How Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers Operate

It can be tougher to maintain comfortable humidity levels if the local climate is notably humid or arid. In addition, the process of both heating and air conditioning can have an impact on how much humidity is floating around. Whole-house humidity control systems reverse the consequences of these outside forces. The design of humidifiers and dehumidifiers are somewhat similar, with the main difference being where the moisture is going.

With humidifiers, water is evaporated using warm air just before it reaches your HVAC system. Dehumidifiers operate in reverse, cooling humid air until it condenses into water. Both humidifiers and dehumidifiers are fixed to the HVAC system’s air ducts so that it evenly distributes moisture through your home or commercial property. It contains a plumbing connection so that it has easy access to water or drainage.

Whole-house humidifiers are integrated into to the property’s plumbing system for a constant supply of water it can use as humidity. Some designs take advantage of the furnace’s blower motor while others rely on their own fan system to do so.

A dehumidifier will instead feature a condensate drain system to ensure extracted moisture is completely expelled. It might be kept in a reservoir tank or flow directly into your sump pump or sewer line. When moisture is stored in a tank, it will need to be routinely emptied.
