Types of dehumidifier

There are 4 different types of dehumidifier. Ebac only recommends refrigerant dehumidifiers for use in UK occupied homes. We strongly suggest you do not use a desiccant dehumidifier as they have very high running costs.

Smart Control

An automatic intelligent control system that adapts to the changing environment and controls the dehumidifier accordingly. Lower running costs and a faster solution to damp and condensation problems.

Preset humidistat

The worst control system. Not only is it not automatic and intelligent but forces humidity to be set at a pre-determined level. This type of control system will be the worst-performing of them all.

Infinite humidistat

Although a humidistat does not have the advantages of Smart Control, an infinite humidistat allows the humidity settings to be changed in smaller, 1 degree increments. A better solution than a preset humidistat.

Extraction rates

Ebac has over 50 years of experience and has sold over 1 million dehumidifiers. Based on our real-world experience almost all damp and condensation problems will be solved by removing 1.5 to 2 litres of moisture per day.

Removing more than 2 litres per day is pointless and expensive.

Too little

Removing too little moisture will not solve your problem.

Removing up to 2 litres per day is the perfect amount.
