I’ve had a basement once… During that time, I found it the coolest part of the house…
I would think Ventilation & Dehumidification would be the most important things to ensure any drying at all.
Maybe a little heat is required if it’s very cold in there… especially during winter.

Cost-out doing that plus the electricity required… then put a Value on the Space being used & add it to the Total… worth using the space for something else? Compare that cost to having it dried elsewhere.
