Controlling humidity is one of the most important steps you can take in protecting your home or business, ensuring your comfort, and safeguarding your family’s health. Santa Fe provides a full line of high-capacity, energy-efficient free standing dehumidifiers that are designed and manufactured for the ultimate in humidity control for basements, crawlspaces, and any other inside spaces that deserve the best in humidity control.
Classifying Your Crawl Space Or Basement:
Very Tightly Sealed - New homes that meet a recognized energy building standard such as Energy Star, LEED, Passive House, etc.
Moderately Sealed - Newer homes or remodeled homes that have some air sealing and foundations with some cracks and imperfections.
Loosely Sealed - Typically older homes with very minimal air sealing and foundations with several cracks and imperfections.
There are several factors that need to be considered when choosing a dehumidifier for your crawl space or basement. Most dehumidifier manufacturers recommend a certain number of pints per square footage. While this is one way of getting a better idea of the correct size for you, there are several things to consider in order 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.
