Best Dehumidifiers in Uk: Review of Our listed products

Ebac 2250e 15 Litre Dehumidifier

This is the first product of our list and it’s definitely one of the best  UK dehumidifiers  for sure.  Built and designed for the great British climate, Ebac 2250e  is definitely one of the best dehumidifiers out there. With this product, solving the issue of mould, condensation and damp is as easy as it gets.

Ebac 2250e Dehumidifier is capable of extracting 15 litres of water in a day which is enough for 2-3 bedrooms. Needless to say that this dehumidifier is perfect for most apartments. Then you have the carbon filtration system. Its carbon filtration system improves the air quality of your house by neutralizing household odour and rest assured that it’s extremely efficient at its job. Plus, Like most good dehumidifiers, Ebac 2250e makes sure that you can easily dry your clothes with the laundry drying mode

Now let’s talk about convenience. Its water container can hold up to 3.5 litres of water and when it’s full, the dehumidifier will be switched off automatically. Adding features like this just makes it so efficient. You will definitely hear the sound of the fan when it pulls moist air in order to extract water. But it won’t necessarily bother you unless you are a bit fastidious.

The smart technology that has been used in this dehumidifier is absolutely amazing because it’s capable of doing so many things. That’s why the Ebac 2250e  is one of the most convenient dehumidifiers of our list. First of all, it’s completely automatic.  It can detect moisture levels. If moisture levels are high, then it switches on and when the levels are low, it switches off. So you barely need to worry about it because the dehumidifier operates when you need it to operate. Because of the smart technology, it operates only when the moisture levels are high and it switches off when the moisture levels are low. Basically, it operates when it needs to. As a result, it does not consume unnecessary electricity. In that sense, it saves both energy and money.

Pros
  • Easy to use
  • Smart technology also saves energy and money.
  • Carbon Filtration Systems are extremely efficient at improving air quality.
  • Easy to use.
  • Lasts longer than most other purifiers.
  • Really affordable.
Cons
  • Slightly heavy. So moving it around can be an issue because it does not come with castor wheels.

Pro Breeze 12L/Day Dehumidifier

This is the second product of our list and like the first one, this one is also good at fighting against black mould, condensation and dampness. But we’ll be honest with you about the product. It won’t mesmerize you with its elegance and adaptability. However,  if you want something simple but effective and affordable, then this is it. It offers some of the most simple and useful features. That’s the reason why it’s so adept at its job.

It can extract 12 litres of water in a day which is not bad at all. It’s not as good as the first one. But it’s good enough to get rid of the mould and damp issues people face. It has a 1.8-litre Water Tank which isn’t something to be ecstatic about. But then again, we have seen dehumidifiers that offer smaller tanks. When it’s full, it shuts off automatically. It also includes a continuous drainage hose. if you want a permanent drainage solution.

Its automatic humidity sensor helps you to set a fixed room humidity between 30%-80%. It will turn off automatically when this level is reached. Then there is that issue with portability. The weight of the product is 22 pounds and it’s not easy to handle a 22-pound dehumidifier. But that won’t be the case with the Pro Breeze 12L/Day Dehumidifier. Because of its castor wheels, you can relocate it anywhere. 

It’s easy to use a dehumidifier that has a “Pro Breeze LED Display”. You can easily control the unit. It can display room humidity levels and you can control 3 dehumidification modes- auto, continuous, and sleep mode. As you can see, it’s quite versatile and dynamic. Furthermore, you can schedule the device to turn on or off with the built-in timer. It’s just one of the many reasons why the dehumidifier is so easy to use.

Pros
  • Excellent portability
  • Easy to operate
  • Reasonable price.
Cons
  • The water tank could have been slightly bigger

EcoAir DD1 Simple Desiccant Dehumidifier

Now, we won’t recommend you to buy it if you live in a big apartment. It’s actually suitable for smaller areas. Having said that, it’s extremely effective and eventually, it will get the job done. This is the only desiccant dehumidifier on our list. Desiccant dehumidifiers are known to be eco-friendly, quiet and lightweight. Having said that, they consume a lot of energy.

