Basement Dehumidifier

SaniDry™ Basement Dehumidifier logoFor removing high levels of relative humidity in a basement, a dehumidifier is the plain answer... but not just any dehumidifier. Basement Systems has been dealing with this issue intensely for nearly 20 years, and the only machine that will get you the results you need is one called a SaniDry™ Basement Air System. And it's awesome!

The SaniDry™ Basement Air System is a high-capacity, high-efficiency dehumidifier with air filtration in a single unit. The SaniDry™ takes up to 100 pints of water per day out of your basement air, while using the same energy as a 40-pint dehumidifier. And it filters particles out of the air to less than an incredible two microns in size - which is smaller than any mold spore or dust mite dropping.

SaniDry™ dehumidifier and 35-pint dehumidifierThe SaniDry™ has a powerful blower to move the dry air all around your basement space. This dry air then dries your building materials and basement contents, which makes the damp smell and damp feeling go away! What a huge difference a SaniDry™ can make in condensation season. People really love their dry basement environments after having a SaniDry™ installed.

You'll also never have to empty any buckets on your SaniDry™ basement dehumidifier because it automatically drains into your WaterGuard® basement waterproofing system or sump pump.

Having a groundwater-free basement is one thing, adding a SaniDry™ is like putting the cherry on top of your dry basement program -- it makes it complete. There are not many basements that don't need one. Picture the concrete in your basement turning white because it is so dry!


SaniDry™ is an Energy Efficient Dehumidifier

To further prove its mettle, the SaniDry™ is an  Energy Efficient Dehumidifier - a rare achievement for a dehumidification system. Products/homes/buildings that are energy efficient are designed to protect the environment through superior energy efficiency.


Another big benefit of the SaniDry™ system is that it doesn't have to be located in the space it's drying. You can locate it in a utility room and duct the wet air in and dry air out to the main room of your basement.

Why does the SaniDry™ perform so well?

How does it perform so incredibly well with the same amount of energy that less-effective 20-pound-weakling dehumidifiers use?
Sanidry Cold Coil
  • The SaniDry™ blows air over a huge cold coil. It looks like a truck radiator instead of the little squirrelly spiral coil of dinky dehumidifiers.
  • The SaniDry™ runs the exiting dry cold air through a special heat-exchange core that pre-cools the incoming wet air and recaptures energy.
  • The SaniDry™'s powerful 250 cfm blower not only grabs more air in to dry faster, but moves the dry air out around your basement to dry the contents of your basement as well.
There are other component reasons SaniDry™ wins the dehumidifier battle, but these are the main ones.


Why Home Dehumidifiers Just Don't Do the Job

  • They are too small.
  • The cold coil (the actual thing that takes the water out of the air) is too small.
  • The fan is too small (it has to be so it doesn't blow the air past the dinky coil too fast, otherwise it wouldn't take any water out!)
  • The fan doesn't circulate the dry air around your basement - because it's too small.
  • They usually aren't drained automatically, so the bucket fills up and they shut off.
  • They are rated (25 pints, 30 pints, 40 pints, etc.) per day at 80 degrees air temperature. Warm air holds a lot more moisture than cold air. Put them in a 68 degree basement and
    their effectiveness goes way down below this number.
