Written by Alex under Air Purifiers, Dehumidifiers, General | No Comments ""

Because of the health benefits and the changes we’ve seen in the climate over the past few years, ( do you remember the last time summer or winter wasn’t the hottest, wettest, driest, or windiest since records began?) many people are finding it necessary to invest in additional heaters for the winter and coolers such […]

Guide to Choosing a Dehumidifier

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifiers, Desiccant, General | 2 Comments ""

One of the most important  factors to bear in mind when choosing a dehumidifier  is the need to match the water extraction capacity of the unit with the requirements of the place where it is going to be installed. Obviously, larger rooms require dehumidifiers that are capable of removing large quantities of water efficiently in […]

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifiers, General, Humidifiers, Weather Station Reviews | 1 Comment ""

Cold and flu season has arrived and it’s been well established that running a humidifier in your home can help relieve congestion and soothe a sore throat.  A humidifier can be particularly beneficial for children with colds and snuffles as their smaller nostrils get stuffed up more easily. Indeed, one of the first things most […]

Tenants: Do You Have the Right to Request a Dehumidifier to Combat Mold?

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifiers, General | No Comments ""

The UK is a funny old place, certainly in the view of many Europeans for whom the idea of getting a mortgage (literally meaning “Dead Hand”) seems ridiculous.  In their view a home is a place to live, not an investment.  The British economy has always been driven by the housing market’s ups and downs, […]

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifiers, General, Humidifiers | No Comments ""

The ability to control electricity with your mind may seem the stuff of science fiction, but Debbie Wolf, who hails from Telscombe Cliffs, near Brighton, says she is one of Britain’s growing number of “SLIders” – people who believe their presence interferes with household appliances, radios and light bulbs.

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifier Reviews | No Comments ""

I have two of the stylish wall mounted dehumidifiers one used for clothes drying in the UK and the other at our villa in Spain to stop dampness through the winter months and this unit works really well for both applications. I use both with the auto drain option and I was very impressed how […]

Review of Secco Dehumidifier by Rik Prowen

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifier Reviews | No Comments ""

I think the Secco 12 litre dehumidifier is excellent in my utility room where I use it for drying laundry. It’s quiet for a refrigerant dehumidifier, its low profile means it can sit on the worktop under a wall unit whereas others are too tall to fit in that space, the fan is powerful so circulates air […]

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifier Reviews | 1 Comment ""

I’ve got a Boneco 18l dehumidifier in our laundry room. With two young kids we need to dry at least one load of washing each day. The room is small, so the compact size of this unit is ideal. It’s very quiet and will fully dry a load of washing overnight.

Review of Ruby Dry Dehumidifier by Duncan Buxton

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifier Reviews | No Comments ""

I’ve been running a Ruby Dry dehumidifier in the same room as a supposedly larger capacity “20 litre per day” dehum and the Ruby wins hands down. Even the though Ruby is supposed to only take out 6 litres per day it’s always got more water in its tank than the other one when they’ve […]

Desiccant or compressor driven dehumidifier?

Written by Duncan under Dehumidifiers | 5 Comments ""

The two main types of dehumidifiers for the home and light commercial area incorporate either desiccant or compressor technology to remove moisture from an atmosphere. A desiccant dehumidifier contains a material that absorbs the moisture directly from the air and then releases it into a tank when it is warmed. A compressor driven dehumidifier is the more […]