The extraction rate is on the lower side. It can extract only 7 litres of water in a day. So it is not really an ideal dehumidifier if you live in a big house. But then again, you may want to buy a dehumidifier only for a  single room. In that case, this dehumidifier from EcoAir can be a perfect choice. The extracted water will be held in a water tank that can hold 2 litres of water which isn’t too bad. If you want, you can use its drainage hose. So you won’t have to empty the tank all the time.

Its nano silver filter can trap dust and pollen which means the air quality of your room will be pretty good indeed. Furthermore, when you tilt the devices, it automatically shuts off to make sure that you won’t have any trouble moving it around.

 Now let’s talk about Its versatility. It offers both Economy  Mode and Turbo Mode. This is probably the best aspect of this particular device. It’s one of the reasons why it’s so versatile and effective. In Economy mode, the device uses minimum energy. On the other hand, if you have severe damp issues, you can choose the Turbo Mode for rapid dehumidification.  

Portability can be an issue with some of the dehumidifiers that you see in the market. But that won’t be the case with this one. The weight of the product is only 6 kg. To make things better, it also has a fold-away handle. It doesn’t get easier than that. So basically, you can carry it and take it wherever you like. That’s probably the biggest advantage of this dehumidifier.

In the end, the last thing we need to talk about is the control panel. We’ll be honest. Its control panel isn’t really as cool as the smart technology that you see in some of the other dehumidifiers. But still, it does the job. For some people, the Rotary Dial Control Panel is actually more convenient. The humidity level can be set between 35 per cent to 80 per cent RH.

Pros
  • Portability is outstanding
  • Quiet operation
  • Extremely versatile as it offers almost all the necessary features
Cons
  • Not suitable for bigger areas
  • Even though it features the “Economy Mode”, it still consumes a tremendous amount of energy as it is a desiccant dehumidifier.

Meaco 20L Low Energy Dehumidifier

It’s difficult not to be impressed with this dehumidifier. It has everything and we mean “Everything”. Without a doubt, it’s one of the best dehumidifiers in Uk and we have to talk about it.

The extraction rate is 20 litres/day. With this extraction rate, it can clearly cover a home that has 3-5 bedrooms. It’s a dehumidifier that will thrive in large areas. Plus, you’ll get a 6-litre water tank and the dehumidifier automatically shuts off when the tank is full. And like most dehumidifiers, it also features laundry mode to dry your clothes

Now, The interesting and exciting part of this product is that it consumes so little energy. This is where the Meaco 20L Dehumidifier stands out. It only needs 255 watts for its extraction rate. A lot of dehumidifiers need a lot more power to extract only 10 litres of water. Needless to say that it’s the best dehumidifier when it comes to saving money. Having said that, The dehumidifier is a bit heavy. But you don’t need to worry because it has “easy glide castors” so that you can move it anywhere.

This appliance from Meaco features a Hepa filter which is another reason why it is so popular. The HEPA filter is so good when it comes to purifying the air. So basically, the device is doing two things- extracting moisture and improving the air quality. It can be extremely useful if you are allergic to dust mites. Lastly, we must talk about the control panel. It’s not the best control panel but not the worst either. Its digital display will show you the room humidity all the time.

Pros
  • When it comes to saving money and energy, it is indeed one of the best dehumidifiers in the Uk. In fact, it’s the best one of our list
  • Improves air quality
  • Even though it’s a bit heavy, it has castor wheels so that you have no issues with portability.
  • Massive water tank
Cons
  • Can be a bit noisy while operating
  • Even though it consumes less energy and saves money, it is a bit expensive

Ebac 3850e Most Powerful 21 Litre Dehumidifier

We have another product from Ebac, and this one is better if you are looking for a dehumidifier that covers more area. This British made product offers better functionality and convenience. Without a doubt, it’s one of the best dehumidifiers in the UK. Before we talk about it, you should keep in mind that some of its features will seem familiar because we already talked about a dehumidifier from Ebac. 

 Let’s start with the extraction rate. Capable of extracting 21 litres of water in a single day,  the Ebac 3850e dehumidifier can easily cover 4-5 bedrooms. So it’s ideal for a large property, and it’s definitely one of the best dehumidifiers for basements. Its 2.5-litre water container will contain the extracted water. When the container is full, it will be switched off automatically. 

