Dehumidifiers are highly effective against condensation. Unfortunately, buying a dehumidifier isn’t a straightforward process. Here, we’ll guide you through the 10 things you need to consider when buying a dehumidifier.
1. Price Range
When it comes to dehumidifiers, cheap isn’t cheerful. Cheap dehumidifiers are made with low-quality parts that don’t work effectively. The parts will likely be fragile and brittle, breaking easily.
2. Running Costs
If you buy the cheapest dehumidifier, you’ll likely pay more in the long run. Cheap dehumidifiers have high running costs as they’re less efficient.
3. Dehumidifier Type
Different dehumidifier types are built for varying purposes. Desiccant dehumidifiers are made for unheated sites with lots of moisture in the air. Whereas compressor dehumidifiers are explicitly made for UK homes.
4. Control System
Manual control system will need constant monitoring throughout the day. Automatic control systems like Ebac’s Smart Control do all the monitoring for you, changing the settings according to the air’s moisture levels.
5. Water Container
Ensure you get a dehumidifier with a closed water container and an easy-to-use handle. This reduces the risk of spills.
Check the dehumidifier model works for the size of your home and the number of occupants. Ebac lists this information on its website.
7. Where It’s Made
Chinese-manufactured dehumidifiers are cheap but aren’t built for UK homes. They’re tailored to European homes which suffer from hot temperatures and humidity rather than cold temperatures. They’re ineffective in UK homes.
Ebac’s dehumidifiers are built with UK homes in mind.
Your dehumidifier will be a permanent feature in your home, so you want it to be quiet. Check the dehumidifier has a quiet mode so it fades into the background.
Check the dehumidifier for essential features such as how easy it is to move, whether it shuts off automatically when it’s not needed (like dehumidifiers with Smart Control), and if it has a defrost mode.
A dehumidifier is an investment. Dehumidifiers made with top-quality parts will often come with a warranty of at least 12 months. Steer clear of dehumidifiers with no warranty, as this is a sign of low-quality parts.
