In-garage dehumidifiers for car storage - brilliant also for cellars, offices, home, workshops, museums

To keep your garaged car in perfect condition you need to ensure that the air around it is dry – a cover will keep dust off and prevent scratches, and a dehumidifier sucks moisture from the air to help prevent rust. Used together, ensure the cover allows air to move around the car. Dehumidifiers can also be used inside a sealed Airchamber or Carcoon to lower humidity rapidily and maintain it at very low cost.

 DehumidifiersWe stock in-garage dehumidifiers suitable for single cars or collections of cars, including large double, triple and quadruple garages. Multiple machines can be used to work in larger spaces.

See a complete [ comparison table here ].

All are suitable for the UK and are specially selected by us for use in Garages. They incorporate automatic controls that constantly check the relative humidity and temperature and adjust the airflow to prevent mildew, condensation, damp and mould. You can seal the garage with Gap Stop aftermarket seals available from us - a draughty garage will just made the unit work harder for longer, but is still suitable for dehumidifier usage.

All our dehumidifiers are also suitable for domestic use inside your home - steamy bathrooms, laundry rooms, older damp houses and storage rooms such as cellars, for damp flats and holiday homes. We also supply dehumidifers for museums, country houses and theatres. In heated environments the compressor machines such as Meaco 10L and 20L are highly effective, but they are not suitable for garages etc.

Adsorption Dehumidifiers work by rotating a plate of desiccant crystals past a heating element which draws off the moisture. Refrigerant or Compressor-based machines draw in air to condense on a cold plate where it is drawn off. It sub-zero temperature this plate freezes, rendering these machines totally ineffective in garages etc. It is this kind of machine that is typically sold in DIY stores and is NOT suitable for unheated garages.

Adsorption machines are more effective at low British temperatures in unheated spaces. Our dehumidifers are suitable for other applications like homes, holiday cottages, boats, caravans, cellars, sheds, storage units and garages.

  • Please note we can ship dehumidifiers outside the UK by special arrangement.
  • FREE 25L water barrel for extra tank capacity for our customers - see last item in product table below.

The next generation of desiccant dehumidifiers has arrived...In response to market demand for new features, theMeaco DD8L has been developed, winning annual contests in magazines like Practical Boat Owner including Best Buy in Winter 2015.

  2. Quiet operation – only 39-48dBA
  3. Normal and Turbo modes for rapid drying
  4. Cold temperature optimised so will extract 8 litres per day whatever the temperature

  11. CFC free and environmentally friendly – its only output is warm air (10-12 degrees warmer than input air, so a useful & modest heater) and water
  12. Tank capacity 2 Litres with auto cut-off when full, and gravity fed continuous drain option
  13. Dimensions 351mm wide x 188mm deep x 500mm tall
  14. Weight 6.4 Kg – very light compared to hot gas units

The Meaco DD8L dehumidifier has everything you need for a stylish, quiet, high performance dehumidifier packed with the latest technology. DD8L is perfect for use in cold temperature unheated winter environments like garages, workshops, boats and caravans where at 15 degrees it will outperform a 20L machine.

This desiccant dehumidifier extracts moisture at a constant rate whatever the temperature. A small heating element dries out the rotor to provide continuous operation. The desiccant in the rotor DOES NOT deteriorate with time so the only maintenance needed is periodic cleaning of the intake air filter.

Auto restart after power interruption means you can leave it unattended long term. Continuous drain option using a hose with the machine makes it a great 'plug in and forget' machine.

The DD8L Junior is identical in every way except it loses the expensive Silver Nano filter and Ioniser which are of no benefit to inanimate objects, reducing price by £30. This is our recommended machine for garages, boats etc.

Meaco 10L and 20L- Modern Compressor Dehumidifiers
Perfect for <3 bed homes and flats / larger 5-bed family homes

Above: Meaco 10L domestic dehumidifier

These modern, electronically touch-pad controlled compressor dehumidifiers are quiet and efficient, and excellent value for money. Designed for use in heated environments, perfect for drying laundry for example or keeping on top of older, damper homes, extracting condensation very efficiently. They are easy to use and have low running costs.

How it works:

The excess water in the air around you that is the cause of the condensation/mould and any feeling of a damp chill that you might be suffering from, is drawn into the dehumidifier and passed over a cold coil which forces the excess moisture to condense.  The air is blown back into the room both drier and warmer.  The excess water is collected inside the dehumidifiers internal container.  When this is full the dehumidifier automatically turns off to prevent spillage.

How dehumidifiers work

Adsorbtion dehumidifiers

Adsorbtion dehumidifiers work like this:

  1. Adsorbtion dehumidifiers work like thisMoisture from the air is pushed by a fan over a desiccant carried on a rotor.
  2. Moist desiccant is carried around to a drying sector, where gentle heat drives the water off and into a reservoir.
  3. Dry desiccant moves around ready to take more water from the air.
  4. The water is stored in the integrated tank or taken away by the hose. With no chilled plate which can freeze, its perfect for unheated, unattended spaces like garages.

This technology works well at all temperatures. It has previously only been cost-effective for large commercial applications.

Refrigerant dehumidifiers
Refrigerant dehumidifiers make use of the tendency of water to settle as dew on a cold surface.
Air is passed over a refrigerating element, where moisture condenses and is carried away.
Low cost Refrigerant or compressor based dehumidifiers rely on drawing ambient air over the cold element which, in an unheated environment such as a garage or boat may take a long time to defrost the unit, which is inefficient, power hungry and results in less time actually removing mositure from the air. Inside a heated building or house this is much less of an issue, so our Meaco compressor units, the Meaco 10L and Meaco 20L, very stylish and effective indoors, in house, cottages and flats, do not need a hot gas defrost feature .

Cheap dehumidifiers
Cheap compressor dehumidifiers won't keep your garage dry and your car free from rust and mildew all year round.
This is because the refrigerating element can ice up as the ambient temperature falls. The unit becomes ineffective just at the time you need it most to keep your car dry. And ensure any unit you're considering has the capacity for your garage without having to work flat out all day. Low cost DIY store compressor dehumidifiers usually have fiddly knobs to set whereas our 'made for the job' units have more accurate, easier electronic controls, in-built automatic humidistat, continuous drain and will reset themselves upon power failure.
