How a Whole Home Dehumidifier Works
A whole home dehumidifier is typically installed directly into your HVAC system. As your dehumidifier senses high humidity levels, it works to remove the excess moisture from the air before it is then transferred throughout your home. As excess moisture is removed from your air, it is captured in a tank or water line.
