Santa Fe Releases New Santa Fe Advance2 Dehumidifier

Posted by Tony on June 28th, 2013

santa-fe-advance-2-dehumidifierThe best keep getting better—it’s an old saying that almost always seems to be true. While I’ve never heard it used to describe a dehumidifier, it’s exactly what Santa Fe has done to its massively-popular Santa Fe Advance Dehumidifier. Many considered the American-built Advance the best dehumidifier around, and yet it just got even better thanks to the new upgraded version: the Santa Fe Advance 2 Dehumidifier. Specifically, the top-of-the-line crawl space and basement dehumidifier is even more efficient, quiet, and durable.Energy Star seal

The Advance 2 shares a lot of the great features its predecessor included: it removes 90 pints of moisture a day and keeps spaces up to 2,200 square feet full of fresh, dry air. It’s also Energy Star-rated, uses superior filtration, and has multiple installation options.

But a few design improvements help the Advance 2 run more efficiently and quietly. The biggest change is it now offers dual-exhaust outlets for increased airflow and efficiency. As opposed to 1 exhaust in the original Santa Fe Advance, the Advance 2 uses dual-exhausts to quickly push dehumidified air throughout your basement, crawl space, or other area. This means it delivers the maximum amount of treated air in a shorter amount of time, so your made-in-usaspace will be full of treated, dehumidified air quicker than ever before.

A more durable, sheet metal shell is another design upgrade. This update not only helps your dehumidifier last longer but allows it to operate more quietly than before. Santa Fe engineers also made their new model slightly smaller, so it’s easier to install and place in your home space.

3 Ways Dehumidifiers Help Relieve Allergies and Asthma

Posted by Ashley on May 18th, 2012

Allergy and Asthma Awareness MonthMay is the peak of spring allergy season and it also marks an important event, National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. This month is a great time to educate yourself on the best ways to relieve your symptoms and eliminate common triggers from your home. You probably already know that HEPA air purifiers and HEPA vacuums remove sniffle-causing allergens in your space. Did you also know that portable dehumidifiers can help you conquer your symptoms even further? The key is controlling your humidity.

Here are 3 ways these popular basement appliances keep your symptoms in check.

    1. Dehumidifiers stop mold growth.

    Damp, humid air in your home (above 50% humidity) creates the ideal environment for mold to grow and thrive. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, mold can  trigger the same symptoms as outdoor pollen. Using a dehumidifier stops mold growth by reducing the moisture content of your air and keeping your home’s overall humidity under control. To eliminate and prevent mold indoors, use your dehumidifier to maintain a humidity level between 45 and 50%.

    What Makes a Dehumidifier Eco-Friendly?

    Posted by Ashley on April 13th, 2012

    Soleus Air SG-DEH-70-2 DehumidifierDehumidifiers are getting smarter when it comes to getting rid of stuffy mold-causing humidity, helping cut your energy costs, and being easier on the environment. The newest line of Soleus Air dehumidifiers leads the pack with the Soleus Air SG-DEH-70-2 Dehumidifier, recently named a Best Buy for efficiency, among other features, by a leading consumer reporting magazine.

    But what exactly makes a dehumidifier eco-friendly? These days, it’s much more than an Energy Star seal of approval. Mostly, it comes down to energy-saving features that help reduce the machine’s impact on the environment. If you’re looking for a home dehumidifier and you’ve got energy and the environment on your mind, let these bells and whistles guide the way as you narrow down your choices.

    Adjustable Humidistat

    DeLonghi DD50P Dehumidifier - Controls
    Dehumidifiers with adjustable humidistats let you set your desired humidity level for your space. These give you more control over the humidity in your home and automate the dehumidifying process, so you have the best shot at energy savings. Onboard humidistats also mean that once your ideal humidity is reached, the fan and compressor run intermittently to maintain humidity, reducing the unit’s energy consumption overall.

    Introducing the Santa Fe Impact XT Dehumidifier!

    Posted by Ashley on February 15th, 2012

    Santa Fe Impact XT DehumidifierThere’s a new Santa Fe dehumidifier on the block and it has officially given new meaning to the phrase “energy efficient dehumidifier.” As the most energy efficient freestanding dehumidifier on the market, the Santa Fe Impact XT Dehumidifier exceeds Energy Star standards by roughly 50%, doubling the moisture removal rate of many conventional high-capacity dehumidifiers. A true pioneer in its class, this workhorse unit eliminates musty, humid conditions in your basement or crawl space while reducing your energy bill and being easier on the environment.

    Like all Energy Star dehumidifiers, the Impact XT is built with super-efficient internal components and uses eco-friendly R-410A refrigerant. These improvements alone mean you’ll save up to $220 over the operating life of the unit. The Impact takes your potential savings further with its uniquely high Energy Factor. A standard measurement of efficiency for dehumidifiers, Energy Factor refers to the amount of moisture removed in liters per kilowatt hour of energy consumed (L/kWh).
