Overall Winner of the Which? Dehumidifiers Tests 2014.

Which? said - "It's not often we come across a dehumidifier that's this impressive but Meaco have come up trumps with this one. It excelled across the board in our lab tests, so we had no hesitation in making it a Best Buy. It works very quickly, even in chilly air, and is so energy efficient that it won't bump up your fuel bills. The large water tank holds plenty of water, and if all that isn't enough to convince you, it's also significantly quieter than others"
The most common question that we get asked by customers is ‘how much does it cost to run a dehumidifier’, 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.

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 is considerable.

The optional HEPA filter is proving to be very, very popular with customers and 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.

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 12 litre dehumidifier and this 20 litre model, both offer lower running costs than their peers. The Meaco 20L Low Energy Dehumidifier is our top of the range machine for the entire Meaco range of dehumidifiers and is full of exciting features.
