Reg Consumer Advice

Anyone ever used a dehumidifier for the home?  If so, advice please, price, mae/type, size etc.

Bloody expensive aren't they?

Hiya Codge. I've used them before. Hired mine from a plant hire place behind The Headingley Taps. Wherever you phone up to get one, tell them what exactly you need it for and they will tell you approx how long you would need to hire it for. They are pretty heavy (but one man can lift them, and most have wheels). Some places would probably deliver it for you. I had to pick mine up me sen. The dehumidifier needs to be raised off the ground a little bit in order for the water pipe to drain the collected moisture into a bucket. Try and get a few bricks or summat to place it on. Whichever area in a house you have it in, make sure windows and doors are shut because it then captures more moisture from where you want it to capture it from, rather than just steam from the bathroom etc. Yes, there are a bit dear (and fucking noisy n' all) but worth it. We'd have ours on all day then switch it off when we went to beddy-byes. That is all.

Cheers, sounds expensive though?

Depends how much you need the moisture getting rid of I suppose. With anything I tend to get three quotes. Just ring a few places.

I've got a smallish one (cost maybe GBP200?) that permanently is on in the basement that drains into a sump which I then pump up and out into the garden (great for lillies!).

Noisy fecker, but effective in the humidity of the summer and to dry the basement out after flooding (usually March/April, when the snow/ice finally melts).

To show how "twenty-first" century we are here - the poo poo man just came to pump the "solids" holding tank (1,000 gallon tank - has to be done every couple of years).

I live in the backside of Beyonce, me.

FFS Grinder. It's like being on a forum with Ned Flanders! Do you have at least one of every tool known to mankind? I'd love a look around your garage. Sounds ace!

It has to be said, the garage is better than the house.

At the moment I'm quite keen on getting a petrol-powered hydraulic log splitter, but the missus is having none of it.

She, apparently, has a bit of an axe to Grind.

What do you need it for Codge?

Girlfriend wants to reduce the condensation on the windows, plus she seems very sensitive to dust etc even though officially just allergic to cat hair, and there are no moggies in the hoose.

Tell her to stop breathing.

Constructive.

It would probably work  though.

Are you stupid, as if she'd bloomin' listen or take orders from me!?

Good point.

Forget about the dehumidifier. Get a cat.
Grind

You might want to consider getting one of those ionising thingummies - they help remove dust, dander and smaller electrostatically-charged birds from the atmosphere.

A cat would also work well for the small birds.

They're great for dander too.

If you want any, like.

* Gets coat. *

** Sneezes. **

* Wipes snot off of window. *

You do know that you don't get these sort of problems with a Mac?

Ioniser already on the list, ta.

My wife swears by it.

You really need to find the cause and not try to treat the symptoms. A dehumidifier will be costly over the long term.

Knock the windows out - you won't even need (her) to clean them then.
