Description

Attention to detail and amazing operation

 

We listen to our customers – after all, they are the people using our products in their homes and offices, and their feedback allows us to design units that are both functional and a pleasure and practical to use.

 

"The Meaco DD8L Zambezi dehumidifier impressed us by scoring well at extracting moisture from an outdoor environment, so it's ideal for garages or other out-buildings. It is nice and lightweight, so it's also easy to move about with the added help of a carry handle." Good Housekeeping Magazine Tried and Tested

 

Suitable for use in flats, apartments, all sizes of house, cellars, garages, boats, caravans, holiday homes and, in fact, anywhere you have a damp or condensation problem, the Zambezi offers more functionality, control and options than any other domestic dehumidifier on the market today. On its launch, it had no less than six world firsts for a dehumidifier unit:

 

  • The first domestic desiccant dehumidifier to have a digital display
  • The first to have a sterilising ioniser
  • The first to have the exclusive Meaco Energy Saving Laundry+
  • The first to have the Meaco Turn Me On function
  • The first to have the unique Meaco 20+ Control
  • The first to have a Daily Run Timer, On Timer and an Off Timer

 

 

The Digital Display

 

The easy way to programme and set your dehumidifier, the digital operation was the obvious choice for this unit:

 

  • Displays room relative humidity and temperature
  • Select your target relative humidity in 5% steps
  • Access to off and on timer function
  • Access to the unique Daily Run timer
  • Set the unique Meaco Low Energy Laundry+
  • Manage the unique sterilising ioniser
  • ‘Happy’ Zambezi and ‘Sad’ Zambezi on the display
  • The Meaco Timer+ for daily on/off running

 

 

Complete control over your dehumidifier

 

This is the feature that customers really wanted. Not just an off timer, but an on timer, and daily run timer, giving you complete control over when Zambezi turns on or off and allowing you to control your electricity consumption completely.

 

Want Zambezi to turn on and off at a particular time each day? No problem. Want Zambezi to turn on two hours after you have gone to bed? No problem. Want Zambezi to turn off four hours after you left it to dry the laundry? No problem.

 

No other dehumidifier gives you control like Zambezi.

 

 

Zambezi comes with a two-year parts warranty, which can be extended to five years.

Dehumidifier that also provides a small but welcome amount of heat

Not silent but is very very quiet. Machine outputs a small amount of heat which is good news for our chilly workshop.

Bought this for my art studio and it is excellent.

After reading my Which? magazine reviews this unit was recommended as a Best Buy. I bought it to bring the humidity level down from 69% to an optimum 45% relative humidity to preserve my paintings. It has done so within a day. I thoroughly recommend this product. The added bonus is that it also has an ioniser to help remove dust mites and mould. And for you conservationists out there, a donation is made to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation with every unit sold. David shepherd was an artist I greatly admired for his paintings of elephants and other big beasties so that was another bonus too. British Made!

We have tried a few dehumidifiers over the years and this is definitely the most quiet and effective. We wouldn't hesitate recommending it to others. Thank you Meaco. We also love the African elephant and wildlife shelter connection.

I am using it to dry out a caravan that is kept in the shade during winter. So far it seems to be working really well on just the lowest fan setting (with ioniser on). I am very pleased with it.
