one instead... any suggestions?
JulianDean: Haha OP with lame "deal" buy for 8.99 most place That was an easy mutant-list addition.
i pay £6 for one from home bargains works fine dose the job
People had much luck finding one of these recently?
Which store was it in please
Hope this helps...
Thanks, but i believe it is for 16L Dehumidifier not the one in the your picture.
Also TCB couple pences
Think it might stay on continuously on Laundry mode. Not sure if still switches off after 10 hours if you don't choose a time option though. The instructions aren't that detailed really. It did stop with a check light when I tested it in the damp car and the temperature dropped to below freezing. At least I hope that's what happened. It's worked inside OK since.
That’s what I thought but it seems to do it on low and high on ours. Will try again. They way it cuts out though it makes you think it’s dead as no lights remain on just the fan until that switches off as well
I think it only does that if it's on automatic.
Just a note to everyone if it just seems to randomly cut out or won’t come on check the humidity in the house. It did this to us and it turns out the humidity was at 50% and no matter what setting you put it on it won’t take it lower than that as that’s about the ideal amount of humidity. It just cuts out immediately if the humidity is at 50% or lower
Haha, no but I've been in a lot lately! A very helpful assistant helped find the stock code and let me take a picture of the screen as I thought it would be useful. Hopefully it won't get anyone in trouble!
