  • Product Overview

    Santa Fe RX Dehumidifier - Made in the USA

    The Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier is among the most energy-efficient residential dehumidifiers on the market. This unit is an effective and attractive way to dehumidify your home or office space and prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Manufactured by U.S.-based Therma-Stor, the Santa Fe Rx is a free-standing dehumidifier that removes 74 pints of moisture per day at AHAM (80 degrees F, 60% relative humidity) and 148 pints of moisture at saturation (100 percent relative humidity). Under ideal conditions, this dehumidifier covers as much as 2,200 square feet, and in most applications, no assembly is required. Plus, the Rx can operate in temperatures as low as 56 degrees.

    Key Features

    Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifiers include numerous design features to help make dehumidification easier, more effective, and worry-free.

    • Automatic Dehumidification – Simply set your desired humidity level and the dehumidifier will run continuously until your desired humidity level is reached.
    • Internal Condensate Pump – An internal condensate pump automatically pumps collected moisture to a nearby drain or alternative location, providing near "set it and forget it" operation.
    • Onboard Dehumidistat – An onboard humidistat features positive On/Off settings and variable humidity control from 20 percent to 80 percent.
    • Independent Blower Switch – An independent blower switch means you can configure the fan to run continuously without dehumidifier operation. This setting is often useful for air circulation and air filtration.
    • MERV-11 Air Filtration – This dehumidifier is equipped with a standard MERV-11 pleated air filter, which is 65 percent efficient in removing air contaminants as small as 0.3 microns. Constant air filtration helps keep the RX running at peak efficiency for longer periods of time.
    • High Efficiency Operation – The Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier removes 5.2 pints of water per kilowatt hour of electricity, making it up to 80 percent more efficient than comparable dehumidifiers.
    • Quiet Operation – The Santa Fe Rx Whole House Dehumidifier is notably quieter during operation than comparable residential dehumidifiers. Therma-Stor product engineers made this possible by enhancing insulation inside of the dehumidifier and perfecting the airflow design to provide a long life of quiet performance.
    • Blends Well with Any Decor - This dehumidifier features a clean white cabinet design with a sturdy metal top cover. You can customize the housing to suit your interior space by painting, adding paneling, or affixing wallpaper.
    • Free Digital Humidity Gauge - After your purchase, get a free digital humidity gauge and thermometer  through a mail-in rebate.

    How It Works

    The high-capacity Santa Fe RX uses a refrigeration system to remove moisture from incoming air. Air is pulled into the unit through an inlet located on top of its housing and cooled to below its dew point as it passes across an evaporator coil. As a result of this cooling process, moisture is condensed into a liquid and directed into the drain hose, where it can be deposited into a nearby drain using the force of gravity or pumped to another location as high as 15 feet using the RX's internal condensate pump. Once the incoming air is cooled and dehumidified, it is used to pre-cool the next incoming air stream. This pre-cooling process increases the Rx' efficiency by as much as 200 percent. Following the pre-cooling stage, processed air is reheated as it passes over a condenser coil and discharged back into your environment using dehumidifier's air outlet.

    Get Better Filtration

    The Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier can be upgraded to include MERV-14, HEPA, and/or activated carbon filtration to help clean your indoor air. Adding the optional MERV-14 filter (sold separately) helps the unit capture 95 percent of particles and irritants sized at 0.1 microns and larger. When you add the optional HEPA filter (sold separately), the Rx dehumidifier filters out 99.97 percent of particles measuring 0.3 microns or larger, including mold, pollen, and other allergy triggers. Adding odor-absorbing activated carbon filtration (sold separately) helps remove odors, gases, and chemical traces from your indoor air. Please note that adding the optional HEPA or MERV-14 filters requires a one-time purchase of the optional filter housing.

    Eco-Friendly Dehumidification

    Santa Fe Rx Whole House Dehumidifiers are Energy Star-rated, which means they are an energy-efficient choice for your space that is easier on your finances and better the environment. Energy Star dehumidifiers are constructed with more efficient compressors, fans, and refrigeration coils than conventional models. As a result, the Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier uses 15 percent less energy to dehumidify your space than comparable non-Energy Star dehumidifiers. Additionally, the Santa Fe Rx now uses the eco-friendly refrigerant R-410A in its refrigeration system. This type of refrigerant will not contribute to the depletion of the ozone layer and is generally more reliable overtime than the previous R-22 refrigerant.

