Dehumidifiers regulate humidity by removing moisture from the air; creating living spaces that are comfortable and inhospitable to dust mites, mold and other allergens.
How Dehumidification Works
- First, the humid air is pulled into the dehumidifier through the high-efficiency air filter
- It then passes over the evaporator coil. The cold surface of the evaporator coil combined with the humid air forces water to come condense and form water droplets on the coil.
- This water then drops into the drain pan and runs out of the dehumidifier through the drain tube.
- The now cold dry air goes over the condenser coils and is heated, and the warm dry air is now supplied to the basement or crawl space.
There are also products in the Santa Fe line that contain patented air to air heat exchanging technology and dual exhaust, which allows for higher capacity and efficiency, as well as flexible installation options.
