Basement Dehumidifiers

Keep the humidity in your home at a healthy level!

One of the most common struggles for homeowners is persistent moisture in the basement. If left unchecked, moisture levels in the basement could allow for mold and mildew growth. This mold and mildew can end up affecting you and your family’s health or even the structural components of your home!

Moisture can find its way into your home through a variety of ways, such as water seeping through foundation walls, cracks, or high humidity levels within the home. It’s not always easy though, to know when to take action.

A basement dehumidifier can be of use if there’s condensation on surfaces within the basement, visible mold growth around the space or on objects if walls feel damp to the touch, and/or if there are watermarks coming through walls or floors.

Humid Basements cause mold growth.

The Basement Health Association has asserted that mold and mildew flourish at relative humidity levels above 80%, therefore all basements, finished or not, should be kept at or below 50% humidity. The way to achieve this reduced humidity level is through a basement dehumidifier.

There are several types of dehumidifiers, so it’s important to choose the kind that best fits your home and lifestyle. The Typical Whole-Home Dehumidifier is only effective at temperatures above 65 degrees, making them better choices for homes without basements, as the earth that surrounds the foundation is generally a cool 55 degrees of lower throughout the year. For temperatures below 65 degrees, you’ll need a more specific dehumidifier that is specially designed to excel in those elements.
