Product description

Colour Name:White  |  Size Name:8 Litre

Product Description

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.

Had this unit for ten months now and I was very impressed by its operation. Quiet and effective at reducing humidity, with the added bonus of hot air output from the top of the unit. I use it with the drain pipe so that I don't have to empty the reservoir when it fills with water.

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!

This works very well and after running continuously for a couple of days has now got the humidity down enough such that it cycles on and off. The controls are straightforward to use. Its relatively small size is an advantage. As others have commented, it's a bit odd removing the tank from the back of it, but the simple solution is to place it with its front side towards a wall.since there are no vents nor anything you need access to on the front (the dried air is expelled from the top). This is the first time I have had a dessicant-based dehumidifier and I am very pleased with it. It emits a short set of beeps when the tank is full, but they're not excessively loud and it only does this once, so for me that's fine.

Very effective at removing condensation.

Although it may operate consistently at 39db at the quietest setting, it does make louder noises when it engages on/off, therefore for me its too noisy for a bedroom without unbroken sleep. However, it seems to deal with the bedroom if I leave the dehumidifier on the landing with the bedroom door open, so no need for it to be in the bedroom.

The design could be better. When you remove the water tray, water continues to drip from the dehumidifier on to the floor. The base is not smooth so it leaves a vey distinctive indent in the carpet (not great if you want to move it about). A dehumidifier is not supposed to be a feature, and it would look better without the blue stripes down the side and the gratuitous big green product logo on top.

Overall I would still buy again, but some subtle product adjustments could make this from something that does the job to a more desirable product.

Use this every day for 3-4 hours a day before/after showers and on cold nights. Is really effective and pulling moisture out the air and has cured our damp bathroom ceiling. Can be left on all the time if needed and will automatically switch on/off when humidity rises/falls. Bangs out warm air too so warms a cold landing like ours nicely. It makes a blowing noise which is expected and has different fan speeds which get noiser the faster they go. It also has a clothes drying setting where you can leave it in a small room with the door closed as your damp hung up clothes and will draw the moisture out of them. There are videos on utube about it, they are worth watching. It's quite compact too. It can be left in a caravan/garage/outhouse too as long as it has a pipe fitted to the water outlet so it can constantly drain because it only has an 8L tank, which fill very quickly because it's so effective.

An excellent piece of kit. I read all the reviews regarding other dehumidifiers on the market which all had very poor reviews, this model had the highest reviews of them all and for good reason.
I switched it on straight out of the box and within a few minutes there was water in the bottom of the tray, within 3 hours of running on medium in our north facing bedroom the tray was full and the room felt warm (it's quite a large room). In the 2 days we've had it we must have emptied the full tray 4 times and that's with it just running during the day.
I'm a light sleeper and live in a rural location with no noise at all at night and therefore i wouldn't like to sleep with it in the same room with it running, even on the low setting, for other people it would be ok I think.
It's dead easy to use, lightweight easily moved to different parts of a large house and isn't visibly noticeable at all.
I bought it as we had a bad damp problem in this north facing bedroom and it seems to have dried this up in two days.
It looks pretty well made and robust enough to last.
I know it's early days but My wife and i are thrilled with it and would recommend it to anyone.
