Description

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.

 

 

Remove impurifications from the air

 

The free HEPA filter included with this unit is proving to be very popular with customers. 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.

 

 

Leading features

 

When you buy the 20L Which? recommended Low Energy dehumidifier, you’ll benefit from our carefully-designed features:


  • Air purifier mode for spring/summer use
  • Cleans the air with a HEPA filter to remove allergens
  • Just 219 watts rated power consumption - 3.88p/hour based on 15.32p/kWh
  • Unique Meaco control logic that saves money and improves performance*
  • Digital display to show you the current room reading
  • Variable humidistat from 30 to 80%rh is 5%rh steps
  • Automatic, motorised louvre to direct the dry air through a wide angle
  • 1 - 24 hour off timer
  • Child lock facility
  • Strong carry handle
  • Easy glide castors


This unit comes with a two-year parts and labour warranty, as well as the option to extend the warranty to five years.

 

*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.

Meaco 20L Low Energy Dehumidifier and Air Purifier

I've only had it for 4 weeks, but it is doing a good job so far. It is slightly noisier than the Mitsubishi A/C unit I had before, but it is still ok. The compressor gives a low frequency moan (they should use our software: MSC Actran to fix that ;) ). It took about 2 days to get the humidity down to 50% for our 2 bedroom house that was about right given my previous experiences with the Mitsubishi. It seem to have a pretty accurate sensor for the humidity cf. a hand held device I have. I set it at 55% and leave it to do its thing - tending to empty every other day. It does a good job after our showers in the morning, drying washing and cooking. The air purifier is a nice touch. I haven't any scientific comparisons here, but it feels like the Hepa filter is doing its thing ok - but it does slow down the dehumidifying a little. I run it on the low fan mostly, occasionally on the high setting when there is a lot of washing drying - then it does hoover up the moisture noticeably quickly, just at the cost of a little more noise. We have it half way up the stairs and have it on 24x7. You can hear it, but it doesn't affect us, even when sleeping. Longevity remains my main concern given other reviews I read (Which don't run them long enough to comment) - perhaps I will remember to add a comment to this in a year or so

Customer review

We have had a very positive experience with this 20L dehumidifier. Our loft was quite damp and we had mould. This product sorted all that. We were amazed at how much water it soaked up. It has been running almost constantly for about two years now, and we have been very happy. Recently though it has stopped working properly, and I have had a difficult time contacting Customer Services due to the Corona Virus. If someone could suggest a way that I get I touch? *** Hello, thank you for leaving us a review and we are sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Meaco dehumidifier. We are still open as normal however we were closed over the Easter weekend. Please call us on 01483 234900 and we will be able to help you further. ***

I would recommend anyone to purchase the Meaco Dehumidifier. It has made such a difference to a room that felt a bit damp as there was no ventilation in it and is used for drying clothes in the Winter time.
