How Do Air Humidifiers Work?
Air humidifiers work by adding water to the air. The simplest humidifiers consist of a water tank, a ‘wick’, and a fan. The wick absorbs the water and increases the water’s surface area, making it easier to evaporate into the air. The fan then distributes the more humid air into the environment. Whole house humidification systems come in a few varieties, but work using the same principal: When humidity is required, water is introduced to the wick, and the air is distributed through the ductwork. Most whole house systems connect to the furnace.
