The 2015 winter was a tough one for those of us in the dehumidifier industry because it was so unusually warm, sales in the U.K .of dehumidifiers are driven by cold overnight temperatures whichDehumidifier sales up again forces condensation to form on people’s windows and this in turn drives sales.

Dehumidifier sales in the U.K. seemed to be down overall this winter as the warm weather meant that the demand was simply not there.  Our sales meanwhile were up by 15% as our market share increaed on the back of more good reviews and increased reseller support.  Sales of the low energy dehumidifiers in particular were very strong with sales of the Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier and the Meaco 20L Low Energy Dehumidifier up by 142%.

So a big thank you to all of our customers and resellers and we look forward to more progress with our new models in 2016.
