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 operates.
The humidifier uses a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to improve moisture levels. The dehumidifier takes in moist 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 handle a single room at a time. A whole-home system also involves much less service than a mobile dehumidifier or humidifier.
