He is correct .. the dehumidifier can cause aquarium water to evaporate, depending on the RH setting you set the dehumidifier to. The lower the RH, the more evaporation, however .... a hood will help to slow this .. but evaporation is inevitable. Another thing to consider is the temp of the basement .. which are generally cooler on average, so your heater ... if you have one will be on longer. Really shouldn't make much of a difference however as long as you have a good heater.
