Dehumidifiers for basements and crawl spaces

Turn damp into dry with a specially designed appliance

SaniDry® dehumidifiers are simply better!

Check out these important benefits:

  • Jumbo-size cooling coils provide high drying capacity (109 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 a basement dry and comfortable – just like your upstairs.

We install our own dehumidifiers that are big enough and powerful enough to do the job!

Damp basement air harms property and people

It’s important to control basement humidity because unchecked dampness can lead to mold growth and dust mites in your basement. Mold can damage and destroy many materials, while also causing serious health problems. Dust mites are microscopic insects that don’t damage materials, but ingesting their feces and body parts can have harmful health effects.

Control basement humidity and air quality with SaniDry™ dehumidifiers

The good news is that with the right dehumidifier, you can easily bring your basement up to “above-grade” standards in terms of air quality and humidity levels. To discourage mold and dust mites, it’s best to keep basement humidity below 60%.

SaniDry™ XP Dehumidifier

SaniDry™ XP model for basements and SaniDry™ CX model for crawl spaces (below).

SaniDry™ CX Dehumidifier

SaniDry™ dehumidifiers from Basement Systems have been designed from scratch to handle tough basement and crawl space conditions reliably and efficiently. Unlike standard, suitcase-size dehumidifiers designed to for room-sized dehumidification tasks, SaniDry™ models have the capacity to dehumidify a 2500 sq. ft. basement or crawl space. And thanks to a dual-stage air filtration system, SaniDry™ dehumidifiers can also clean the air by removing mold spores, dust mite debris and other particulate matter.

Benefits of installing a basement or crawl space 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 dehumidification 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.
SaniDry™ dehumidifier and 35-pint dehumidifier

Out with the old, in with the new. The SaniDry™ (right) takes up to 100 pints of water per day out of your basement air, while using the same energy as a 40-pint dehumidifier (left).

Don't ask a lightweight dehumidifier to do a heavyweight's job

The compact, suitcase-size dehumidifiers that are available from appliance dealers aren’t designed for the conditions you encounter in a basement or crawl space.

In these below-grade spaces, temperatures and humidity levels are much more extreme than in an upstairs room.

Based on years of experience in drying out basements and crawl spaces, Basement Systems has developed super-duty SaniDry™ dehumidifiers with special features not found on standard models.

For example, SaniDry™ dehumidifiers have jumbo-sized cooling coils that can handle the higher air volume and lower temperature requirements in basement and crawl space areas. Electronic controls and a particulate filter are two other unique features.

These ENERGY STAR®-rated dehumidifiers are designed to deliver years of economical, trouble-free performance.

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.
