From the manufacturer
EcoAir DD3 Classic Desiccant Dehumidifier
DD3 Classic is a desiccant dehumidifier designed for domestic and office. It protects your home and office by controlling your indoor humidity to help control bacteria from thriving. High humidity in the air causes bacteria to breed resulting in mould and mildew which aggravate breathing difficulties and allergies. The DD3 Classic extracts up to 10 L/day (1 degree Celsius, 60 per cent RH) very efficiently. The purpose of a dehumidifier is to remove the excess moisture in the air by detecting the humidity level in the room. By keeping humidity within recommended levels, a dehumidifier combats household damp, mould and mildew. It can help to reduce the symptoms of asthma and allergies. It helps to dry laundry indoors and control moisture-based damage to valuable belongings and furniture (such as the aftermath of flooding, leaks or rising damp).
DD3 Classic Features
The DD3 Classic has an electronic control panel offering three settings - Auto, Economy and High. Select Auto or Economy mode to control humidity to a comfortable level where bacteria cannot thrive for everyday use (less than 60 per cent) and High only for rapid dehumidification to quickly bring down damp problems rather than everyday use. There are two Laundry settings TURBO and NORMAL for drying laundry. Timer arrangements (2, 4 and 8 Hour Timer), four Automatic Louvre Swing options. The DD3 Classic is equipped with the Tilt over safety protection where it will power off when the unit tilts over to avoid hazard. It also has an Auto-Restart function, which enables the dehumidifier to switch back on in case of power cut during operation. It will switch back on to the setting it was last in use before the power cut.
E7 Energy Saver Technology
The DD3 Classic features the E7 Technology using multiple algorithms that operate in parallel to manage power, temperature and humidity to optimise performance. It senses the ambient temperature, humidity level and automatically toggles between full power, economy power and standby modes. The advantages are:
(1) Reduces energy consumption.
(2) Overdry Protection – when humidity is too low, it can cause dry skin, discomfort and damage to property and furniture.
(3) Continuous Auto Sensor and Fan – continuously keep air circulating and level of humidity level throughout the room to minimise unnecessary power consumption. The DD3 runs at 400 W per hour on economy mode, very energy efficient. Unlike a compressor dehumidifier that runs at a single mode, the DD3 has additional High and Turbo Modes that allows you to double that extraction rate to reduce the time required to bring the humidity to a safe level. This Turbo power only consumes 700 W (an extra 340 W for double power). It is recommended that you position the dehumidifier in the room with the highest humidity level to control the humidity. You will have to empty the tank regularly in the first few days and once the humidity is controlled there will be less water to empty just switch the dry mode to Auto or Economy setting. With the E7 Energy Saver Technology, you will be sure that the power consumption is well under control.
Desiccant Versus Compressor
Desiccant dehumidifier does not use a compressor nor gas refrigerant. Without a compressor, the DD3 Classic is quieter and lighter. The desiccant dehumidifier is extremely energy efficient in colder climates (from 1 degree Celsius). The DD3 Classic has a constant efficiency in extracting moisture between 1 degree Celsius to 40 degree Celsius which is not the case with a compressor dehumidifier. The DD3 Classic uses a desiccant rotor technology that has been proven to be more energy efficient than the refrigerant type in industrial dehumidification for decades. The air expelled from the DD3 Classic is warmer than the ambient air, this air is warm dry air which is much quicker to heat up or cool, this in turn results in energy saving when you need to heat or cool the room to a desired temperature level. Desiccant dehumidifiers will emit a desiccant smell during the initial use, this is normal and harmless and it should go away after a week or two.
The warmer the air, the more moisture the air can hold than colder air. So, when the air inside the house becomes colder, the moisture contents in the air becomes saturated and gets heavier resulting in moisture concentration on the coldest parts of the house particularly on windows, bathroom mirrors and walls. This is condensation, caused by a sudden increase in humidity through cooking, showers, drying clothes, inadequate ventilation or poor thermal insulation. Condensation may not disappear instantly even with a dehumidifier on, you can help speed up by channelling the air from the dehumidifier directly towards the condensation area. Where excessive condensation appears say on your windows, you may want to open your windows to expel the excess humidity for several minutes. It will take a while for the condensation to generally increase the humidity in the air in the room, which will be tackled by the dehumidifier depending on the setting you choose.
