Digital control. A SaniDry® basement dehumidifier and air-cleaning system includes a built-in humidistat that allows you to set a target humidity level for the appliance to achieve.
Humidity refers to the amount of moisture that's contained in the air. Whenever we talk about "humidity," we usually mean "relative humidity" - the amount of moisture the air contains compared to the maximum amount the air could hold at a specific temperature.
Dehumidification tends to be more important than humidification in most homes. That's because our daily indoor activities (showering, washing clothes, cooking, watering indoor plants, etc.) tend to increase indoor humidity.
There's usually more of a problem with excess humidity that causes mold and mildew. Basements and crawl spaces are common target areas for dehumidification. Even when these spaces seem dry, soil moisture can continually permeate through the foundation and floor slab if the ground outside is wet. When moist air condenses on cooler surfaces in a basement or crawl space, wetness accumulates and creates ideal living conditions for mold, mildew and dust mites.
Two ways to combat excess humidity problems are to air-seal crawl spaces and basements, and to run a dehumidifier designed to work well in these areas. Learn about dehumidification and solutions that will keep your basement, crawl space, and other areas of your home dry and healthy.
