How Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers Function

It can be more difficult to keep indoor moisture levels in check if your local climate is especially humid or dry. What’s more, your own HVAC system can further affect how much humidity is in the air. Whole-house humidity control equipment reverses the consequences of these outside forces. The design of humidifiers and dehumidifiers are relatively similar, with the key difference being where the moisture is going.

With humidifiers, water is evaporated by warm air before it enters your HVAC system. Dehumidifiers work in reverse, cooling moist air until the moisture condenses into liquid water. Both humidifiers and dehumidifiers are placed against the HVAC system’s ductwork so that it evenly balances moisture across your home or commercial property. It also incorporates a plumbing connection so that it has easy access to water or drainage.

Whole-house humidifiers are usually hooked up to the property’s water main for a steady supply of water it can convert into humidity. A few designs require the furnace’s blower motor while others feature their own fan system to evaporate condensed moisture.

A dehumidifier will instead feature a condensate drainage system to make sure extracted moisture is properly expelled. It could be sent to a reservoir tank or flow directly into your sump pump or sewer line. If deposited into a tank, it will need to be periodically emptied.
