Santa Fe Advance120 Dehumidifiers
As one of the most powerful Santa Fe residential dehumidifiers available, the Santa Fe Advance120 (formerly the Force) can dry out even the largest basement or crawlspace. With a top end water removal capacity of 120 pints per day, this dehumidifier is a force to be reckoned with. Moving air at a rate of 365 CFM, the Santa Fe Advance120 dehumidifier can effectively dry spaces as large as 4,100 sq. ft. Made here in the U.S., this steel constructed dehumidifier is built to last, and the MERV 13 air filter helps to not only improve air quality but keep harmful dirt and debris out of the blower motor and coils. Few residential dehumidifiers compare when you factor in how much effective, efficient and durable the Santa Fe Advance120 is. If mold, mildew or pests in your crawlspace is your problem, then the Santa Fe Advance120 is the solution!
Santa Fe Advance120 Basement Package
The Santa Fe Advance120 dehumidifier is very easy to use, but in some situations, draining away the removed moisture can be a problem. If gravity doesn't allow you to simply run the drain line or there is no floor drain nearby (for a basement install), your next best option is to go with the Advance Basement Kit! This package comes with all the components you need to effectively and quickly drain condensate in any situation. A powerful condensate pump attaches directly to the Advance120 dehumidifier and can push water up to 20 feet, out of the drying space. Able to move condensate both horizontally and vertically, this basement package not only includes the Advance120 residential dehumidifier, pump, mounting hardware, and drain hose but also the AcuRite humidity gauge/thermometer. A large LCD displays the indoor/outdoor temperatures and humidity levels as well as daily high/low temps, time, date, and current moon phase. The wireless sensor can be placed just about anywhere, and the display can be used with the supplied stand or wall mounted. Each component in the basement package provides you the needed flexibility for tricky installs and less than ideal situations.

Santa Fe Advance120 Dehumidifier
With the Santa Fe line of crawlspace dehumidifiers, you have many choices to choose from. The easiest way to separate each of the models is by the space they can effectively dry and by how much moisture per day each model can remove. Using these criteria, the Santa Fe Advance120 is near the top of the line. Let's take a closer look at this model and how it might be the right fit for you.
What I like about the Santa Fe Advance120
Water Removal & Coverage - The two strongest characteristics of the Advance120 are its water removal capacity and coverage area. When it comes to removing moisture from the air, only the Impact155 surpasses the Santa Fe Advance120. Rated for 120 pints per day, the Advance120 has a powerful 365 CFM fan/blower to cycle air through quickly and dry it effectively. Again, when it comes to coverage area, this 120 pint dehumidifier is second only to the Impact155. Because of the well-built internal components and the strength of the blower, the Advance120 can dry spaces up to 4,100 sq. ft., more than enough for the basements or crawlspaces in the vast majority of homes.
Energy Efficiency - In terms of energy efficiency, the Santa Fe Advance120 is Energy Star compliant and exceeds minimum requirements. Compared to other Santa Fe dehumidifier models, the Advance120 comes in near the middle of the pack - more efficient than the Compact70 or Advance90 but not quite as efficient as the Impact or Impact. Still, the energy costs could be substantial, particularly when compared to different brands of crawlspace dehumidifiers.
Other Relevant Features - Like other Santa Fe crawlspace dehumidifier models, the Advance120 is built tough for years of consistent use. Steel construction and a MERV 13 air filter keep the vital inner components of this dehumidifier safe from damage and free of debris. If you happen to suffer a power loss with the Advance120, it will automatically resume operation when power is restored, and sensors allow this dehumidifier to detect when the coils are in danger of icing and all the warmed air from the motor to defrost the unit. The simple controls are easy enough for anyone to use. Once your machine is situated and level, simply plug it in and set your desired humidity level. It really is as easy as that. The warranty and adaptable nature of the Santa Fe Advance120 dehumidifier is like the others in the line. Peace of mind and flexible install options come standard!
Overall, the Santa Fe Advance120 is a well rounded, crawlspace/basement dehumidifier. The powerful components of the Advance120 make it second in water removal capacity and coverage only to the top of the line Impact. Like other Santa Fe models, the price might be higher than comparable models, but it makes up for it with performance, cost savings from more energy efficient operation, and longevity. For even most large homes, the Advance120 will be a great crawlspace solution to excess moisture, mold, mildew and insects.
