Black Friday 2022 is the perfect time for anyone struggling with condensation on windows to snap up a bargain on dehumidifiers.
Now that temperatures have really begun to drop, window condensation can be a real problem — not only does it look ugly, but it can also lead to all kinds of other issues, such as mould, damp patches and damage to window frames and sills.
Dehumidifiers can make a big difference when it comes to dealing with condensation, removing excess moisture from the air and replacing it with air at a slightly warmer temperature.
Not only does this help tackle condensation, but if you are struggling to get wet clothes dry now that the outside washing line has been consigned to the garden shed for the winter, dehumidifiers can help speed up the drying process too.
We've been busy scouring the best Black Friday deals on dehumidifiers and have carefully selected the top five — get your hands on one fast and banish that condensation problem for good.

Do dehumidifiers stop condensation?
If you have been wondering how to stop condensation, then a dehumidifier is very likely one appliance you will have been considering purchasing.
But are they worth the money? Before buying a dehumidifier take the time to do your research. Dehumidifiers work by drawing in air, before passing it across a cold surface. This causes moisture in the air to condense, before the now moisture-free air is expelled back out into the room at a warmer temperature.
To ensure you are pleased with your purchase, check what size of room the model you are interested in is suitable for. You should also be wary of some of the very cheap models around — if the water collection chamber is not properly sealed, the water within will be warmed back to room temperature before evaporating back into the house.
