Dehumidifier Buying Myths


Dehumidifier Buying Myths

Ebac Foundation logo

There is a lot of misinformation around dehumidifiers.
As experts, Ebac hears all sorts of theories.
We’ve seen it all over the past four decades, and we’re still learning.
There is a massive difference in performance between dehumidifiers – more of a difference than most other domestic appliance, so it’s important to get the proper advice and facts.

How Does Smart Control Work?

There are four different kinds of dehumidifiers with big differences…

Designed For The British Climate

A typical UK home needs to remove between 1 and 2 litres per day.
The amount of water each dehumidifier removes depends on the prevailing conditions.
The ratings shown on dehumidifiers are often misleading because they are maximum water extractions rather than the extraction rate that will occur in the home.
This is due to many factors, including the dehumidifier control, design and defrost method.
We have experience from selling over 1.25 million dehumidifiers over four decades that running costs are the important hidden factor for most dehumidifiers.

The Real Difference...

When we tested our Ebac 2650e Dehumidifier and compared it to a Meaco Desiccant Dehumidifier, we estimated that it would cost £70 compared to £220!

Despite Desiccant Dehumidifiers having a higher extraction rate, their poor controls mean its running costs could double if misused – that’s over £440!
Desiccant Dehumidifiers and manually controlled Compressor Dehumidifiers can cost up to 300% more than Ebac’s Patented Smart Control!

If that’s not significant enough – that’s up to a mind-blowing £150 per annum in additional running costs.
