Ebac 3850e Review
The Ebac 3850e is currently a limited addition model, but we wonder whether it will eventually replace the 2560e model. Either way, this is our recommended Ebac model, striking a great balance between power, quality and price and offers improvement over the older 2650e in almost every way. Read Ebac 3850e review.
Ebac Amazon 15 Litre Review
The Ebac Amazon 15 litre is Ebac’s ‘budget’ dehumidifier, but it could hardly be considered cheap. Unfortunately the manual control panel isn’t very intuitive and the machine looks ugly. While you don’t get features, what you do get is the much-hyped Ebac quality, but we’d still choose the 3850e. Read Ebac Amazon 15L review.
Ebac 2650e Review
The Ebac 2650e is the older version of the two 3850e, but still a great piece of British engineering. Read Ebac 2650e review.
Who Are Ebac?
Ebac is a private UK limited company founded by John Elliott in 1973, who remains the chairman of the company to this day. Originally concentrating on industrial dehumidifiers they branched into domestic dehumidifiers in 1980 and were the first company to mass produce them in the UK. Ebac dehumidifiers are still manufactured at the same location in County Durham in the North East of England. They have since diversified into other appliances such as water coolers and freezers, but dehumidifiers remain at the core of their business.
Ebac dehumidifiers are quite different to the rest of the market in the way that they are controlled. Most dehumidifiers ask you to set a certain humidity level or extraction power level, however, thanks to Ebac’s patented control system, known as ‘Smart Control’ they recommend that owners simply leave it set to ‘Smart Control’ and let the machine do the rest. According to Ebac, the Smart Control system learns your daily habits and senses the temperature and humidity to then extract the optimal amount. This is all without the owner having to lift a finger and saving energy in the meantime. Ebac only produce refrigerant dehumidifiers, while the rest of the market seems to be increasingly moving towards desiccant dehumidifiers, so it’ll be interesting to see how long they hold this stance.
Why Would You Buy One?
If you’re in the market for a powerful, well-built and long-lasting refrigerant dehumidifier then you can never go far wrong with an Ebac model. Also, their Smart Control system means that you don’t have to worry about dropping the humidity when it’s colder outside or to turn the power up when you’ve stepped out of the shower. Not forgetting that by purchasing one you’re supporting British manufacturing.
