Santa Fe Advance 2 Dehumidifier Customer Q & A

Santa Fe Advance 2 Dehumidifier Product Details
Q1:  my crawlspace is approx. 48" high,1985 sq. ft. I am sealing it up encapsulating would the Santa fe 2 be sufficient or the advance be necessary.minimal moisture, my problem is with outside air condensing in the crawlspace

A: The Compact may work for you. Though the square footage listed is slightly above what is listed for the Compact, the height you provide is lower than what is assumed when looking at the square footage covered by these models. So, the overall cubic feet that the Classic would service should be in line with the cubic feet you're drying. Additionally, since it's not a severe problem, not something where you're dealing with persistent ground moisture, flooding, or a leak, the Compact should be able to reduce and maintain a lower humidity for you. You could opt for the Advanced2. It was a fan that'll move about twice as much air around per minute and can remove more moisture per day, but you're basically right on the cusp, in terms of need and coverage. Hope that helps!

Q2: I have Santa fe advance de humidifier what is the setting for winter time setting when temperatures are in the teens and up to the forays,it shows dry what should be the setting.

A: Any setting in the "Normal" range on the humidity dial should work. Generally, the humidity can vary a good bit depending on the temperature and where you're located. If you typically see more snow than rain, I wouldn't expect it to run too much regardless of the temperature. If the opposite is true more rain than snow, you may want to keep the dial set more towards the "Drier" side of the "Normal" range. So not necessarily in the "Drier" range but leaning that way. Hope that helps!

Q3: will this basement unit also work for upper level of the house like the living area kit etc.if basement door left open. thanks jean

A: It may help somewhat, but without being tied into the home's HVAC system to better distribute drier air, it's effect will be somewhat limited.
