Q & As

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does exactly what it says on the tin... This is an excellent product. I can't agree with the other reviews that say it is noisy, as it's no louder than a fan on full or a fridge running. I only have it on for about six hours a day & it's pulling out about 2 litres of water every couple of days. I'm really pleased with the product & it has exceeded my expectations. Also, it warms the room up. 03 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It really works! We bought a small bungalow that has been packed to the brim with cavity wall insulation, had all the air bricks and ventilation filled in etc and modern double glazing installed. The result is a condensation nightmare! On cold mornings we used to wake up to condensation dripping down the inside of our that we have our dehumidifier everything remains dry. This dehumidifier has completely solved our condensation issue. We only leave it running in our louge over night and keep all doors open to allow circulation through the house, and in the space of about 7 hours it can easily take 1-1.5 litres of water out of the air when left on its max setting. When we first bought the dehumidifier it measured the humidity of the house at around the 75% mark, which is considered to be an unhealthy level! It took the dehumidifier perhaps a day or two of continuous use to bring the background levels down to around 50% which is a healthy level. Now, with just nightly use the background humidity stays level at around 50%. Well worth the money. I would buy one again. It would score 5 stars if it were a little more quiet, I would not be able to have the dehumidifier in my bedroom, nor could you comfortably hear a TV over it if you kept it in the lounge etc. However left in the lounge over night gives us no issues with noise. 27 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Noisy and ineffective This machine is noisy and ineffective (compared to a desiccant dehumidifier). I recommend purchasing the Meaco DD8L dehumidifier instead. 30 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very goog product Very easy to use and move. Reasonable quiet even I keep it on during night. 04 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by An efficient machine! The De'Longhi DES16E is compact, slim and really does the job! 26 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works as described Took delivery after a long wait for new stock. As other reviews state, it will aid in drying clothes placed on an airer. I put mine in a small room, close the door and have the DES16E on the highest setting. I don't think it is overly noisy - it needs to make some noise if you think about what it is doing. The instructions warn about using it within 1 hour of moving, so take care there and it can leak a little water if moved. Transporting and emptying the tank is easy. Overall, very pleased 27 February 2014
