You may be asking yourself…what is the difference between a humidifier and dehumidifier. A humidifier simply adds moisture into the air when it gets too dry. Usually when the humidity level hits below 35% that is when moisture is added. On the other hand, a dehumidifier removes moisture from the air when it gets too humid.
During the winter months, humidifiers are a great option since the air becomes too dry in your home. You may have experienced headaches, dry skin, allergies, or even nosebleeds during winter months. This can be caused by low humidity. Other than health concerns, low humidity can also affect wooden furniture to crack or even get abnormally dry.
If you end up going with a humidification system this winter, just remember, it is really important to keep it clean!
Dehumidifiers are a great option for areas of extreme heat. If you operate out of your business and have several computers or machines running there, this may be a much needed item for you. Get a dehumidifier to help reduce dust mites, mold growth, and even mildew.
There are 4 types of dehumidifiers:
Material that extracts moisture from the air by rotating it through the system and utilizes heat to draw it out.
This one is quiet, but not the most efficient. It uses a heat pump to capture water vapor through condensation.
- Ionic Membrane
Electrolysis. You may remember this from your classes. It’s basically the act of removing water vapor until there isn’t anymore visible water. Little to no maintenance on this one.
The most popular one for the last, just to make sure you were reading ???? This system has a fan which captures moist air through a coil, which then uses condensation to remove water from the air. It then releases the dry air back.

Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner Filter
- Your heating and cooling system is the unsung hero of your home, constantly running in the background to keep you cozy and comfortable. As air passes through the cooling coil, mold spores, bacteria and fungi stick to its damp surfaces. Buildup of these contaminants can reduce system performance and lead to the release of harmful mold spores and unpleasant odors into your home. To help alleviate these issues, the Carrier germicidal UV lamp is mounted near the cooling coil where fungus and microbes can grow. The intense UV light is designed to kill bacteria and mold growing on and around the indoor coil, enhancing system efficiency and improving the quality of your indoor air.
