One question that is often asked online is ‘what is the cheapest dehumidifier?’ Obviously this question is phrased incorrectly as each dehumidifier has a different purpose. For example a dehumidifier suitable for a single room would be totally inefficient when bought as a dehumidifier for use in a 3 bed semi-detached property!
At the time of writing there is a great dehumidifier sale on Amazon with discounts of up to 58%!!
Normally I’d whole-heartedly recommend desiccant type dehumidifiers as they are much more efficient than compressor dehumidifiers in UK weather. However for those looking for the cheapest dehumidifier for a property, whether owned or rented, then I’d probably have to recommend a compressor model.
Note that with dehumidifiers, like most things in life, you get what you pay for. The cheapest may not neccessarily be the best. In fact I personally bought a top of the range domestic dehumidifier in the Meaco DD8L desiccant dehumidifier and I haven’t looked back. It’s nice and quiet, it’s light. In fact I have it operating in the hallway on the second fan setting at the 55% relative humidity level and I can’t hear it operating!
However ignoring the current price discounts I can think of several compressor dehumidifiers of around £100 which could be good candidates for the cheapest domestic dehumidifier. However having looked at these models previously I can immediately pick out the one that is the best for the price…….
The Prem-I-Air ‘Xtreem 10’ dehumidifier is a true workhorse and well worth the price (check latest price here). Featuring a 10 litre extraction rate, 1.5 litre water container with a continuous drainage option the ‘Xtreem10’ is like a more expensive dehumidifier with some lower cost options. The control panel is electronic and features a digital humidity display.
Compressor dehumidifiers are always a bit louder than desiccant models and in the case of the ‘Xtreem 10’ output is around 45dBA which is around 10dBA more than the best desiccant dehumidifier models on the market. 45dBA lies between the sound level of an ordinary library and a conversation. Therefore for daytime use such a volume probably isn’t too loud. However 45dBA would be too loud for many people when using the dehumidifier in their bedroom at night.

The next model home dehumidifiers that I would recommend would be in the next price bracket of £120-£130 however for those looking for the cheapest home dehumidifier the ‘Xtreem 10’ will do the trick.
