Just wondering if anybody has this unit running and if the power consumption re: monthly electric bill is objectionable?

Hello Flststhebest;
Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that people do read
these forums. I just had the system put in with the Sani Dry
dehumidifier, and its too early for me to tell the expense electrically. We had two pumps put in. And I can tell you, thank god. I am in southern NY, we have had 6-7 days of rain and more to come. We would have been under three feet of water by now in my basement. But its dry as a bone. I have to get the Sani hard wired so I can run it 24/7. Good luck.

I have a Sani Dry (http://www.basementsystems.com/dehumidifier/) in my basement, and it has been working for over four years and I have not seen a spike in my electric bill yet. I have my unit set on the auto/off side of the switch, this ensures that the unit works only when it needs to dehumidify. If you were to leave the unit in the "on" position, the unit would run constantly giving you air filtration and duhumidification (http://www.basementsystems.com/learning_center/dehumidification/humidity.php) .
Thank you.
