Updated model for Winter 2018 - now just 41dB and even lower running costs.  The best just got better!

The most common question that we get asked by customers is "how much does it cost to run a dehumidifier, are they expensive?", which is a reflection of the cost of electricity in Britain these days. 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 to worry about.

The Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier uses just 165 watts of electricity, have a look around at other 12 litre or indeed 10 litre dehumidifiers on the market and you will see that they are older in design and use a lot more electricity.  All of this will add up over time and with the Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier you don't just get a dehumidifier with low running costs you also get a very good dehumidifier with exceptional build quality.

The unique 2 in 1 mode allows you to use this unit as a dehumidifier in the Autumn/Winter and as an air purifier only in the Spring/Summer as you require.

We have had the Platinum Range tested at a leading international independent laboratory in Hong Kong against the most up to date standard and it passed the highest possible level. To achieve this standard of excellence we had to make sure that each individual component was of the highest quality to maximise efficiency. This means that we can confidently say that the Meaco Platinum Range creates a new benchmark and their proven quality sets them apart from the rest of the market.

There are two models in the range, a 20 litre dehumidifier and this 12 litre model, both offer lower running costs than their peers.  The Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier offers the following benefits;

  • The cheaper way to combat mould, condensation and damp in flats through to 3 bedroom houses.
  • 12 litre dehumidifier.
  • Just 136 watts rated power consumption - 2p/hour based on 15.32p/kWh.
  • 2 in 1 dehumidifier with unique air purification mode for Spring/Summer use.
  • Cleans the air with a HEPA filter to remove allergens from the air.
  • 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.
  • Louvre to direct the dry air through a wide angle.
  • 1 - 24 hour off timer.
  • Child lock facility.
  • Strong carry handle.
  • Free HEPA filter for cleaner air.
  • Delivered price for mainland UK.

The HEPA filter has proved to be a very popular extra with most people buying the HEPA filters when they buy the dehumidifier.  The filters are True HEPA filters which means that they conform to international standards and capture 99.97% of particles that have a size of 0.3µm or larger.  This makes a huge difference to those that suffer from allergies and also will prolong the life of your dehumidifier.

*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.

The Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier comes with a two year parts and labour warranty, as well as the option to extend warranty to five years.

We are very proud of the Meaco Platinum Range and we feel that as a specialist dehumidifier manufacturer this is exactly what we should be doing, pushing the boundaries of what is possible and then challenging the industry to come and join us in designing and supplying dehumidifiers that move the technology forward and make the answer to 'How much does it cost to run a dehumidifier?' - 'A lot less than it used to, especially if you choose Meaco!'.
