  Solved a musty basement
Reviewed by: A happy customer from Logan, Ohio

We are planning to refinish part of our basement and we wanted to make sure we could control the moisture levels first. Our contractor suggested the Santa Fe Classic dehumidifier. We absolutely love how it has lowered the humidity level AND removed the musty smell in our basement. We plan to buy the duct kit once the refinishing is complete. Purchasing from achoo allergy was a breeze.

Have had unit for 10 weeks now and so far am happy with the performance. My 1000 sq.ft. basement humidity was typically about 74%. The existing humidifier had ped it to 69% but the basement still smelled clammy and some items I had in a safe had mold growing on them. I set this unit at the recommended setting and my humidity ped to about 60%. I wanted below 50% so I put the unit on its max setting to see what I could get. It ran constantly for about 10 days before I got to 50% but it would not go any lower according to my old analog hygrometer . Just to be sure I bought a better unit and it indicated 36%! Seeing that the accuracy was +/- 6% it was at most 42%. In the end I was able to back down the setting on the unit so it doesn't run as much. 1st electric bill jumped quite a bit. Hoping for lower cost with the new setting. The wife is much happier now with the smell gone with the washer and dryer in the basement. For the cost they should include a humidistat. I rarely give anything 5 stars. If it runs 10 years I'll give it 5 stars :!

Customer Q & A

Q1: What is the recommended time for replacement of the air filters on the Sante Fe Classic? Which dehumidifier would you recommend for our basement? It is 900sf, with 7.5'ceilings and a concrete foundation slab that has no waterproofing membrane. We live in a location where the water table level is just below the basement slab during several months of the year.

A: Six month to a year. It will vary depending on how dusty the space is, but somewhere in that time interval generally suffices. For very dusty environments, you'll see replacement times of every three months, more in line with a standard HVAC filter change. In terms of the space, the Classic would likely work. That's a fairly high water table. During those months I would expect it to run a good bit more than the rest of the year. Still, for that area, the Classic should work fine. Hope that helps!

Q2: We have a Santa-Fe Dehumidifier in a finished basement. The basement floor is tiled. I was told we should raise the dehumidifier off the floor on blocks or 2by4's, as it's drawing moisture from the ground under the floor and that affects the efficiency. Is that correct?

A: This may be true, but the extent to which it will draw moisture won't be too terribly much. While tile is porous and readily adsorbs moistures, underneath it should be mastik or mortar then generally concrete for when the foundation and basement was originally poured. Slowly, moisture will want to migrate. It always does, but moving through these layers will likely be slow and not something that will dramatically impact the operation of the dehumidifier. Additionally, the air intake on this model is through the top. If it was lower to the ground, drawing moisture through the flooring might be more of an issue, but in this case, not so much. That being said, I would agree that elevating it isn't a bad idea, if only by a few inches or so. The reason is, by elevating you make it easier for the moisture to gravity drain out the hose and away. If you're placing the Classic near a floor drain, then any elevation is likely unnecessary. If you're using the Classic dehumidifier with a condensate pump, then again, elevating is likely unnecessary. Hope that helps!

Santa Fe Classic Dehumidifier Reviews
Santa Fe Classic Dehumidifier

A wet basement can be a serious problem in your home. Not only does it encourage mold and mildew growth but also creates the perfect environment for insects. These are two really good reasons to keep your basement or crawlspace dry, and one of the most popular ways to accomplish this and maintain a drier home, free of mold is with the Santa Fe Classic Dehumidifier, designed specifically for basements. Let's breakdown the strengths and weaknesses of this dehumidifier.

What I like about the Santa Fe Classic

Capacity - The AHAM rating for the Santa Fe Classic is 110 pints. So in very warm, humid conditions (80° with 60% RH), the Classic is right in line with most large basement dehumidifiers. The capacity is higher than some of your more traditional models that people use in basements, like Danby, Kenmore, etc., and this is largely due to a stronger blower with a higher CFM. At 275 CFM, the Classic can cycle through over 16,500 cubic feet of air per hour. So, in a basement with an eight foot ceiling you're talking about the ability to cycle through ALL the air in a space that is 45 ft. x 45 ft. That's a big basement!

Energy Star Rated - Not only does the Classic dry large spaces, but it does so with less expense than comparable basement dehumidifiers. Unlike others, the Santa Fe Classic exceeds Energy Star standards. Per kilowatt, this model can extract over six pints of water. Though the initial cost of the Classic is going to be higher than other models, you tend to make that up on your monthly power bill in short order. Compared to some basement dehumidifiers this is going translate into HALF as much of a monthly increase in your electric bill.

Durable - You won't find any plastic with the Santa Fe Classic basement dehumidifier. The vast majority of this unit is steel, including the exterior housing and internal structure. This does add some weight, but the upside is a model that's built to last.

Filtration - In a crawlspace, air filtration isn't quite as important as in a basement, and most filters used in dehumidifiers tend to only trap the larger particles that can clog up the motor/blower and coils. The Classic provides some of the best air filtration of any dehumidifier available, not only keeping the air clean for the blower but, more importantly, for you as well! First, there is a washable, large particle prefilter to trap visible particles like hair and dust bunnies. Next, there is a MERV 11 pleated filter. This filter traps particles as small as one micron. For your basement this means additional air filtration beyond what your normal furnace filter would provide.

Additional Features & Add-Ons - Auto Restart and Auto Defrost are both features that help to keep the Santa Fe Classic running even when conditions aren't the best. The included casters are one feature that make the Classic uniquely suited for basements. In addition to these built-in features, the Classic is built to be customized. From ducting and mounting kits to condensate pump kits, the Classic is made adaptable to your specific situation.

American Made - Each Santa Fe dehumidifier is crafted in Wisconsin, which makes this brand one of the few that is actually built here in the U.S.

What I did not like about the Santa Fe Classic

With nearly all Santa Fe dehumidifiers, there's simply no getting around initial cost. However, Santa Fe dehumidifiers are much like Miele vacuums in this regard. You may pay a little more up front, but in the long run you save. With the Santa Fe Classic you save not only because this basement dehumidifier is well built and will likely last you many, many years, but you save over comparable models with regard to how much you'll pay to operate it. The power usage is lower and more efficient than most comparable models and a savings of $15-$25 per month on your electric bill can add up fast.

The other drawback with this model is the weight. It's a hefty machine for sure! The lack of plastic and emphasis on durable steel construction do contribute to it weighing more. The included casters do provide some added mobility that is lacking with other basement humidifiers, and overall size is similar to most other basement dehumidifier models.

The Santa Fe Classic basement dehumidifier is easily one of the top three most popular models offered. It's well built, durable, extremely efficient, and can make a dramatic difference to the overall health of your home. By lowering humidity the Classic can stop mold and drive insects out of your basement while reducing mildew odors and actually improving indoor air quality. One other thing to keep in mind, the warranty for Santa Fe dehumidifiers has improved. Each model is now covered by a two year parts and labor warranty as well as the five year warranty of the refrigerant. That's an extra year longer than nearly any other model available. While the cost can be higher than other models, power consumption is less, and you can take some pride in owning one of the few home appliances that is still made right here in the U.S. If a wet basement is your problem, the Santa Fe Classic dehumidifier is the solution you're looking for!

The Ebac CD35 has a no nonsense durable design, and is very quiet, free of rattles. Achoo Allergy expedited the order and we received the unit in a very timely manner. I would recommend this unit for anyone needing a smaller capacity, well built dehumidifier.
