Meaco MeacoDry ABC Dehumidifier (Black) 12L - Ultra Quiet Dehumidifier - Energy Efficient Electric Compressor Dehumidifier for home - Removes Condensation & Damp, prevents Mould
About this deal
The Meaco ABC is designed for smaller properties. It’s great for reducing humidity in 2-3 bedroom houses or flats, for example. While the MeacoDry ABC doesn’t include many advanced features, such as Smart functionality or a HEPA filter, it has everything you would expect from a Meaco refrigerant model at a mid-range price. Meaco also claims it’s their quietest dehumidifier yet.
If you have high humidity in the home and that causes problems with condensation or damp - or could cause such problems in the future, whether your home is brand new or a bit older - then a dehumidifier is a very sensible way to condense that moisture into water in a tank system and then, well, go and water your plants with it. Job done, see ya later excess humidity. The MeacoDry ABC Range dehumidifier is another excellent model from Meaco. It’s one of the quietest dehumidifiers we’ve reviewed– even on high fan mode – and is great at extracting water at room temperature. If you need a quiet dehumidifier for a small home or flat, it’s an excellent choice. That's not all the MeacoDry ABC 12L Dehumidifier can do though: it's got a Laundry mode which, when pressed, ups the extraction rate ante, in turn significantly helping to remove moisture from drying clothes. No, you won't get that fresh and soft outdoorsy feel from such a drying technique - but when it's raining outside and you've got sheets to dry it's an absolute life-saver, and less expensive than hammering out a heat-based dryer too.degrees Celsius– 6.18 litres per day at 80% relative humidity, 2.05 litres per day at 60% relative humidity
If noise is something you’re worried about when buying a dehumidifier, the ABC is an excellent option. A simple easy to use control panel – we made the most often used buttons larger and the least used buttons smaller. To take advantage of this great offer just simply add the warranty extension you want and we'll do the rest.The Arete One is at its noisiest in clothes drying mode, where you’re looking at sound levels of over 50dB and power consumption of over 208W. What’s more, it’s not the most effective dehumidifier I’ve seen for actually drying your clothes; even after six hours some garments were still slightly damp to the touch. In the past we found the Ebac 2650eworked a little better, albeit over a longer 8 hour boost cycle. However, different washing loads and humidity levels make like-for-like comparisons impossible, and the Arete One is still a decent option – you can always leave it on at a lower humidity target or turn on continuous operation if you want it to finish drying out your laundry. Automatic turn off – this setting prevents spillage when the water tank is full, protecting your home and property. Note: This review is of the 12L version of the MeacoDry ABC. There’s also a smaller 10L version that’s cheaper, but with a lower extraction rate. Aside from the size and extraction rate, both models have similar features. Design and Appearance
Basically, if you have a larger house with large rooms and a damp problem, then this is the kind of dehumidifier you should look at if you want to deal with the issue. But is it up there the best? Because we understand that you don’t want a huge, complicated and inflexible dehumidifier in your home, we’ve designed the MeacoDry ‘ABC’ range to fit right in with your lifestyle. The unit is easy to use, and you can set your target humidity in steps of 5%, giving you complete control. What’s more, we’ve added these great features:• Laundry mode – when you’re drying laundry indoors, your relative humidity will rise. On this setting, your dehumidifier will run at full speed for 6 hours to help dry your clothes and then automatically switch off to save energy.
In fact, we struggle to find any dehumidifier that’s quieter than the ABC. For comparison, the excellent Meaco DD8L Zambezi, which is a desiccant model, has a maximum noise output of 50dB. The closest refrigerant model is the Electriq CD20LE which has a maximum noise output of 42dB. The maximum power usage is 222W in warm and humid conditions. In a more realistic home environment, with a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and relative humidity of 60%, this drops to just 162W. This is on par with other Meaco Low Energy dehumidifiers, such as the 12L model we’ve previously reviewed.
