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

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