AprilAire 1850F Basement Dehumidifier

$1,499.99 $1,379.99

1. AprilAire 1850F Dehumidifier

It was hard to top the most popular basement dehumidifier we offer, but Aprilaire took suggestions and feedback and have replaced the top rated 1710A with the new Aprilaire 1850F dehumidifier. The 1710A was an ideal choice for basement not only because it removed a whopping 90 pints per day, but was extremely durable, simple to use and could be moved around fairly easily in a basement setting. The new 1850F improves upon most of these features and adds in some new ones. With an AHAM extraction rate of 95 pints per day, the Aprilaire has increased water removal capacity while actually shrinking the overall size of the machine. Lighter and more compact, the 1850F can now fit between standard floor joists.

Instead of a dial humidistat, the 1850F basement dehumidifier now features an LCD screen with digital humidistat and push button controls for more accurate readings. With the redesign, there is no longer any need for a P-trap or priming. It still retains the casters, durable steel body, and MERV 8 air filter as well as auto defrost and auto restart features. This model is also the quietest amongst all basement dehumidifiers and like all Aprilaire dehumidifiers is made in the USA.


Shop Santa Fe Classic Basement Dehumidifiers

$1,626.00

2. Santa Fe Classic Basement Dehumidifier

Like No. 1 on this list, the Santa Fe Classic dehumidifier is perfect for use in finished or unfinished basements. It is actually smaller and more compact than it looks. At just 3' tall and equipped with casters, this all steel basement dehumidifier is built to handle the rigors of use in any style environment, and by removing up to 110 pints per day, the Classic can dry just about any basement. Aside from performance and its construction, there are a few other things you will like about the Classic basement dehumidifier. Not only does it come with auto-restart and auto-defrost features but it also features two stage air filtration and a MERV 11 air filter that traps particles in the low end range of 1-3 microns, some of the best air filtration just shy of HEPA standard.

Initially, the cost of the Santa Fe Classic might appear somewhat high, but when you consider the Classic exceeds Energy Star minimum requirements, you see that this dehumidifier uses much less power than many less expensive models. Rounding out the pros of this American made unit is the versatility to bolt on a condensate pump or duct the unit into your existing HVAC system, one of the best warranties available and a free humidity gauge when you register your Classic. In all, the Santa Fe Classic basement dehumidifier makes a very strong run as the top basement dehumidifier.


Shop Danby 70 Pint Dehumidifiers

$274.99 $247.49

3. Danby 70 Pint DDR70A1GP

The ever popular Danby Premier 70 pint dehumidifier not only finds good use in rooms but also in many basements. Lighter than steel models and with casters and handles built in, the Danby DDR70A1GP can be easily moved from room to room in a basement. Smaller than the other top basement dehumidifiers, it can extract 70 pints of moisture per day, exceeding that under more severe conditions. Once this model is set up, it is very easy to maintain. Because of its auto defrost and auto restart features, if you port this model the only real maintenance you will ever have is periodically vacuuming the air filter.

Purchase the Danby 70 Pint Dehumidifier Basement Package and the included condensate pump gives you the ability to directly drain the Danby even when there is no floor drain nearby. Two speeds and full digital controls, including a digital reading of current humidity levels, set this model apart from others. As an Energy Star certified dehumidifier, this Danby Premier is even inexpensive to operate! Perfect for finished basements, the Danby 70 pint dehumidifier has the performance and reputation to make it Number 3 on our top basement dehumidifiers list.


Ebac CD35P Basement Dehumidifier

$769.00

4. Ebac CD35P

As the most affordable basement dehumidifier with a steel frame and body, the Ebac CD35P is also one of the lightest and most versatile basement units available. The features of this model are many, including auto defrost, casters for easy movement, a built-in condensate pump, and 25 ft. of drain hose. All of these features give you the ability move the CD35P from room to room, and use the basement dehumidifier even in spaces where there is no floor drain. The integrated pump can push water horizontally, vertically, or both. The no nonsense design makes setup and operation simple and quick.

If you have no need for the integrated condensate and a floor drain is nearby, you can opt for the standard Ebac CD35 model. The water removal capacity, 17 PPD (with nearly double that under severe conditions), CD35 models lacks the pump but is less expensive than the CD35P. For small to mid-size basements, the CD35P or Ebac CD35 is an excellent way to remove excess moisture, limit mold growth and eliminate mildew odors quickly and without hassle.


Santa Fe Max Dry Dual XT Basement Dehumidifier

$2,163.00

5. Santa Fe Max Dry

As the highest capacity residential dehumidifier available, the Santa Fe Max Dry offers the most robust water removal without costing you a fortune to operate. With superior engineering, the Max Dry Dual XT basement dehumidifier exceeds Energy Star minimum standards and consumes less power per pint of water removed all while extracting up to 155 pints of moisture per day at AHAM. That's nearly 20 gallons, and even more under extreme conditions!

The steel body and frame provide durability and stability while a 2" MERV 11 filter removes particulate and contaminants while keeping the coils and blower free of dirt and debris. It also comes with 8' of drain hose, auto restart and auto defrost features as well as an industry leading warranty. The Max Dry is a little louder than other Santa Fe dehumidifiers but this is because this powerful machine moves nearly 400 cu. ft. of air per minute. This allows it to dry extremely large spaces, up to 3600 sq. ft. Quite simply, the Santa Fe Max Dry is the biggest, most powerful basement dehumidifier available.
