Currently top of the Which? Dehumidifier Best Buy Table having first been tested in 2014.
DehumidifierReviewHQ said - "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."
The most common question that we get asked by customers is 'How much
does it cost to run a dehumidifier?', 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 Platinum Range of dehumidifiers we have taken this to a
whole new level.
With this 20 litre in particular the savings can be huge, over £100 per
year. Just compare it's power consumption of 255 watts with other 20
litre models on the market and you will start to see that the difference
Unusually for a compressor dehumidifier the 20L Low Energy is an
excellent performer at low temperatures as well, something that was
noted in the Which? review.
The optional HEPA filter is proving to be very, very popular with
customers. It is the only type of filter that you can buy with a
dehumidifier to remove allergens smaller than the eye can see from the
air, such as pollen, dust mites, mould spores and pet dander.
The Platinum Range was 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 the Meaco Platinum Range creates a new benchmark
and their proven quality sets them apart from the rest of the market.
There are three models in the range: a 12L dehumidifier, this 20L
model and the 25L dehumidifier, all which offer lower running costs than
their peers. The Meaco 20L Low Energy Dehumidifier is top of the Which?
Best Buy table two years running and was Best on Test in a Scandinavian
test as well. It comes with a two year parts and labour warranty, as well as the option to extend warranty to five years.

The HEPA filter has proved to be a very popular extra. The filters are
called 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. There is one free HEPA filter in the box so you can try it out to see if you feel the benefits.
*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 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.
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!'.
