Dehumidification for Basements & Crawl Spaces

Turn damp and musty into dry and healthy with a powerful dehumidifier

Why a SaniDry is better

Check out these important benefits:

  • Jumbo-size cooling coils provide high drying capacity (100 pint per day) and low energy use.
  • Easily set humidity levels from 26% - 90%.
  • Designed specifically for challenging low-temperature, high humidity basement conditions.
  • ENERGY STAR® rated for efficient operation.
  • No reservoir to empty; designed for continuous operation.
  • Two-stage air filtration will capture mold spores, dust mite debris and particulate pollutants.

At Basement Systems we not only focus on getting the water out, but we also address making your basement or crawl space dry and comfortable – just like your upstairs.

When there's excess humidity in your home, you can see, feel and smell it. High humidity can cause several problems:

  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Dust mite growth
  • Musty smells
  • Condensation on windows
  • Insect infestation
  • Sticky feeling in the summer and cold, clammy feeling in the winter
  • Wood rot

Mold, dust mites and other pollutants can worsen asthma and allergies. Mold can also damage wood floors, trim, furniture and other building materials.

The right dehumidifier can help

SaniDry Sedona ducted dehumidifier

The SaniDry Sedona can be ducted, so it doesn't have to be located in the space you are drying.

By installing the right dehumidifier in your basement or crawl space, you can easily control the humidity to maintain a comfortable, healthy environment in your home. A dehumidifier will remove the right amount of moisture from your air to discourage mold and dust mites, without making the air too dry.

SaniDry™ dehumidifiers from Basement Systems are designed specifically to handle tough basement and crawl space conditions efficiently and effectively. Unlike most standard dehumidifiers, both the SaniDry Sedona and the SaniDry XP are ENERGY STAR certified. In fact, our SaniDry Sedona model is most efficient dehumidifier in the world without a big, bulky heat exchange core. A SaniDry dehumidifier will keep your home below 55% Relative Humidity and eliminate damp, musty odors by drying and filtering the air.

Benefits of installing a dehumidifier in your home

SaniDry™ XP Dehumidifier

SaniDry XP model dehumidifier.

  • Stop mold and mildew.
    Mold and mildew can grow when relative humidity levels go above 50%. By drying out basement and crawl space areas with a dehumidifier, you can create a drier environment that’s “hostile” to mold and mildew.
  • Eliminate musty odors.
    Getting rid of mold and mildew will do away with the bad smells that come into your living space from your basement.
  • Protect family health.
    Mold reproduces by putting microscopic spores into the air. These airborne organisms trigger allergic reactions and respiratory ailments in many individuals. Effective dehumidifying in basement and crawl space areas can put an end to this serious form of indoor air pollution.
  • Bring the basement up to “above-grade” standards.
    If your basement is finished or you're planning on finishing part of your basement to expand your home’s living space, you’ll want this new living area to be just as comfortable as any room upstairs. Effective dehumidification is the answer.

Basement dehumidifier FAQ

Click on the frequently asked questions below to learn more about basement dehumidifiers.

My basement has a waterproofing system and it stays dry. Do I still need a dehumidifier?

Many “dry” basements still need dehumidification because concrete is a porous material; it will absorb moisture from the soil and release that moisture to the interior of a basement or crawl space. If the soil around your house tends to be wet, the amount of moisture that diffuses into the basement may cause excessive humidity. When relative humidity in a basement or crawl space climbs above 60%, mold is likely to take hold.

Why can’t I use a standard dehumidifier to control humidity in a basement or crawl space?

You can use a low-cost dehumidifier, but it’s certain to cause problems. For starters, it will have much longer run times than a Basement Systems SaniDry™ dehumidifier, because of its undersized cooling coils. Energy consumption will be high, dehumidification capacity will be low, which means premature burnout is likely. Inexpensive consumer-grade dehumidifiers are designed to function at higher “upstairs” temperatures, not in the lower temperature range found in basements and crawl spaces. Another feature that makes SaniDry™ dehumidifiers better for basements is the dual air filter that traps mold spores, dust mite debris and other particulate pollutants.

What are the maintenance requirements for a basement dehumidifier?

Look for key features that make the dehumidifier easy to operate and maintain. For example, SaniDry™ dehumidifiers have easy-to-use digital controls. You set the target humidity level, and the SaniDry™ will operate automatically to maintain that level. You never have to empty a water reservoir with the SaniDry™ because it can drain into a sump pump or utilize a condensate pump for automatic drainage.
