    Are fire dampers expensive/complicated to install?

    What are your thoughts on the Santa-fe compact unit recommended by someone else? I notice it is quite small, which would make it an easier fit in our already cramped furnace room. How big do the ducts have to be coming out of the dehumidifier?

    The duct kit is 8" duct. Not sure of cost in your area for fire damper.
    This our smallest unit. I am sure it will dramatically improve the humidity level in your basement. If you want whole house humidity control of 50%Rh, the Santa FE advance may be a better choice.

    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"
