  • Product Overview

    Studies show that as much as 50% of the air in your home travels up from your basement or crawl space. This air is often higher in relative humidity than your indoor air and it can carry with it musty odors and symptom-triggering allergens such as mold spores, mildew, bacteria, and dust mites. Moreover, too-damp air in your crawl space or basement can damage your home's infrastructure, flooring, furniture, and electromechanical systems. That's why it is so important to keep these areas dry and clean. The Santa Fe Compact 2 Dehumidifier can help you do just that.


    The Santa Fe Compact 2, also known as Santa Fe Model #4033600, is a powerful dehumidifier designed for use in basements and crawl spaces. With a horizontal configuration and a flow-through design, this unit removes excess moisture from the most compact of crawl spaces and the tightest basement areas. The unit removes approximately 70 pints of moisture under the American Home Appliance Manufacturers' (AHAM) industry-standard conditions of 80 degrees F at 60% relative humidity. That's enough to cover medium-sized basements and crawl spaces measuring up to 1,600 sq. ft.

    For larger crawlspaces, you may want to consider the Santa Fe Max Dry Dual XT Dehumidifier.

    Amazingly Compact

    Santa Fe Compact Dehumidifier - Made in the USA

    The Santa Fe Compact crawl space dehumidifier measures only 21 in. wide by 12 in. high by 12 in. deep. Never before has such a powerful dehumidifier been available in such a small package. This unit allows you to conserve your valuable crawl space and basement space. When available space is particularly tight, the Compact is actually small enough to fit in between floor joists. And with the optional Hang Kit, the unit can even be suspended from above in between floor joists.

    Basement Installation

    Using this unit as a basement dehumidifier is simple. All you have to do is plug in the unit and direct the gravity drain hose to where you would like the collected water to be drained. This may be a nearby drain, through a doorway, or out a window. One optional installation technique involves ducting the unit. Ducting the Santa Fe Compact 2 in your basement allows you to hide the unit away in a storage closet or place it where it is most convenient for you and run ductwork to and from your space. You can also choose to remove moist air from one room and discharge dry air into an alternate room, if desired.

    Crawl Space Installation

    Crawl space air vents are often not effective enough to control humidity year-round. As you may imagine, when hot moist air enters the crawlspace through a vent, the air will cool and release moisture. Therefore, a sealed crawl space – coupled with a reliable crawl space dehumidifier – is the best way to maintain a dry and healthy environment. A three-step installation process is recommended for total humidity control in your crawl space:

     

    • Seal all outside vents to eliminate outside air and control outside moisture intake.
    • Install vapor barriers over any exposed earth.
    • Install the Santa Fe Compact dehumidifier to provide complete humidity control to optimum crawl space conditions.

    As an additional option, you may also choose to run ductwork to the far ends of a crawl space to force air circulation.

    Setting Up A Drain Trap

    Santa Fe recommends setting up a drain trap when installing any of its horizontal dehumidifiers, including the Compact 2. This prevents air from moving back up through the hose and backflowing water into the machine. This also prevents potential water leaks from the corners of each unit. It's easy to create a drain trap using the included drain hose or a separate PVC trap. Watch this video on how to create a drain trap for your Santa Fe dehumidifier to learn more.

    Customized Operation

    There are a variety of accessories available that help tailor this unit to fit your specific application. You can choose from ducting kits, hang kits, caster kits, and condensate pump kits to be sure that this unit will fit your installation needs. In addition, an optional remote dehumidistat can also be used with this unit. It functions similar to a thermostat for an air conditioner. The dehumidistat is activated when the moisture level in a separate space rises above a specific threshold.

    Condensation Pump Option

    If gravity drainage is not a possible option for eliminating the collected water in your application, a condensation pump kit is available. The Compact dehumidifier is easily adaptable to use a condensate pump, and this will give you the option of running the drain hose up and out of a window or around a doorway to your yard or garden. These pumps are energy-efficient and work with a float switch that allows the pump to run only when needed.

    Advanced Air Filtration

    The Santa Fe Compact 2 comes standard with a MERV-8 air filter. The air filter protects your investment and ensures that it will perform at its best for years to come. This filter should be changed between 6 months and a year, depending on your level of pollution.

    Energy Star Rated

    ENERGY STAR Rated

    The Santa Fe Compact is Energy Star-rated, meaning that it is an energy-efficient choice that is good for your finances and for the environment. Products with the Energy Star label have the special distinction of being high energy-saving appliances that don't sacrifice performance, style, or quality.