Easy Carry Handle
Portability is an important consideration when purchasing a dehumidifier. You may want to move the dehumidifier from room to room. Whilst the the DD3 Classic lightweight at 7.8 kg, it is equipped with a collapsible carry handle to make portability more manageable.
Continuous Hose (Optional)
You may wish to run your DD3 with a hose attached so that there is no need to empty the water tank. A 1 M hose is provided with your DD3 Classic. You need to remove the rubber plug at the back of the dehumidifier and pass the hose through from the back to the front and connect to the water tank. This will enable the water to drip through the hose to a drain or sink. Do keep the rubber plug in a safe place in case you need to use the water tank in future as you will need to put the rubber plug back on.
Tank With Lid and Carry Handle
The DD3 Classic has a 3.5 L tank. The tank is positioned at the bottom front of the dehumidifier like a drawer. This is designed as such so that there is no need to move the dehumidifier when removing the tank to empty. There is a lid covering the tank to avoid spillage and a carry handle for ease of carrying. To empty the tank, remove the lid as you would do with a food container and once tank is emptied, replace the lid with the carry handle positioned through the hole and folded down before inserting into the dehumidifier.

DON'T turn them on and off with a time-switch, you have to turn them off with the off button which allows the heater element to cool down before the fan cuts out. If you repeatedly cut the power at the socket, the heater element will burn out. Extracts about 25L of water a week in my garage. Built in humidistat allows it to cut on and off as required, mostly with the fan running on low when `off` to circulate the air.
Have tried many others, including refrigerant types, and this knocks the socks off them all, even a £4k swimming pool one I tried once.
Buy this one !

Photo shows it draining into a 50L plastic tub (which *is* nearly full), have to empty about every fortnight.
My daughter is having a large extension built to her house, and I will pass the otherwise useless DD322 Classic on to her to help dry the place out once they move back in.
Unit is not heavy - I find it rather quiet - some complain of noise but its a low hum and I use in the spare room for speeding up the laundry drying process during cold/wet winter months.
For that its excellent - I can hear it in the same room but not next door or downstairs (we do have fitted carpet) I wouldn't even know it was on.
I like it has 2 laundry settings and also timer. usually a 2 hour run on turbo will almost dry the rack if not another 2 hour cycle usually does it.
It has taken a lot of moisture out with a load of laundry and the water tank thankfully has a lid so when you are carrying it up/downstairs to empty it will NOT slosh all over the place if full. The tank even has a useful handle when you take it out. That was a concern the last thing you need is to spill it and have to dry the carpet out so it is designed very well for that.
All in all pleased with purchased - made sure I read reviews and also the which guide which recommended it
Its still new and working well so have no negatives yet and had this a couple weeks. Mostly used for laundry but the spare room we often leave a window open now and then to air it and it was feeling damp but no longer.
It's got 3 standard settings, high/low/auto, with auto being recommended by Ecoair as it switches between the high and low settings to get to 55%RH as efficiently as possible. Once it hits the required relative humidity level it switches into low power recirculation mode (30W) until the RH rises again.
It also has 2 setting for drying clothes, these just keep drying the air (at high or low power levels) until the unit is switched off, or the timer shuts it down. As I tend to run this for 8 hours overnight on auto anyway, I find this is just as effective at drying a load of washing.
The timer allows for 2, 4 or 8 hour operation if you don't want to leave it on permanently. All settings are accessed by a fairly intuitive button setup on the top of the unit.
The unit is easy to empty, just pull out the reservoir from the bottom of the unit, unclip the lid and pour. I would recommend doing this before it gets too full, as there isn't much of a seal around the lid.
It's also possible to attach the supplied hose to the back of the reservoir and connect it to a permanent drain...unfortunately I've not had had much success with this, the hose keeps slipping off, leading to a sightly soggy bench when I tried it, so I'd recommend either keeping an eye on it or finding some way to better secure the hose if using this option.
When I have the windows closed, this will easily condense well over 1 litre of water in an 8 hour period, so my house is now happily condensation free!
