If you’ve ever had a nasty cough or suffered from allergies or asthma, you know how great humidifiers can be. Many people own room humidifiers, which are freestanding, small units that you can transfer across the home as it’s needed. While these can be very helpful, they’re only effective for a small space and cannot cover all of your home. Whole-house humidifiers have the ability to work for the entirety of your home, just as their name would suggest.

Whole-house humidifiers work by attaching to your home’s air ducts. A portion of the air from your HVAC system is then circulated through your humidifier and a water pad that is attached to your water pipes. This creates water vapor which then gets blown through your HVAC system, distributing air throughout your home. Because it’s hooked up to your home’s water pipes, you don’t have to worry about refilling your whole-house humidifier like you would a room humidifier.

Compared to room humidifiers, whole-house humidifiers do not require refills, and they are able to cover your whole home as opposed to a single area. On top of all of that, whole-house humidifiers also monitor your home’s air and adjust accordingly. Room humidifiers typically do not have this capability and have to be adjusted manually.

If you’re looking for a permanent solution to your home’s air quality or your breathing issues, whole-house humidifiers can be a great solution. For more information about whole-house humidifiers, visit
