How Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers Function

It can be difficult to balance indoor humidity if your local climate is notably humid or arid. In addition, heating and cooling cycles can further affect how much humidity is in the air. Whole-house humidity control equipment reverses the impact of these outside influences. The design of humidifiers and dehumidifiers are somewhat similar, with the key distinction being where the moisture is going.

With humidifiers, water is evaporated by warm air prior to entering the HVAC system. Dehumidifiers operate in reverse, cooling moist air until it condenses into water. Both humidifiers and dehumidifiers are fixed to the HVAC system’s ventilation so that it stabilizes moisture across your home or commercial property. It comes with a plumbing connection so that it can quickly access water or drainage.

Whole-house humidifiers are usually hooked up to the property’s water main for a continual supply of water it can use as humidity. A few designs make use of the furnace’s blower motor while others depend on their own fan system to do so.

A dehumidifier will instead feature a condensate drain system to make sure extracted moisture is properly expelled. It could be stored in a reservoir tank or flush straight into your sump pump or sewer line. In case it’s moisture is stored in a tank, it has to be regularly emptied.
