Basement High Humidity Problems
Do you notice that you never feel cool enough regardless of how low you turn your air conditioning? Does your skin feel sticky and sweaty even though the temperature of the home is below mid 70's? Does your home smell stale or musty? Have you noticed moisture on your windows? These are signs that your home or business has high humidity and you should have a professional out to test it. If tests show that humidity is above 60%, it is recommended that you install a dehumidifier. Often times high capacity basement dehumidifiers can change the humidity for the entire home.

Do I Need a Basement Dehumidifier
During the consultation, our skilled Project Manager will test the humidity throughout the entire building with a focus on the basement. Due to the stack effect, the way a building breathes, humidity issues can begin in the lowest level and work their way up. That means mold, mildew and nasty odors enter in the basement and are carried up through the building and out the roof. We will inspect for mold, make note of odors and attempt to find the source. If you have high humidity levels our Project Manager will recommend one of our Santa Fe professional high capacity dehumidifiers. Within that trusted lineup, we have some of the best basement dehumidifiers available on the market and these are not available in big box retail stores. Santa Fe dehumidifiers do not have trays that need emptied, are designed for specific environments and will not catch fire like the common dehumidifiers found in stores. Not only will these basement dehumidifiers reduce humidity levels, they also clean the air. This means that you will notice less odors, lower moisture, reduced allergies and asthma triggers as well as improved comfort. Once these basement dehumidifiers reduce the humidity, you will notice your utility bills will be lower because your air conditioning isn't running as much. If you are having interior waterproofing or crawl space encapsulation work done, your Project Manager is likely to suggest a basement dehumidifier to complete the healthy improvements.
When we install Santa Fe dehumidifiers in your home or business, they are protected by an amazing 6 year warranty. If you are ready to eliminate musty odors, save money on energy bills, control allergens and reduce humidity contact us today to schedule your Free consultation.
