Most people throughout Minnesota and North Dakota know us as basement waterproofers. We come in, dry out basements, and install drainage systems to collect and drain any water that may enter in the future. Innovative Basement Authority does do those things — our BasementGutter perimeter drainage system and SafeDri Triple sump pumps come second to none — but did you know about our line of basement dehumidifiers?
A dehumidifier is an important component in keeping your basement completely free of moisture. It will remove water from the air and ensure that your basement is protected from mold and allergens that can enter the upstairs and harm your family. At Innovative Basement Authority, we only install the best products into peoples’ homes. That’s why we use dehumidifiers. Here’s what makes our dehumidifier so great:
Ours Is A High-Efficiency Dehumidifier
We wouldn’t recommend an appliance for your basement unless it was high-efficiency. At Innovative Basement Authority, we take helping homeowners save money seriously, and that means only offering the best, most reliable products. When you use a model, the cost of removing 1 pint of water from the air is just over 3 cents! Homeowners who use lower efficiency models pay upwards of 10 cents per pint, making Dehumidifier a much more economical appliance.
Our Dehumidifier Comes In 2 Models
Innovative actually offers two different versions of the dehumidifier. The upright model stands tall and can only be installed in spaces 40” high or more. It’s perfect for basement spaces, where a larger and more powerful dehumidifier might be needed.
If you’re looking for a dehumidifier for a crawl space, we’ve got you covered too! Our Upright Model measures 19” tall, so it’s perfect for most spaces. This model is also incredibly powerful and, in combination with CrawlSeal crawl space encapsulation, will protect your crawl space against the elements for the long haul.
Our Dehumidifier Drains Automatically
The most common dehumidifiers we’ve come across in over a decade of basement waterproofing are the kind that require you to drain the water yourself. Forgetting to do this means the dehumidifier stops working, reverting your home back to its original humid state. This puts your home more at risk for mold and other allergens infiltrating the upstairs from the basement, and it also means you wasted money on a dehumidifier that doesn’t run when you need it to.
We understand that your busy lifestyle takes precedence over making sure your dehumidifier is working properly, and we want to help you enjoy your free time even more. The dehumidifer can easily be installed to drain water out of your home, so that you don’t have to venture down just to dump out some water. The peace of mind that comes with Dehumidifier is just an added bonus.
Our Dehumidifier Filters Mold and Dust
One of the biggest reasons to get a basement dehumidifier in the first place is to protect yourself from mold, dust, and other allergens. The dehumidifier makes it easy. Both the upright model and the model contain filters that can remove tiny mold spores and dust from the air. Both moisture and mold spores will be removed from the air, significantly decreasing the likelihood of mold ever forming in your basement.
How would you like to know that your family is safe from the harmful effects of mold and allergens? How would you like to know that your basement — and everything stored within it — is protected against moisture? Avoiding health problems and property damage are two great benefits of installing a dehumidifier, but you also get a quality product with expert installation. If you want to rid your basement or crawl space of humidity once and for all, call us now!
