With a capacity of up to 90 pints per day, and an efficiency more than two times that of other residential dehumidifiers, Santa Fe Rx is the solution for moisture-extreme conditions. And the Rx is energy star rated, using on only 6.3 amps to dehumidify areas up to 2200 sq. ft. You will be astounded by the reduction in humidity in your home, school or office, and you will breathe easier knowing dust mites and mold can’t survive where humidity is below 50%.
Place the Santa Fe Rx cabinet anywhere in a room that allows you to direct the drain hose to a sink, bathtub, window or other outside drainage outlet.Numerous medical studies prove that house dust mites can’t survive in low relative humidity (below 50%), and mold will cease to grow without adequate moisture as well.
The problem in most homes is that only wintertime humidity levels are low enough to kill dust mites and stop the growth of mold. Now you can recreate those low levels of humidity in the middle of summer with the Santa Fe Rx whole house dehumidifier.
You know you need the Santa Fe Rx if you can’t lower your home’s humidity to below 50% with a smaller dehumidifier or if your home typically has very high levels of humidity for extended periods of time. An accurate humidity gauge will give you all the information you need.
Santa Fe Rx also purifies your home’s air while it dehumidifies. The standard air filtration is provided by a pleated polyester and cotton blend media filter located at the air intake at the top of the unit.
The intake filter is designed to allow optimum airflow, while still filtering out many airborne particles. The pre-filter should be changed about every 6 months. An optional HEPA filter is also available for those who want the best air filtration. The HEPA filter fits in a special housing mounted on the back of the Santa Fe Rx cabinet. The efficiency rating of this filter is 99.97% down to .3 microns. The HEPA should be replaced every 1-2 years.
The Santa Fe Rx utilizes refrigeration to cool the incoming air stream to below its dew point as it passes through the dehumidification (evaporator) coil. This cooling results in the removal of moisture (latent heat) and reduction of the temperature (sensible heat). The cooled and dried air is used to pre-cool the incoming air stream resulting in up to a 200% increase in overall efficiency. After the pre-cooling stage the processed air is reheated by passing through the condenser coil. The latent heat removed by the evaporator coil is returned to the air stream at this stage as sensible heat, resulting in an overall increase in temperature from the incoming air. The Santa Fe Rx requires no special installation - just plug it in and hook up the drain hose.
