Blog » How a High-Efficiency, High-Capacity Dehumidifier Saves Money

November 30, 2023

Between lake-effect snow and frequent rain, upstate New York is well known for its high humidity and damp environments. However, that condition should not extend to the interior of your Rochester home, and a high efficiency dehumidifier can help. It’s estimated that more than 40% of your first-floor air is drawn in from your crawl space or basement. That means that if that air has mold or mildew spores, it can have a serious impact on your health.

How a High-Efficiency, High-Capacity Dehumidifier Saves Money

When you’re trying to fix a moisture problem in a basement, you’ll want to start with waterproofing the area to ensure that you don’t have a lot of excess water getting into the space. Unfortunately, given the wet environment of upstate New York, that still leaves a lot of water to deal with. Our top answer is a high-quality dehumidifier designed to remove a large amount of moisture from the air while operating at high efficiency to keep your power bills down.

You could simply buy a dehumidifier, but it won’t be designed for continuous use under the conditions that are common to upstate New York. This means that it will draw a lot of power while being used continuously, leading to a short overall lifespan. At the same time, it won’t have a high enough capacity to remove enough water from the air to make a significant difference in your home.

At Storm Basement Waterproofing, we recommend a dehumidifier that has a large capacity for removing moisture from the air, up to 110 pints of water daily or 13.75 gallons of water. It’s Energy Star listed by drawing only 6.4 amps of electricity, giving you up to $275 a year in annual energy savings compared to conventional units. It’s designed to meet MERV-11 filtration standards, reaching 65% efficiency while removing particles as small as 1.0 microns from your air, removing the most harmful spores.

Poor-quality basement or crawl space air can lead to significant health effects, but you can remedy the issue by installing a high-efficiency, high-capacity dehumidifier in your Rochester home, allowing you to fix the problem without breaking the bank. If you’re ready to look at the options that you have available in high-efficiency dehumidification of your basement space, the experienced professionals at Storm Basement are ready to help.
