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 runs.
The humidifier involves a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to improve moisture levels. The dehumidifier takes in wet air and cools it. Then it moves extra moisture into a pan or drain.
Both systems are more efficient than their portable equivalents, which can only treat one room at a time. A whole-home system also needs much less maintenance than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
