Product Overview

We are delighted to offer this unit with a free three year warranty - giving you an additional year’s peace of mind compared to the standard one year warranty.

The Meaco DD8L dehumidifier is small, light and quiet. It is exceptionally economical to run (using 80 per cent less energy than previous models) and a best seller from multi award winning UK-based manufacturer Meaco.

This dehumidifier will reduce or eliminate mould spores, condensation and other damp issues in your home. It is capable of extracting 8 litres of moisture a day from your home which is equivalent to a 16-20L compressor dehumidifier - helping to prevent damage and health issues caused by an excessively moist atmosphere.

It will also dry your laundry cost-effectively - and so is an ideal choice where space limits the purchase of a tumble drier. The Meaco DD8L is light enough to be carried to a clothes horse where it will offer a more economical solution than a tumble drier for drying laundry, even delicate items like lingerie and jumpers.

Many customers also report that the built-in ioniser helps make air feel refreshed and tingly - like the air on a mountain.

The unit is ideal for use in flats and houses with up to 4-5 bedrooms. Owners of boats, caravans, holiday homes and garages also love this unit because they appreciate it’s low running costs, portability, and fire safety-features.

As a dessicant dehumidifier, it is also suitable for use in conservatories where temperatures can drop overnight and during winter days. Dessicant dehumidifiers also warm the air, a great bonus if you live in a chilly house, or to save on heating bills.

Dessicant dehumidifiers are also valued for the consistency of their operation across all temperatures - so are ideal for very cold rooms or outbuildings.
The DD8L includes Meaco's advanced Control Logic - meaning that it turns itself off when the desired humidity is reached, and then continues to sample the air every 30 minutes. This way the unit will run for just 10 minutes per hour - saving energy and reducing your running costs.

Includes anti-bacterial filter and an ioniser which helps you keep the air cleaner, great for families that suffer with any allergies! 

The DD8L turns off when the internal bucket is full which is also made with a splash proof cover to ensure a mess-free journey to pour the water away.

The unit has a humidistat and also an integrated hose - meaning that it can either be plumed for continuous drainage or have the tank emptied manually.

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?