It also has a carbon filter and we have already talked about the carbon filtration system. Basically, it improves the quality of air in your home. And of course, it features Ebac’s dedicated laundry mode.

Like the previous Ebac dehumidifier, this one also features Ebac’s patented smart technology which means it can detect the moisture levels. It switches on and off depending on the moisture level. As you already know, because of the smart technology, it knows when to operate and when not to operate. Thus it saves energy and money. The unit itself works at 320 Watts- hour which is pretty standard. Needless to say that smart technology makes it easier for you to use it

Even though it has some of the best features that a dehumidifier can offer, there is an issue with the noise level.  it’s definitely not the quietest dehumidifier when it operates. A 21 Litre Dehumidifier is bound to be a bit noisy. But it shouldn’t really bug you. We are pretty confident about that.

Pros
  • Good at saving energy and money
  • Really easy to use because of the smart technology
  • Ideal for big rooms
  • Lasts longer
Cons
  • Can be a bit heavy
  • Very expensive. If you need a dehumidifier for a single room, then we recommend you not to buy it.

PureMate 20L/Day Portable & Compact Dehumidifier

According to us, this one is probably the best looking dehumidifier of our list. There is just something about it. Having said that, style doesn’t really matter in the end. Eventually, the best aspect of a dehumidifier is “Versatility”. So let’s just talk about it so that we can understand the product. Then decide whether you want to buy it or not

Removing 20L of moisture per day, this dehumidifier is designed to create a healthy environment for houses with up to 5 bedrooms. Furthermore, It’s massive 6.5-litre tank will add to your convenience. And of course, it offers continuous drainage features like most good dehumidifiers you see in the market. Furthermore, laundry mode is also available.

Detecting the room humidity is another of its specialities. There are a lot of dehumidifiers out there that can detect room humidity. So most of you will think that it’s nothing special. But this particular sensor is extremely accurate and efficient. Of all the products we have mentioned, none of them can detect the humidity level as accurately and quickly as this one.

The control panel is pretty easy to manage. It won’t blow your mind but we are pretty sure that you’ll like it.  Its LED display is decent and its child lock system is quite useful. It also offers sleep Mode where you can turn off the display lights and enjoy your sleep. You’ll have other necessary features as well.

A 14-kg dehumidifier should have castor wheels. Otherwise, it becomes difficult for everyone to move it around. Fortunately, you will get four castor wheels that are conveniently located. Furthermore, a 3-light indicator system will let you know the humidity level of your room or house. You’ll have the blue light, green light and the red light.

Pros
  • Easy to use
  • The price is reasonable and it’s definitely affordable
  • Portability is great considering the weight of the product
  • Durability is pretty impressive
Cons
  • It does not really offer a good energy-saving smart technology. So Power consumption is an issue.

NETTA Dehumidifier 12L/Day

Our list of the “Best Dehumidifiers in the UK” is almost done. We are here with another dehumidifier that is quite popular among the customers. But to be honest, it doesn’t really have some sort of mind-blowing cutting edge technology. At its core, it’s pretty average.

So why is it so popular?

Well, the main reason is that it’s a kind of product that comes with all the necessary features and yet the price is within your grasp. We are not saying that it’s the cheapest 12l dehumidifier in the market but it’s affordable. Keep in mind that some of the 12L dehumidifiers will be a lot pricey.

Removing up to 12 litres of water in a day, this dehumidifier will put one heck of a fight against damp, condensation and mould. To store the extracted water, you’ll have a 1.5litre-water tank. To be honest, we prefer bigger tanks. Then again, no product is perfect. Fortunately, you’ll get the drain hose. We recommend you to use that if you want nothing to do with emptying the water tank.

When the tank is full, it will automatically shut off and the indicator light will let you know that the tank is full. So it’s a nice feature to have. The control panel also makes things pretty easier.  Plus, with two fan speed modes,  24h timer and automatic restart, it will make your life easier.

The weight is slightly on the heavier side. So it features much needed integrated castor wheels that make sure that you can easily move it around. Plus, you’ll have the carry handle which means you won’t have any trouble at all. Keep it wherever you want and wherever you need.

