If you’re serious about dehumidifying your home, you want to get your hands on a Meaco 25L Ultra Low Energy machine. It’s a bit big – think wheely suitcase crossed with a kitchen bin – but it will change your life. Not only does it use less energy per litre than any other dehumidifier currently on the market, but it can sap enough moisture to dry a five-bed house, or a particularly damp basement, or a rack of freshly laundered clothes. Then, once full, it simply switches off until you’re ready to empty its impressive 25l tank.
Got black spots on your walls? Condensation on the windows? Peeling paint? You need a dehumidifier, mate. These babies will work wonders on a room that’s on the damp side, be it a windowless bathroom, a basement apartment or a full-on five-bed house. You can get them of all shapes and sizes to tackle your moist spots, which not only threaten the structure of your home, but your health too. Respiratory problems, allergic reactions and skin irritations can all be down to the bacteria attracted by high humidity, which we’re particularly prone to in the UK, especially in winter when it’s colder outside than in. A good dehumidifier will get to work immediately in removing excess precipitation and the longer you use it for, the better regulated your air will become. An added bonus is that most come with a laundry function too and double as a low-energy tumble dryer. We’ve looked at a whole load and are confident in saying that we’ve found the ten best dehumidifiers available.
