Dehumidification

Dehumidification Solutions

Keep your air healthy and comfortable year round with humidity control

Dehumidifier installation can boost your comfort and health by improving the air quality in your home. A dehumidifier prevents mold and rot by removing excess moisture from the air. If not addressed, airborne mold spores and dust mites can aggravate allergies and asthma.

Signs of excess humidity in your home:

Mold and dust mites caused by moisture can trigger allergies and asthma.

  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Dust mite growth
  • Musty odors
  • Condensation on windows, pipes and ducts
  • Sticky feeling during summer and clammy feeling during winter

If you have any of these symptoms in your home, contact Dr. Energy Saver today. Our experts can assess your situation to determine if dehumidifier installation is the best solution.

Causes of indoor moisture and humidity

When warm, humid air comes in contact with a cool surface, the moisture condenses into water. Water can seep into your home through cracks in the foundation or gaps around windows. Water can also come from a leaky water pipe, toilet or shower. Activities such as cooking, bathing and clothes drying can also add moisture to the air. Cold basement walls and uninsulated ducts and pipes are common places for condensation to form. In crawl spaces, moisture can rot wood floor joists and attract insects.

Controlling moisture in your home

Basements and crawl spaces are common sources of moisture problems in many homes. The basement or crawl space is part of the inside of a building as a whole. If there is high humidity and musty odors downstairs, this will affect the upstairs environment. It's important to stop outside air from getting into your basement before installing a dehumidifier.

Dr. Energy Saver contractors perform a variety of services to reduce indoor humidity:

  • Seal and insulate rim joists
  • Seal and insulate ducts
  • Cover open sump pits
  • Seal and insulate crawl spaces

Once air and duct leaks have been sealed, we recommend installing a dehumidifier to keep your air dry and ensure mold won't grow.

Choosing the right dehumidifier

The ENERGY STAR rated SaniDry products offer efficiency, high-performance, filtration and automatic drainage.

When selecting a dehumidifier for your home, the main factors to consider are:

  • The size (square footage) of the area where you need humidity control
  • The energy performance of the unit
  • The level of maintenance - some units offer automatic drainage while some require emptying a bucket

The energy performance of a dehumidifier is measured by the amount of water removed from the air every hour compared to how much energy it uses to run. ENERGY STAR certified models are at least 15% more efficient than standard dehumidifiers.

SaniDry dehumidifiers are Dr. Energy Saver's top choice among ENERGY STAR certified dehumidifiers. SaniDry offers two models: the SaniDry Sedona and the SaniDry XP. Both systems deliver powerful humidity control and air filtration, eliminating damp, musty conditions in your basement or crawl space.
