your first dehumidifier can be slightly confusing. There are different
types of dehumidifier to consider, which control system is best for you,
alongside many other things to take into consideration. Here we have
outlined everything you need to think about before buying your first
dehumidifier to make sure it is right for you.
What type of dehumidifier is it?
The first thing you must think about is where you are going to use
your dehumidifier and which dehumidifier do you need? If you are using
your dehumidifier for your home, which is most likely, then a compressor
dehumidifier is what you are looking for. If it is for an industrial
setting or a garage/outbuilding, then you want a desiccant dehumidifier.
This is because the extraction rate of moisture from the air is much
higher in desiccant dehumidifiers, however, that means they are not
suitable for domestic application.
What are the running costs?
Alongside choosing which dehumidifier is right for you, you must take
into consideration the running costs. Desiccant dehumidifiers, used for
industrial settings, have much higher running costs as they take out a
large amount of moisture from the air. Compressor dehumidifiers have
much lower running costs as they take out less water from the air,
however have been optimised for home application.
This means that compressor dehumidifiers take out a suitable level of
moisture from the air in your home without coming with huge running
How is it controlled?
It is common for dehumidifiers to be controlled using a manual
humidistat. This is similar to a thermostat but instead controls the
humidity levels. With a manual humidistat, you would have to change it
frequently throughout the day. If you didn’t, the dehumidifier wouldn’t
provide the most effective rate of water extraction and this would
result in higher energy consumption.
At Ebac, we have developed a new, fully automated control system –
Smart Control. It constantly monitors the levels of moisture in your
home and automatically controls the dehumidifier to ensure it is
switched on only when it needs to be. Smart Control will solve your
condensation and damp problems in the most efficient way, with energy
savings of between £30 and £55 per year, every year. It is super
intelligent and can determine that even if the RH is low – there still
may be excess moisture and vice versa. Smart Control functions the same
as a manual humidistat, but it does all of the changing and altering so
you don’t have to.
How do you empty it?
After buying a dehumidifier, emptying the water container will become
a step in your daily routine, which means that the water container is
more important than you think. It needs to be easy to remove, to carry
and to empty, without spilling water all over your floor.
The water containers in Ebac dehumidifiers are fully enclosed with a handle for easy use.
Is it well made?
It is common to find dehumidifiers for a low price; however, this
almost always means that they have been made in China using cheap parts.
If they are made in China, this means that they have not been optimised
for the UK’s damp, ever-changing climate and therefore won’t provide
you with the best results.
All Ebac dehumidifiers are made in the UK for the UK climate, using
the highest-quality ABS polymer to make sure they perform and last well.
