Description

This model boasts some handy additional settings including a timer, SMART mode and dryer setting for an extra boost on laundry day. It also features a continuous extraction mode for maximum extraction rate, a water full indicator and a 600mm hose for continuous drainage. As with all dehumidifiers, the most common maintenance you'll need to do is emptying the water tank. The beeping noise that sounds when the dehumidifier is ready to be emptied is very loud. I can hear the two sharp beeps from all over my flat. I actually found this a very handy feature when I was relying on the smart mode function. Energy use This 20L dehumidifier is suitable for a room size up to 50m2- perfect for larger rooms such as an open plan living area or garage. It features an easy to empty 3 litre water tank and has a maximum extraction rate of up to 20 litres per day.

I began testing the Russell Hobbs RHDH2002 20L dehumidifier by using the Continuous mode after I'd been in the shower to help clear the excess humidity in my flat. As the dehumidifier requires connection to mains electricity it obviously isn't safe to use in the bathroom itself, however, I positioned it in the small room facing the bathroom so it was safely away from any splash risks. Although the Russell Hobbs RHDH2002 20L dehumidifier is one of the most affordable large dehumidifiers we've come across and is cheaper upfront than the comparable 20L Meaco Arete One dehumidifier. The Russell Hobbs RHDH2002 uses a lot of energy in comparison, so running costs are higher. However, just like the MeacoDry Arete One, as well as an impressive extraction rate the Russell Hobbs RHDH2002 20L dehumidifier has some great features, including an easy-to-read LED screen that displays current humidity levels and a useful Smart mode that monitors the humidity levels for you, turning the dehumidifier on and off as soon as it rises above the recommended home humidity range between 45%~55% for more economical (and hassle-free) use. There's also auto-shut off functionality when the water tank is full. The Russell Hobbs RHDH2002 20L dehumidifier uses 440W of energy compared to Meaco's 20L Arete One which uses 216W on average. At current energy prices, that means the Russell Hobbs model costs roughly 13p per hour to run, compared to the Meaco Arete One's average 6p per hour running cost. Portability The Russell Hobbs dehumidifier has four wheels on the bottom so is incredibly easy to move around the home. I could easily roll it around between my bedroom, the spare room where we dry the laundry.This product comes with a free one year manufacturer guarantee.

This function meant that I didn't have to worry about leaving the dehumidifier on all the time, and it was only in use when it needed to be. This dehumidifier doesn't have a remote or any clever Apps to control it, everything is done via the LED display and electronic control panel on the top of the dehumidifier, which I found kept things nice and simple. To put it to the true test I tried sleeping with it on in my bedroom. I'm quite a light sleeper, so although during the day I didn't find the hum that irritating, I did struggle to get to sleep with it and ended up switching it off.

During the winter I tested out the Continuous mode on the highest fan level in the kitchen to dry out a wall where we'd had a leak. In just 24 hours the watermark had shrunk significantly despite the cold weather outside. The Russell Hobbs 20L Dehumidifier is the ideal tool for drying laundry, reducing humidity and minimising the physical signs of damp and condensation. This 20L dehumidifier is suitable for a room size up to 50m2- perfect for larger rooms such as an open plan living area or garage. It features an easy to empty 3 litre water tank and has a maximum extraction rate of up to 20 litres per day. This model boasts some handy additional settings including a timer, SMART mode and dryer setting for an extra boost on laundry day. It also features a continuous extraction mode for maximum extraction rate, a water full indicator and a 600mm hose for continuous drainage. This product comes with a free one year manufacturer guarantee. A free second year guarantee is available upon registering your product. That said, overall, the Smart function did work well and helped us minimise the dampness and mould returning to our flat over the winter.It also cut down on how frequently I needed to empty the tank, usually taking around two days to fill up completely. PRODUCT FEATURES: Timer, dryer & SMART modes, LED display, electronic controls, continuous drain function and auto defrost The reservoir on the front of the dehumidifier features a small window which is supposed to help you gauge how full it is, but I struggled to see through it. However, the dehumidifier sounds a loud alarm when the tank is full and automatically shuts off.

To add to the portability it is also relatively light and easy to lift, with two hand groves on either side so I was able to easily carry it up and down stairs on my own. Maintenance However, whilst this Russell Hobbs number is cheaper upfront, running costs are higher, with the 20L dehumidifier using 440W of energy compared to Meaco's 20L Arete One which uses 216W on average. Plus, the Arete One offers a built-in air purifier which this model does not, and the Russell Hobbs RHDH2002 20L dehumidifier's water tank is smaller at 3L compared to the Meaco's 4.8L, which means it needs emptying more often. In terms of noise, the Russell Hobbs version is louder than many other top-rated dehumidifiers at 47.5dB. The biggest issue with the water tank came when emptying it, the reservoir would full right to the very top so it often spilt over when I slid it out to empy it. There is a cleverly hidden carry handle built into the reservoir but it didn't help overcome the spilling issue. I found the dehumidifier was pleasantly quiet compared to cheaper version I've used in the past. However, it does give off a low-level hum which I could hear down the corridor.
