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 manages humidity as your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner operates.
The humidifier uses a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to raise moisture levels. The dehumidifier pulls in humid air and cools it. Then it transfers additional moisture into a pan or drain.
Both systems are more efficient than their portable equivalents, which can only take care of a single room at a time. A whole-home system also requires not as much maintenance than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
