Meaco 10L dehumidifier - 3 year warranty - £94 delivered (6% quidco too) @ Energybulbs

Found 27th Dec 2014Made hot 28th Dec 2014
I've been looking for a decent dehumidifier for a while, and was hoping that something came up in the sales, but sadly not.

Anyway looking around, this one seems decent, but most importantly has 3 years warranty included which is excellent as the last three we've bought have broken after 8 months, 15 months, and 20 months.

The price is listed as £98.95, but use code 'DEC5' for 5% off. I've only just signed up for Quidco, but that gives you 6% off too (I haven't included that in the price). Also nice is that the retailer has free next day delivery.

Whilst it isn't the fanciest on the market, it should work well for what we need, and with peace of mind too.

Price matched currys at 119 plus another 20% off, so same price as this one.

Good price though, so hot from me.

Thats over £30 more lol

Two other Meaco models are Which Best Buys. They have not tested this one.

Thanks guys.

I did consider the more expensive one - the auto modes would be nice to have, but in the end as we will be turning it on when needed, figured we would rather have the cash. The code for 5% off is sitewide though, so knocks a few quid off that too (and add on the quidco for more saving).

I haven't heard of the brand either, though searching online equally didn't give any horror stories, which was the main thing. Also one of their products got a Which? Best Buy 2014, which helps reassure me.

Can you request them to pricematch via email/phone before the purchase?

Do you know if this one works well in low temperature?

It's £119 in John Lewis but not sure about stock

Had a Meaco for approx 3 years and used approx for all winters, never had any problems and they do the job well

Please look at desiccant dehumidifiers as bit more money but personally, worth it

I think the dessicant are too dear to run so prefer these as long as your house is heated above 15 degrees.

why you gonna put in the freezer to get the moisture out

I've used meaco and again no faults I bought 1 dehumidifier and it was good but only lasted a year so I bought another with 5 year warranty and that lasted 2 years but got it fixed under warranty and they was really good with Communication :-)

Maybe but you will need your heating on less so save that way

nice one... we've been told that we have "moisture absorbing" walls in our house and the temperature reaches 16 degrees max with the heating on most of the time... so just trying to deal with the problem as unfortunately the estate agency is not

We run a DD8L and a DD8Ljr in our home over the winter to combat condensation on the solid walls. They're pretty effective. Each uses about 350W on the low setting or 660W on high, but because they pump out warm, dehumidified air they perform a useful heating function. Both broke down within 2 years and although the repair service was okay I would definitely recommend buying an extended warranty. The timer is of limited use.

I bought one on the back of a good review from a certain consumer organisation and a youtube video.

I am quite disappointed as it collects water very quickly because it spews out warm air. Warm air in the air sucked back into the machine and hence a lot of water in the tiny tank, er, no, minuscule container which is itself a joke - it keep spewing out water when you move the machine; and my machine only got 8L, it cuts off frequently and very quickly.. I wish I had not bought it. 10L is not going to hold a lot. I wish I hadn't bought it and so I could have bought the ebac yesterday from Amazon which came at a cracking price .. probably with 5 years' guarantee as they are from ebac... My 2014 ends with lots of regrets - wish I hadn't bought the Bosch from Currys, I want a Samsung...

Another way to combat condensation on solid walls could be to paint them with paint proprietory for bathroom or even masonry paint. My front bedroom faces west and used to have terrible condensation on walls and windows and if I ran my hand over the walls, I could feel the water. My neighbour told me he used masonry paint and bingo, problem solved. I ran my hand on the walls last night, no more water.

I see a lot of dehumidifiers in use every year and by far the most reliable in a real world situation have been Delonghi.

Thanks for posting. Just what I needed.

Good dehumidifier. Trusted brand.

Bought the big brother of this Meaco excellent brand

iv used this paint to do all my external house walls and in fact I think my interior walls are very damp because of it. I painted them 2 months ago from inside and already they have damp and I can see the walls are wet and seem to be dripping at times.

never happened in 8 years !

Isn't the one at currys the 2.3 litre one?

Sorry I see that it is the same 10L extraction but the tank size is 2.3 litres

Did you request this in store looks like a great deal, been after one for a while
Edited by: "lidds" 28th Dec 2014

The meaco dd8l (dessicant based) is much quicker to run and better at extracting damp from walls/ basements etc.

The room will still be producing the same amount of condensation as before, so where is it going now? Or has the paint increased the room temperature? I have similar problems would love a solution.

nice spot op

Guys you are wasting both energy and money with a dehumidifier. I live in a solid wall house and had a dry master from Nuaire installed. I have not been bothered by damp or condensation in 4 years. I have since installed one at another property and my mother now has one. Say goodbye to your dehumidifier.. nuaire.co.uk/pro…at/.

Interesting - but could you let us know how much each of the two installations cost, and the approximate size of each house? I'm guessing we're talking a fair bit of money if you include the cost of the component parts and the installation?

I suffer from condensation quite badly within my home with water and water drips on the windows, I googled on the cures and dehumidifiers and devices like the above were mentioned but they also suggested to try to remove clothes on clothes racks (especially wet ones) and also not to put wet clothes on the radiators either. Double or triple glazing was mentioned to help also.

Keeping the doors open to provide better and cleaner air flow and also to open the window every now and then.

Since doing so my condensation has improved so has the air quality within the house. While it requires a bit of effort on my part it certainly sounds easier and cheaper then the above options the only negatives is the time taken and also the rooms get more colder.

Perhaps the dehumidifier and devices like above are for more serious issues which effect the walls and structures in the house or flat but certainly worth a try on the suggestions above to see if it improves the conditions.

Thanks! Been looking for one for a while, used to be as well as code, hopefully will work :-)

Newbold, my house is 4 bed detached about 3000sq ft. And it had quite bad damp and condensation. I installed it myself and i didn't wire in the heater as it would have been expensive to run. My other house is 3 bed detached and my mums is a 3 bed semi and all suffered from mould, damp and condensation. The only downside though is that your upstairs can be cold at night as it is constantly blowing in fresh air from outside via the loft. I would never bother with a dehumidifier ever again. Do not hesitate a couple of weeks on full speed and then turn it down to suit.

Thanks, Fergee - appreciated. My daughter has a house with a bit of a damp problem (just certain parts of certain walls) and one solution (apart from maybe installing a French Drain) is to use a couple of decent dehumidifiers.

Your suggestion might be an even better alternative - except that their DIY skills (like mine) are absolutely non-existent. Presumably this is something that could be fitted fairly cheaply and easily by a tradesman?

To be honest you just have to cut a hole in the ceiling, and then wire the fan into a light fitting. Very simple really. But an electrician would charge for a couple of hours maximum.
