Best Basement Dehumidifier

The best basement dehumidifier of course should be safe.  With over 6 million dehumidifiers recalled for safety issues in the USA alone it should not be taken for granted.  A basement dehumidifier needs to work all day and every day even when you are at work.  Often, it will either need an internal pump or basement sump to pump the collected water to a higher level where it can be drained away. 






The issue is many people are using their basement as extra living space so floor space is a premium.  This area has become usable living space decorated as the rest of the home.  We use the dehumidifier to collect water in the air that attacks the basement furnishings and sometimes wall decoration in extremes.  However, what happens if the pump on the dehumidifier or sump fails? What happens if the drain pipe blocks or kinks?   These issues can cause water to flood from the dehumidifier itself ruining carpets and furnishings.  If you don't use continuous drainage then the solution is empty the water container every day.  This time you need to take from your day to remember to do even during holidays.

Apart from flood risks there is the issue of physical space a normal dehumidifier takes up not to mention the noise it makes.  Common compressor dehumidifiers make low noise tones that humans tend to find irritating.  The air is from normal dehumidifiers is exhausted almost at face height when seated making & can pose a noisy irritation with wind, noise and a draught that can feel cool on the face & neck. 

In the past 5 years over 6million dehumidifiers have been recalled due to safety concerns.  The biggest issue is that an item that generally states in most user manuals “do not use unattended” is indeed being used unattended.

Commercial grade products are designed to work all day and every day but in the past they have often been too large, noisy & simply too expensive for normal home use.



Life & Death. A home dehumidifier was never designed to work 247 unattended. Only industrial grade units with specifically designed safety features are designed to run all day every day. If a dehumidifier is designed to be used for home use only check your insurance policy before putting it next to your yatch or treasured boat. Get a DryBoat® to be safe.

DryFan® is the ultimate result of 30 years of product development.

This unassuming dehumidifier, the size of child's shoe box can get over these basement issues.  It can be mounted on a wall or even upside down on a ceiling out of the way and limiting draughts.  Moisture from the room is vented away automatically at the dryness level you set with no risk of flooding.  DryFan® makes as much noise as a tower home computer.  DryFan® is commercial grade so it safe

No normal home dehumidifier can work from -20°C (-4°F) to +40°C (104°F) so even if your holiday home is left unheated over the winter  DryFan® will keep it safe.

Ever wondered why a normal dehumidifieir is rated at sometimes 25 or 30 litrers but the water container is often less than 5 litres?   Using patented technology, DryFan® can be 4 times more effective than normal dehumidifiers at normal home conditions.  The reason why a lower water extraction figures are quoted for a Dryfan compared to normal dehumidifiers is down to how they are tested.  Common basment dehumidifiers are rated at high temperatures around 35°C (95°F) and high humidity levels similar to Amazon jungle.  Performance at normal conditions is much less hence the water container size is often good enough for 24 hr operation.
