What is the best deal you can find on a crawlspace dehumidifier?
Like many other homeowners in my area, crawlspace humidity has become an expensive problem that needs fixing. Along with sealing and insulating my crawlspace (DIY instead of paying a contractor $10k+) I intend to install a permanent dehumidifier. The space is approx. 1900 sq. ft. with an average height of 3.5 ft (ranging from 6 to 2 ft). The issue for me is that [I'm cheap] I like to window shop and compare prices/find deals, but crawlspace/whole home dehumidifiers aren't exactly something you can walk into stores and compare. I have looked very hard at the Santa Fe Advance 2 (cheapest at Jon-Don for $1252 with free freight), but I would like your suggestions before I pull the trigger. What say you, wootizens? Any thoughts, other models, or other retailers I should be looking at?
