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 increase moisture levels. The dehumidifier attracts humid air and cools it. Then it transfers additional moisture into a pan or drain.
Both systems are more useful than their portable equals, which can only handle one room at a time. A whole-home system also involves not as much maintenance than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
