Two for the price of one

It’s becoming increasingly important for people to improve the quality of 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 – especially those where there are mould or damp problems. Instead of buying two units – a dehumidifier and an air purifier – Arete® solves both your problems in one stylish box. With a medical grade HEPA filter integrated into the unit, you can be sure that Arete® is working hard to give you a healthy environment every day. A new dawn for dehumidifiers.

Making Arete part of your home

Feedback from customers showed that dehumidifiers are part of the furniture. So it matters what it looks like and that it can stay out of your way. Arete® is not only stylishly designed, it’s also very practical. It sits flush to the wall and we have added feet to make it look more furniture-like, and hidden the castors away.

Shhhhhh … the quietest dehumidifier

For many people, the dehumidifier sits near the bedroom, so keeping the noise down is obviously important. Following the success of Meaco's very quiet ABC range, they worked to see if they could make the Arete® any quieter without losing any other features. Over 18 months, Meaco trialed and tested various options in order to come up with the quietest dehumidifier units they have ever made. In fact, at 40dB, Arete® is twice as quiet as the industry standard.

Simplicity is key

Arete’s control panel is simple to use and gives you complete control. With large buttons for the most-used functions, you can control the unit with a single touch of a single button – particularly for Smart Humidity Control and Smart Laundry. It’s uncomplicated and efficient – exactly what you need.

Sleep easy with Night Mode

Meaco learned that lots of units have a Night Mode. But that often comes with an annoying light and noises when you press buttons. Meaco's Night Mode is different. Every light turns off, the fan speed changes to the quietest low mode and there are no random noises. And, with a child lock function, there’s no worry about the Night Mode – or any mode – being accidentally turned off. Arete’s Night Mode is not just for night-time but anytime when you want the dehumidifier to be as quiet as possible.

What about continuous drainage?

In order to reduce impact on the environment, Meaco stopped including free drainage hoses with our dehumidifiers several years ago. Instead, Arete has a hose adaptor which allows you to hook up and standard garden hose to the unit for continuous drainage. This helps us all to reduce plastic waste and makes life easier for you...

Cleaning the air in your home

Meaco wanted Arete® to be useful all year round. So every Arete® One dehumidifier includes a H13 HEPA filter, a 75% bigger and better quality HEPA filter. This is a medical-grade filter that cleans the air during dehumidification, and can also be used as a stand-alone purifier during the warmer months of the year.
