How a Whole Home Humidifier or Dehumidifier Works
We put in 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 uses 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 useful than their portable counterparts, which can only take care of one room at a time. A whole-home system also requires much less upkeep than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
