Bought this unit a few weeks back and now we empty about 4 - 5 litres of water out of it PER DAY, which would otherwise remain in the room. Tremendous performance and quiet too. Don't know how much the electricity costs to run it but it's got to be less than a tumble drier running all day, or the cost of redecorating the room and replacing mouldy curtains and carpets every couple of years.
I'd definately recommend the unit to anyone but beware, Amazon will charge you £5.01 for delivery.
Initially, I was quite impressed with the size of the unit, however I was even more impressed with how quietly the unit operates even on max humidity power. The set up is fairly straightforward to do (had it running in minutes once the safety tabs were removed and the carbon filter fitted), the instructions are not entirely friendly as they dont describe the functions very well, nor does it even explain about humidity levels? Strange, however maybe the manufacturer is presuming we all know this in advance. That aside, its been great.
My car garage has a leaking roof which has been causing my old Mk1 MR2 some condensation issues (i.e. feeding the dreaded rust spots LOL!). I put on the Ruby Dry and within a day was full. Thankfully, it has an auto cut off so its well contained.
The air returned after being put through the machine was noticeably warmer, but its a very cold garage so I'd imagine in a home or warmer environment it would indeed add a few degrees to the temperature.
As I've said, easy to use (even with the instructions), very quiet and comes in a good size which is easy to move about.
I tried one which didn't use a compressor, but it was a waste of money as it only picked up about a litre a month. The other type I tried had a compressor, and although it did initially work quite well, it was really noisy and kept icing up even after being repaired.
The DH600 is far superior; it's quiet, has plenty of settings and works well. It does get warm on the highest setting, so I've had to turn it down on hot days. I've only had it a few weeks now but it gathers about 4 litres a day in my 3 bedroom house which is the best out of all the dehumidifiers I've tried. I only wish I had bought a silica gel disc based dehumidifier the first time around.
Although it may not solve your problem completely (in my case it's like treating the symptoms not the root cause - it's a building which has its ventilation shaft painted so it doesn't "breath") this is amazing device if you air your laundry in your room. It used to take several days for some of the clothes to dry, now it takes just a few hours. Of course all this comes at some expense - the appliance consumes 435W and electricity is quite pricey in Britain.
Overall - very useful - I would have bought it just for the laundry drying help I am getting without having the humidity problem. Giving it 4 stars only because I think that a timer to turn off after some time would be quite useful. Otherwise it has humidistat with 3 preset settings: 40,50,60% humidity. Sometimes however I just want to run it for a few hours while I am out. As for quietness: the only option I can sleep with it on is the manual one set to LOW. With all the others there is quite some noise so I just close the door!
Con's:No carry handle on water container (but does have a grab recess at the front and rear of tank) 5.5 litres is heavy to lift from floor level,desiccant smell,too frequent filter washing required.Mains lead fixed to the absolute rear of the unit.
We've been using one of these for three months (03/2013+) using the varying settings available. It certainly extracts a large amount of water in a short space of time and the heated expelled air is a bonus over the compressor type machines. It has a few design flaws or omissions (no fold down handle on the water container, no cushioned feet on the base of the unit,frequent requirement to wash filter-not difficult but irksome to remember.
However, it's biggest Achiles heel like all machines of this type, is the smell from the air oulet.After 3 months use the desiccant zeolite is still smelling somewhat, esp if used on the highest fan setting.It doesn't affect in permeating clothing etc but nonetheless it is not a positive feature.
I have yet to see any retailer of any desiccant machine mention the smell in any of the sales blurb. I wonder why that could be?
It's best not placed in the room you are generally occupying, but in a hallway or landing area, to collect moisture from the whole house. The expelled dry and heated air is significant.Read more ›
