I live in an early 1980’s small two bedroomed semi-detached house with original wooden (and very draughty) windows. We have a two person occupancy with an area of approx. 300 sq.ft. I’d done a lot to insulate the house – fitted acrylic secondary window glazing, placed an additional 200mm of loft insulation, fixed the draughty front door and a door curtain – but as a result the house was suffering from really bad condensation. In the morning there would be a puddle of condensation water on the window sills and this was causing black mold to form around the window frames and adjacent walls. The house also felt damp, even with the central heating on. The bathroom does not have an extractor fan and after morning showers the upstairs bathroom and bedrooms felt very clammy.
So, after reading the reviews of dehumidifiers, I settled on the Meaco 25L, which should be powerful enough to reduce the condensation to a minimum. Although this model was right at the top end of my budget, I considered that the features – large tank capacity, ability to dehumidify the whole house, low energy consumption and the ability to dry laundry justified the high cost.
I ordered the machine directly from Meaco as they offered the lowest price, a 3 year warranty and free next day delivery.
Setting up the machine was simple and I located it in a corner of the lounge so that the air blew out up the stairway since the upstairs rooms suffered the worst condensation.
After a week’s use:
- Well made and solid design, simple to set up and use
- Powerful dehumidifier, quite capable of de-condensating a small 2 bedroom house
- Low energy usage, even on the highest 270W clothes drying setting
- Excellent as a tumble dryer alternative. Hang your damp laundry on a drying rack, set it to clothes drying mode and it’ll all be dry in a few hours
- Big tank capacity. Even with the unit working for 12 hours I only needed to empty the tank once a day
- Set to 55% humidity in “auto” mode and let it run 24/7
- Fairly quiet except in clothes drying mode
- The whole house feels noticeably warmer and more comfortable even with no central heating switched on
- It’s a big unit and stands out a mile in a small house or flat
- Does not have a remote control
- My unit has an intermittent rattle/vibration which is very annoying and I have to give the thing a tap or a shake to stop this each time. My review drops a star for this reason
- No reason why at this price it can’t be wireless enabled to control via a phone app so that it can be switched on with the central heating

The dehumidifier arrived the same day as the purchase date with no issues during collection. Having researched extensively at all the products available for this purpose, I agree with Which that the Meaco is the top domestic dehumidifier compared with other similar brands.

A very efficient dehumidifier, easy to use, neat and compact.
A little noisy but not really a problem as in a conservatory, so just turn it off if we are using the room.

I’ve been using the 20L Low Energy Platinum Meaco now for a few weeks. The machine is very efficient and economical. It’s nice to see the current humidity level on the display panel and to have the ability to set the required level. Noise level is low enough to run this dehumidifier through the night. I ordered it through Meaco direct, as their price was competitive to the big online sellers, including next working day tracked delivery. I’d certainly recommend this Meaco product.

A total disgrace of a company- tried to order the dehumidifier and their worst customer service first dispatched it then recalled it due to fraud trigger (was dispatching to the new address ) and then advised to cancel it and reorder and promised I will get it next day - which I did, then 4 days (!!!) later they are saying it was not dispatched and
out of stock! AVOID! Shouldn't be in business!!!
