The very best in dehumidifier design

Welcome to the latest in dehumidifier design: the new Arete range. This collection has been in development for five years, with our dedicated United Kingdom based design team working closely with more than 2000 customers to find out exactly what makes the perfect dehumidifier.

We chose the name Arete because she is the Greek Goddess of Excellence in all things. That was our goal with this new range – and we think it’s what we have achieved. With real attention to detail and exhaustive testing and trails, we believe this is the perfect dehumidifier. 

This is our most energy efficient dehumidifier range yet. Ultra-quiet and with a host of special features, living with Arete will be a breeze.

If you have problems with condensation, damp, mould or high humidity, Arete is the answer – whether for your home, office, wine cellar, garage, boat, caravan or workshop.

Is this our best dehumidifier ever?

We really believe it is. We’ve devoted years of design know-how and all those insights from our customers, and that means Arete is the result of real innovation and collaboration. The added details such as the air purification, the super-quiet operation and the consideration of how the unit fits in with your home means that Arete is at the top of the pile as far as we’re concerned – and we’re looking forward to hearing what you think too!
