The DD8L Junior is the same specification as the DD8L desiccant dehumidifier but without the ioniser and anti bacterial coating on the air filter, it is a powerful dryer, perfectly suited for use in colder areas such as garages, boats, caravans, cellars, holiday homes etc. This dehumidifier can extract up to 8 litres of water a day so is ideal for protecting large flats and up to 3 bedroom homes from the effects of damp, it also does a brilliant job as laundry dryer in the home.
The DD8L junior works well in all temperatures and unlike refrigerant machines does not lose performance at low temperatures.
Motor Boat Monthly Magazine November 2011 said “….a perfect on board dehumidifier. The DD8L would be preferable on a boat that suffers from damp due to its higher performance.”
Up to 80% less energy consumption
It has been standard within the industry for desiccant dehumidifiers to always run their fan continuously, regardless of the relative humidity. They do this so that they can react to rises in relative humidity and start to dry the air again. This provides a level of accurate dehumidification that is over kill for domestic applications. The alternative provided by most compressor dehumidifiers is for the dehumidifier to turn off when the relative humidity target is reached. This saves energy but does mean that the dehumidifier potentially misses increases in relative humidity and could allow organic materials in the home to absorb the excess moisture and mould to grow.
Energy saving and accurate dehumidification combined
The Meaco DD8L Junior provides the best possible solution. 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. In a well sealed home this will mean that the fan will run for just 10 minutes an hour instead of 60, using just 1/6th of the power of other desiccant dehumidifiers.
The above is the perfect balance between protecting your environment and keeping costs to a minimum.
