Condensation and high humidity problems can be quite a pest inside one’s home and this in turn can lead to moisture damage, mould and mildew.

The simple answer to preventing this is to invest in a dehumidifier, but how else can a dehumidifier help you inside your home?

1.   They reduce airborne moisture
A dehumidifier reduces the moisture in the air and collects it in a tank. Simply empty the tank when it’s full and the moisture is gone forever. 

2.   Helps clothes dry & extends food life cycle
By reducing the humidity in your home, it actually helps clothes to dry faster and foods such as bread to last longer. This is perfect for those cold and rainy days preventing you from drying your clothes outside or having to get up early to pack school lunches only to find that the bread has gone mouldy or stale. 

3.   Reduces Rust and Corrosion
Moisture in the air is what leads to rust and corrosion. A dehumidifier fights this and will help to keep your metal goods, such as tools, computers and even furniture rust free. This means lower repair costs and less time cleaning up rust on your beloved items.

4.   Reduces Dust
If you’re like us and you hate dust, a dehumidifier is perfect for you. It’ll reduce the levels of dust floating around your home, giving you more free time to sit back and relax, rather than spend countless hours hoovering.

5.   Cost & energy efficient
Our range of dehumidifiers is extremely energy and cost efficient. The Meaco 12L Low Energy could cost as little as 42c per hour to run. That means it would cost a mere R10.08 (based on R1.46 per kW per hour) to run for a whole day. Combine this with the fact that the Platinum Range Dehumidifiers will turn itself off automatically once it detects low levels of moisture.
