Basements are prone to excess moisture since water can seep into the home through cracks in the foundation. While sealing up those cracks can prevent moisture from seeping into the house, excess moisture can still remain in the basement.
That remaining moisture can lead to poor indoor air quality throughout the house leaving you breathing in the stuffy and humid air lingering in your basement.
Humid air is prone to airborne viruses, dust, mold, mildew, and pests. Adding an
Aprilaire dehumidifier creates healthy air throughout and can reduce the number of viable viruses in the air to less than 1% in 2 days’ time when set to 50% RH.*
A whole-home dehumidifier can help you keep your home and basement in the optimal range of 30-60 percent relative humidity for a comfortable and dry home with easy-to-use interactive displays. By keeping the home’s air in this optimal range, you can remove musty smells and odors and save energy.
In fact, our basement dehumidifier was recently announced as ENERGY STAR Ⓡ Most Efficient 2021.
Additionally, each basement dehumidifier is designed and manufactured in the United States and comes equipped with a five-year warranty for added protection. Each unit is low maintenance and does not require you to empty any messy water trays.
