Find the UK’s best dehumidifiers 2016 with our intensive review.
If your home is suffering from signs of condensation and damp you’ll soon be facing condensation on your windows along with mould on your walls. To tackle humid air inside your living space and spare you from these symptoms a dehumidifier is the right choice.
It is designed to balance the rooms humidity to a comfortable level for you, preventing any signs of condensation.
Should you be struggling with these signs read our dehumidifier review 2016 below to find everything you need to know and how to find the best one for you.
There are two types of dehumidifiers, both designed to draw excess moisture from the air.
See the two main types below.
|Refrigerant Dehumidifiers||Desiccant Dehumidifiers|
|Also known as compressor dehumidifiers. Air is drawn in through a filter and over cold coils on which the water then condenses and drips into the water tank. They work very well in higher temperatures and humidities, therefore being the best choice for most UK households.||Water is extracted by an absorbent material which is then heated in order for the moisture to drip into the water tank. As they heat the absorbent material they also use more energy than refrigerant dehumidifiers and also are more suitable for colder environments like basements, cellars or garages.|
If you’re not quite sure if you need a dehumidifier and are unaware of any excess moisture in your house check for these symptoms to see if a dehumidifier is necessary.
Once you have determined which rooms or parts of your house need dehumidifying, make sure these basics are given when choosing the best dehumidifier for you.
To determine which dehumidifier is the most suitable for you you’ll have to consider a couple of things. The best dehumidifiers are very fast when it comes to moisture extraction. Though this is also dependent on how much capacity the machine has.
Don’t mix this up with water tank capacity though. A dehumidifiers water tank capacity tells how much water the machine can hold at one time whereas the actual capacity says how much water can be extracted from the air per day.
You should aim for a room’s humidity to be somewhere between around 50% – 60%.
Our dehumidifier reviews have shown that the capacity usually ranges from about 0.5 to 20litres. If you’re covering a small room or area, a small capacity dehumidifier will do. Go large if you’re covering your entire flat or house or even consider whole house dehumidifiers.
The larger the capacity, the more expensive the dehumidifier!
Depending on the area that needs dehumidifying you’ll have to pick a device that has the correct size according to available space and humidity.
Most manufacturers print an easy-to-follow sizing chart on the packaging of their dehumidifiers to help you pick the right size for the space.
It’s hard to recommend the right size for your household, though our best buy dehumidifiers actually managed to cover multiple rooms despite some being relatively small.
Our dehumidifier review 2016 also took into account such a simple thing as noise. After all if your dehumidifier is running all day or even continuously, it shouldn’t disturb you or other people in your house. Generally even when going full speed the best dehumidifiers never exceeded a comfortable noise level and will be considerably more quiet when operating on a low power level.
The best dehumidifiers noise levels range from 30dB to 45dB. They should never exceed 50dB as they’ll become annoyingly loud after that.
The best dehumidifiers come with useful extra features which we’ve listed below for you to see.
|Continuous Drain Facility||This allows you to connect a hose and flush the collected water directly away to a low-level drain. You’ll no longer have to empty the water tank. The best dehumidifiers will have supplied hoses.|
|Frost Watch||Refrigerant dehumidifiers often have technology to prevent water from freezing on the cold coils when pulled from the air. Desiccant dehumidifiers will not need this because of the way they function.|
|Humidistat||This monitors the moisture in the air. Instead of repeatedly turning your dehumidifier on and off, you can let it do this by itself to maintain your desired humidity level.|
|Integrated Cord Storage||This helps save space if the dehumidifier isn’t in use, as well as removing the risk of tripping over a rogue cable.|
|Timer||You can programme the dehumidifier to turn on and/or off after a certain period of time, which could help you save electricity.|
|Wheels/Castors||These let you easily roll the machine around so you won’t need t lift it into place.|
