- Multi- award winning desiccant dehumidifier

- Quieter on low fan speed - just 39dB
- Great for winter use as it warms the air as it dehumidifies
An 8 litre desiccant Dehumidifier that works at temperatures between 1 - 37 degrees C. It is very light and quiet with a laundry mode that makes this suitable for the home or garages, boats, motor homes, etc. The current version of the Meaco DD8L series represents 8 years of development of the desiccant dehumidifier and the very best domestic dehumidification technology available today. We have used our experience and just as importantly, listened to our customers, and redefined what was already a class leading dehumidifier.
The Meaco DD8L provides the best possible solution between energy saving and accurate dehumidification. When the target relative humidity is reached it runs its fan for 5 minutes to check that all is ok and then it turns itself off to save energy. Thirty minutes later it turns its fan back on and samples the air again for 5 more minutes. If the relative humidity has increased above its target it starts dehumidifying again, if the relative humidity is ok it goes back to sleep again for another 30 minutes. In a well sealed home/boat/caravan or garage this will mean that the fan will run for just 10 minutes an hour instead of 60, using just 1/6th of the power of other desiccant dehumidifiers. A small, but very important feature is that the dehumidifier allows you to select a quiet fan speed independent of the relative humidity that you might wish to select. This ensures that the dehumidifier will stay in quiet mode whenever you want absolute quiet, for example at night. Finally the dehumidifier turns off when the internal bucket is full and the bucket itself has a splash proof cover to make sure that not a drop is split as you pour the water away.
The only difference between the DD8L and the DD8L Junior is that the DD8L has an anti-bacterial filter and an ioniser to help keep the air cleaner, especially important for anyone who suffers from allergies. A by-product of the dehumidification process is that the DD8L warns the air by 10-12 degrees C as it dries, thus helping to warn the building. It should also be noted that a desiccant dehumidifier with an 8 litres a day extraction, is equivalent to a 16 or 20 litre compressor dehumidifier.

However mine has now stopped working and on contacting Meaco they are suggesting that it probably has dirt in it as I haven't been cleaning the filter every two weeks. As someone else has pointed out the filter is no more than a small plastic mesh rather than a cloth material and so will be useless at stopping dust getting in.
Meaco advised over the telephone that I could blow cold air through the air sensor holes to try and solve the problem (which didn't work) otherwise I would have to return it and they would charge me £70.00 for fixing it if it was the dirt causing the malfunction. Of course how would I know any different if they ultimately say it was dust causing the malfunction rather than another problem and charge me the £70.00 anyway. With the carriage and potential £70.00 charge I don't know if it's worth returning or buying a new unit.
So beware if you operate the unit in a dusty environment and it certainly isn't a dehumidifier that you can leave alone for any length of time, contrary to the product description which claims it is "great for unmanned situations like boats, caravan's & holiday homes over the winter". That doesn't stack up if you have to clean the "filter" every two weeks!
Beware costly mistakes can be made when buying a dehumidifier.
Last year I noticed mould in various places in my home. Nothing serious but clearly it shouldn't be there. So I put my mind to some research and came up with the answer "dehumidifier". But what one, after more research I went for the Mitsubishi Electric M116VX-e1 compressor dehumidifier, ...wrong
The Mitsubishi is a great machine, well built but soon found because of the temperature gradient where large parts of the day in my house is under 17C and on a cold winters night the temperature falls away over night to 13C, the machine was struggling. This was not due to a fault with the machine but because I now understand compressor dehumidifiers should not be used much under 18c and certainly not under 16C.
The Mitsubishi does have a low temp setting but I am still not convinced It makes the machine efficient at low temperatures while using more watts. The Mitsubishi is an excellent Machine in the right environment meaning the correct temperature gradient.
After taking to the staff at Meaco who are really helpful, I have changed over to a Meaco DD8L a desiccant dehumidifier.
The result is unbelievable. I now have a real working solution to my problem. The problem is not a major one but it's there.
The DD8L been working hard for a week now and just reached a point where it is just turning on and off. Lost track of the water the DD8L removed. Yes a desiccant dehumidifier costs slightly more to run but one also gains from the heat the machine producers and is efficient within the 24 hour temperature gradient of my home.Read more ›
I started of having this in the hall and running it on medium power it was on for 8 days straight before it began to cycle on and off - target humidity of 50% was reached. We have a bog standard 90's built 3 bed semi by the way. Using a weather station I could monitor the humidity in different rooms and found the average downstairs to be about 53%, upstairs was around 55%. The hallway was 50%. I'd hate to think what the figures were before we had this running 8 days non stop. After a couple of weeks it became pretty clear that there was an issue because rather than cycling on and off it seemed to still be running the majority of the day without the humidity in the rest of the house dropping, I came to the conclusion that having this so close to the front door wasn't a great idea and we were probably drying half the street. It was moved to the landing upstairs.
On the landing it operates much more how I would expect, running for a few hours each day in order to keep the humidity in all the bedrooms/bathroom to about 50-51%. Downstairs the figure hovers around 54-55% so not bad but the Meaco isn't reducing humidity in the whole house down to its set level. This isn't a big house and I'm careful to leave the doors open during the day for airflow. The other thing is that if you try running it in the lowest fan setting eco mode then it's a waste of time. At that setting ours will run 20+ hours a day.Read more ›
