Here is another of Amazon’s best sellers, the Unibond dehumidifier, or more formally known as the Unibond Aero 360.
It is probably the dehumidifier that you’re most likely to have come across on your local High street and with good reason. This little unit probably sits somewhere between a cheap short term “Interior dehumidifier” solution that you can pick up as a multi-pack from here (I will be reviewing these soon). The mighty compact Pro Breeze Dehumidifier which you can find my review for here.
If you’re buying through Amazon then it’s close enough to one of your average interior dehumidifiers in price. However you can think of the Unibond Aero 360 as one of these on steroids!
I previously mentioned this unit being Similar to The body Source’s Pro Breeze at a snip of the price and here’s why. From the sheer looks of the thing, it looks bordering on “Oh that fits in quite nicely”. What I mean by this, it’s not going to degrade the look of your home. The size and weight of this dehumidifier is also remarkably similar to the Pro Breeze. Weighing in at around just 1kg (with water in it) and standing just a little shorter than the Pro Breeze (See below for exact measurements).
The ideal room size is small to medium. But the real strength in the Unibond Aero 360 over the competition is the aerodynamic device within it. Pushing the tab around as water is absorbed therefore energising itself! This means there are no need for batteries or a plug socket. Get it out of the box, place the moisture absorber inside and it’s ready to start soaking up the damp from the air! This little unit will continue collecting moisture around the clock, whilst you sleep without making a sound!
Now of course, there is a recurring cost to keep the unit running. You could say this is the only down side, but bear with me.
UniBond state that their moisture absorber refills each lasts 6-8 weeks, which I can vouch for. I’m still on my first one and It’s been over 2 months. After buying the initial dehumidifier you’re looking at around £30 for the year once you’ve stocked up on the little moisture absorbers. I’ve shopped around and Amazon still seems to be the cheapest place to get hold of these.
Although this review wasn’t intended to be a head to head the similarities have caused it to go that way. Although I’d like to make it clear there is no winner here, just what is suitable for you.
The truth is, at present I own both with one in the bedroom and one in my office. The Pro Breeze is in the room where I sleep. This is testament to how un-troublesome the low volume humming noise is. The UniBond is in the office. As you’d expect the Electrical Dehumidifier produces water in it’s tank on a day to day basis – requiring more refills. But the UniBond Aero 360 is doing it’s job in the office room just as effectively.
So I would say if you’ve just discovered that you have a small damp problem, or are perhaps a little concerned about the humidity levels in your home the Unibond Aero 360 is the product for you and if the problem gets worse, then move up to the Pro Breeze because it is the next level of severity, it will cover more room and it needs to be worth the slight increase in your energy bill and the commitment of having it plugged in all day, every day.
