Crawl space repairs often utilize dehumidifiers to cleanse and dry the air within the crawl space itself. You cannot use a standard dehumidifier like one you may have in your living room or bathroom, as these are not equipped to keep up with the demands of maintaining a crawl space.
There are many different brands of dehumidifiers you can get for your crawl space repairs. We only recommend installing either Aprilaire or Santa Fe dehumidifying units for conditioning crawl spaces. Each of these brands has their own price points and features.
Aprilaire dehumidifiers are more top of the line, meaning they are more expensive but come with better functionality. We have installed over 1,000 of these units and have never experienced any issues that cannot be troubleshooted by our expert technicians. They come with a 5 year warranty that we consider to be the best in the industry.
Santa Fe Dehumidifiers
The Santa Fe Dehumidifiers offer a similar model to that of the Aprilaire, however the Aprilaires do possess higher quality technology and come with a much better warranty. The Santa Fe models are easy to operate and get the job done, but they come with a one-year warranty for parts and a limited 5 year warranty. We always recommend the Aprilaires due to the better service and warranty provided to customers.
