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 runs.
The humidifier has a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to raise moisture levels. The dehumidifier takes in humid air and cools it. Then it transfers extra moisture into a pan or drain.
Both systems are more effective than their movable equivalents, which can only handle an individual room at a time. A whole-home system also needs a lesser amount of upkeep than a mobile dehumidifier or humidifier.