      Used in a 600 sq.ft. basement which tends to be very humid due to surrounding ground water issues and old house. It brought level from 77% to 53% in about 20 hours and now is keeping it between 42 to 50% with no problem. I do have it at a fairly low setting, about 1/3rd into the lowest range but with several tick marks to go yet before the lowest possible setting. I adjust it slightly every so often to maintain it around 48%. Its doing an excellent job. Its warmer now but even when the basement temp was in the 50's (about 55-58 degrees) it was working well. I can see either several large drops or a little stream of water come out into the clear hose every few to several seconds. We have had rain almost every day for a month too. It was a little "fussy" to set up as it seems to work most efficiently with it elevated (I put it on the box it came with and made sure its level) and with the "trap" they recommend in the manual. The trap is nothing more than a U shape in the hose about 14 inches from where it is attached to the unit, held in that shape with a small 9 inch shock cord. That keeps some water in the hose at that spot creating a kind of air block so it works better. Considering the price and the ads about it I expect this baby to last at least ten years and, even beyond, since it should be repairable if anything goes wrong. So far, it has cost me an extra $14 this past month on my electric bill, a little less than the previous, made in China, common dehumidifier cost. (also energy star rated). We'll see how that plays out going forward.

      This little guy works as advertised. It works well even at cooler temps, right now my crawl space is at 53 degrees and it is still pumping water. The fan is great too because if you have a larger crawl space then you can really get the airflow, not to mention it will hopefully clean out all of the mold spores that were in the air. And yes it is efficient, so it does not run all the time.

      I also have a fairly small entry to the crawl space and basically if you can squeeze into the crawl space, then this machine can too.

      I have two critiques of this product first it is a bit on the loud side. Second, it is fragile and the first unit I received was not functioning, which of course you won't know until you have gone through all the trouble of installing it. Then, in order to have your exchange processed you have to charge your credit card for a second unit, so I am still waiting to be refunded. And don't be discouraged if the first one doesn't work because these things are great!

            Comments about Santa Fe Compact 2 Dehumidifier:

            Have the Compact-2 and seems to do a good job of keeping my crawlspace at 50% R.H. The adjustment knob is about 1/4 into the dry setting, but there is still more movement in the dry if I need it. It does not run all that much,but it is November. I want to see how much it runs in the humid summers of Virginia. I do have my crawl encapsulated as best as possible on a 18 year old house. Crawlspace is about 1300 square feet and 30" in height. I have the unit hanging in the center of my crawl from the floor joists. Hanging kit is easy and helps to keep unit out of the way. Dehumidifier looks and feels like quality, but will see how well it lasts. Unit can be heard directly above if no noise is in the house and i'm listening for it, so no big deal. Would buy again. If your in the market for a dehumidifier for your crawl, do not buy a big box store dehumidifier. They run continuous and I had one in crawl originally and later found out it was recalled because of fire hazard. It would also cost more to run then the Santa Fe Compact. I also have my ducted to an area 25 feet away to create more circulation in crawl and also to help with exhaust noise.

              Comments about Santa Fe Compact 2 Dehumidifier:

              The unit was straightforward to install. It took some experimenting to get the humidity level I want (sealed crawl space). I also had to think about how to drain it into a pump unit, but that worked out fine. It is fairly quiet, and it seems to operate efficiently. I hope it will last a long time, unlike the cheaper units I have tried before!

                      The Santa Fe Compact 2 is a great addition to my shop. It keeps the RH within a few points of 42% which is my goal. Much more efficient than a consumer version that couldn't keep it below 50% and never cycled off. The Compact 2 runs a lot, but not all the time. It's reasonably quiet for the amount of air it moves. Well designed and effective.

                        I placed this unit in the basement of my 90 year old house. Started with 70% humidity at 72 degrees. This unit dropped the humidity to 50% in 6 hours and to 40% in 2 days. After 2 weeks the basement is staying between 38 and 39%. My 70 pint department store unit never got the humidity below 60%.

                          The humidifyer takes care of the humidity for the entire basement. I am very happy with it so far, I guess I'll know better after a full season or two. It is worth the extra money to get a good one instead of the small ones you see at department stores.

                            It has been doing an admirable job of keeping the humidity low in a very damp basement. Although it does the job and my basement is within the specifications for the unit, I sometimes think I would have been better off upgrading to the larger unit. When in doubt, go bigger!
