How Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers Function

It can be difficult to keep indoor moisture levels in check if your local climate is notably humid or dry. In addition, your own HVAC system can further affect how much humidity is floating around. Whole-house humidity control systems reverse the effects of these outside forces. The operation of humidifiers and dehumidifiers are fairly similar, with the main distinction being where the moisture is sent.

When using humidifiers, water evaporates via warm air before it enters your HVAC system. Dehumidifiers operate in reverse, cooling moist air so it converts back into liquid moisture. Both humidifiers and dehumidifiers are fixed to your HVAC system’s ventilation so that it stabilizes moisture through your home or commercial property. It contains a plumbing connection so that it can quickly access water or drainage.

Whole-house humidifiers are usually hooked up to the property’s water lines for a continual supply of water it can use as humidity. Certain designs make use of the furnace’s blower motor while others depend on their own fan system to evaporate condensed moisture.

Alternatively, a dehumidifier features a condensate drainage system to see to it that extracted moisture is fully expelled. It might be sent to a reservoir tank or flow right into your sump pump or sewer line. In case it’s draining into a tank, it will need to be routinely emptied.

What Are Some Benefits of a Humidifier/Dehumidifier?

Depending on what kind of humidity control system you will need, a quality whole-house system can share numerous benefits to your indoor air quality, like:


  • Protects belongings from drying out: Introducing moisture into dry air can have a positive effect on a lot more than how comfortable you are. As an example, it helps prevent wood furniture, cabinetry and flooring from drying out, which often leads to splitting or cracking.
  • Offers relief for allergy symptoms and skin irritation: Low humidity can aggravate coughing and sneezing as well as rashes and other symptoms of dry skin. Humidifiers create steady relief to anyone struggling with skin or sinus issues.
  • Lessens risk of some illnesses: Sufficient humidity levels can help keep people healthy by keeping their sinuses from drying out. Dry, irritated sinuses are more likely to struggle with keeping illness-causing bacteria and viruses at bay.


  • Eliminates conditions for mold/mildew growth: Warm, humid air is the ultimate environment for a number of microorganisms and pests. Installing a whole-house dehumidifier will discourage mold, mildew and dust mites from taking root in the hidden corners of the property. For additional support eliminating microbes, consider a UV Germicidal light.
  • Inhibits wood rot and water damage: Moist air can wreak havoc on a wide range of materials inside, such as wood furniture and flooring along with paint. These materials can warp or rot from the inside due to excess moisture.
  • Minimizes musty odors: Once mold and rot take hold indoors, they can emit bad odors that are hard to eradicate. Stabilized humidity keeps your indoor air smelling clean and fresh.
