A Dehumidifier on Steroids:State-of-the-Art in Home Dehumidifiation

Dehumidifiers for basements and crawl spaces

Turn damp into dry with a specially designed appliance

What is HUMIDITY, anyway?

Humidity is the presence of water vapor in the air. But when we say “humidity,” we’re usually referring to “relative humidity” (RH), which is always expressed as a percentage. RH is the amount of water vapor in the air compared to the maximum amount of water vapor the air could hold at the same temperature. For example:

  • 90% (RH) is muggy and uncomfortable. The air is almost totally saturated, holding 90% of its maximum moisture content.
  • 50% (RH) means the air is only holding half its maximum amount of moisture. Mold and mildew have trouble growing at 50% RH.
  • 100% (RH) is when we experience condensation

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!

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.

A dehumidifier works like a glass of ice water on a muggy day

Place a glass of ice water outside on a humid day and watch what happens.

When hot, humid air comes in contact with the cold surface of the glass, water condenses to form droplets on the outside of the glass.

An electrically powered dehumidifier works just like that glass of ice water. A fan blows air over a metal coil that has been cooled by a refrigerant. The air gives up its moisture. Water droplets form on the cooling coils, then drip into a reservoir or drain line.
