What is special about the Santa Fe? 1. All of the other brands that we have found, even those containing a defrost feature, do not recommend operation below 65 or 70 degrees. Many rooms, especially basements, often get down to colder temperatures. To eliminate dust mites and mold relative humidity must be lower than 50%. The Santa Fe can operate in temperatures as low as 55 degrees and still keep the relative humidity between 45-50%.2. The Santa Fe also adds a little heat to the basement air. So a cold, damp basement becomes a little warmer and a lot drier. Your basement won’t feel or smell like a basement!3. The Santa Fe removes 100 pints of water / day, three times as much as a standard dehumidifier. This water is directed through the gravity drain hose to a floor drain. The hose can be extended using 1/2″ pvc pipe. A condensate pump kit is available if gravity draining is not an option.4. They are free standing, plug in units, requiring no installation.5. They are E-star ratedThe Santa Fe model comes as either a basement utility-type unit, or the quieter RX model with a more finished appearance for in-room applications. The basement unit is 20″ wide x 36″ high x 17″ deep, 110 pounds. Applicable for areas up to 2500 square feet. All models are covered by a five year warranty. Additional Features Simple Controls – Easily adjust the knob to set your ideal humidity level from 20 to 80% and control fan operation with a single switch. 2-Stage Air Filtration – Together, a foam pre-filter and a pleated MERV-11 filter ensure efficient dehumidifying, protect the dehumidifier’s internal components, and capture irritating allergens. Auto Defrost – The Santa Fe Classic operates successfully in temperatures down to 55 degrees F. Should frost form on the internal components in lower temperatures, an automatic defrost system shuts off operation and quickly melts frost so the unit can resume normal operation. Quiet Operation – From 6 feet away, the Santa Fe Classic has a sound level of 58 to 62 decibels, which is roughly the equivalent of quiet to normal conversation. If you find that the Classic isn’t as quiet as you would like, consider purchasing the optional muffler kit for even quieter operation. Smooth-Roll Casters – Four smooth-rolling casters make it easy to move the dehumidifier from space to space.
