The Santa Fe Advance will help maintain the structural integrity of your home, inhibit mold growth, and improve the indoor air quality of your home by removing odor-causing moisture and maintaining 50% or less relative humidity as recommended by the EPA, American Lung Association, and American Medical Association.
As much as 50% of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home comes from your crawlspace. Relative humidity levels above 70% in your crawlspace stimulate the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria and other biological allergens, which generate musty odors. Air infiltration from the crawlspace permeates the living area, carries odors, and contributes to poor indoor air quality and uncomfortable humidity levels. The Santa Fe Advance offers time-tested technology to maintain recommended humidity levels in your crawlspace and to protect your home and family from the consequences of high humidity.
Large Capacity: This high capacity dehumidifier removes up to 90 pints of water per day at standard conditions—enough water removal capacity for areas up to 2200 square feet.
Low Temp Operation: The Santa Fe Advance is powerful enough to control humidity even in the cooler environments of crawlspaces. Dehumidifiers are rated for capacity at 80°F and 60% relative humidity. At the cooler, real-life temperatures of a crawlspace, the capacity of conventional dehumidifiers drops dramatically. At temperatures below 65°F, frost forms on the coils of a conventional unit and causes the unit to ice-up. Frost cuts down on air circulation so the unit does not remove as much moisture from the air. Some units have automatic defrost but remove minimal quantities of water in cooler conditions. However, even at regular conditions, the Santa Fe Advance removes more pints of water per day than most dehumidifiers.
MERV-11 Filtration: The Santa Fe Series utilizes a blower rather than a propeller fan allowing the use of high-efficiency air filtration for improved indoor air quality. Standard MERV-11 filtration is 65% efficient at capturing particles from 1.0 to 3.0 microns in size—resulting in effective filtration of most mold spores.
Optional Ductability: Attaching ductwork to the unit promotes air circulation throughout the crawlspace allowing for the location of the unit by the crawlspace access door for convenience. The unit may also be located remotely when space doesn’t allow for placement in the crawlspace.
Low-Profile Design: Ideal for low clearance applications such as crawlspaces and attics.
