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 regulates humidity as your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner runs.
The humidifier uses a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to improve moisture levels. The dehumidifier pulls in humid air and cools it. Then it shifts excess moisture into a pan or drain.
Both systems are more efficient than their portable counterparts, which can only take care of an individual room at a time. A whole-home system also requires a lesser amount of upkeep than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
