What is a dehumidifier?
A dehumidifier is used to remove moisture from the air and to manage the humidity within a room. They draw humid air through the unit, where the moisture is drawn out into the tank. Dehumidifiers are commonly used in domestic and office environments to help remove damp and condensation. They are also ideal in rooms that have been water damaged from flooding, burst pipes or an overflowing bathroom.

How is this dehumidifier unique?
This dehumidifier removes up to 20 litres of humidity from the air every day – either into its 3.5 litre tank or out using the hose. The electronic controls give you full control of the dehumidifier so that you can set it and leave it alone to run. A combination of the electronic humidistat and the Meaco Control Logic keeps running costs to a minimum. The hidden wheels and strong handle make it easy to move from room to room if required. The dehumidifier is as quiet as a dishwasher in the next room, outputting just 46dBA of noise when in use. It is powered using a mains plug. The dehumidifier has an adjustable fan speed and can operate in a range of temperatures up to 35°C. It can also be set to deactivate using the built-in timer which can save you electricity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought and had delivered to my loacal store, so didn't have to wait in. Well packaged, easy to unpack and setup. Even includes a hose for continuous drain (if you have somewhere to drain it to) Included a simple setup guide, but not a full instruction book ! (This can be printed from Meaco website) Noticeable noise (especially on high fan) but nothing to keep you awake at night if it is outside the room you sleep in (ours in hallway) Within 24 hours noticed less condensation on windows - this will hopefully go on to reduce mould growth. Easy to empty bucket - some dehumidifiers are fiddly, but you will need two hands as a square bucket with water slopping around is not stable when the handle is at the base. Recommend - Yes, does the job it is supposed to. Not tried it on the clothes drying setting yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only lasted 18 months I bought this in November 2014 and its lasted 18 months in total now it has completely died. I've been scrupulous with keeping it dust free etc but it's still died! While it worked it did a great job but at nearly £200 it's not a great investment for this length of time. I maybe would be tempted to take out the 5 year warranty if you buy it. Nothing appears to last much beyond the 1 year warranty these days.

What does the 20 l platinum dehumidifier offer that this one doesn't?

Asked by: Joanna
The main difference would be in power consumption, with the Platinum version (A94RR) operating at 100W less than the standard model, as well as the increased timer control from the standard 8 hours to full 1-24 hour timer control. There is also the option of upgrading the Platinum filter to a HEPA filter to cover allergens as well as bacteria covered in the standard filters.
