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 energy efficiency to a whole new level.
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, this 12 litre dehumidifier and a 20 litre model, both offer lower running costs than their peers. The Meaco 12L Low Energy Dehumidifier might be the entry level of the range but it still boasts a wide range of features including;

*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 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.
We are very proud of the Meaco Platinum Range and we feel that as a specialist dehumidifier manufacturer this is exactly what we should be doing, pushing the boundaries of what is possible and then challenging the industry to come and join us in designing and supplying dehumidifiers that move the technology forward and make the answer to ‘how much does it cost to run a dehumidifier – a lot less than it used to, especially if you choose Meaco.
