Which Dehumidifier is Right for Your Basement?

November 21, 2019 | Blog

basement dehumidifierYour basement could have a moisture problem, which increases your risk of having mold and mildew in your home. Too much humidity in your basement can also damage certain items you keep in storage there, so it’s important to find a way to lower this moisture. A basement dehumidifier can keep this part of your home less humid and more comfortable as long as you get the right kind.

Signs That You Need a Dehumidifier

Your basement will need a dehumidifier if you notice any mold or mildew growing down there. You might also have an unpleasant, musty smell in your basement if mold and mildew are around. Other signs of too much moisture in this part of your home include water spots and condensation on your basement windows.

Types of Dehumidifiers

The main kinds of dehumidifiers that are available include portable and whole-house. Portable dehumidifiers can be moved around your basement as needed. For example, you might have a certain area in your basement that gets more humid. With a portable dehumidifier, you can target this area specifically.

Whole-house dehumidifiers are designed to work with your HVAC system to keep your entire house less humid. While this can be beneficial for the main part of your home, it might not be as effective at lowering the humidity in your basement. An HVAC technician can help you determine if a whole-house dehumidifier is right for your home.

Dehumidifier Sizes and Capacity

The size of dehumidifier you’ll need will depend on certain factors, such as how humid your basement is and how large it is. You’ll need to choose a dehumidifier based on its capacity, which refers to how much humidity it removes in one day. Getting the wrong size dehumidifier, such as one that is too small, means it won’t be effective at lowering the humidity inside your basement.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