Pros
  • Easy to operate
  • Sleek and elegant design
  • Lasts longer
  • Affordable
Cons
  • The water tank is a bit small

Finether Dehumidifier 12L/D Home Air Dehumidifier

This is the last product of our list and we are pretty excited about it because it’s the most affordable 12L dehumidifier of our list. Even though it’s affordable, it’s packed with plenty of features that will help you to solve all the issues you have in your house due to moisture. Rest assured that it’s extremely adept and versatile.

 The extraction rate is 12 litres/ day. If you need a dehumidifier for 2 rooms, then you can consider buying it. The water tank can hold up to 1.5 litres of water. If you look at the other dehumidifiers, you’ll see that most dehumidifiers have bigger water containers. We recommend that you use its 9.5mm drainage hose. The dehumidifier stops automatically when the tank is full. There is this “tank full indicator” which turns red when the tank is full. It’s a feature that most good dehumidifiers have and Finether Dehumidifier is no exception. 

Its touch button control panel is a typical “easy-to-operate” control panel which has all the features you need. The fan speed and the compressor will adjust automatically in different environments. Plus, the child-lock function will add more convenience. Overall, operating it is pretty easy. But carrying it is not because the weight of the dehumidifier is  10 kilograms, which means it needs wheels. Fortunately, it actually comes with wheels and a carry handle. So taking it from one room to another is not a problem at all.

Lastly, we must talk about its carbon filter. The filter can eliminate unwanted odours and filter the air. Rest assured that the filter is extremely efficient at its task. So basically, the air becomes healthier for you to breathe. If you or one of your family members have severe respiratory issues, then this dehumidifier can be a solid choice because of its affordability.

Pros
  • Improves air quality
  • beautiful design
  • Affordable and versatile.
  • Easy operation

And that’s it. We are done with our review of the best dehumidifiers in Uk. Now, keep in mind there are plenty of other good products out there in the market. But we feel that these are some of the best dehumidifiers in the UK. 

How to buy the best dehumidifier (Dehumidifier Buying Guide)

There are so many dehumidifiers in the market. So before you decide to buy a dehumidifier, there are two basic aspects that you must consider- Efficiency and Convenience

Now, what are the features that make a dehumidifier efficient and convenient at the same time? For that matter, what are the things you must consider before you purchase a dehumidifier?

Well, let’s find out.

 Extraction Rate:

So what is the perfect extraction rate?

Well, there is no fixed number that can be considered as the “ideal extraction rate.” It depends on the size of the room or the house. Dehumidifiers that have a higher extraction rate, can cover more space.

Let’s just give you an idea so that you can choose the ideal extraction rate of the dehumidifier that you are about to buy.

If the humidity level of your home is around 50%-60%, then it’s slightly damp. You can buy a dehumidifier if you want. We recommend you to buy one. But it’s not absolutely necessary. If it’s above 60% and between 60-70%, then you should buy one, because it’s moderately damp and you will have that musty smell in your house. You don’t want that. If the humidity level is around 70-80%, then it’s extremely damp and you’ll see wet spots on the floor or wall. Lastly, if it’s somewhere between 80-100%, then it’s wet and you’ll see mould like never before.

Lightweight

It’s always better to buy a lightweight dehumidifier that is easy to move around. It will make sure that you can take it from room to room anytime. But if you want to extract more moisture, then you’ll have to buy bigger dehumidifiers. In that case, you are forced to buy a product that is a bit heavy. if that’s the case, then make sure that it has castor wheels along with a carry handle to make things easier.

Control Panel:

Now, this is extremely important. The control panel of a dehumidifier should be convenient. In fact, it has to be convenient. The latest trend is to go for smart technology because it makes sure that operating the product is easier. Smart technology is extremely efficient at detecting the moisture level and it adapts to your room environment. On the flip side, it can be a bit expensive. But if you are not comfortable with the smart technology, then buy the one that has a rotary panel. Choose the one that suits you. Pick the one which is convenient for you only.

Good Brand:

It’s a  no brainer. Whether you are buying a dehumidifier or something else, It’s always better to buy products that are manufactured by a reputed company. Good companies that have a good track record, will always produce good products. It’s a fact. They value their reputation and they want to make sure that the customers are happy.

