What are the running costs?
The most common question that we get asked by customers is: "How much does it cost to run a dehumidifier?" And our answer is: “It costs less with Meaco!”
We have always made our dehumidifiers as efficient as possible to keep costs to a minimum and now with the new Platinum Range of dehumidifiers we have taken this to a whole new level and set a new benchmark for our competitors.
The Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier uses just 157 watts of electricity – meaning a cost or just 2p per hour (based on a 15.32p/kWh). That’s because we have updated the design and integrated new technology that helps the units to run more efficiently than the older models you might find elsewhere. And, if you read our customer reviews, you’ll see that the low electricity costs are one of the big benefits of choosing from our low-energy range.
Quiet solution for smaller homes
We’ve made this dehumidifier as quiet as possible so that you can use it in smaller homes without disturbing sleep, work or play – and we’ve won a coveted Quiet Mark award to prove it. At just 41dB, it’s unobtrusive and just gets on with helping your home have drier, cleaner air and reducing damp and condensation. The Laundry setting means you can also use it confidently to dry washing quickly indoors.

*The unique Meaco control logic means that you get the best balance between saving money and accurate dehumidification. When the target relative humidity has been reached the dehumidifier will switch to fan only mode to check that the relative humidity is stable. It will then go to sleep for 30 minutes at which time it will wake up and run its fan again to check the relative humidity once more. If the relative humidity has risen above the set point, then the dehumidifier will start to operate again. If the relative humidity is OK then the dehumidifier will go back to sleep again for another 30 minutes. This process saves a lot of money on electricity, especially when compared against dehumidifiers which keep their fans running permanently regardless of the level of humidity in the room.
