Cheap dehumidifiers will not last
There are many low-cost dehumidifiers available. We have tested them
all – they are made from cheap plastic and cheap components and not
optimised for the UK climate. They may last a few months but they will
not last and will not solve your problem in the long term.
Made in China are not UK climate optimised
Today most dehumidifiers are made in China and are made to a
specification that suits all European countries. The UK has a wet,
temperate climate, not suffering from extremes of heat or cold. Our
weather means that we suffer from condensation and dampness in the
winter. Ebac dehumidifiers are configured differently to work in UK
homes to control condensation compared to working in tropical
conditions. Our 50 years of extensive experience, expert knowledge and
on-going research allow us to ensure Ebac dehumidifiers are the most
effective within the UK.
Desiccant is not right for domestic applications
The two primary dehumidifiers on the market today are desiccant
dehumidifiers and compressor (sometimes known as refrigeration)
dehumidifiers. Each of these two types of dehumidifiers have unique
attributes that make them suitable for different applications depending
on the prevailing conditions. Ebac manufacture both types of
dehumidifiers and are best placed to give completely impartial advice.
We do not recommend desiccant dehumidifiers for use in domestic
applications. They do remove a lot of water but most of it is
unnecessary and they are very expensive to run.
Control system is key, don’t use a humidistat
In order to run efficiently a humidistat needs constant adjustment.
The appropriate relative humidity varies through the day based on
factors such as the external temperature, moisture created and
temperature in the home. Ebac’s Smart Control takes a reading every hour
and decides whether to run or not based on the history of humidity in
the home. Thereby minimizing costs whilst solving the problem. A
humidistat-controlled dehumidifier will almost certainly run more often
than it should and cost the user a substantial amount in running costs
with no benefit. In practice, a humidistat-controlled desiccant
dehumidifier will consume even more than £150.
The water container is important
At Ebac, we recommend that you empty the water container on your
dehumidifier daily so that it can perform at the highest ability. To do
this, you need to make sure that the water container on the dehumidifier
you are buying is properly sealed with a handle. Many are not, which
can be inconvenient and messy when emptying daily. Ebac dehumidifier’s
water containers are well-sealed and have a handle for easy removal and
