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.
Ideal for UK domestic applications like removing damp and condensation
Reasonable for small levels of water extraction
Not suitable for UK domestic applications due to the very high running costs
Only work in very small areas such as cupboards
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.
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.
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.
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.
Removing too little moisture will not solve your problem.
Removing up to 2 litres per day is the perfect amount.
