In crawlspaces and basements, excess water can cause many problems. These areas are sometimes poorly ventilated and as a result, moisture can get in. Wood + heat + moisture = major mold problems. If not treated properly, the humidity inside these areas can compromise the structural integrity of the entire house. A home should stay at current acceptable levels of relative humidity, between 30%-50%; otherwise mold can occur. To avoid moisture and mold damage in your home, a dehumidifier designed for use in crawl spaces and basements is something to consider.
The Santa Fe Compact 2 dehumidifier has an integrated vertical OR horizontal discharge design to offer flexibility even in exceptionally tight spaces. It’s engineered for crawlspaces, and the temperature and airflow issues that they present. This dehumidifier has a two stage Air Filtration system; a pre-filter (which only has to be replaced every 2-3 years) and a MERV-8 filter. The MERV-8 filter is a superior level air filtration that keeps the dehumidifier working at peak efficiency for longer than other devices. This filter can trap particles as small as 1 micron, and only needs to be replaced every 3-6 months.
The Santa Fe Compact 2 dehumidifier helps prevent condensation in basements and crawlspaces. The condensate runs out of a gravity-fed drain port by a hose, and can be drained into a sink or basin. It also provides optimal airflow, which helps prevent spot condensate. With additional features such as auto-restart (for after power outages), Energy Star efficiency, and American-made, the Santa Fe Compact 2 can’t be beat.
