When it comes to the 10l Arete One, we found it was still pretty heavy, so despite its wheels we wouldn't want to move it around regularly. The pressure-sensitive keys, clear indicators and digital display make it easy to switch between modes and keep an eye on the current humidity levels. The Arete One is specified to top out at 40dB(A) and consume around 250W, although – as we’ll see later – measured consumption is actually much lower. Maintaining and cleaning the various parts of the MeacoDry Arete One has been made pretty easy, and most people will never need to replace the HEPA filter positioned on the back of the device.Setting this dehumidifier up was very easy, we took it out of the box, removed the packaging and plugged it in. The way the dehumidifiers are tested are in a sealed chamber using calibrated microphones at 1m on all four sides. The easy to use tank has a cover and carry handle with the option to pour the water away from both the left and right side, making life easy.
Once it hits the desired humidity, the dehumidifier shuts off altogether so there's no wasted energy (or expense). When we discovered we could also use the dehumidifier to dry clothes, we got the Meaco Arete One 25l. Of course, with the cost of living and climate crisis, it's important to take into account the energy usage of any home appliance, and you'll likely be wondering how much a dehumidifier costs to run. If washing, it's important to make sure that the filter is completely dry before replacing the HEPA filter and putting the dust filter back. You can read more detail in my Pro Breeze 20L Premium Dehumidifier with Special Laundry Mode review.We tested the 20L model of the MeacoDry Arete One in our home, and you can read what we thought below. In the laboratory we are measuring sound power levels and at home you will be measuring sound pressure levels, two different parameters that cannot be compared like for like. During testing the MeacoDry Arete One 20L Dehumidifier proved it was more than up to the task of tackling everyday humidity at home, and we were impressed with how quickly it could get moisture levels down to the desired level.

Note that you don't have to use a filter if you'd prefer not to, as there is also a washable dust filter in the machine. But when you need serious drying power, you need a dehumidifier that’s up to the job – and here the Arete One has you covered.Most people will opt for manual emptying, however, and for them, there are two ways to know when it's time to empty the tank.
This filter can be replaced with either another H13 HEPA filter or an active charcoal filter, the choice is up to you!Thankfully, the Arete has a convenient handle on top that helps not only to remove it from the box but also - with the help of castors - subsequently move it around. I don’t have the MeacoDry ABC or Inventor EVA II Pro 20L to hand to make direct comparisons but the Arete One is right up there with them in terms of performance and is either competitive or slightly better on noise and power consumption. If you want to control the humidity in your home without distraction then the Arete range is the market leader for exceptional humidity extraction at a super quiet operating volume. At this point, the unit will beep and a red light will be displayed to alert you that the tank needs emptying.
