MeacoWall in QA Education Magazine’s Swimming Edition

We thought that the new MeacoWall Mounted Dehumidifiers deserved to look stylish and modern on the outside as well as being beautiful on the inside. So, after months of hard work on the interior and exterior design, it’s fantastic to see that QA Education think they look great.

Take a look at MeacoWall in QA Education Magazine’s Swimming edition here.


Meaco dehumidifier featured in T3

Fantastic to have our 20L Low Energy Dehumidifier, also a Which? best buy 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017, featured in T3’s September issue.

If you haven’t already, it’s worth investing in a dehumidifier as although the British summer is drawing to a close, there are numerous benefits to using a dehumidifier throughout the year. In summer, they are ideal for reducing the likelihood of allergies, difficulty breathing, watery eyes and sneezing, and it reduces the humidity levels, decreasing the onset of mold and mildew.

We have a  vast range of dehumidifiers for the home, commercial use and also super sleek and stylish wall mounted ones to choose from.

Meaco Zambezi dehumidifier awarded Which? Best Buy

Meaco Zambezi dehumidifier awarded Which? Best Buy

Meaco DD8L Zambezi rated as outstanding, and a brilliant dehumidifier for its rapid water extraction, and energy efficiency

The best dehumidifiers dry rooms quickly without using much energy, are easy to use and are quiet. The Which? review team recently examined the Meaco Zambezi and earned a Best Buy endorsement

Zambezi is the result of three years of intense research and development, incorporating several ideas originating from customers. It offers more functionality, more control and more options than any other domestic dehumidifier on the market.  It has an attention to detail never seen before and offers more options than any other dehumidifier, including six world firsts.

Zambezi is able to extract up to eight litres of water from the air each day, and has three fan levels, to help choose between higher intensity or milder extraction. It also has a clothes-drying function, which is useful for drying clothes inside on a clothes horse. Its ioniser cleans the air that it sends back into the room. According to the Which? expert review, “You’ll be delighted with how quickly this dehumidifier pulls water from the air, whether it’s in your lounge or an unheated garage. It aced our tests both in room temperature and a colder environment.”

The reviewers found it did not use too much energy when extracting water, resulting in quick results that you won’t need to pay through the nose for.

Its light weight at 8kg, with a handle to help move it around, makes it easy to use. The test results continue: “You’ll find this dehumidifier generally really easy to use. You won’t have any problems using the controls, it’s simple to move around thanks to its compact design, and it doesn’t get knocked over easily.”

The Which? review found the auto-setting function worked well. “The measured humidity in our testing chamber was a little higher than our chosen value when above 60%, but you can generally trust it to do a good job.”

When it came to noise it’s about average, and its water tank holds up to 2.94 litres of water. Rather than emptying the water tank, there is a continuous drain facility – you attach a hose and lead it down a low-level drain outlet, or perhaps a sink, where collected water should flow.

Summing up, the expert review at Which? commented, “This dehumidifier easily earns our Best Buy recommendation. It’s energy efficient, excellent at extracting water and really easy to use. It’s a brilliant dehumidifier that extracts water quickly whether working at room temperature or in colder conditions.” When asked “should I buy it,” the answer was a resounding Yes!

Chris Michael, director of Meaco comments “We are thrilled to receive this expert and independent industry recognition. It is a tremendous endorsement of the Meaco brand, with the Zambezi being the third Meaco dehumidifier to receive a Which? Best Buy accolade.”

With a strong commitment to the environment, Meaco supports the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, and for every sale of a Zambezi, £2.00 goes to this Foundation to assist their Elephant conservation work in Africa.

Another award for the Meaco 25L Ultra Low Energy Dehumidifier

We are very proud of the Meaco 25L Ultra Low Energy Dehumidifier and sincerely believe that it is by far the best compressor dehumidifier in our range.  The 25L Ultra Low Energy is Europe’s first

Best Buy Dehumidifier

The Meaco 25L Ultra Low Energy Dehumidifier beats off the competition to be awarded T3 Magazine’s Best Buy award

DC Invertor dehumidifier and it is the DC Invertor technology that makes the 25L so much more energy efficient than other machines and quieter.

The facts are that the 25L Ultra Low Energy Dehumidifier is the cheapest way to remove water from the air, it will remove more water than any other domestic dehumidifier and in low fan speed it is the quietest Meaco compressor dehumidifier, almost as quiet as a desiccant dehumidifier.

So the 25L Ultra Low Energy Dehumidifier ticks all of the boxes that customers want when they are looking for a dehumidifier.

This is why Good Housekeeping Magazine found it worthy of a Tried and Tested award and T3 Magazine gave it a Best Buy award.

DehumidifiersReviewsHQ said that the 25L represented “the pinnacle of truly smart technology in the home and has allowed Meaco to make the 25L a genuinely ‘hands-off’ dehumidifier.”

The 25L works really well for so many applications.

  • Happy at lower temperatures
  • Great at normal and high temperatures
  • Brilliant at drying washing
  • Auto modes to keep an eye on your unoccupied home/boat/caravan
  • Perfect control modes for museums
  • Really quiet for day to day use outside your bedroom

As time goes by more and more people are discovering just how good the 25L is and I would urge you to have a good look at the 25l before you decide which dehumidifier to buy.  Yes it is the most expensive dehumidifier in our range but it is also the best compressor dehumidifier and as I often found the price is soon forgotten by the quality is remembered forever.


Don’t Let Winter Ruin Your Boat – Yachting Monthly

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.

Meaco in Yachting Monthly

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.
