Dehumidifiers Take Care of Moisture For You
For most, the basement is an out-of-sight, out-of-mind room in the house. In reality, the condition and moisture levels of your basement will make or break the rest of your home’s health.
A dehumidifier is an electrical appliance, kind of like a dishwasher or AC unit, that removes moisture from your home’s interior climate. It can go in the area most prone to excessive moisture, like your basement or even crawl space. For homes with moisture issues, this tool is a must-have to maintain a clean environment and to prevent structural damage.
Basement Air Systems for Your Home
Not all basement air systems are made equal. Groundworks carefully researches all of the products on the market to ensure we are providing homeowners with the best of the best. Our basement dehumidifiers have been tried and tested for several vital qualities.
- Energy Efficient
Over time, a high-quality dehumidifier will pay for itself by increasing the energy efficiency of the house. The dehumidifier also connects directly to your drain network or sump pump system. As the water cavity fills, the dehumidifier will automatically drain itself, meaning you don’t have to perform any maintenance.
- Powerful and Capable
A well-designed dehumidifier does its job and does it well. Our available models perform at their peak consistently and within a day of installation, you will feel the difference in the air. The air quality of your home will improve not only through reduced humidity but through the prevention of mold, mildew, and wood rot.
- Built to Last
A dehumidifier is an investment and only worthwhile if it lasts. Any machine designed to operate in a damp environment needs to be built with exposure to moisture in mind. Our dehumidifiers are durable, tough, and have a lasting competence. Each machine comes with a warranty and our technicians will provide regular maintenance through check-ups.
Quiet Efficiency and Effective Moisture Control
The dehumidifiers installed by Groundworks crews operate quietly and efficiently—the best of both worlds and the ideal solution for the family home.
No one likes their peaceful home disturbed by a persistent humming or grinding noise. The noise alone can deter many homeowners from investing in a dehumidifier.
With Groundworks, your comfort and peace of mind are at the forefront of our work. We always work to innovate the best home protection solutions, so your trust and investment can pay off.
Protection for Your Family
Protect what matters most by keeping your basement dry and free of pests, rot, and mold. Dark, humid environments are a haven for these common plights.
Plus, certain molds are toxic and can cause serious health issues. Black mold can cause rashes, frequent headaches, and chronic coughing. Pests like cockroaches and rats are also known carriers of bacteria and disease and can contaminate your basement with droppings.
As heat from the lower levels of your home rises into your living areas, it will bring this contaminated air up with it–putting everyone in the home at risk of allergies, irritation, and illness. Keeping a basement free of humidity doesn’t just ensure your family’s comfort, it helps keep your home clean and sanitary.
Dehumidifiers are just one aspect of a greater basement waterproofing strategy. Keeping your basement dry means a cleaner, safer home for your family.
A Complete Service Solution
Groundworks provides complete basement waterproofing solutions. In most cases, we do not recommend a dehumidifier as a stand-alone solution against high humidity levels. Addressing the cause of the humidity allows you to better control the interior environment.
Depending on your home, this may mean installing superior insulation, vapor barriers, a drainage system, or a more powerful sump pump. Other solutions working in tandem with a dehumidifier can ensure that water drains away from your basement. A full solution installation goes a long way toward preventing humidity spikes.
