Review

The Combi’s been a solid performer for a few years now. It’s easy to use and has considerably better energy efficiency than the top-scoring dehumidifier, the Goldair GD330. It also comes with a separate heater option. The only downside is it’s quite expensive (but well worth the money).

How we test

Our test was last updated in June 2018. Results published in our June/July magazine are from 2017 due to ongoing testing at the time of print.

Overall score includes:

Water removal (60%): Rated across a range of temperatures and humidity levels.
Energy efficiency (20%): Based on how much energy each model uses per unit of water removed.
Ease of use (20%): We assessed tank emptying, layout and readability of controls, clarity of instructions, ease of cleaning, and how easy the dehumidifier is to move.
