We are selling our house and just moved about 30 mins away. The finished basement had a dehumidifier but no hose because we don't have a drain. Unfortunately due to distance it is not feasible to go and empty the dehumidifier regularly and the basement is getting a musty smell. We do have a window in the finished area and I'm wondering if it makes sense to get a window AC? Any other suggestions? The only other thing I can think of is a dehumidifier with a hose that routes to the window but I'm not sure if that is a good idea?
If you can run a small hose out the window, get one of these Little Giant pumps.
I have my AC in my basement and it dumps the condensate in there and then gets pumped out via small hose. Works great.
