How a Whole Home Humidifier or Dehumidifier Works
We add a whole-home dehumidifier or humidifier as part of your HVAC system and air ducting. It controls humidity as your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner works.
The humidifier involves a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to increase moisture levels. The dehumidifier takes in wet air and cools it. Then it transfers additional moisture into a pan or drain.
Both systems are more effective than their portable counterparts, which can only take care of an individual room at a time. A whole-home system also involves a lesser amount of upkeep than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
