Product Overview

The new 20 Litre Low Energy dehumidifier from UK market leaders, Meaco, combines good looks, powerful dehumidifing - and exceptionally low running costs. No wonder it’s part of Meaco’s Platinum Range! HEPA Filter available from here

The Meaco 20L Platinum is suitable for homes up to 5 beds and its smaller brother the Meaco 12L Platinum is suitable for homes up to 3 beds and uses even less energy (165W).

What really sets this dehumidifier apart is it’s energy efficiency. Here at, the question our technical experts are most often asked is: “how much will it cost to run my dehumidifier?”. In fact the Meaco 20 Litre Low Energy unit uses only 219 Watts per hour - easily the lowest energy consumption in it’s class. 

In addition to its robust design, this unit uses a humidistat with intelligent logic to optimise performance still further. Traditional dehumidifiers often keep the fan running permanently - in contrast, Meaco’s intelligent humidistat checks the humidity levels every 30 minutes and “sleeps” in between - thus saving even more energy costs.

Every component in the Platinum Range has been re-designed from the ground up to keep running costs as low as possible. This means that you can use the power of a dehumidifier to dry laundry, protect your home from mould, condensation and damp - without worrying about energy bills or compromising on dehumifidification performance. The designers at Meaco calculate that their Platinum Range products will save you “hundreds of pounds” over the lifetime of your purchase.

We are delighted to offer this unit with a free three year guarantee - giving you an additional year’s peace of mind compared to the standard one year warranty. We are the only UK retailer to offer this valuable extra cover - we also offer a Price Match Guarantee - meaning you can’t buy cheaper on the Web.

The 20 Litre Low Energy dehumidifier (Meaco 20LE) is ideal for a large home (up to five bedrooms), small offices, garages or workshop. It is also the ideal choice for very damp smaller spaces that require high levels of extraction.It is also ideal if you, or anyone in your family, suffers from allergies as the Meaco 20 Litres Low Energy dehumidifier also uses HEPA filters (product code: MEACLA20) to protect your home and family from dust mites, smoke and other particulates that aggravate asthma, allergies and dermatitis.

A compressor dehumidifier, it will easily extract up to 20 litres of moisture every day and can be plumbed in permanently, or emptied using the large integral six litre tank. An intuitive digital display makes it easy to enter the desired humidity of your room, and a convenient timer means that you can set the dehumidifier to work even when there’s no-one at home.

When in “Laundry Mode” an automatic louvre directs the drying power across the garments to produce a gentle, even drying motion that is suitable for even the most delicate laundry and baby clothes. A child lock and automatic cut-out when the tank is full complete the safety features.

The design is strong and contemporary and includes integral carrying handles so that you can move the Meaco 20LE around your home easily. Alternatively, you can glide the dehumidifier from place-to-place on its smooth castors.

Frequently Asked Questions

What size dehumidifier do I need?

This will depend on the space, condition, and application. Smaller rooms require an 8 – 10L dehumidifier, whereas a whole house would require a 25-30L one. Specific damp problems or laundry drying may also increase the size of the dehumidifier. We go into more detail in the article What Size Dehumidifier do I Need.

What is a dehumidifier size?

When we talk about dehumidifier’s size, we mean the extraction rate. This is the amount of water in litres it can dehumidify within 24 hours. It’s important to note that we don’t mean the tank capacity. Dehumidifier tanks tend to be between 2-6L and would need emptying during the day. Most dehumidifiers can provide continuous drainage through a hose into a drain.

Can you use a dehumidifier as a clothes dryer?

Yes, many units have a laundry mode, which is specifically used for drying clothes. Using a dehumidifier to dry your laundry can save you a lot of money in the long run. Read our Dehumidifier vs Tumble Dryer article to see how getting a dehumidifier can save you up to £150 a year! Or shop all dehumidifiers with the laundry mode here.

Can a dehumidifier purify the air?

Yes, some dehumidifiers can be used as an air purifier. We have a range of dehumidifier with HEPA and dust filters. Always make sure to check the product description or user manual to see which modes your dehumidifier has.

What is relative humidity?

Relative humidity is a percentage of water vapor in the air compared to the maximum it can hold. So for example, if the relative humidity is 50%, that means currently the air contains half the amount of water vapor it can hold. The higher the humidity is, the warmer you’ll feel and your home will be more prone to mould. The lower the humidity is, the dryer the air will be.

What is the ideal humidity for my home?

For the UK, it is recommended to keep our home’s humidity between 50% - 30%. Any lower the air will be excessively dry causing dry skin, throat, and nose. Any higher, the air will be excessively moist which can cause damp and mould damage.

My dehumidifier unit is blowing out warm air, is this normal?

Yes, your dehumidifier can be blowing out warm air. This is due to the process of dehumidifying and is completely normal.

How much does a dehumidifier cost to run?

This is going to differ unit to unit. For example this Devola 12l compressor dehumidifier will cost you around 5p per hour, or this Meaco 25l dehumidifier around 7p per hour (these prices are based on the April 2024 price cap).

I’m still unsure on which dehumidifier to get, can you help me decide?
