Rated 5 out of 5Â by Narrowboat01 Great Dehumidifier
I have a garage full of logs that need to be seasoned and this is a great way to capture the moisture contained within them. Fills the container overnight. Will now take advantage of the facility to connect a hose pipe to the unit and channel the absorbed water to the street outside.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Samsonite Better than a desiccant type
Previously used a desiccant wheel type, which failed after three years â they use a heater to drive off the moisture from the desiccant. The heater burnt out, and judging by ebay, it is a common problem. It would cost half the original price of the unit to repair, but have only one year guarantee. While the desiccant type has the advantage of operating to very low temperatures, and can be used in cold cellars or garages, mine was being used indoors to reduce condensation and dry washing, but, it used up to 2 kW to do this. The heat produced also confused the central heating thermostat, which is located in the same room, and the rest of the house would go cold.
This 16Ltr compressor dehumidifier only uses 250W. It is quieter than the desiccant type, but a different type of noise. I bought it because the hot water tank started leaking into the ceiling. It is amazing how much water plaster board can soak up. So far it has managed to remove 2 litres in one night set at 50% humidity. This dehumidifier is also better because you can set the required humidity level in 5% steps. The desiccant type is set more coarsely. I will be trying lower humidity levels later. BTW, I did not buy it just to dry out the ceiling, but to continue where the desiccant dehumidifier left off.
