"Ask Adam" Adam has been in the HVAC industry for over 40 years. He has been involved in all aspects of the business from service to sales. His main interest is in customer comfort. How Much Water Is In Your Basement? Adam Kem, Owner Official Heating & Cooling Typically, most homeowners equate failed sump pumps or torrential downpours with water issues in their basements. Even though they are serious issues requiring immediate attention, there is a more pervasive and sinister problem that is often overlooked or neglected. That culprit is humidity. It is definitely needed in the winter to be more comfortable, but it is a problem in the summer. The ideal humidity level in the summer should be 50% or less. Anything above that can contribute to the growth of dust mites, fungi, bacteria, mold and mildew. By controlling the humidity in the basement, you will reduce it throughout the house. Your A/C system won't have to run as long and your overall comfort will be much better. A professional quality dehumidifier can remove over 95 pints of water per day. Depending on the size of your basement it may take 10-14 days to bring the relative humidity down to 50%. Imagine how much water that is which you never thought was even there. There is a major recall for almost all portable dehumidifiers sold at most home centers and online sites. There have been incidents of sponta- neous combustion on these units that have caused house fires. Cus- tomers can collect a cash refund on these units. We have a complete list at our office. If your unit is on the recall list we can credit the amount towards a professional unit that is guaranteed for 5 years.
