The current version of the Meaco DD8L Junior represents 8 years of development of the desiccant dehumidifier and the very best domestic dehumidification technology available today. We have used our experience and just as importantly, listened to our customers, and redefined what was already a class leading dehumidifier.

Up to 80% less energy consumption

It has been standard within the industry for desiccant dehumidifiers to always run their fan continuously, regardless of the relative humidity. They do this so that they can react to rises in relative humidity and start to dry the air again. This provides a level of accurate dehumidification that is over kill for domestic applications. The alternative provided by most compressor dehumidifiers is for the dehumidifier to turn off when the relative humidity target is reached. This saves energy but does mean that the dehumidifier potentially misses increases in relative humidity and could allow organic materials in the home to absorb the excess moisture and mould to grow.

Energy saving and accurate dehumidification combined

The Meaco DD8L Junior provides the best possible solution. When the target relative humidity is reached it runs its fan for 5 minutes to check that all is ok and then it turns itself off to save energy. Thirty minutes later it turns its fan back on and samples the air again for 5 more minutes. If the relative humidity has increased above it's target it starts dehumidifying again, if the relative humidity is ok it goes back to sleep again for another 30 minutes. In a well sealed home this will mean that the fan will run for just 10 minutes an hour instead of 60, using just 1/6th of the power of other desiccant dehumidifiers.

The above is the perfect balance between protecting your environment and keeping costs to a minimum.

This Meaco exclusive control logic is available on the Meaco 12L and Meaco 20L Low Energy Dehumidifiers, Meaco 20L, the Meaco DD8L and the Meaco DD8L Junior, only Meaco make desiccant dehumidifiers that do this.

The Meaco DD8L Junior is one of our best selling dehumidifiers because;

It is great in a flat - very quiet, can dry laundry, very light and quiet.

In fact any house up to 5 bedrooms in size will benefit from a Meaco DD8L Junior.

As a desiccant it doesn't mind low temperatures which means that it is perfect for looking after caravans/boats/garages/classic cars/motorhomes/holiday homes and workshops over winter. Boat owners will appreciate the lack of castors so it will not roll around on board.

The above applications usually require continuous drainage so that the tank does not have to be emptied. The DD8L Junior comes with a hose in the box.

If the power fails, when it comes back on the DD8L Junior will just start again in the mode you left it in. Most other dehumidifiers will go into standby and wait for you to return and press a button to turn them on.

Desiccant dehumidifiers do have a higher wattage rating than compressor dehumidifiers but in the British climate they extract water faster and are therefore on for less time, especially below 15°C.  Therefore, overall, the total amount of energy used will be less.  Please note that all energy consumed by the dehumidifier will be returned to the room as heat and as this is a winter product that is a good thing and is certainly not a waste of energy consumption.

The DD8L Junior has a Laundry mode to dry your washing faster and to prevent the water from the clothes from doing any damage around the home.

A small point that our customers tell us is very important is that the DD8L Junior allows you to select a quiet fan speed independent of the relative humidity that you might wish to select.  This ensures that the DD8L Junior will stay in quiet mode whenever you want absolute quiet, for example at night.

Finally the DD8L Junior turns off when the internal bucket is full and the bucket itself has a splash proof cover to make sure that not a drop is split as you pour the water away.

It comes with a two year parts and labour warranty, as well as the option of extending warranty to five years.

We are very proud of the Meaco DD8L Junior and it represents over 20 years of listening to customers and 8 years of development of desiccant dehumidifiers for the UK market.
