Powerful, Simple Humidity Control for Your Basement
Thursday, October 16th, 2014 by Thrasher
If there is high humidity and musty odors in your basement, it will affect your upstairs living area. The installation of a dehumidifier in your basement or crawl space will help give you dry, healthy air and greater comfort in your home.
Thrasher recommends installing the SaniDry(TM) Sedona, the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier and filtration system, without a bulky heat exchange core. The Sedona is small in size, yet powerful enough to keep up, ensuring a mold-free basement.
- Eliminates damp, musty odors by drying and filtering air
- Costs less to run than other dehumidifiers
- Filters mold spores, dust mite droppings, dust and other particles
- Set it and forget it - Sedona does the rest with automatic drainage and humidity sensing
Why You Need a Dehumidifier in Your Home
Even a basement with an effective waterproofing system can still develop moisture and mold problems and may feel damp. Concrete walls and floors continually absorb moisture from the soil and release it into the air in your basement, and store bought dehumidifiers simply aren't powerful enough to solve the problem.
Mold and mildew are musty smelling fungi that thrive in moist environments, like your basement. An effective humidity control system, like the SaniDry Sedona, will easily keep the relative humidity in your home below 55%, so mold won't stand a chance and dust mites will die off.
How the Sanidry(TM) Sedona Works
Whether a dehumidifier will keep up and ensure mold won't grow in all seasonal conditions depends on how much water it will take out of the air. This depends on capacity and air flow. The SaniDry Sedona has over a whopping 100 pints per day capacity and will move over 300 cubic feet of dry air per minute around your basement or crawl space. By drying the below-grade area of your home, the SaniDry Sedona will help make your whole house drier and healthier!
The SaniDry Sedona is built with a powerful blowing motor that circulates dry air throughout the space, aggressively drying out your basement or crawl space. Collected water can be drained into a sump pump pit, a section of your perimeter drain, or away via a condensate pump.
