How a Whole Dehumidifier Works
A whole home dehumidifier is installed in your home’s HVAC system. It will pull air through it to cool the air until it turns into water droplets which fall into a drain pan. As the water droplets are caught, the dry air continues to pass through. This technology allows you to control your home’s humidity level to a specific setting to ensure that it suits your home’s humidity level. In the summer, a whole home dehumidifier can also help you save on energy since dry air feels cooler than warm air.
