      Comments about Santa Fe Impact Dehumidifier:

      I have had my Sante Fe Impact Dehumidifer for three months and I want to say that I love it and I would not be without it. It is used in a basement that would tend to smell with an increase in humididty. I had 2 heavy duty LG dehumidifiers working around the clock in hopes of reducing the humidity. My humidistat never budged and the dehumidifiers were working constantly. After reading as much as I could about dehumidifiers and solving my problem I finally settled on the Impact because of energy usage, noise, and effectiveness at low temperatures. I called Sylvane about the model I was going to get, and I was thinking about one larger than the Impact because my basement is over 1,500 sq. ft. the person helping me told me not to worry, that the Impact would handle it with no problem, and I would have a quieter and more energy efficent dehumidifier, but I still worried. Since the device is not cheap I worried about the cost and still not having my problem fixed. I ordered the Impact and it arrived very quickly and in great shape. The first day I got it I set it up in the afternoon and the humidity started to drop that night. The next day it reached what I set the humidistat for and it actually turned off. I could not believe it! As the days went on it was off for longer and longer times until presently it is off much longer than it turns on. I can't be happier. I would recommend this to anyone with a humidity problem. I now think the Impact was worth every penny.

          Comments about Santa Fe Impact Dehumidifier:

          The delivery of the product was on time and not damaged. We are using the dehumidifier in the crawl space which has a dirt floor. I have been recovering from a mold issue from 7 months ago and still had some of the whispy cough etc. After a few days with this unit, I had noticed that my lungs were clearing up rather quickly. After a week, I noticed the crawl space greatly decreased in the moldly smell. I could even go down there! I even notice the house is fresher smelling, even after being closed up. It has been 2 weeks now and I no longer have that nagging cough in my lungs. The unit is heavy (150 lbs) so it did take two people to put it in place, but set up was easy enough for one. I do hear it somewhat, but it sounds like a quiet dishwasher running. I don't sleep well with noise and it is not bothering my sleep. I am very impressed with the unit and the reviews I had read before purchasing were mostly right on. I would recommend this product.

            Comments about Santa Fe Impact Dehumidifier:

            I had a damp basement with black mold and bad odors. After installing footing drains, external water barrier and performing mold remediation, I still needed to solve the remaining moisture problem, i.e high humidity levels, damp walls, etc. I installed the unit in October 2012, and within a week could see a substantial improvement. Current (Jan 2013) humidity levels are consistently maintained at 45-47%, which is below the mold threshold (yes, that means no mold) and the smell is gone. I was concerned about noise, which is why I picked this unit over some of the other choices, and I'm glad I did.

            After years of inadequate residential dehumidifiers, this has done the trick.

              Comments about Santa Fe Impact Dehumidifier:

              We bought this dehumidifier for our basement to help get rid of the "basement smell" After running it for a day the smell was almost completely gone. It took some time for the unit to catch up and get the humidity down to 50% but once it got there I realized how energy efficient this thing was. Our old unit would run all day and all night and still never get caught up. This unit only runs about 1 or 2 hours a day. (not nearly as much as the old one)

                Comments about Santa Fe Impact Dehumidifier:

                I purchased this dehumidifier for my basement. Just set the desired humidity level and let it do its job. Unit is really quiet and uses about 4.6Apms at around 70F temperature. Unit is heavy and big but that is how to achieve its efficiency. Initial out of pocket is high. It runs 10 hours per day with humidity set about 55%. Based on my rough calculation, the extra cost will be compensated in about 10 years by saving the electric bill. Just like a hybrid car that needs to be driven 100kmiles to compensate the extra premium. I should buy it a few years ago for extra saving on the cheap dehumidifer units. Cheap dehumidifiers even with EnergyStar are not efficient as a modified (drain condensation water instead of evaporating through condenser) window AC unit used as dehumidifier. The air bowing out of a cheap dehumidifier is hot, which means all you electric energy, while the Impact XT is barely warm. There is hugh difference. Go green and enjoy.

                  Comments about Santa Fe Impact Dehumidifier:

                  The Santa Fe Impact dehumidifier was purchased towards the end of spring. It initially worked continuously 24/7 for 3-4 days until it was able to achieve the set humidity level. Since then, it's been running intermittently as needed and has maintained the desired relative humidity in a fairly spacious unfinished basement, turning it to be the most comfortable space in the house, especially with the current heat and humidity in this summertime. Ultimately, the dehumidifier will be ducted when work to finish the basement is started. I'm hoping that it will still be as efficient in that setup.
