What makes this unit different from other Santa Fe units?
Created with the same workhorse technology, this unit differs from other models in the Santa Fe line mostly in its looks. It comes in a stylish finished white housing with a sturdy metal top and smooth cabinet design. Because of this design, customers can use the unit “as is” in their finished basement or living room. They can also choose to decorate the cabinet with paint, paneling, or wallpaper.
With such a small pleasant physical profile, you can easily set the unit up wherever you need. Besides finishing basements and living rooms, these units are also used in studios, galleries, libraries, offices, and any place where stylish dehumidification is needed.
How large of an area can this unit cover?
Under standard conditions, this unit can cover as much as 2,200 square feet. However, when it comes to large spaces, it's best to get a consultation on your specific environment. Call our product experts at (800) 934-9194 for a free recommendation.

What temperature does this unit operate in?
