Now is the perfect time of the year to buy a device that removes moisture from our homes, so getting a cheap dehumidifier in the Cyber Monday sales today is a no-brainer.

Dehumidifiers are the easiest way to eradicate excess moisture in the air, so if you have a problem with dampness or condensation in your house, this handy home device is a must-have.

With the cost of living crisis (opens in new tab) and high energy prices making many of us think twice before turning the heating on this year, our homes could become more susceptible to damp. This is because while we can put an extra jumper on to keep warm without putting the heating on, our homes still feel the effects of the cold. This is made worse by wet weather or activities like using the hob or drying clothes indoors, which can increase the amount of moisture in the air. 

Why should you buy a dehumidifier?

Condensation is a real issue at this time of year, and if condensation isn’t dealt with, the excess moisture can lead to bigger problems such as mould and mildew. Buying a dehumidifier can help tackle this issue. 

"Dehumidifiers reduce the level of humidity by sucking in air from the room, removing the moisture, and then blowing the warm, dry air back out into the room again," explains Chris Michael, Managing Director of Meaco (opens in new tab), the UK’s leading air purification specialist. "This can help to remove the ‘damp chill’ factor in the air, so the central heating could run at a lower temperature or even be switched off."

Another reason to buy a humidifier is that they are far more cost efficient to run than the cost of turning your heating on. So if you're putting off making your home cosy and warm for as long as possible this winter, then the dehumidifier will help keep the damp at bay.   

"Dehumidifiers can cost as little as 8p per hour to run*," explains Chris. "Look for dehumidifiers that have a dedicated laundry mode where the machine run up to six hours before switching itself off to save energy.

"Investing in an energy-efficient dehumidifier over other similar products on the market can save homeowners up to £150**."

*A dehumidifier that can extract up to 12 litres a day, with a wattage of 157w (0.157 kWh) would cost just over 8p an hour based on the October 2022 price of 52p per kWh per hour. A dehumidifier that can extract up to 20 litres a day, with a wattage of 480w would use 0.48 kWh, meaning that an hour’s usage would cost just under 25p.

**Research from Meaco in April 2022 after the spring price rate rise found that the Meaco Arete One 20L was £143 a year cheaper to run than its worst-performing competitor, based on six hours of use per day over 365 days.  

Why buy a dehumidifier today in the Cyber Monday sales?

We already know the benefits of buying a dehumidifier, but you could save even more money by purchasing this winter-essential while it's on offer. Dehumidifiers are popular products in the UK this year for the reasons already stated, so they're selling out fast. Snapping one up while it's in stock and on offer in the Cyber Monday sales would be wise, before stock gets any lower and prices return to the usual RRP next month.

Not all dehumidifiers are expensive either, I've just bought this mini design that requires no electricity at all – zero running costs. Because my main damp issue is not having sufficient ventilation in my bathroom ( no fan, just a window to let the steam out) this model is ideal because it doesn't require any electricity.
