Basement High Humidity Problems
Do you notice that you never feel cool enough, no matter 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? These are signs that your home has high humidity and it's time to have a professional test it. If tests show that humidity is above 60%, we recommend that you install a dehumidifier. Often times high capacity basement dehumidifiers can change the feel of an entire home.

Do I Need a Basement Dehumidifier?
During the consultation, our Project Manager will test the humidity throughout the entire building with a focus on the basement. Due to the stack effect, humidity issues can begin in the lowest level and work their way up. As a result, mold and nasty odors enter in the basement and carry up through the building. Because of this, 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. These high-end models are NOT available in big box retail stores! Santa Fe dehumidifiers work great for basement environments and will not catch fire like the common dehumidifiers. Not only will these basement dehumidifiers reduce humidity levels, but will 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 dehumidifiers reduce the humidity, you will notice your utility bills drop due to your air conditioning running less. For interior waterproofing or crawl space encapsulation work, we always suggest a basement dehumidifier to complete the healthy improvements.
When we install Santa Fe dehumidifiers in your home or business, they include 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.
