Prevent the STINK!
High humidity in basements creates an environment where mold and mildew can grow. Mildew has a milder, musty smell – the odor is usually compared to wet socks. Mold odor is stronger and pungent.
The key to mold and mildew control is moisture control.

More Energy Efficient
AprilAire – E100 Dehumidfiers have been recognized as ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient for 2022 – delivering 23% energy savings over conventional dehumidifiers. AprilAire Dehumidifiers cost about $216 less to run during the summer than a cheaper retail model.
Portable dehumidifiers need to cycle on and off more frequently, causing their compressors to wear down. In contrast, AprilAire Dehumidifiers drop the relative humidity 3% below the set point so it cycles on and off less, reducing the energy use and compressor cycling which extends the life of the compressor.
Quieter & Convenient Operation
AprilAire Dehumidifiers are installed away from the living space and are among the quietest on the market. While having a high removal capacity, AprilAire Dehumidfiers are still convenient to operate as there are no messy water containers to empty.DOWNLOAD BROCHURE
