Dehumidification

waterproofing-dehumidifiers

Moisture in the home has many sources: plants, pets, people, cooking, washing, ground water, and infiltration of outside air. Moisture levels above 55% relative humidity can create musty odors and can also stimulate the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria, and other biological allergens.

To avoid the problems caused by moisture, a properly sized dehumidifier is necessary to maintain relative humidity between 45-50% throughout the home—including the basement. This creates a less hospitable environment for dust mites, centipedes, silverfish, spiders, and other pests. Your basement can then be used for additional comfortable living space and the safe storage of clothing, books, heirlooms, and collectibles.

Besides protecting your home and all of its contents, the high quality Santa Fe dehumidifier installed by Seitz Bros. play an important role in museums, libraries, and art galleries.

Santa Fe Classic

santafe_classicThe Santa Fe Classic Dehumidifier removes odor-causing moisture and maintains EPA recommended relative humidity levels of 45 to 50%—ideal conditions for an odor free storage space or comfortable living space for you and your family.

If you store anything of value in your basement or if you use your basement as living space, it is important to keep the moisture levels low. Relative humidity levels rising above 70% stimulate the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria and other biological allergens, which generate musty basement odors. These conditions must also be prevented in microenvironments such as underneath carpeting, rugs, or storage boxes. The Santa Fe Classic is the most energy-efficient dehumidifier in the industry and offers time-tested technology to maintain 50% or less relative humidity in your home as recommended by the EPA, American Lung Association, and American Medical Association.

Energy Star Listed:

Uses only 6.8 amps of electricity offering as much as $275 per year in energy savings compared to the conventional dehumidifier. More pints of water per kilowatt of electricity means lower cost of operation.

Large Capacity:

This high capacity basement dehumidifier removes up to 100 pints of water per day—enough water removal capacity for areas up to 2,500 square feet.

Low Temp Operation:

Powerful enough to control humidity even in the cooler environments of basements. Dehumidifiers are rated at 80°F and 60% relative humidity. At the cooler, real-life temperatures of a basement, the capacity of conventional dehumidifiers drops dramatically.

At temperatures below 65°F, frost forms on the coils of a conventional unit and causes the unit to ice-up. Frost cuts down on air circulation so the unit does not remove as much moisture from the air. Some units have automatic defrost but remove minimal quantities of water in cooler conditions. However, even at regular basement conditions, the Santa Fe Classic removes more pints of water per day than most dehumidifiers.

MERV-11 Filtration:

The Santa Fe Classic Series utilizes a blower rather than a propeller fan allowing the use of high-efficiency air filtration for improved indoor air quality. Standard MERV-11 filtration is 65% efficient and captures particles from 1.0 to 3.0 microns in size—resulting in effective filtration of most mold spores.

Optional Ductability:

Attaching ductwork to the unit promotes air circulation throughout the basement, allowing for placement of the dehumidifier in a remote location such as the mechanical room.

Santa Fe Advanced

  • Designed for crawlspaces
  • Low-clearance design
  • High capacity, energy efficient dehumidification

santafe_advanceControl Crawlspace Moisture

The Santa Fe Advance will help maintain the structural integrity of your home, inhibit mold growth, and improve the indoor air quality of your home by removing odor-causing moisture and maintaining 50% or less relative humidity as recommended by the EPA, American Lung Association, and American Medical Association.

As much as 50% of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home comes from your crawlspace.

Relative humidity levels above 70% in your crawlspace stimulate the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria and other biological allergens, which generate musty odors. Air infiltration from the crawlspace permeates the living area, carries odors, and contributes to poor indoor air quality and uncomfortable humidity levels. The Santa Fe Advance offers time-tested technology to maintain recommended humidity levels in your crawlspace and to protect your home and family from the consequences of high humidity.

Large Capacity:

This high capacity dehumidifier removes up to 90 pints of water per day at standard conditions—enough water removal capacity for areas up to 2200 square feet.

Low Temp Operation:

The Santa Fe Advance is powerful enough to control humidity even in the cooler environments of crawlspaces. Dehumidifiers are rated for capacity at 80°F and 60% relative humidity. At the cooler, real-life temperatures of a crawlspace, the capacity of conventional dehumidifiers drops dramatically. At temperatures below 65°F, frost forms on the coils of a conventional unit and causes the unit to ice-up. Frost cuts down on air circulation so the unit does not remove as much moisture from the air. Some units have automatic defrost but remove minimal quantities of water in cooler conditions. However, even at regular conditions, the Santa Fe Advance removes more pints of water per day than most dehumidifiers.

Standard MERV-11 filtration is 65% efficient at capturing particles from 1.0 to 3.0 microns in size—resulting in effective filtration of most mold spores.

Optional Ductability:

Attaching ductwork to the unit promotes air circulation throughout the crawlspace allowing for the location of the unit by the crawlspace access door for convenience. The unit may also be located remotely when space doesn’t allow for placement in the crawlspace.

Low-Profile Design:

Ideal for low clearance applications such as crawlspaces.
