Humidity is present in every house, but when it reaches a certain degree (e.g. over 70%) it is considered to be in excess, and thus it needs to be eliminated. Failure to get rid of extra humidity may lead to allergies problem, plants’ premature death or even more severe breathing disorders, such as asthma or ARDS. Fortunately, there are plenty of products on the market which can help you in this regard. Next, we’re going to have a look at one of the most affordable, yet efficient dehumidifiers on the market: Ecoair ECO DD122FW Desiccant Simple Dehumidifier.
- Compact and Lightweight Design
The device benefits from a space-saving design and can be easily carried all around the house using the included handle. Moreover, the humidifier is made to cover a large area and can be set just about wherever you like.
- Silver Ionic Filter
This dehumidifier comes complete with a state-of-the-art purification filter, which eliminates up to 99% of the bacteria found in air. Such a feature eliminates the risk of allergies or breathing disorders which are commonly caused by dust, microns and allergens. The filter works for as long as the device is turned on.
- Easy to Use
As you might have guessed from its name, the Ecoair ECO DD122FW Simple Dehumidifier is indeed easy to use. It takes only a few dials spins to set the mould, condensation and bacteria growth prevention to the desired level. Moreover, the Rotary humidistat ensures that everything is running smooth and with minimal energy consumption from the time you start the device and until you unplug it.
- Ergonomic Case
The device’s case has been designed in such manner as to minimize spillage, enhance handling, allow you to remove the tank by its side and ensure anti-drip functionality due to the embedded lid. Moreover, it includes an adjustable louvre.
- Advanced Safety Features
The safety features of this dehumidifier include tilt protection, the ability to shut down itself when the humidity level is optimal, heat detection and programmable shut-off. It’s also to be noted that the device comes with a 2-year warranty.
- Noise Cancelling Technology and Turbo Mode
At last but not least, it’s to be noted that the device produces only 34 dB when running, being approximate as silent as a modern air conditioning unit. In addition, the Turbo Mode greatly boosts the unit’s power for those times when you need a quick drying of the house.
- Can be somewhat pricey to run
One downside of the Ecoair ECO DD122FW Desiccant Simple is that when compared to other “eco”- labelled units, the energy savings it produces are not great. To get an overall idea, the device consumes about 1/3 of an electricity unit per hour, on the “economy” setting.
