We were the first company to specialise in domestic desiccant dehumidifiers back in 2007 and we are happy to share all of this experience with you to make sure you select the right desiccant dehumidifier for your application.
Our DD8L range includes two Which? Best Buys and the current Best on Test winner from Practical Boat Owner. All our desiccant dehumidifiers come with a two-year warranty as standard, and our helpful customer services team is always here to answer any questions you might have.
Our desiccant dehumidifiers are ideal for garages, boats, caravans, workshops, basements, classic car storage, conservatories, utilities and any other unheated space where it would not be appropriate to use a compressor dehumidifier. Desiccant dehumidifiers are always best for use in spaces where the temperature is likely to drop below 10°C for any extended period of time.
We would recommend our DD8L Junior for basic applications where you are not spending any extended period of time in the space, for example, garages, boats and caravans. For applications where you are in the space, then the DD8L offers an anti-bacterial filter and an ioniser to help clean the air, as well as dehumidify. Whilst for those who want it all, the DD8L Zambezi is our top of the range desiccant dehumidifier with 6 world firsts and a range of control options.
For the type of applications that a desiccant dehumidifier is often used for, customers often ask about using a plug in timer to control the hours per day that the dehumidifier runs for. This is always a bad idea with any dehumidifier because the plug in timer creates a regular power cut that damages the internals of the machine, but the DD8L Zambezi offers a unique solution as it is the only dehumidifier to have a built in daily-run timer.
The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation
The DD8L Zambezi Dehumidifier is named after a young elephant at the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Elephant Orphanage, in Zambia, which cares for elephants whose mothers have been killed by poachers. Zambezi was discovered in the swimming pool from a local hotel, having fallen in trying to drink. After rescuing Zambezi, staff from the orphanage and hotel took him back to the orphanage. Zambezi has now been weaned and has been moved to a release facility in Kafue National Park along with another elephant, Musolole, which takes him a step closer to living free in the wild.
For every sale of a DD8L Zambezi, we will donate £2 to the DSWF to support their vital conservation work.
The reason why this question comes up is because compressor dehumidifiers extract less water as the temperature and/or relative falls and costs more money per litre of water as the conditions fall. Desiccant dehumidifiers on the other hand are pretty much consistent and their performance does not change much..
With a particularly wet Autumn underway the UK dehumidifier season has arrived early this year. Cold and damp appears to be settling in sooner than expected, so this could well be the right time to consider buying a dehumidifier. There are two types of dehumidifiers: desiccant and compressor.
