Dehumidifier companies reported that there was a shortage of dehumidifiers over Christmas and New Year, which is expected to continue in 2024.

The rise in sales of the best dehumidifiers has been put down to homeowners trying to lower their energy bills over the cold winter period with the energy-efficient product proving useful for drying clothes relatively cheaply as well as solving damp and mould issues caused by keeping the heating off in cold, damp weather.
