What Size Dehumidifier Do I Need For My Basement?

The larger the space, the more moisture and humidity it can collect. In turn, try to pick a system that matches the size of your basement and the level of humidity that typically collects.

Picking the Right Size

If you have a smaller basement (generally in homes up to 1500 square feet), a 30 pint dehumidifier should do the trick. For basements in larger homes measuring between 3000 and 4500 square feet, it’s best to get a 70 pint dehumidifier that can handle all the moisture and humidity that builds up.

While dehumidifiers are extremely helpful for keeping mold and mildew away, they need to be the right size to do so effectively. Before buying a unit, measure your basement so you can select the best dehumidifier for that space.
