Meaco Dehumidifier Wins Platinum Award

In their December issue T3 reviewed the Meaco DD8L, in a head-to-head against a competitor model and it came out on top, winning T3’s Platinum Award and scoring 5 stars! Top marks!

Also, the Meaco 25L Ultra Low energy dehumidifier was featured in the same issue, in the ‘best of the best‘ feature, within the Best of Living section.

We are pleased that the various Meaco models are consistently rated high and it is great to learn that the publication ‘marvelled at the eight litres of moisture the DD8L extracted daily’.

The Meaco DD8L model is a perfect addition for smaller, damp-prone homes or even offices. It is relatively quiet and helps allergy sufferers with its built-in ioniser and anti-bacterial filter.

Meaco featured and reviewed in T3’s latest December issue

Investing in a dehumidifier will provide a wealth of health benefits. We have collated the top reasons to add a Meaco to your Christmas list below…

  • Dehumidifiers extract moisture from the air. This in turn ensures the onset of dust mites, mould and mildew is reduced by creating an inhospitable environment for them.
  • Dehumidifiers help prevent Asthma attacks by reducing the triggers such as dust mites, mould etc. and helps improve respiratory problems, along with Air Purifiers.
  • Dehumidifiers are unobtrusive, running quietly in the background, needing little maintenance.
  • By reducing the build up of mould and damp, clothes will dry faster and musty smells will be no more!
  • Dehumidifiers significantly minimise the onset of condensation by extracting as much excess water from the air as possible

These benefits are also outlined in Meaco’s latest TV advertising. Have you spotted our adverts yet? If you have, tweet us.

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.
