I'd be grateful for any suggestions or advice. I live in a home that was built rather well. It has a daylight basement ( 1/2 the basement is below grade 1/2 ground level). I use a dehumidifier but only for a few months during the summer. In less than 8 years every dehumidifier(4 of them) has not lasted more that 1 and a half years. All have been replaced or reimbursed by either manufacture or credit card warranty.
Unit 1 was a Whirlpool. Units 2,3 and 4 were GE. I really don't want to spend 1,000 plus for a Santa Fe because it will only get light use. Has anyone had a better experience with these beasts that they would be willing to make a recommendation?
