Install a window mounted exhaust fan if you can discharge to the outside of the house surrounding atmosphere.But undercut the door of the batroom to allow air coming in into the room.Alternatively firt a door grill 600 x 150 mm size which is more expensive.THe size of the fan should be 50 to 100 l/s of air flow.

How to raise the value of a home with a basement by a good percentage

If you are trying to sell a house with a basement and want to include rooms in the basement in the advertising their must be a way to exit the house from the basement. for a few thousand dollars now you can add the rooms and raise the value significantly. Egressed windows are windows in a basement large enough to qualify as an exit. You will have to call a concrete cutting contractor and have him cut out the window size. then install the window. now instead of your add saying a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with a basement. You can say a 2 leve, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house!

Top of coil is freezing up and unit is not working to pull moisture out. Unit is two years old and coil is clean and filter looks brand new. Should I just throw it in the dumpster or is it worth fixing?

Dan, it may be a case, that the ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 Degrees F. This is particularly true in basement applications. Raising it up off the floor onto a sturdy table or counter to, that can handle the weight of the unit, plus a full tank of water, should help.

Also, if there is not enough clear air space around the unit while in operation, it will not work as it should. Maintain a minimum of at least 12" of clear air space around the entire unit.

It would be unusual, but the compressor may be low on R14 Refrigerant Gas. I say unusual, because your dehumidifier is only 2 years old. The more likely cause, would be that the Defrost Sensor has failed, thereby allowing the coil to freeze over.

But, before you throw it in the dumpster (which by the way is illegal, due to the freon gas), Turn the master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and allow it to thaw completely, before trying to do anything else to it.You may want to put some old towels under it, to catch any dripping water.

Once the unit has thawed completely and you have reassembled anything you may have removed, Take the unit into the bathroom, turn the shower on hot enough to generate steam. Plug the unit in, turn it on and set the humidity extraction level at 32%. Do not tunr on the bathroom exhaust fan (if you have one) and close any windows in the bathroom. As you exit the bathroom close the door and wait 15 - 20 minutes before returning. Once you do, turn the shower OFF and allow the unit to run an additional 5 minutes. Then check the bucket for signs of water. If you find some, the unit is now working as it should.

If you find no signs of water, the problem lies in what I described above. It can be repaired, but the cost may be almost as high as buying a new unit. Unless, you can do it yourself.

Hope all this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Is there a way to vent a basement bathroom without cutting into the cement foundation

What is in the room above the basement bathroom?
And how large is the diameter of the vent pipe you need to run?
Do you have a maximum number of elbows, and runs of feet maximum you can't exceed?

Is the Frame wall above the foundation, accessible by going up thru the ceiling of the bathroom, and the elbowing over and into the outrside frame wall at that point?-- and then up a ways, and then out thru the outside wall?

Another possibility would be: How far to a window, or vent already in the basement?-- Could you run the piping there, and then out?

How thick is the concrete wall?-- Is it reinforced Concrete-- or just Masonry Block wall? A block wall is not as hard to get thru--

I know I asked a lot of questions-- but maybe it helps you think thru your options?

Le4t me know if I can help further.

Every winter water drips from my bathroom ceiling mounted extractor fan, worse when there is bad condensation. The vent goes straight up and up through the loft space and out of the roof, there appears to...

condensation is created by 2 exteme temperature change.
looks like the loft space is colder than the rest of the house.
first make sure there is not blockage in the vent. then warp the vent with fiberglass as much as you can. it doesn't matter what R value the fiberglass is. just enough to cut the temperture change.
you still going to need a exhust fan in the bathroom.
