Basement Dehumidifier

Problems like excessive humidity, mold, and musty odors are common in basements, but they should not be considered normal. They can take a toll on your home and health, but there’s an effective solution. 

Ohio Basement Authority’s AquaStop™ Basement Air System is an efficient dehumidifier and filtration system that eliminates humidity and creates a dry, comfortable basement. 

As the leading authority on basement waterproofing and humidity control, we specialize in complete basement solutions to give you a healthy home. 

This page guides you through our proprietary whole-home solutions and how they improve your health and quality of life so you can make the best decision for your home. 

Ohio Basement Authority and The Basement Guys have now merged.

What is the AquaStop™ Basement Dehumidifier? 

The AquaStop™ Basement Air System is a state-of-the-art dehumidifier designed to combat basement humidity effectively. 

It can remove up to 100 pints of water from the air daily and circulate over 300 cubic feet of dry air per minute. The system’s design is compact, avoiding the bulkiness of conventional dehumidifiers while providing top-notch performance. 

Our system is part of our complete basement waterproofing and humidity control solution. We address water seepage issues with interior drainage and sump pumps, and vapor intrusion with a thick wall vapor barrier. Then, we install the dehumidifier to remove the remaining humidity from the air. 

This comprehensive approach provides a dry, healthy environment in your basement and throughout your home. 

Signs You Need a Basement Dehumidifier 

If you’re facing any of the following issues, it’s a sign that you need a dehumidifying solution: 

Identifying humidity issues early and promptly seeking professional intervention is crucial to preventing more severe problems from developing.  

Contact Ohio Basement Authority when you notice any of these symptoms or suspect something is wrong with your basement. Quick action saves you time, money, and headaches. 

Is a Basement Dehumidifier Necessary? 

Yes, a basement dehumidifier is not merely a luxury but a vital necessity. Lingering humidity leads to mold growth, structural damage, escalating repair costs, and an unhealthy home. 

We do not recommend DIY repairs, as conventional dehumidifiers are not equipped to handle large basements and copious amounts of moisture. They require frequent emptying, as they run continuously. 

Waterproofing alone does not completely eliminate dampness. Our AquaStop™ Basement Air System is required to actively drain moisture from the air and control the environment. 

But it’s just one piece of the puzzle; it is a crucial part of Ohio Basement Authority’s whole-home solution to ensure you don’t face these challenges alone. 

What Are the Benefits of the AquaStop™ Basement Air System? 

The AquaStop™ Air System offers numerous advantages, including: 

  • Powerful Moisture Removal: With an industry-leading 100 pint per day capacity, the AquaStop™ Air System quickly reduces humidity levels. Its high airflow circulates dry air throughout your basement. 
  • Energy-Efficient Operation: Our unit costs less to operate than other dehumidifiers, making it an energy-efficient option. 
  • Mold Prevention: Our basement dehumidifier prevents mold growth on surfaces by maintaining a relative humidity level below 60%. 
  • Odor Reduction: Stale, musty odors are eliminated as moisture levels decrease. The AquaStop™ Basement Air System filters the air and leaves your basement smelling fresh. 
  • Whole-Home Benefits: Your entire home becomes drier and healthier as humidity is drained from your basement. Moisture is less likely to spread upstairs. 

It’s crucial to use our proprietary solutions and expert installation services to maximize these benefits. We’ve developed our products to be the best in the market, far exceeding what any big box store can offer. 

How the AquaStop™ Basement Air System Works 

When integrating the AquaStop™ Basement Air System as part of a whole-home solution, our approach is as follows: 

  • Inspect the basement and assess dehumidification requirements 
  • Cover basement walls with a vapor barrier 
  • Install an interior drainage system 
  • Place a sump pump in the basement’s lowest point 
  • Connect the interior drains to the sump pump 
  • Position the dehumidification unit to maximize airflow circulation 
  • Connect the air system to the drainage system or condensate hose to drain away water 
  • Adjust settings and program digital controls 
  • Perform testing to ensure optimal moisture removal 

With 15 years of experience, Ohio Basement Authority technicians expertly install the AquaStop™ Basement Air System for superior performance. We also understand that every home is unique and requires a different approach. We tailor our products and processes to meet your home’s needs.
