The Meaco DD8L Zambezi features in his top three choices. David said its a”very impressive” solution to counter rust when storing vehicles during winter.

You can see for yourself what else he had to say about it by clicking here or reading the extract below. To find out more about our award-winning Zambezi DD8L dehumidifier click here.

 

DD8L Zambezi dehumidifier digital displayIt’s strange how you can become obsessed with something you didn’t even know you needed. Meaco’s smart, cleverly-designed new DD8L ‘Zambezi’ Dehumidifier is such a product. Why would motorists want one? The answer is rust… feared enemy of anyone who keeps a car or two in a garage or small barn. Rust is caused by moisture and boy, does this unit, costing £234.94 – drink it up, especially in the winter. Known as a ‘dessicant’ dehumidifier, it is capable of removing eight litres of moisture a day from the atmosphere, storing it in an easily removed and emptied compartment at the bottom.

In practice it is very impressive, efficiently removing litre after litre of water – helping keep windows, window frames, walls, wardrobes and – of course – your car or bike, bone dry. It’s fascinating to watch it extract up to three litres of water (the capacity of the compartment) in just a few hours, from thin air and it saves time spent with a chamois or squeegee.

It has a laundry setting for drying out damp clothes indoors, can be set to a timer and you can set your target humidity too. It has an anti-bacterial and anti-virus ionizer, a useful carry handle, even a programme it to switch itself on and off at pre-arranged intervals. Ingenious, highly effective and – as you watch the water level creep up – slightly addictive. It’s said to cope with houses of up to five rooms, so should easily sort your garage or damp caravan out too.

Differences between the Meaco 12L Dehumidifiers

Differences between the Meaco 12L Dehumidifiers

We now have three quality 12L dehumidifiers in our range which is causing a bit of confusion for some customers and we get asked on a regular basis what the differences are between the three models.  They will all deal with your damp problems and help with condensation in a flat, apartment or a smaller house up to three bedrooms in size.  But which one is best for you?

Meaco “ABC” 12L

Each model has its own strong point so there are pros and cons to each model, depending on your requirements:

Best for Low Noise

Definitely the MeacoDry ABC 12L as at 35dB it is the quietest dehumidifier available.


Best for Low Energy Consumption

The Meaco 12L Low Energy dehumidifier has the lowest energy consumption of any 12L.

Best for Air Purification

Meaco 12L Low Energy

The Meaco 12L Low energy wins again because it is the only one to have a HEPA filter and it also has an air purification mode.


Best for reading the display

The Meaco 12L-AH wins here as it has a jumbo display making the numbers a lot easier to read.


Most manoeuvrable

Meaco 12L-AH

The Meaco 12L-AH is the only one of the three to have castors.

Best for design

A subjective one but many customers prefer the Meaco 12L-AH and they also comment that they like the way the numbers change colour depending on the humidity level.  The ABC range could also win here because it is available in five different colours.

Here’s a handy table that summarises and highlights the key differences:

 

At the end of the day which one is best for you depends on your needs but hopefully this short guide will help make the decision process easier for you.

Whichever Meaco dehumidifer you choose it will be covered by Meaco’s two year parts and labour warranty which can be extended to five years.

Yachting World selects DD8L Zambezi as a damp buster

Yachting World selects DD8L Zambezi as a damp buster

Guidelines on choosing a suitable dehumidifier for yachts at sea is the subject of the November issue of Yachting World’s Gear Tested feature. We are delighted that the DD8L Zambezi has been rated as one of its top choices.

The article points out that anyone who owns a boat outside of the tropics would benefit from a good dehumidifier. As colder weather arrives, so does damp -one of the constant enemies of yacht owners. The purchase cost of a dehumidifier is a fraction of what damp and mould damage will cost you.

Yachting World points out that unless you have a permanent crew armed with chamois leathers or can ventilate the yacht by opening a hatch (which isn’t generally possible during winter months when a boat is unused), then the only other option is to reduce humidity. This is where a dehumidifier comes in.

Yachting World prefers a desiccant dehumidifier, as they work better than compressors in cooler temperatures and produce warm air in the process. Desiccants are also more portable and quieter. They do warn about insurance policies and leaving a dehumidifier on for long periods of time, though the sophistication and safety of today’s models means faults are rare.

The magazine concludes that dehumidifiers are an essential investment to protect the interiors of a yacht over the winter months.

The DD8L Zambezi has a Which? Best Buy Award and is a great choice for any boat owner. The desiccant dehumidifier has a host of safety features to protect against electrical and corrosion concerns. Its three litre tank can drain into a sink via a hose, eliminating the worry of emptying the tank when the yacht is left for long periods of time. The lack of castors also means it will not roll around on board. Additionally if the power fails, the DD8L Zambezi will just restart in the mode it was previously in.

Yachting World concludes it is “a great all-rounder that consistently gets top reviews.”

Yachting World is a monthly magazine focusing on yachting and sailing that has been in circulation since 1894. The full article is in the November 2018 issue.

Our Partnership with The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation

Here at Meaco we believe in helping the world to become a better place, that’s why we feel it is only right to work closely with a charity. We continue to support the Guildford-based wildlife conservation charity, the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF), and are delighted to have donated £22,000 during the last two years.

With every sale of our top of the range dehumidifier, the DD8L Zambezi, a donation is made to the DSWF to support the care of orphaned elephants in Zambia.

The Zambezi DD8L dehumidifier was launched in January 2016, the result of three years of intense research and development, incorporating several unique ideas originating from customers. It has a Which? “Best Buy” award and offers more functionality, with more control and options, than any other domestic dehumidifier on the market, and includes six “world firsts”. It was named after an orphaned elephant being cared for by the DSWF, as we wanted to add character to this special dehumidifier, plus help with elephant conservation, showing how business and charities can work together, raising awareness for conservation work amongst Meaco’s customers.
