This dehumidifier looks sleek and modern and is light enough to move between rooms if needed. It also has a 24-hour timer and sleep display that makes it ideal for use through the night.
This dehumidifier uses refrigerant to pull moisture out of the air, which is then stored in its water tank. It is relatively quiet and can be used in smaller spaces such as box bedrooms or utility rooms.
Blysscurve Reusable Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air, combating condensation, damp and mould growth – ideal for homes with flats or a smaller property that suffer from excessive humidity levels. They can also help those with breathing conditions such as asthma, who are more prone to attacks when they live in damp homes.
This Blysscurve dehumidifier is small and compact, fitting neatly in any room without taking up much floor space or causing an eyesore. It’s also lightweight and easy to move around if you want to use it in different rooms.
It’s easy to set up and simple to operate, with a monitor that shows you your current humidity level when switched on. You can choose to set a target humidity percentage and it switches off automatically when reached. It’s one of the quieter models too, making it suitable for use in a family area. It comes with a hose for easy drainage. You simply place the dehumidifier a foot or two above the floor and run a hose to a drain.
MeacoDry Arete One Dehumidifier
When it comes to dehumidifiers, MeacoDry is renowned for their high-performing and affordable range. The company’s latest model, the Arete One, is no exception. It’s been rated 4.5 out of five stars by Amazon customers who love how effective, quiet and easy it is to use.
The Arete One’s monochrome design looks sleek and modern, too. It’s a lot more compact than previous MeacoDry models and, when viewed from the front, it’s surprisingly unobtrusive.
MeacoDry have also made the Arete One incredibly energy efficient. It uses a relatively low 151W when it’s operating, which at current electricity prices works out as around 4p per hour. It also has a night mode that turns off the lights, switches to fan noise at a low level and stops the bleeps, meaning it’s as close to silent as a dehumidifier can get.
Russell Hobbs RHDH2002 20L Dehumidifier
This large dehumidifier from Russell Hobbs is ideal for drying laundry, reducing humidity and minimising physical signs of dampness and condensation in your home. It’s suitable for rooms up to 50m2 and boasts a 3L water tank with a handy water full alarm that alerts you when it needs emptying. It also has a timer, smart mode and dryer setting for an extra boost on laundry day. There is a continuous drainage function, too; simply connect a hose to a low-level drain and the dehumidifier will flush away water continuously.
One downside to this model is that it uses a lot of energy – up to 440W, which at current electricity prices will cost around 13p per hour to run. This makes it more expensive to use than the MeacoDry Arete One, though it still remains a good value dehumidifier overall. It’s also rated well by customers, with many noting how powerful and effective it is at what it does best.
Ecoair EC3500 Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers help control humidity, which prevents dampness, mildew and mould. They also reduce respiratory problems and speed up laundry drying times. They can also save on energy bills by reducing heating costs.
Rooms that feel slightly damp or have visible condensation can benefit from medium-capacity dehumidifiers. The four recommended models in CR’s ratings get strong or excellent scores in our water-removal test, and all but one are relatively quiet.
Some have a continuous drainage option to avoid having to empty the tank, and most are easy to move between rooms. They can also be set to Eco mode for energy savings or Laundry mode for quick damp treatment and then switched back to the normal setting. They’re also relatively small, making them easier to fit into tight spaces. They typically vent out the top, but some have a front-facing fan. They’re not suitable for basements, though.large dehumidifier uk
