No! Dehumidifiers vary tremendously. The capacities for residential dehumidifiers are measured in pints of water removed per day at standard conditions of (80°F and 60%RH) as determined by the American Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM). This is done so that there is a level playing field for the purpose of comparison.
At those conditions the capacity of the Santa Fe Classic is 110 pints per day, while most standard residential units range from 20-65 pints of water removal per day. That's a huge difference, but it's only part of the story, because most dehumidifiers are put in basements or crawlspaces which are cooler than 80°. Basement and crawlspace temperatures are normally in the 55° range and it's much harder to remove moisture from cooler air, therefore the water removal capacity of the standard residential unit will be diminished significantly.
It's not uncommon to see two standard residential units running in a basement, even so, failing to control moisture, while running up large electric costs for the owner. The entire Santa Fe line of dehumidifiers are specifically designed for basements and crawlspaces. The Santa Fe Classic for example uses a high capacity (275 cfm) blower that moves air in ways a conventional unit can't and the vertical configuration and flow-down design perform exceptionally well in basements.
A large capacity dehumidifier is necessary to ensure that enough moisture is removed at the real world temperature of your basement or crawlspace to prevent mold, mildew and bacterial growth. The Santa Fe Classic is a large capacity dehumidifier designed for cooler applications, such as basements and the superior energy efficiency of the Classic will use less energy than two conventional units, while producing solid moisture control results!
