Inventor 1 Care12L Portable Dehumidifier : very annoying, air freshener doesn’t help

 realy good product and quality. Very happy i recommend for 35m^2 rooms. In silent mode is not very quiet. Sensitive person can’t sleep very well. But on the scale 0-10 i will give 9.

I can not live without it now, makes a huge difference in my flat, every 4-6 hours the water tank is full, no more condensation, no more mould, drys laundry much quickermy kitchen has odour sometimes, very annoying, air freshener doesn’t help, but after use this little machine, the air is even fresher than beforeit works perfect for my small 2 bedroom flat, which is ground floor, very humid in winter, it also looks very cute and elegant, easy to move from room to room, it gave us a warmer and more comfortable winterthe noise is fine for me, same like a cooling fan, better than bathroom ventilator, a bit noisier than a fridge hum, i put it in the bedroom at daytime, in the living room at night time, so it doesn’t bother me at all.

Very good at dehumidifying air. Unfortunately, mine leaks water from the rear left wheel, but only very occasionally – don’t quite understand why or how. The floor that it’s on is perfectly level, and to be absolutely sure, i even ordered some rubber feet (the ones normally used for washing machines) and measured them with a spirit level – still leaks.

Bought to replace an existing 7 year old dehumidifier mainly for laundry drying in our spare room. This is a well designed model with the following benefits:- collects loads of residual moisture without making the washing ‘stiff’ and will dry a fully laden airer overnight including jeans/jumpers- is on castors for easy movement and has a sufficient power cord to move it out into the room (you’ll need an extension lead for more than 1. 5 metres)- very quiet even on standard setting so does not vibrate through the floor and keep us awake (has a quiet setting as well)- easy to program with just +/- for the required humidity setting- easy to remove water bucket. I am not sure why other have reported a difficulty with this unless they are clumsy because it’s the same design as most other dehumifidiers. When the bucket reaches full capacity it still leaves roughly 30mm gap between the water level and the top edgethere are no downsides other than it is simply a ‘white good’ that pleases purely on a functional level. It’s not really designed to inspire awe and wonder ;-).

I will start saying that i received the package in time and it worked wonderfully for 3 months i could really see the difference. Unfortunately, after this period the machine threw an error (ec: related to some sort of leakage) and the company was happy to replace it if i provided a picture. Although, the dehumidifier did not work for a whole day and a half when i went there to take the picture it just worked, but it started to make a strong squeaking sound. So i provided that and they promptly organised a redelivery for just 2 days later. Conclusion:i want to underline that the product is great and it does the job at least for me and i have just been unlucky. However, the customer service was fast and wrapped up everything quickly and well so i’m very happy. I hope this can help you :).

Inventor 1 Care12L Portable Dehumidifier with Silent Mode, Digital Control Panel, Continuous Dehumidification, Auto Restart, with 2-Year Warranty, 207 W, 12 liters, White : I usually don’t write detailed reviews, but i hope this will help other buyers. To begin with i bought this as it was referred by a friend. The first one i bought made an annoying noise so i had to return it as i knew that this was not normal. Fyi i tried to contact the company regarding this and they are customer friendly. After this problem i went back to trying to find the best product for me so i compared and read many articles regarding companies products and specs. To be honest it was the best product at this price range. I have also tried another product 12lt the same price but it was slower than the bigger the unit that collected quicker water, plus it was making the same “whistling” noise. So the best option was to to buy the one with wifi, so if it still made the whiatling noise i would have it on during day and use the wifi to control it. To my surprise it didn’t make the annoying noise so i have no problem with it working whilst at home. I have to say that no dehumidifier is quite and usually they are around 37 to 45 decibel.

Can’t believe how much water this has collected from an apparently very damp bedroom with condensation on the double glazed windows, we have had to empty this twice in one week but my cough at night is one he’ll of a lot better now.

Very easy to use and very efficient , both on electricity use and at moisture collection. Great customer service as well. I was slightly concerned by small judder that occurs when compressor turns off and on. I contacted inventor and, within hours , they got back to me and reassured me that this was normal behaviour. I have now bought a second one, impressed by their quick response and the performance of my first machine. At 15 degrees c , it collects 2 litres of water in 15 hours. As your house temperature goes higher,it tends to collect water faster. It is much quieter than my old dehumidifier and far more efficient. The silent option makes very little difference, so i wouldn’t sleep with it on.

    This product has changed my life quite literally. I purchased this to dry clothes indoors. No more smelly damp clothes, no more waiting for a whole day or running the heating to dry a load of washing, no more rotatinf washing to get it near radiators. This dehumidifier is quiet enough that it cannot be heard in our house when we are asleep. It dries a load of washing in around 3-4 hours i think however i don’t use it during the day. I cannot recommend this enough for washing drying. I haven’t used it for anything else though.

    I purchased this as i use a spare room to dry my washing, after less than 30 seconds of switching it on there was a rattling noise which i assume was a loose fan hitting the wall of the machine. This could of been a manufacturing fault or a damaged in transit. Overall appearance looked and felt cheap with poor instructions, i have returned it and bit the bullet buying a more expensive machine.

      You know what, i didn’t have much faith when i first got it but it’s prooving to be a great dehumidifier. When the fan is on silent and if it’s been running for a few hours, the noise level does go down closer to that 37db but beware, it will go up to 45 from 6ft away when the compressor is on. If you run it for extended periods, it should stay fairly quiet as it doesn’t have to work as hard. Draws water out of the air like nothing i’ve ever seen, it’s very efficient of that. Haven’t measure power draw yet. The wifi function works well, though you have to go back to the menu amd then return to the dehumidifier in order to update the humidity reading on the app. (it’s own display updates in real time) overall very happy with this. Would recomend it over the meaco ones. It’s a bit heavy so if you can’t lift 16. I would recomend emptying the water container before moving.

      Have only been using it a few days, but has made a huge improvement. I like the digital display that shows current and preferred humidity.

      We are very happy with this dehumidifier. Looks good, robust and works perfectly. It decreased the humidity level of our flat from %75 to %60 in less than12 hours. I had to empty it’s water container twice. It fascinating how much water is in the air. No more condensation on windows.

    Bought this due to the fact the flat we are currently renting suffers from damp. We couldn’t believe how much water this gets from the air. Really helps when drying clothes and keeping the condensation off the windows.

    This replaced old dehumidifier- so effective. Managing to change it a couple of times a day. The clothes drying function is excellent. Only thing i would mention is it’s not that quiet, i couldn’t sleep with it on in the room or outside my bedroom.

        I had mould growing on my walls last year and was told to get a dehumidifier this winter. Apparently mould can start to grow at 65% humidity and above and although i can feel the air get dryer, very rarely does the dehumidifier get below 65% even if it’s left on all day. Works well but will know how well it works as winter goes on.
