Ways to keep cool and calm in the home and office this summer

We all enjoy the sunshine and a bit of heat, but not when it becomes unbearably hot and humid. Uncomfortable conditions can adversely effect levels of concentration, with discomfort at night being a major concern for many.

So how can you stay cool now that the hot and humid British summer has finally arrived? With decades of experience in the air humidity industry, the Meaco team are pleased to offer their top tips:

Prepare rooms in advance of daylight 

Keep windows, curtains and blinds closed throughout the day to stop the heat from the sun warming up the room.

Think before opening a window

Only open the window when the outside air temperature is cooler than the room temperature.  Allowing in hotter, more humid air is only going to make the problem worse.

Pre-Cool the Room

If you have a fan or air conditioner, switch this on a few hours before you go to bed.  Keep the bedroom door closed and the blinds and curtains closed to enable the appliance to effectively cool the room. Use an eco-mode if the appliance has one, so that it works as economically as possible.

As summer goes on you may need more pre-cooling

As we get further into summer you will have to run the fan or air conditioner for longer each night to get the room temperature down.  This is because the walls in the rooms warm up and act as a heat battery holding more and more heat within them, so the room takes longer to cool down.

Choose the right cooling fan or air conditioner

MeacoFan 650

Meaco now have three cooling fans, the 360, 650  and 1056, to suit varying room sizes. The MeacoFan range is very low on energy consumption and extremely low on noise levels, partly down to its advanced DC technology, making them a popular choice for use in the bedroom. This also ensures lower running costs, and a better quality of fan.  All have been awarded a QuietMark in recognition of being amongst the quietest cooling fans tested to date. They have an Off Timer so the fans will turn off after a period of time, ensuring you don’t wake up feeling cold in the night, particularly useful in a child’s room. Attention to detail means that the fan does not bleep when the Off Timer turns it off, ensuring a cool and peaceful night’s sleep.

An air conditioner is also an option, but one which is lightweight and with low noise levels. The MeacoCool range of air conditioners is perfect for use in bedrooms, as they are compact, all weighing under 30kgs, and have low noise levels. The Sleep Mode keeps the unit in low fan speed to ensure the lowest possible noise level, which can be combined with the Off Timer to ensure that you do not wake up cold during the night. All are supplied with castors, which, combined with the lower than average weight, make them easy to move about as required, and the remote control allows you to change the settings without having to get out of bed. Low sound pressure levels make them all easier to live with, and a window kit makes the cooling more efficient.

The manoeuvrability of all these products means they can be used 24 hours day, within different parts of the home and in an office. Essential pieces of kit to survive the hot weather.

“This fan is astonishingly quiet.” MeacoFan 650 awarded 5 Stars from Trusted Reviews

image of trusted review logo

Trusted Reviews are different when it comes to online reviews of consumer technology. Unlike other sites they never collude with or accept money from manufacturers and they thoroughly test every product.

Last week they published their in-depth review of the brand new MeacoFan 650 and we’re delighted to reveal that it earned the highest possible rating of 5 stars.

A new addition to the MeacoFan family

MeacoFan 650

The MeacoFan 650 is a smaller version of the best-selling MeacoFan 1056. We’ve developed a scaled-down model with a smaller base, making it even more suitable to place on a bedside table for bedroom cooling. The 650 is even quieter than its larger counterpart, starting at just 20dB, is built with the same energy efficient DC technology and has auto-off functionality so you can get a good night’s sleep in the summer, safe in the knowledge that the fan will turn itself off during the night without disturbing you.

In addition, due to its lower power consumption the MeacoFan 650 includes a USB power port for greater versatility.

Don’t just take our word for it though, here’s a selection of comments from Trusted Reviews about the MeacoFan 650:

  • The MeacoFan 650 doesn’t just give the impression of quiet, powerful cooling; our measurements back it up. This fan is astonishingly quiet.
  • The MeacoFan 650 has a DC motor and seems to be remarkably efficient. We measured power consumption of just 1 watt at its slowest setting, rising to only 8 watts at the maximum – roughly the range between recharging a phone and turning on a low-energy lightbulb.
  • Meaco has added to this fan’s versatility by giving it a standard micro-USB connector on the rear. You could detach its cable from the supplied heavy-duty USB adapter and easily take power from a USB socket in a car, boat or caravan.

In summary:

If you want a powerful and unobtrusive desk fan, and don’t want to spend a lot more on a product such as the Dyson Pure Cool Me, the MeacoFan 650 Air Circulator is a brilliant choice.

Just in time for summer… a new family of fans from Meaco!

Following the successful launch of the award winning MeacoFan 1056AC in 2018, which was a sell-out in the heatwave, Meaco is delighted to announce the launch of two new cooling fans, the MeacoFan 650 and the MeacoFan 360, creating a family of fans to suit all room sizes. These smaller versions are ideal for home or office use, anywhere where a near silent, low energy cooling fan would be useful.

Feedback from Meaco customers found that a smaller size, suitable for bedroom use, and with the option of a gloss finish were needed.  The MeacoFan 650 ticks both of those boxes, whilst the MeacoFan 360 has been introduced to provide a low noise option which takes up very little space, perfect for bedside tables, office desks, and even windowsills.

