Having used Meaco for over 7years now, I can proudly and confidently state that if you are really after a quality brand and a great value for money; please look no further as Meaco Dehumidifiers are the industry number one. I bought the Meaco Arete 25L from Meaco's website for £299.99 and switched it on after 4hours after having it kept upright outside its box. The device is very quiet compared to the many others (mainly DeLonghi) we tried before Meaco. If you want ideal humidity level for a healthy and perfect air, keep it running at 40-45% with a variance of +/-3% where the hygrometer/sensors will do a sterling job and the best of all is the energy consumption. I have a smart meter and it tracks my energy usage, I have to confess that with the dehumidifier plugged in for 24/7, the energy consumption at 40% has been 50-60pence a day for the last one week of use.

Its worth the weight.
Ordered an aircon just in time by the looks of things. (Sold out by the next day)
Ordered on sunday 17th july. Purley because they offered next day delivery and other places were 3 day delivery so had to count the monday as day 1 so should of arrived on the Tuesday.
Ended up emailing them first thing on the Tuesday to ask what my tracking number was to see what time my air con would arrive. Got a reply within 10 mins. Kinda avoided my question and just said you'll get an email and text once order has been shipped.
So basically telling me it hasn't been dispatched.(very annoyed)
I then get a automated email saying my order is delayed and they hope to ship between 24-48 hours. Very disappointing email to get as by this point ive melted !
Gave them the benefit of the doubt and just waited. Got to thursday still no email or aircon. Sent another email asking what the hell was going on. Remember i only ordered from meaco for the next day delivery!
She then sends me my shipping and said its been dispatched!
I was genuinely worried they over sold and didnt even have a ac unit to send me!
So it arrived on the friday morning.
Well heat wave is over for now but now that its here im not so mad as its a really good unit and even though heat wave has ended our bedroom is still stuffy so i have it on and im so pleased with it and i now have it ready for Augusts heatwave!
Customer service needs a bit of improvement they definitely beat around the bush giving you answers to your questions. Not sure why they didn't let me know on the monday that there is a big backlog of orders. (Was told the day it was meant to arrive)
Also had no info from parcel force (no text or email) i knew it was coming on friday and what time because as soon as i was sent my tracking info i stalked parcel forces website. So that needs to be addressed as if it wasn't for me stalking the tracking i wouldn't have known what day or time it was coming.
And id have been PISSED if i missed that delivery.
So all in all next day delivery was non existent and took 5 working days to arrive.
