This is where the real value is. The Aokey 1000ml Dehumidifier offers REMARKABLE value for the price. You are unlikely to find anything with this level of performance for any cheaper than this. It has a massive 450ml/day extraction rate and a decent 1000ml water tank. This dehumidifier has everything it needs to tackle damp issues and may be the budget answer to your problems.
|Extraction Rate -450ml per day||9/10|
|Water Tank Size – 1000ml||9/10|
On top of this, you get a number of bonus features with the Aokey. These include a timer, great for leaving it on and letting it turn itself off when full. We low how portable and stylish this dehumidifier is. It fits into practically any room and will go almost unnoticed as it is so quiet and discreet. If you have serious damp issues however, there are limited options at this price point and we would recommend upping your budget for something like the Meaco ABC range. We have previously made a detailed review of this favourite here.
Best Budget Dehumidifier Under £50 – Pro Breeze 500ml
The Pro Breeze 500ml is one of the most recognizable mini dehumidifiers and a bestseller. The reason it’s a bestseller? – it does what it says on the tin. It is a very consistent small dehumidifier and offers great value. Included are basic features like a 250ml/day extraction rate and a 500ml water tank. It is highly portable and very low maintenance. You just need to empty the water tank, give it an occasional wipe and check the intake isn’t dirty. This model only uses 23 watts of electricity so you will barely notice any increase in your electricity bill.
|Extraction Rate -250ml||6/10|
|Water Tank Size – 500ml||6/10|
We recommend this model for minor damp issues in spaces such as bedrooms. I have personally used a mini dehumidifier in my bedroom because my walls were wet every morning. In a few days the dehumidifier helped me get rid of the problem, they work.
Best Small Dehumidifier Under £50 – Manwe 900ml Dehumidifier
The Manwe 900ml Dehumidifier is one of the most powerful dehumidifiers you can get in this price range. It can remove up to 400ml/day from the air and has a large 900ml water tank. The Flashvin has common features at this price point including automatic shut off. It is also one of the more stylish mini dehumidifiers and will fit nicely into most rooms. It has LED lights that light up the water tank in varying colours. Much like the Pro Breeze 500ml, it is very low maintenance and highly portable.
|Extraction Rate -450ml||7/10|
|Water Tank Size – 1000ml||7/10|
This model uses slightly more electricity than the Pro Breeze 500ml, 40 watts. In most cases, you still won’t notice this on your electricity bill. I recommend the Manwe 900ml for minor damp issues in small spaces such as bedrooms. Please refer to our size guide if you have any further questions.
Best Budget Dehumidifier Under £100 – Pro Breeze 1500ml
The Pro Breeze 1500ml is the 500ml model’s big brother. We really like this model because it offers much better performance than the smaller version. This model has both the largest extraction capacity, 500ml/day and water tank 1500ml available in any mini dehumidifier. The remarkable thing about the Pro Breeze 1500ml is that it only consumes 40 watts of electricity. It is hard to find the same performance in dehumidifiers that only consume 40 watts.
|Extraction Rate -500ml||8/10|
|Water Tank Size – 1500ml||8/10|
We recommend this model for single rooms with moisture issues. If you think you require something more powerful than the other mini dehumidifiers, then this is an amazing budget option. If you still think this doesn’t offer enough performance, then please, read on. . .
Runner Up Dehumidifier Under £100 – Inventor Fresh 12L
Similarly to the Ansio 12L dehumidifier, the Inventor Fresh 12L is a great buy. It offers amazing value and has a 12L water extraction rate and a 2L water tank. The model offers some of the best performance metrics for the price paid. The Inventor Fresh 12L is perfect for more widespread damp issues in homes.
|Extraction Rate -12L||9/10|
|Water Tank Size – 2L||8/10|
Other features are included like automatic restart, time and SILENT MODE. We love the addition of silent mode because it makes it easy to run the dehumidifier in a bedroom or living room. Sometimes dehumidifiers can be quite noisy but the addition of silent mode gets rid of this problem. Out of the Inventor 12l and Ansio 12l, we prefer the Ansio. This is because the Ansio includes a 2-year warranty and has a bigger water tank. The exception though is if you would like the silent mode, then you should get the Ansio 12l instead. If you are interested in the quietest dehumidifier, you should read our article on it.
Best Moisture Absorber Under £20 Unibond Aero 360
The Unibond Aero 360 is the most well-known moisture absorber in the UK. You have probably come across these before and recognize them. Many people use them for minor damp issues because they are cheap, silent and do not use electricity. We have reviewed them in more detail here. They are perfect for smaller spaces such as storage cupboards, caravans, and minor damp issues. One thing we like about these is that you can put more than one in each room. This lets you control how many you use to control the damp issue. More serious damp issues will require you to use more units.
|Extraction Rate -Variable||5/10|
|Water Tank Size – Approx 400ml||6/10|
What to Look for in a Cheap Dehumidifier
If you are wondering what to look for in a cheap dehumidifier then we have prepared a handy list for you. We have included the features that we think are most important in finding a good cheap dehumidifier.
Water Extraction Rate
Probably the most important feature of a budget dehumidifier is the extraction rate. Obviously the higher the extraction rate, the more water it can extract. It is worth noting that manufacturers list extraction rates that are possible at 30ºC and 80% relative humidity. In real life, they will not extract as much water as the manufacturer says. Despite this, a higher stated extraction rate still means more water will be extracted.
Water Tank Size
Water tank size is an important feature. The main implication of water tank size is how often you will need to empty the dehumidifier. Smaller tanks will need emptying more often than larger tanks. Some models offer continuous drainage options which means you don’t need to empty the tank.
This is one of the most important aspects of a dehumidifier. We have covered energy-efficient dehumidifiers in detail here. The most important thing to note is that higher energy consumption equals a higher energy bill. Always check the wattage of a dehumidifier before you buy it. Cheaper dehumidifiers usually consume more electricity than their more expensive counterparts.
Dehumidifiers produce noise, sometimes more than you might expect. Most of those we have reviewed here will be very quiet but it is always worth checking the noise level. We have covered the quietest dehumidifiers in great detail here. The feature will matter more or less depending on where you want to use the dehumidifier.
This can be an important feature if you intend to move the dehumidifier around a lot. Most of the dehumidifiers we have reviewed here are lightweight. Still, if you intend to move the product around a lot, please check the weight in the product description. Vulnerable users may have a harder time moving around a 10kg dehumidifier than healthy individuals.
This will matter to some people more than others. If you don’t care at all about style then more power to you. If you have just renovated a room and want to make sure you have something that fits in, then you might value style a bit more.
Cheap dehumidifiers that offer good performance for less than £100 can be hard to find. Luckily for you, we went out and found them all for you. We think the selection presented here includes many of the best dehumidifiers for under £100. We looked at the key features of each model when deciding whether or not they made the cut.
