According to the car advice web site HonestJohn the Meaco DD8L Zambezi is “our pick of the best all-round dehumidifiers you can buy.”
The DD8L Zambezi was recently reviewed by Georgia Petrie, extremely timely with the cold weather finally arriving. “This dehumidifier is better for colder environments – which makes it ideal for use in the winter when people crank up the temperatures at home and humidity levels rise. It’s also useful for car owners who don’t want humid air in the garage causing their pride and joy to go rusty, or the seats to go mouldy.”
Georgia tested it out in different locations, most notably upstairs; “While we don’t have a damp problem in our house, the steam from the shower often makes our bathroom feel stuffy in winter – but the DD8L has left a noticeably fresher feeling to the air in the bathroom.”
Ideal for drying washing indoors
She also tried it out near her washing; “Our washing machine is in a little room on the back of our house, which means it gets very cold. This type of dehumidifier is perfect for that kind of environment. Usually, when we hang our washing on the radiator, the windows steam up – but using the Zambezi meant that didn’t happen. This is very useful because it means mould won’t begin to grow where the condensation builds up in the corner of the windows.”
She was impressed with the range of features that come with the DD8L Zambezi; “the DD8L Zambezi is arguably the most feature-packed, advanced desiccant dehumidifier around. Meaco claims the Zambezi offers more functionality and control than other domestic dehumidifiers on the market. And, from our testing of the unit, the Meaco Zambezi sure does do a lot.” These include:
- The 20+ logic system which detects if the humidity rises 20% above what you’ve set it to and then temporarily boosts the fan speed to bring the humidity under control
- The child lock on the unit’s display screen
- The anti-mould coating on the water tank and an anti-blockage system
- Its sterilising ioniser technology gets rid of bacteria, dust and mould, essentially removing the germs that lead to health issues
- The Turn Me On feature means that the Zambezi will also ask you to turn it on in order to bring the humidity back down to a more comfortable level if it rises above 70%
- It isn’t much heavier than a bag of shopping
Helping save orphaned elephants
She also gave a mention to the David Shepherd Foundation that Meaco support. Zambezi refers to a baby elephant that was rescued in by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation in Zambia. Meaco donates £2 from every sale of the Zambezi to this foundation.
