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 operates.
The humidifier involves a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to increase moisture levels. The dehumidifier pulls in humid air and cools it. Then it shifts extra moisture into a pan or drain.
Both systems are more useful than their compact equivalents, which can only handle a single room at a time. A whole-home system also requires not as much service than a portable dehumidifier or humidifier.
