Dehumidification is often part of an overall strategy to improve a home's energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and durability. Removing moisture from "damp" air in a basement or crawl space can help insulation function more effectively while also helping to prevent mold, wood rot, and metal corrosion.
A dehumidifier works according to the principle that air's ability to hold moisture (humidity) diminishes as air temperature drops. This principle explains why an ice-cold glass of water "sweats" moisture on a hot day.
In a dehumidifier, a fan blows humid air across a metal coil assembly that is filled with cold refrigerant –the same compound that is used in air conditioners and refrigerators. When the air meets the cold coil surface, water condenses out of the air and drips off the coils onto a reservoir that's built into the dehumidifier.

Like refrigerators and air conditioning units, some dehumidifiers are better than others. Most of the standard models available through appliance dealers don't have the capacity or durability for reliable long-term performance in basements and crawl spaces. Fortunately, Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver has exclusive access to SaniDry™ dehumidifiers that easily outperform other models, and are specifically designed to handle the high-moisture, lower-temperature environment of basements and crawl spaces.
Clear the air on dehumidification. Unlike the light-duty dehumidifiers available at many appliance outlets, the SaniDry™ XP Basement Air System is designed to handle more demanding basement and crawl space conditions. A much larger coil is just one of the important differences.
The SaniDry™ XP Basement Air System can dry a 2500sq. ft. basement with an 8-ft. ceiling up to 275% more efficiently than similarly sized models. The XP has features that engineers admire and homeowners appreciate and is an ENERGY STAR® Rated product.
The SaniDry™ Sedona is a powerful dehumidifier that is self-draining and able to remove 109 pints of water per day, covering 2,200 sq. ft. in typical conditions.
If you have a crawl space with moisture problems, Josh Lowe's Dr. Energy Saver has access to sealing and waterproofing products and a low-profile version of the SaniDry™ dehumidifier called the Sedona that's just as impressive as the SaniDry™ XP but is designed to fit in tighter spaces.
