Sentinel HD55 Dehumidifier for Basement
Sentinel HD 55 is the best dehumidifier for the basement. It can also be used in crawlspaces and other enclosures. The dehumidifier comes fitted with a humidistat whose job is to monitor the conditioned space. The idea is to star dehumidifying when the humidity goes above any configured point. It works in conditioned spaces and helps to regulate the atmosphere of a place. It does this by withdrawing moisture from the atmosphere and reducing the dampness in the surrounding spaces.
The unit comes with great dehumidification features. The most conspicuous ones are:
1. Hot Gas Valve Defrosting system - it ensures that the ice clears quickly from the coils at an operating temperature of 2℃.
2. It is quick to access to service-it allows the owner to open and service it.
3. It is COP listed – the unit is ETL, CE, cETL approved. Also, it is the most efficient dehumidifier on the market. Because of these reasons, it will soon get a patent to protect the invention.
4. Remote humidistat design- This is a critical feature that makes the unit an ideal one if you will be using it in an area where remote sensing is required. It comes with an optional duct that is easy to mount. The flanges make installing and connecting it to the existing ducting system easier.
It is designed to work in low-temperature areas. This is why it is the most appropriate dehumidifier to be used in crawl spaces and areas with air flow issues.
It is remotely controlled. – The unit’s remote control comes with a normal retome function that insulates it from noise. The remote control can be used as a switch and gives you the option of choosing an appropriate humidity sensor.
High capacity - It is a high capacity basement dehumidifier designed for restoration purposes. In fact this is the main reason why the unit can be relied on to remove moisture through the refrigeration process. It is compact in size, a thing that makes it ideal for small spaces application
Rotary compressor- it ensures that extraction is maximum at the lowest possible cost.
Multiple ducting options- it ensures that the unit extracts 55 pints of water each day.
It is compact and small in size- This makes it easier to install it in areas with limited installation spaces like the basement.
This is the lightest and the smallest crawl space dehumidifier you will get out there. The humidity sensor ensures that short cycling goes away as quickly as possible. It gives easy access to the units’ internal parts. The unit draws a current of 3.9 amps making it the most economical dehumidifier on the market.
How to use it
Place the unit anywhere including in the unfinished part of the basement. Connect a duct tube on the unit’s collar so that it can supply air to the unfinished section of the basement. A return vent should be placed on the wall that separates the finished and the unfinished section. It allows air to circulate around the basement. The job of the passive grill is to ensure that the part that is still under construction does not suffer from negative pressure. Also, you need to ensure that all the doors to the basement are open. It will allow maximum air circulation in all the rooms.
How the Unit Operates
You will select the relative humidity you want. It uses the integral humidistat to monitor the space and conditions. When the humidity level rises beyond the set levels, the unit energizes. When this happens, it draws air across the evaporator coils. Typically, the coils will be cooler than the dew point of the air. Moisture will then condense out of the air. The remaining air will then be reheated and distributed into the condenser coil. It will then be redistributed in the house.
Installing The Unit
Ensure that you use vapor barriers to seal off the areas that you want to control its humidity levels. If it is the crawl spaces, check and ensure that all the vents are sealed.
Also, ensure that the environment in which you want to install the dehumidifier is not corrosive. Notice that we have some liquid barriers that dry through solvent evaporation. So it is your mandate to ensure that the barrier is dry and that the area is sealed.
Before using the dehumidifier, check and ensure that it is placed on a level surface. Avoid placing it to a vapor barrier.
Set the desired humidity level using the up and down button. Choose the most comfortable level for you. It should range between 36-90%. Once you set your point, the machine will stop dehumidifying as long as the set point has been reached. When indoor humidity rises above the set level, the machine automatically starts operating.
You can choose to set the machine into continues mode. This can be done by using the up and down arrow. Check and ensure you see the continues button illuminate green. It indicates that the unit has been switched to a continuous mode. You will see CO on the display screen.

How to install the unit with both the return and supply kit
Start the installation job by placing the sentinel HD55 in any of the unfinished areas of the basement. You can also place it near drain access to allow for draining via the pump. You may use a supply and return duct kit to distribute the air from the dehumidifier to an open section of the basement the return kit should then be used to draw air back via the dehumidifier.
Ensure that the supply and the return are 10 feet away from each other. This way, it allows the unfinished area to dry.
You should use the remote control normal retome function to insulate the noise from the senser switch. You can also choose to use the remote control and the humidity senser from the unit.
The basement doors should be kept open to allow for maximum air circulation in the other rooms of the house.
