For a healthier and easier life

Just switch Arete® on and let it do the work for you. We’ve designed this unit in the UK with the help of around 2000 customers, over a period of five years, so we know exactly what people are looking for and what’s most important to them. That’s why Arete® is super-quiet. It’s why we’ve made it easy to move around – with furniture-style feet so it fits in with your décor, and castors so you can roll it to a new location whenever you need to.

It’s why we’ve added a medical-grade H13 HEPA filter making this unit another Meaco product with the Allergy Foundations of South Africa’s (AFSA) Seal of Approval.  It’s why the water tank has lips on both sides so it doesn’t matter if you’re left-handed or right-handed – it’s always easy to empty the tank. It’s why it comes with a special adaptor in the lid so you can attach your garden hose to re-use the water – no need to buy another plastic hose from us. Working sustainably as well as intelligently.

Award-winning excellence in your home

Arete® is the Greek goddess of excellence. We took our inspiration from that name and have spent around five years designing and refining this collection so that it delivers a great experience every time you switch it on.

Designed in Britain using teams based in London, Cambridge and Guildford, Arete® is designed to blend perfectly into your home without losing any of the practical functionality – so it works brilliantly and it looks fantastic. Hidden in plain sight and working hard for a better home environment, you’ll soon wonder how you did without it. And that’s why we’ve added a 5-year parts and labour warranty. We are serious about looking after our customers and we want our products to last as long as possible in your home. So just call us if you need to – we are always here to help.