As well as stylish and light weight, the MeacoFan range is low on energy consumption and noise levels, partly down to DC technology, making them a popular choice for use in the bedroom. This also ensures lower running costs, and a better quality of fan.  All have been awarded a QuietMark in recognition of being amongst the quietest cooling fans tested to date. Quiet Mark is the international approval award programme associated with the UK Noise Abatement Society charitable foundation. The 650 has a noise level starting from just 20 decibels, and at 15 decibels the 360 is the quietest in the MeacoFan range ( equivalent to a babbling brook, a whisper or some rustling leaves.)

Both new models have an Off Timer so the fans will turn off after a period of time, ensuring you don’t wake up feeling cold in the night, particularly useful in a child’s room. The 650 has the option of a light to provide a dim glow in the bedroom, and an ECO mode allows the fan to regulate its own performance depending on the room temperature.  The higher the room temperature the faster the fan speed. It also has a remote control.

Consumers now have the choice of a fan suitable for different room sizes, knowing the whole room will be cooled due to multi-directional oscillation, that bounces cool air off walls and ceilings. The 1056 fan head moves up and down, whilst all three move left and right.  This action and cooling results are a major difference to your standard pedestal or tower fan.

 

Available for pre-order:

MeacoFan 360 Personal Air Circulator £59.99

MeacoFan 650 Air Circulator £79.99

MeacoFan 1056 Air Circulator £99.99 (Available now!)

 

All Meaco products come with a two-year parts and labour warranty, as well as the option of extending warranty to five years. Our team has decades of experience in cooling and are happy to help. Please phone us on 01483 234900 or email: sales@meaco.com

IFA 2018

IFA Berlin, is the largest exhibition of consumer electrical goods in Europe and is on for six days. All the major brands from all sectors of the market have a stand and once again, it has been a great experience being involved.

From the start of the exhibition on Friday we have had a steady stream of our international distributors visiting the stand and afterwards many a good hour in the Irish bar singing and dancing the night away. It is a privilege that so many of them take the timeout of their busy schedules to come and visit us. The image below is of Chris and Toqeer from Meaco enjoying themselves with our swiss distributor partner– Ecofort.

 

Our latest products on show

For first time the new MeacoFan 1056 was shown at the showstoppers press gathering. Showstoppers is where the great and good of the products on show are presented to the press. It went down very well because of its low noise level and the fact that no other fan has the same oscillating movement. It was commented on a few times that it was not switched because it is so quiet
We placed the fan, front and central on the stand and lots of people stopped to get a cool blast of air while walking past with many asking where they can buy it.

 

Quiet Mark

Quiet Mark is an organisation dedicated to reducing the noise from equipment around the house and the MeacoFan 1056 is the only fan that has a Quiet Mark certificate. Poppy Szkiler is a project manager at Quiet Mark and she can be seen here delivering a lecture on the subject of too much noise in our lives to the general public, with our fan on the stage with her.

The fan was not the only product getting a lot of attention, the new 10 & 12 Litre ABC dehumidifiers were also a big hit with our distributors and public alike. Both like the look of the units, choose of colour and low energy consumption that these new dehumidifiers provide. Being available on Amazon will make then easily acceptable to buy.

 

We have already booked a stand for next year so that we can showcase our product to the world again.

Stay cool in the British heatwave

Despite a recent blip in the heatwave, temperatures are expected to rise again, with the forecast hitting the 30’s. Many people are finding it difficult to deal with the heat, and a sudden rise in temperature can cause many different health issues, such as heat stroke.

Key things you can do to alleviate these issues are to stay hydrated and limit time in the sun, especially between 10-4pm. This is especially important for those who are over the age of 65, below the age of 10 and suffer from any form of breathing/heart difficulties.

Avoiding the heat indoors can be easily achieved with our top 8 tips – you’ll be cool as a cucumber in no time!

Block the light out

  1. Don’t let the sun in. Make sure the house doesn’t become hot in the first place by shutting blinds and curtains and windows in the day. This will prevent the sun’s rays and warm air heating your house up.

Exchange a duvet for a sheet

  1. Sleep under a sheet instead of a winter duvet – you could even try putting the sheet in a fridge and the cold will help you fall asleep much quicker.

Ice, Ice

  1. Focus on your ‘body cooling spots’ such as neck, wrists and feet and apply cold water or ice to help you cool down quicker.

Use a MeacoFan!

  1. Use a MeacoFan and a Meaco Air Conditioner to help with the heat. We’ve received rave reviews from The Independent, T3, and recently achieved the ‘Quiet Mark’ award for the MeacoFan. It’s good at keeping a large room cool, and perfect for living rooms and bedrooms, as it’s ultra-quiet, and the oscillating fan ensures air bounces of the walls efficiently. It even has an environmentally friendly Eco mode function. Functionality and design are key to Meaco products. The MeacoFan portable and stylish to be in keeping with the home.

Stay cool

  1. Identify the coldest room in your home and stay there to help cool down.

Refresh with cool water

  1. Have cold baths and showers and drink cold drinks on a regular basis.

Be prepared

  1. Stock up on any supplies you may need (water, food, medication) and keep in contact with any elderly citizens you know to make sure they’re okay.

Monitor the weather

  1. Keep an eye on the forecast, this can be done via TV, radio or social-media, so you know when’s the coolest time to do your errands.
