What is a basement dehumidifier?
A dehumidifier dries the air by eliminating excess humidity and maintains an ideal relative humidity level in your home by controlling moisture. It works by allowing air to enter the machine, and then a fan forces the air over cold coils, removing the moisture. After the moisture is removed, the dry air is blown back into the basement.
