Stack effect is the movement of warm, dry air rising and escaping through the upper levels of the home and cooler, wet air finding its’ way into the lower levels in order for the home to equalize.
Excess moisture in crawlspaces and basements often migrates to the upper levels of the home through a “stack effect”. In essence, whatever air is below the house is also inside the house.
Stack Effect Contributes To:
- High Humidity
- Pest Infestations
- Poor Indoor Air Quality
- Mold Growth
- Musty Odors
- Damage to Property
Indoor humidity levels, especially in basements and crawlspaces, can rise dramatically in the summer months and during the shoulder seasons. This is why dehumidification in these spaces is essential for proper humidity control. Santa Fe Dehumidifiers are the solution to healthy, comfortable living.
The Santa Fe Classic was specifically designed for basements. The high-capacity (275 cfm) blower on the unit moves air in a way that no small conventional unit can. The Santa Fe Classic’s vertical configuration and flow-down design perform exceptionally well in basements, and provide options for installation that no other unit can match. The optional condensate pump and ducting kits provide the flexibility necessary for almost any application. No conventional dehumidifier can perform as efficiently and effectively in basements as the Santa Fe Classic.
“Open the box, plug it in, DONE! It is solid, well-built, no frills and gets the job done exactly as advertised. The energy efficiency and removal rate that Sante Fe claims is accurate as I actually measured both (Yes, I am a dorky engineer) It is still made in America to top it all off. A bit pricey, but you gotta pay to play… I am very pleased with this unit mostly because it is and does exactly what it is advertised to do!” Greg Arserio from Rochester, NY.
