The Benefits of Dehumidifiers

We elaborate on our helpful tips here, but essentially, it’s not only ideal for your health improving it in a multitude of ways, but also, ideal for your home. They reduce damp, moisture rich air, help reduce or even combat mould, and mildew, musty, stale smells and reduces the chance of dust mites developing.

Don’t Let Winter Ruin Your Boat – Yachting Monthly
- Wednesday, 21 June 2017 10:42
Damp and mould can occur during winter as windows are closed and the surface of walls and windows become colder because the outside air temperature is lower. The moisture becomes trapped within a boat and when it comes into contact with the colder surfaces it starts to condense.
Preventing damp and mould by opening a window to bring in fresh air will work if you are heating the room up, because, by increasing the air temperature, you will decrease the relative humidity of that air. For example, if you pull air in from outside at 10°C and 80%rh and then heat it up to 20°C, the relative humidity of that air will fall to around 52%rh. But, when a boat is left empty and unheated for long periods, and contains possessions that are sensitive to changes in moisture, then there is a potential for damage if they absorb and hold the excess moisture in the air. In our example, if air comes into an unheated space at 10°c and 80%rh then it will stay at 80%rh. It could well be that the internal temperature is slightly higher than the outside due to insulation but unless it is (in this example) 5°C warmer, the incoming air will not dry below 60%rh. This is the upper end of a ‘safe’ relative humidity zone by conservation experts.
One of the biggest worries for many boat owners is how to prevent such damage in the winter months when conditions are cold and wet. Nothing is worse than returning to a boat after the winter, or even just a few weeks, to be welcomed to a musty smell, an indication of a damp or mould problem.
Every day we have people who call us to say that they are suffering from mould or musty smells over winter. The Meaco DD8L Zambezi will combat these issues and offers more functionality, more control and more options then any other domestic dehumidifier on the market today.
We were very pleased to find our Meaco DD8L Zambezi featured in the December issue of Yachting Monthly in 2016. You can purchase yours here.

We get lots of dehumidifier questions via email every single day and although we answer each and every one via email as fully as possible we thought that it would help those searching for information on dehumidifiers to answer some via video as well. So here is our first ever video question and answer film.
Today we have six questions from five different visitors to the Meaco website, the questions are;
Nigel: Can I use a Meaco DD8L on a boat at temperatures below 10°C?
Barry: What do the numbers in your model names relate to, is it tank size?
Ronald: How do you use the timer function on the dehumidifier, mine will not run continuously?
Sian: If I put a Meaco 20L at the bottom of the stairs will it deal with condensation upstairs?
Michael: Can I put a Meaco DD8L on continuous drainage in the garage and should I cover it up when I am woodworking as this creates a lot of dust?
