Options for dehumidifiers in basements
X-posted in Plumbing as well...
We will have a partially finished basement. I've always just used the regular humidifiers that you plug in and empty every day during the humid summer months (live in the midwest). I dislike having to empty the thing every day.
What are some other options? I know I could put it in the unfinished part next to a drain and just have it leak in there all day, but then I need to leave the door open all the time to the unfinished part. I don't really like the noise either.
Is there anything that could be built in? We will have around 2100 sq finished and 900 unfinished space that needs to be dehumidified. It is a walkout.
Any recommendations or advice?
