Dehumidifiers

Whole-House Dehumidifier

Studies have shown that as much as 50 percent of the air in your home comes up from your basement or crawlspace. This air is often higher in moisture content and carries with it various allergens and musty odors. When conditions linger above 60 percent relative humidity for extended periods of time, mold, mildew, and bacteria growth is stimulated.

The American Lung Association, American Medical Association, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommend maintaining relative humidity levels in the 30 to 50 percent range. Ventilation and air conditioning alone cannot provide the protection offered by a high-capacity dehumidifier. Protecting your family and your biggest investment is worth the best.

Capacities for residential dehumidifiers are measured in pints of water removed per day at standard conditions (80°F and 60 percent RH) determined by the American Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM). However, most basements and crawlspaces are cooler than 80°F and therefore the water removal capacity of the standard residential unit will be diminished significantly.

Dehumidifiers are designed for these cooler applications to ensure that enough moisture is removed at the real-world temperature of your crawlspace or basement to help prevent musty odors and mildew.

The Value Proposition

An energy-efficient dehumidifier is a smart investment that pays for itself while eliminating musty odors, protecting homes, and reducing the risk of health issues associated with high moisture levels.

Energy Efficiency

Dehumidifiers can save homeowners up to $600 per year in energy costs. This is due to the unit’s innovative design and advanced technology, which are not found in cheaper mass-merchant dehumidifiers, resulting in two to three times more moisture removal per kilowatt of electricity.