Good companies usually provide a warranty which makes sure that you are getting the right product. If anything happens to your product, they will take it back and give you a new one or fix it for free. The customer service they provide is also pretty good.

Companies like Ebac, Pro Breeze, PureMate, Meaco, EcoAir have a solid track record and that’s why products from these brands are on our list. You don’t have to take our word for it. There are plenty of reviews online, and you’ll constantly hear about these brands.

Customer Reviews:

This is another aspect that you may want to consider before buying a dehumidifier. We live in the age of the internet. In the era of the internet, you can get any kind of information within seconds. Plus, because of the internet, people are prone to online shopping. They visit different websites(aka online shops), like something and buy it instantly. If they like it, they will probably give positive reviews. On the contrary, they won’t say nice things if they don’t like the product

Now, here is the thing about online reviews and this is an issue that a lot of customers have faced over the years. You will come across paid reviews that can have an impact on your decision. Fortunately, people are smart these days. More often than not, they tend to recognize fake reviews.

Air Purification System:

When a dehumidifier extracts moisture, it sucks the air inside. But the air is full of dust particles. The dehumidifier should have a good filter to catch the dust or pollen. Most dehumidifiers have a filter. The carbon filtration system is the best. it purifies the air and creates a healthy environment. If someone in your family is dealing with respiratory issues, then it will be a wise choice to buy a dehumidifier that has an air purification system. You may have to clean the filter from time to time, but washing it is quite easy.

Energy Saving Technology:

You want to buy a dehumidifier that consumes less energy. If it consumes less energy, then it will save you some cash. Even if it’s a bit pricey, you should go for it because it will eventually save you money.

Large size water tank:

Try to buy a tank that is bigger and features the auto-shutdown system. The size of the tank is pretty significant. But it’s not that important. If the size of the tank is small, then it means someone will need to empty the tank more. It’s not really a big deal(at least from our perspective.)

But the most important feature that a dehumidifier must have is the auto shutdown system. Basically, it means that the tank will shut down automatically when it is full. Now, it’s a must-have feature because you don’t want your tank to spill water all over the floor.

Continuous drain facility:

Most good dehumidifiers offer a drainage hose so that you can attach it to a drainage port. If you don’t want to empty the water tank over and over again, then this is the solution. It just makes your job easier. On the flip side, it has to remain stationary which means you can’t move it around. The collected water will flow out through the hose into a sink. Some of the dehumidifiers may not come with a hose. So picking a dehumidifier that offers a hose is a smart choice.

Timer:

It’s quite a  handy feature. Basically, it allows you to set the unit to turn on and/or off after a fixed period of time. It makes your job a lot easier.

Noise level: 

Refrigerant dehumidifiers are bound to produce a bit of noise. But good dehumidifiers make sure that the noise level is minimal. Having said that, If you use the dehumidifier in your bed while sleeping, it may cause a problem. In that case, it won’t be a bad idea to use a desiccant dehumidifier.

Usually, desiccant dehumidifiers produce less noise. If you don’t like the sound of a typical refrigerant dehumidifier, then we recommend that you buy a desiccant dehumidifier. But there is an issue with these dehumidifiers. While it’s true that they are quiet and lightweight, they consume a lot of energy which can be a problem. Not the best option if you want to save money and energy.

So these are the things that you should consider before buying a dehumidifier. It is unlikely that you will find all of these features in a single dehumidifier. It’s not fair to even expect that. At the end of the day, no product is perfect. But pick one that offers most of these features.

Furthermore, be smart about your choice. For example, if you don’t need to relocate the dehumidifier constantly, then don’t be bothered about the weight of the product. Just make sure that it has better functionality.

Final Verdict

We are done with our review and buying guide. We did our level best to make sure that our hand-picked appliances are affordable. But the thing is that it’s extremely difficult to do something like that. At the end of the day, good dehumidifiers will require you to spend extra cash.

Having said that, we made sure that most of our products have the “energy-saving” feature and rest assured that all of our dehumidifiers are worth buying. Even if you find them a bit expensive, they will eventually save you money. In the end, we strongly feel that our hand-picked products are some of the best dehumidifiers in the UK.
