Santa Fe Compact Dehumidifier Review

Posted by John on July 25th, 2008

Santa Fe Compact DehumidifierEditor’s Note: The original Santa Fe Compact Dehumidifier has been replaced by the Santa Fe Compact 2 Dehumidifier. It packs all the same features as the original model, but has a slightly higher moisture removal capacity along with a more compact and efficient design.

Don’t let its size fool you; this 65-pint capacity dehumidifier may not be much bigger than a breadbox, but it’s twice as powerful as the 65-pint dehumidifiers at your local hardware store – and it’s more energy efficient.

The Santa Fe Compact Dehumidifier is made to fit in small places – crawlspaces, basements, closets, and even between floor joists. You can suspend it from above with the optional hang kit; make it a truly portable dehumidifier with the caster kit; or hide it inside a utility closet with the ducting kit.

Although it’s only 21 inches wide, 12 inches high, and 12 inches deep, this compact dehumidifier covers up to 1800 square feet and removes 65 pints of water a day. Not only is it powerful, but it’s also a highly efficient ENERGY STAR rated dehumidifier, and it works well in temperatures as low as 40 degrees F.

As an allergy sufferer, my favorite feature of the Santa Fe Compact is its MERV-11 air filter, which removes all allergens down to one micron in size (including mold spores and dust). This advanced filtration will keep your air clean and also protect your investment. The filter needs to be changed at least once a year, more frequently in polluted environments.

Plus, while supplies last, you’ll get a free digital humidity gauge and thermometer when you order the Santa Fe Compact dehumidifier. While the dehumidifier has its own built-in humidity gauge, the free mini hygro-thermometer comes in handy for monitoring the humidity in other rooms, like your bedroom. If you have allergies, it’s important to monitor the humidity in your bedroom. Keep the relative humidity below 50 percent to prevent the growth of mold and dust mites.

The Santa Fe compact dehumidifier just came out earlier this year, but it’s already on the fast track to becoming a customer favorite, thanks to its compact size, reliability, ease of use, and energy efficiency. This compact dehumidifier offers commercial-grade power plus convenience, versatility, and value for the health-conscious homeowner. I give it five out of five stars.
