Those who have houses with basements know how moldy and damp those places are and how humid the air can be due to the changes of temperature and the pipes that go through the basement. The air humidity problem in the basement should be fixed if you want to maintain a clean, healthy and nice house and the easiest way to do so is to use a basement dehumidifier. Features like timers and light indicators will enable the unit to operate safely and without requiring your constant presence, given that you don’t want to spend your time sitting in the basement. One of the dehumidifiers for basements presented below will surely handle the air humidity in your basement and will remove mold and dampness.
This dehumidifier can remove 70 pints of moisture in 24 hours from a large area up to 3,800 sq ft in size, which is one of its best features. Its container can hold up to 10.4 pints of water, but the continuous drainage option makes sure the device doesn’t get too full and it offers you peace of mind knowing that everything is safe. You can set the desired level of humidity that you want to obtain, start the unit and leave it in the basement. It will absorb moisture from the air until it reaches the selected level, then it will turn off until the level rises again, in order to save energy.
Also a 70-pint dehumidifier, this model is a great energy saver that offers excellent performance in ensuring a safe and comfortable living. It can handle areas as large as 2,500 sq ft, which is more than enough for a medium size basement and its large container can hold 12.7 pints of water when you are not using the continuous drainage. It includes an automatic restart, a shut-off, and a defrost feature so you can use it in cold basements during the winter. You can opt for two-speed levels and the best part is the air filter that removes bacteria from the air while reducing its humidity.
This model can handle smaller areas up to 1,000 sq ft in size and can only hold 50 pints of water, but it comes with an additional drain pump that allows you to place it anywhere and it will release the water out of the area even if it has to do it upwards. It doesn’t include an automatic start or shut-off, but it has a timer that allows you to set it to work for a certain amount of time before shutting down. It can also work in cold areas, meaning you can use it during the winter and in garages as well.
