Do I Need a Dehumidifier In My Basement?

Dehumidifiers are important tools for building and maintaining healthy indoor air and a comfortable climate throughout your home. Basements and smaller crawl spaces tend to collect more moisture and humidity than other rooms. As a result, they can produce unwanted mold and mildew that a dehumidifier could protect against.

How Does a Dehumidifier Work?

A dehumidifier uses a fan to draw humidity and moisture from the air, then passes it through the unit to collect on a set of coils before heading into a tank or reservoir.

If your dehumidifier doesn’t have a pump, you’ll need to empty the tank manually once it’s full. Consider a basement dehumidifier with a pump to save yourself this hassle.

Selecting a Dehumidifier

A dehumidifier works wonders to keep your home’s air safe and clean. If you’re ready to invest in a dehumidifier, make sure you’re selecting the best one for your home and that you know what size you need.
