crawl space dehumidifier

Do you dread going into your basement because it’s damp? Have you noticed mold on the walls or corners? Is there condensation on the wall or pipes? Have you looked into a basement dehumidifier?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you have a basement moisture problem. In particular, chances are good that your home will benefit from installing a basement dehumidifier.

Basement Dehumidifier – What is it, Exactly?

A basement dehumidifier removes the moisture and other airborne particles from the air. A good dehumidifier can remove mold spores and dust mite droppings, in addition to removing musty smells.

There are a few things you should look for when selecting a basement dehumidifier:

Desired Humidity Level

You should be able to set the desired humidity level on the dehumidifier.

Self-Draining Function

Make sure to always opt for one that’s self draining, otherwise you may have to empty the water collected by the dehumidifier at least once a day.

Energy Efficiency – Energy Star Rated

Always check the energy efficiency of the dehumidifier. Some models can remove a lot of moisture from the air, while using little energy.

Basement Dehumidifier – Your Health, Home, and Comfort…

Generally speaking, moisture creates the ideal environment for mold, mildew and dust mites. All of which are among the leading causes of allergy and asthma problems. In fact, the best way to eliminate these problems is to remove the extra moisture.

If you’re avoiding your basement because it’s damp, then you already understand the importance of comfort. Once your basement is dry, you can use it for storage or finish the space.

A finished basement is always a wise investment, since it increases the value of your home. Additionally, this provides you with more comfortable living space.
