How to Choose

There are several factors that need to be considered when choosing a dehumidifier. Most dehumidifier manufacturers recommend a certain number of pints per square footage for your crawl space or basement. While this is one way of getting a better idea of the correct size for you, there are several things to consider to ensure you are purchasing the correct dehumidifier for your specific needs.


Crawl spaces are susceptible to moisture intrusion and excessive relative humidity by virtue of their design – a hole in the ground surrounded by soil. Ground moisture is a significant source of dampness and humidity under and around the foundation of the house, even without standing water. Another major source of moisture in crawl spaces is from infiltration. Outside moisture in the air comes through doors, windows, cracks, and other penetrations and imperfections. Experts say about 95% of the moisture entering a building enters through air infiltration. No crawl space is the same and because of this, the size of dehumidifier you need may be different than the size your neighbor needs.


The sizing guide in the Product Comparison Chart goes beyond square footage and cubic feet to help you identify the best-sized dehumidifier for your home. The first step is to classify your crawl space or basement based on air infiltration and the condition of your foundation. Once you have done this you can visit the Product Comparison Chart to see what Santa Fe Dehumidifier is best for your home.


Classifying Your Crawl Space or Basements
