This product is currently top of the Which? Dehumidifier Best Buy Table having first been tested in 2014.
"It’s hard not to be impressed with the Meaco 20L Platinum. It literally sucks water from the air and had no problem dealing with the harsh test conditions we put it through. It is really easy to use, comes packed with energy saving features and can be left to run virtually unattended. When compared to other refrigerant dehumidifiers we believe this one comes out on top and, because it is backed by Meaco’s fanatical support, is a perfect buy which you can have complete confidence in."

Is it cost-efficient?
We’re often contacted by customers who are worried about the costs of running a dehumidifier, particularly if they need to run a unit regularly in order to control damp and condensation.
We have always made our dehumidifiers as efficient as possible to help customers keep costs to a minimum and now, we have taken this to a whole new level.
Compared with other 20L dehumidifier models, the savings with our Low Energy dehumidifier can be huge – more than £100 per year. The Which? review notes its cost-effectiveness as well as its performance at low temperatures – something else that not all models can offer.

It is the only type of filter that you can buy with a dehumidifier, and it remove allergens smaller than the eye can see, such as pollen, dust mites, mould spores and pet dander. This helps to keep the air in your home pure, providing a more comfortable environment.

*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 it's 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.
