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.

Leaks

After two years of use , it started to leak water from the tank , no holes on the under side of tank, when the tank is removed and left no water leaks when the unit runs , the water started to leak , no way of seeing if the water is missing tank , this is with tank in as far as it will sit, I placed the unit in a tray which holds the water, not perfect I know.

Meaco (U.K.) Limited

Hi Simon, We are sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Meaco dehumidifier. Leaks are generally caused by a build up of dust/dirt inside the dehumidifier. We would first advise giving the filter a good clean with the end of a hoover and then using a cotton bud (or something similar) to clean the outlet pipe - where the water drips from the dehumidifier into the water tank. This will remove any blockages that are preventing the water from draining out of its natural path and causing the leak. We would also advise checking the water tank for any hairline cracks or fractures by filing it with water and leaving it on the kitchen side for a couple of hours. If the water tank leaks, it will need replacing. If this advice does not stop your dehumidifier from leaking please contact our Customer Service team on 01483 234900 / customerservice@meaco.com.

Huge difference

We were struggling with damp and condensation and the dehumidifier has made an absolutely huge difference. It’s easy to use, and not too noisy.

Larger Machine

This machine was a bit bigger and a bit noisier than I had expected, however it seems very well made and works a treat. The control system is just the ticket, Had I seen this machine in the flesh so to speak I would have bought the smaller model as I have a 3 bed bungalow and feel that the 12 litre model would be sufficient. Nevertheless I am happy enough. Delivery was excellent, purchased online from appliance direct.com.

Good Product

Purchased a 20L Low Energy unit approx 12 months ago. Quality product that looks good and works very well. I agree with comments in other reviews, not the quietest of units and is very heavy - not suitable for moving up and down stairs, does however have a good handle should it need to be carried. overall very pleased.

Meaco 20L Low Energy Dehumidifier and Air Purifier

Bought this from John Lewis to dry out our rather damp cellar. It is doing a great job and I really like being able to see the humidity of the air which is displayed on the machine. It is easy to set up and runs quietly. Much better than our previous dehumidifier
