Description

What are the running costs?

 

The most common question that we get asked by customers is: "How much does it cost to run a dehumidifier?" And our answer is: “It costs less with Meaco!”

 

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.

 

The Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier uses just 157 watts of electricity – meaning a cost or just 2p per hour (based on a 15.32p/kWh). That’s because we have updated the design and integrated new technology that helps the units to run more efficiently than the older models you might find elsewhere. And, if you read our customer reviews, you’ll see that the low electricity costs are one of the big benefits of choosing from our low-energy range.

 

 

Quiet solution for smaller homes

 

We’ve made this dehumidifier as quiet as possible so that you can use it in smaller homes without disturbing sleep, work or play – and we’ve won a coveted Quiet Mark award to prove it. At just 41dB, it’s unobtrusive and just gets on with helping your home have drier, cleaner air and reducing damp and condensation. The Laundry setting means you can also use it confidently to dry washing quickly indoors.

 

 

What am I getting?

 

This unique range gives you a range of features that allow you to dry your home safely, easily and quietly, resulting in a healthier and more comfortable living environment for you and your family:

  • Unique 2-in-1 mode allows you to use this unit as a dehumidifier in Autumn/Winter and as an air purifier in Spring/Summer
  • Costs just 2p/hour to run, based on 15.32p/kWh
  • Cleans the air with a free HEPA filter to remove allergens
  • Unique Meaco control logic saves money and improves performance*
  • Digital display to show you the current room reading
  • Variable humidistat – you can set relative humidity from 30% to 80% in 5% steps
  • Louvre design directs the dry air through a wide angle
  • 24-hour off timer
  • Child lock facility
  • Strong carry handle

 

 

The Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier 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 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.

Cute little dehumidifier

Nice design, easy to set up and use. Pulls a fair amount of water from the air - useful in a flat where no windows in bathroom. I use the air purifier function occasionally but it's hard to be sure of its effects (whereas you can see the water in the tub!)

Excellent

I had hired the bigger version [20L] a couple of times in the past and been v impressed. So, now I've bought one (but the 12L - which is more than adequate for the job). It's excellent - quiet, efficient, really easy (with its digital display of humidity) to operate and to empty. Am delighted.

Intuitive interface, quiet operation but with a serious HEPA filter design flaw

Pros: Quiet operation Intuitive interface Air purification mode with no dehumidification Cons: The replacement HEPA filters have a rectangular shape that does not cover the whole air inlet whereas the bundled filter has a different shape (trapezoidal) that covers the whole area. If a HEPA filter does not completely cover the air inlet a significant amount of air is not filtered at all !

Meaco (U.K.) Limited

Hello Gregor, Thank you for leaving us a review. The HEPA filters have been carefully designed by our engineers. Due to the position of parts internally the air is drawn into the dehumidifier by the centre of the filter. This means that a very very small percentage of air would enter the dehumidifier via the sides, rather than through the middle. I hope this information has helped and please contact us if you have any further questions. Phone: 01483 234900 Email: customerservice@meaco.com

Great device. Using it since end of last year. Small enough to fit in hallway. Quiet enough to use 24/7 on auto mode. Massive improvement in terms of humidity and air quality.
