Carolina Heating is proud to offer our customers superior dehumidifiers from SANTA-FE Dehumidifiers.

Let’s look at the benefits of the Ultra Aire and Santa FE dehumidifiers.

Santa Fe and Ultra Aire by Santa Fe dehumidifiers boast superior filtration that’s scientifically proven to eliminate dust mites, mold and other problems caused by excess moisture in the air. The Environmental Protection Agency, American Lung Association and American Medical Association, recommend installing a dehumidifier in the basement / crawl space to help maintain humidity levels at 50% or less in your home.

Wood rot in floor joists and support piers occurs when the moisture content is above 28%. This can happen for several reasons, including water leaks, but the most common is when the relative humidity is above 70%. If wood in a crawl space absorbs too much moisture, it becomes susceptible to damage caused by rot or termites. This sort of damage reduces the wood’s ability support the weight of the structure above.
Pests are believed to cause more structural damage to homes each year than fires and storms combined. These unhealthy and damaging critters need water to survive. High humidity in the home not only provides them a life-sustaining water supply, but it’s also an invitation for further infestation and colonization.

Ultra Aire and Santa FE
Ultra Aire offers the industry’s most complete line of whole house ventilating dehumidifiers . All Ultra Aire dehumidifiers are energy efficient and provide dedicated dehumidification, mechanical outdoor air ventilation, and superior MERV 13 filtration to create an indoor environment that is healthy, comfortable, and protected.
