The current version of the Meaco DD8L Dessicant Dehumidifier represents 10 years of development of the desiccant dehumidifier and the very best domestic dehumidification technology available today.


  • Absorption technology - no refrigerants or gases
  • Reduces or eliminates mould spores, condensation and other damp issues
  • 8 litres a day extraction, which is equivalent to a 16 or 20 litre compressor dehumidifier
  • Running costs from 5.02p/hour based on 15.2p/kWh
  • Up to 80% reduction in running costs
  • Unique intelligent Meaco control logic system
  • Small and lightweight
  • Very quiet in operation
  • Trusted Meaco brand name
  • Suitable for flats and up to a 5 bed house
  • Perfect for boats/cars/caravans/garages
  • Anti-bacterial filter
  • Great for drying washing
  • Current version perfected over 10 years of development, experience and customer feedback
  • 2 year warranty

Well suited to:

  • Environment where quiet and compactness is prioritized - very quiet in operation, option of a quiet fan speed regardless of selected relative humidity
  • Cold spaces (below 15°C) - extract water faster and produce more heat 
  • Boats or other moving areas - lack of castors ensure ultimate stability
  • Houses up to 5 bedrooms large
  • Practical homes - capable of drying clothes with Laundry mode, turning off independently when internal bucket is full and avoiding spills with splash proof cover for the aforementioned, as well as improving air quality with ionizing silver and anti-bacterial air filters important for anyone who suffers from allergies

So what is the difference between the 3 Meaco DD8L Models?

Meaco DD8L - As above but with Ioniser for air cleasing and killing mould spores

Meaco DD8L Zambezi - As above but with sophicated digital display controller, High performance Laundry mode and improved performance Ioniser


Environmental Benefits - Up to 80% less energy consumption


Industry Standard

Meaco DD8L


Either overcompensate by continuously running the fan or turning off when the relative humidity target is reached - 

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 it's target it starts dehumidifying again, if the relative humidity is ok it goes back to sleep again for another 30 minutes.


Uses unnecessary energy or causes potential misses in  catching increases in relative humidity, therefore allowing organic materials in the home to absorb the excess moisture, causing mould growth.

Saved energy and accurate dehumidification - in a well sealed home the fan will run for just 10 minutes an hour instead of 60, using just 1/6th of the power of other desiccant dehumidifiers. Higher wattage (when compared to compressor dehumidifiers) and lower water extraction time means lower energy use - when combined with excess energy returned to the room as heat the result is minimal waste
