About this deal

Overall, the Meaco Arete 20L is more sleek and attractive than most dehumidifiers, including previous models from the same brand. This is a useful feature that cheaper dehumidifiers tend not to have, and gives peace of mind that your home's flooring isn't going to be damaged by any overspill. Of course, it’s also quite expensive and for smaller rooms and spaces you can save some cash with a more compact 10-12L dehumidifier.

It sits flush to the wall and we have added feet to make it look more furniture-like, and hidden the castors away. Meaco has cleverly designed it so that it pulls air in from the back then out through the top, but with enough space behind that you can place the unit unobtrusively against a wall and it’ll still dehumidify effectively. Set a target humidity for complete control over your home air quality and even enable the smart laundry mode to ramp up the unit to dry your clothes quicker. This filter can be replaced with either another H13 HEPA filter or an active charcoal filter, the choice is up to you!

If you want to always have cleaner, fresher air in your home this filter will have to be replaced roughly every 3 months. This powerful 20L dehumidifier made fast work of drying wet washing in my tests, although, it's likely its increased extraction rate helped it in this regard.

For the 20L model this is 38 and 40dB on the two fan speeds and for the 25L model this is 40 and 42dB. A workaround for that is to simply set the Smart Humidity Mode to 40% and then dial it back up to 55%, or whatever setting you prefer, once the laundry is dry. She tested it mostly in the spare bedroom while drying laundry, noting how effective it was at drying washing and reducing moisture, mould, musty smells and humidity levels.

Meanwhile, a Smart Laundry mode switches the target down to 35%rh and ramps up the fan speed in an effort to dry a rack of clothes. Note that the 'L' here refers to how many litres of water the machines can remove from the air each day, at 30C and 80% relative humidity. Despite our best efforts, occasionally there will be extraordinary circumstances which prevent us from turning up on time with your goods. Note that you don't have to use a filter if you'd prefer not to, as there is also a washable dust filter in the machine.
