The Santa Fe Compact 2 Dehumidifier is specifically designed for crawlspaces. At 12" tall and 12" wide, the Santa Fe Compact can fit where no other dehumidifier can. Innovative features such as integrated vertical or horizontal exhaust outlets offer flexibility even in exceptionally tight spaces, while the optional condensate pump, hang kit, and duct kits facilitate installation in the most challenging applications. No conventional dehumidifier can perform as efficiently and effectively in crawlspaces as the Santa Fe Compact. High Efficiency – Exceeds Energy Star® efficiency requirements. Low Temperature Operation – Engineered for crawlspaces, and the temperature and air flow issues that they present. When many conventional dehumidifiers have stopped removing water from the air, the Santa Fe Compact keeps on protecting you and your home. Superior Air Filtration – MERV-8 filtration is standard on the Santa Fe Compact. This superior level of air filtration also keeps the Santa Fe Compact working at peak efficiency for longer than other devices with cheaper designs. Auto Restart – Santa Fe dehumidifiers will automatically restart at the original setting after a power outage.

I have concluded, that these Santa Fe dehumidifiers, even though the build quality (from the outside at least) appears very very good, are really no better or worse than the much more economical models on the market today. I suspect most of the internal working parts (compressor, coil, evaporator, switches, etc…) are built cheaply on foreign soil, just like all the rest. And, in addition to this, the direct results of my personal tests of these Santa Fe units (side by side) against a lower capacity rated Frigidaire unit, proved them to be inferior in moisture removal by a substantial margin, and further still, you will definitely need to purchase a quality digital humidistat instrument to actually know what the "approximate" values of the humidity control knobs really are. In my case, the Classic Santa Fe had be set at 80% to achieve 50% actual humidity, whereas the Horizontal Santa Fe had to be set at 20% to achieve 50% actual humidity ….. unbelievably Mickey Mouse! I do not recommend them, nor would I purchase one again.
So I bought the Santa Fe Compact 2 for my new house - running for around 2 months now.
Regarding function: It totally dried out the 800 sq ft basement. Before humidity was around 68%, the dirt in the crawlspaces was saturated, and there were beads of water under the plastic sheeting laid over the soil. Now the dehumidifer is holding the humidity down at 49% and the soil in the crawlspaces is dry. It's probably keeping moisture down overall in the house as the furnace exchanges air between the basement and the other floors, however, I haven't done any objective testing to see if this is true.
Regarding installation: I purchased the Santa Fe ceiling suspension kit and have the unit hanging from the basement ceiling joists. This works well at stopping any vibration. I can't normally hear it from the main floor although obviously your mileage may vary depending on the flooring material in your house. On a really quiet night I might hear it switch on and off, however, it's actually quieter than my 16-year-old furnace and the furnace condensate pump.
I ran the supplied condensate hose down to the furnace condensate pump. I needed to buy a $1 hose clamp (from the 'Orange Store') to properly secure the hose to the dehumidifier. It would have been nice if Sante Fe had included that. It's important to make sure that the hose immediately slopes away so water does not build up around the outlet, and also to make sure that the unit is level. At first I must have had some water flow back into the unit because it dripped out the bottom of the unit casing after an hour. Once I corrected the hose and leveled the unit everything was fine.
Regarding appearance: Overall the unit has a sturdy feel. I wouldn't describe it as beautiful appliance however it is definitely solidly engineered which I think is appropriate for basement equipment. It's presently listed under "Kitchen" on Amazon (which they might adjust at some point) however I would not put it in a kitchen or anywhere in a finished part of the house; there are other more appliance-looking dehumidiers that would be more appropraite for those locations.
