12L – Ultra Quiet Dehumidifier – Energy Efficient Electric Compressor Dehumidifier

The Meaco ABC Range 12L dehumidifier offers several features that set it apart as an industry leader.


There are several features offered by the Meaco 12L ABC not present in other 12L dehumidifiers. It offers a variety of useful settings and features which we will look at below.

Auto Shut-off

The feature reduces spills when the tank reaches full capacity. Also, the tank is easy to empty, with an optional continuous drainage outlet for those who wish to use it.

Auto-off timer

The automatic off-timer allows you to decide how long you want the dehumidifier to run for to ensure you conserve energy.

Auto defrost

Compressor dehumidifiers operate at a considerably lower temperature than the room they are operating in. This causes compressor dehumidifiers to become frozen at low temperatures. This feature ensures that this doesn’t happen as it will automatically defrost.

Laundry mode

The machine can operate in laundry mode for up to six hours at full capacity. You can use it to dry laundry on a nearby clothes horse overnight or when you’re away from home. Customers like that there’s no need to use a radiator to dry damp laundry. They also like that the clothes dry more evenly and smell fresher.  A dehumidifier is a fantastic alternative to the tumble dryer.


The control settings show the humidity levels in each room, with options to adjust as needed. The humidistat allows the dehumidifier to shut off whenever it reaches the desired humidity level, periodically tests the air, and automatically restarts when the humidity rises back above the target threshhold. There’s a child lock feature also that prevents tampering by small children. It ensures an additional layer of safety in the house. 

Quiet Operation

The Quiet Mark technology allows the dehumidifier to run on a low fan speed for a quieter environment. It blends in with everyday household noise, with no disruptions or vibrations. The Meaco 12L is one of the questest dehumidifiers on the market. We did a study on quiet dehumidifiers and found that the Meaco 12L was the best of the bunch.


The machine is lightweight and compact and easy to move around. It is useful in bedrooms, utility/laundry, conservatories, basements, hallways, bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, and garden rooms.

Both dehumidifiers are leaders in the industry and share excellent customer reviews. Further to this, Meaco 12L operates on significantly less wattage than the Pro Breeze 12L, so you reap substantial savings on overall energy costs. Both machines run neck and neck in similar features, the Pro Breeze takes the cake for portability. It has four wheels that make it more comfortable to maneuver from place to place. Although portable, the MeacoDry dehumidifier is heavier and has no wheels.

The MeacoDry boasts of excellent water-extracting ability and overall high performance. This performance allows it to hold its own easily among some of the top machines on the market. In comparing it to the Pro Breeze, the MeacoDry offers several attractive colours that compliment any décor. Besides colour customisation, the water tank capacity on the MeacoDry is slignificantly larger than the Pro Breeze.  

The ProBreeze offers a few additional features that the MeacoDry does not provide. The design and technology of the MeacoDry consist of beautifully contoured edges that fit well in smaller spaces. Overall, we think the MeacoDry stands out for its low consumption energy savings and is an excellent all-around dehumidifier. Considering these factors, the Meaco 12L is the better purchase as it will be significantly cheaper to run and save you money long term.