    Summary

    The Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier is a highly efficient residential dehumidifier designed to prevent mold, mildew and moisture damage in areas throughout your home. 

    What Customers Love

    • Superior Efficiency - The Rx removes more moisture per kilowatt hour than many conventional residential dehumidifiers at the same or an even lower operating cost. 
    • Reliable Long Life - Solid internal construction and a heavy-duty cabinet contribute to years of reliable moisture control.
    • Independent Fan Control - An independent fan switch allows you to run the fan continuously for better distribution of dehumidified air or only when the compressor is actively dehumidifying.

    Things To Consider

    • Size - Measuring 36 inches high by 20 inches wide and 17 inches deep, the Rx is not compact. However, efficient operation, high capacity, and unbeaten reliability make it a great choice for long-term humidity control in large spaces.

          Comments about Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier:

          I bought this 5 years ago after moving to New England, it was immediately obvious that there was a mould issue throughout many homes in the area. I managed to find one that was at least somewhat dry. This unit keeps it that way. It actually keeps my whole house dry in the summer along with my oversized air conditioner. It is on the edge of capability as it will often run for many hours. It is not that quiet and the pump on it is very loud. The worst thing about this unit was the shipping. It was bolted down onto a small flimsy skid and wrapped with skid wrap. Sylvane replaced the lid for me and I just had to touch up a few spots on the cabinate with spray paint.

            Comments about Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier:

            I bought this dehumidifier over 8 years ago. It has ran almost constantly since. My house was mostly destroyed during Hurricane Ike. I had the 5000 sqft home roughed in and enclosed but not finished. This dehumidifier has ran constantly ever since Ike, keeping the house at around 60% RH. I would highly recommend this system for anyone needing great dehumidity control. It is not 'quiet' but by no means is it too loud. I can sleep with it as 'white noise' about four feet away without trouble. I live in Bridge City, TX, (near Port Arthur, one of the wettest places in the US) with constant year round high humidity from the Gulf. Considering the adverse conditions this unit has had to endure, it was worth every penny. Even my contractors were highly impressed as it outperformed their commercial units that were much louder, bigger and higher rated (we conducted bucket tests to see which would fill more water into a bucket in a 24 hour period - the Sanda Fe RX won easily!)

            Now, needing a unit for my garage to keep tools from ruining in this high humidity area, I am not hesitating to by another Santa Fe product (this time the 'Classic Basement') despite some reviews saying the product will not last over time.

              Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier

              By Becca Martin

              from USA

              Comments about Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier:

              After being unable to keep the musty smell out of our basement with cheap dehumidifiers, we broke down and purchased the Santa Fe Rx. It's a little noisy, but other than that, it does a great job. The basement has never smelled so good. It proved especially helpful when our basement flooded 2 weeks after we made our purchase. It dried things out quickly and greatly minimized the damage.

              It's a pricey machine, but well worth it. I wish I hadn't spent all that money on other dehumidifiers in the past.

              Excellent high end dehumidifier. Quiet as advertised. Note it is much larger than a traditional cheaper dehumidifier. The carbon filter works great and keeps the mildew smell out of the rooms. Spend the extra money if you want top performance, quite sound, no mildew smell.

              Comments about Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier:

              This is the second home for which I've purchased this unit. The other home was a converted barn which still had some residual odor and moisture in the basement -- not a good combination. From day one, this unit removed all the problems and kept the basement (which used to be stables) bone dry and odor-free. We actually ran a business out of the basement for eight years. We sold that house (left the unit with the new owners) and bought a new unit for our home (with a finished basement) on the ocean. On foggy days, the basement would be very damp. But not any more. It's dry as a bone. The unit is well designed, not obtrusive, and the internal pump is perfect -- we drilled a hole in the wood of the casement window and all water exits into the sand.

              I purchased this to replace 2 cheaper ones we had running in our house. It has done a much better job than the ones we previously had and is much quieter, as well.

              Comments about Santa Fe Rx Dehumidifier:

              I bought this unit for my living room as I have too much humidity in my house. I have a mildewy smell and in the winter there is moisture and some sort of marks on my glass on the inside.Dehumidifier dries up the air and I don't have the water forming on my glass anymore. I didn't give it 5 stars as it is not whisper quiet, I can still hear it running. It sounds kind of like a fan.
