How Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers Function

It can be trickier to keep indoor moisture levels in check if your local climate is especially humid or dry. What’s more, your own HVAC system can also influence how much humidity is in the air. Whole-house humidity control systems reverse the effects of these outside influences. The core functionality of humidifiers and dehumidifiers are fairly similar, with the main difference being where the moisture is sent.

For humidifiers, water is evaporated using warm air just before it reaches your HVAC system. Dehumidifiers operate in reverse, cooling moist air until it condenses into water. Both humidifiers and dehumidifiers are installed near the HVAC system’s ventilation so that it evenly balances moisture throughout a home or commercial property. It also includes a plumbing connection so that it can quickly access water or drainage.

Whole-house humidifiers are integrated into to the property’s water lines for a continual supply of water it can evaporate for humidity. Some designs use the furnace’s blower motor while others use their own fan system for evaporation.

A dehumidifier will instead feature a condensate drain system to ensure removed moisture is fully expelled. It may be sent to a reservoir tank or drain right into your sump pump or sewer line. If deposited into a tank, it has to be periodically emptied.
