Dimplex DXDH10N Forte dehumidifier review

Dimplex DXDH10N buttonPros: Low price and good performance. Nice design. Simple to use

Cons: Noise and portability could be an issue for some people

Would we buy? If you are looking for a no-nonsense lower priced unit then you cannot go wrong with this model. Currently, our best budget buy

Dimplex has a range of dehumidifiers under the “Forte” brand. All 3 models available are the same design but have different extraction levels. The model that makes it into our Top 10 list is the DXDH10N, which is the entry-level model. read more

DeLonghi DES12 dehumidifier review

DeLonghi DES12 buttonPros: Solid performance with a 2 year warranty. Low energy consumption.

Cons: Lacking in features compared to the competition at this price

Would we buy? A good performer but in our opinion beaten by the feature-packed and modern Ecoair DD122FW MK5 Classic

The DeLonghi DES12 has a £180 RRP which places it at the top end, in terms of price, of the dehumidifiers we reviewed. The DeLonghi has a similar RRP to the Ecoair DD122FW MK5 Classic (£170) so it is interesting to see how these two models compare. read more

Ecoair DD122FW MK5 Classic dehumidifier review

EcoAir DD122FW MK5 ClassicPros: Good mid-priced dehumidifier with good performance and excellent features. Timer function. 2 year warranty

Cons: No major negative areas but just watch using “high” modes for long periods (to avoid big electricity bills)

Would we buy? Yes! This is a well priced, high performing unit but its the list of features that make this unit stand out. Currently our “best buy” read more

Ecoair DD322FW Simple dehumidifier review

Ecoair DD322FW Simple buttonPros: High performing unit. Has all the features you would need. 2 year warranty

Cons: Expensive. Portability may be an issue for some

Would we buy? This is one of the most expensive dehumidifiers reviewed but has all the features and performance you would expect at this price. If you intend to use in a larger room or need the extra features then this should be on your “to buy” list read more

Prem-i-Air EH1220 dehumidifier review

Prem-i-air EH1220 dehumidifierPros: Good performance for price

Cons: Lacking in features. No humidistat. Small water tank. Noise

Would we buy? This is a fairly simple but good performing unit. It’s one one of the lowest priced units tested but in our view the Dimplex DXDH10N Forte is the better budget buy

UK-based Prem-i-Air have a large range of both domestic and commercial dehumidifiers but only one makes it into our Top 10 dehumidifier list, the EH1220 12L Compressor Dehumidifier. read more
