Dehumidifier excellence for smaller homes

Since the launch in 2021, our Arete® One 20L and Arete® One 25L models have been a major hit with customers and reviewers alike. Winning Which? Best Buy awards and a Quiet Mark award, Arete® is proving that when you listen to your customers, product excellence is the result. Quieter than ever, designed to fit beautifully into your home and with simple controls and a built-in air purifier, Arete® is the market leader in every way.

Two smaller units have now been added to the Arete® collection. These are perfect for dealing with damp, mould and condensation issues in flats, studio apartments, small houses or cottages, single rooms and offices or studies. Extracting more water from your environment which uses less electricity, Arete® works quickly and quietly, with simple-to-use controls. The tank has been designed to be emptied from either side – so it doesn’t matter whether you’re left or right handed, or where the unit is placed.

Designed for your life

It’s taken five years of design, feedback and development to build this outstanding two-in-one dehumidifier and air purifier. By talking directly to customers, we’ve worked on not just the mechanics of efficiently removing excess water from your home and improving the air quality – but also on the stylish design, ensuring it fits into your modern designed home. 

A good dehumidifier should fit seamlessly into your home or office. Quiet, easy to use and easy to move around your home, Arete® is designed to make your life simpler.

Two for the price of one

As we become more aware of the role air quality plays in our life, it’s becoming increasingly important for people to improve the air in their homes. Whether this is for general health, or to combat specific allergy problems, an air purifier is a must in many homes.

Instead of buying two units – a dehumidifier and an air purifier – Arete® solves both your problems in one stylish box. With a medical grade H13 HEPA filter integrated into the unit, you can be sure that Arete® is working hard to give you a healthy environment every day. Now with the Allergy Foundations of South Africa's (AFSA) Seal of Approval. 

Built to last

When you choose Arete®, you choose Meaco’s dedication to customer service. Our products are built to last and we have given the Arete® range an impressive 5-year warranty – the only brand in South Africa to offer that level of protection for a domestic dehumidifier. Our customer service agents are friendly and responsive, and we get great reviews for the way we help and support customers when they need it.

Great product

Great features are that you can fit a hose for continues draining. The are castor wheels provided which you can fit if you need them.The unit does not have to be restarted after a power failure but continues to work ,when the power comes back on, which is a fantastic feature .It is also relatively quiet.

Great product

Works well and I am so pleased that Escom’s load shedding does not turn it off .When the power comes on it just carries on where it left off.The fact that you can fit a draining hose to it makes it so easy to leave unattended.
