Most homeowners have a humidifier and a dehumidifier cluttering up their closet, but they don’t know when to use each one. Each of these appliances can serve a unique purpose by making your home more comfortable and improving your indoor air quality. If you’re ready to start putting your humidifier to better use, it’s time to figure out when and how to use each one effectively.


Does your home feel dry inside? Finding a home that feels dry inside isn’t uncommon in the long winter months where the heat runs almost continuously. This dry feeling can contribute to a number of undesirable health effects like dried out nasal passages and skin. It can also contribute to the excessive shrinking of any wood furniture items in the home, including your floors. A humidifier can help to restore the necessary balance in the home by putting moisture back in the air.

Your humidifier helps by providing a source to counteract the moisture imbalance from your heating system. When the water is restored to the air, you should see a noticeable difference in your wood furniture and household items. For example, your door frame might rattle less or you might encounter fewer cracks between the boards of a hardwood floor. This moisture can help to prevent long-term damage from occurring to these items when they inevitably split from excess dryness.


A dehumidifier does the exact opposite of a humidifier by pulling excess moisture out of the air. This appliance is absolutely essential during a hot and muggy summer. Have you ever felt the stickiness of a hot summer day? Oftentimes, it is the humidity in the air that makes a home feel warmer and more uncomfortable than the heat itself.

Discomfort isn’t the only downfall that can come from a house that is too humid. Moisture is the ideal breeding ground for mold and mildew. Both of these can have a serious impact on your overall health with symptoms ranging from a stuffy nose to more severe respiratory problems. In order to minimize the likelihood that these substances will grow inside your house, you need to remedy the high relative humidity levels first. Your dehumidifier can help to correct this situation.

By pulling the water out of the air, the dehumidifier is instantly making your home feel cooler. This puts less strain on your air conditioning unit and allows you to move through the warm days with greater ease. It also removes the environmental factors that contribute to mold and mildew growth.

Understanding the difference between a humidifier and dehumidifier will give you the knowledge you need to pull these appliances back out of storage. At Classic Air Conditioning and Heating, our air conditioning technicians are highly qualified to help you determine whether a humidifier or dehumidifier is right for your home in the current season. We can give you the guidance you need to make your house more comfortable and improve your overall health.

Thank You So Much for Recommending the Air Scrubbers

I just wanted to tell you how happy we are with the air scrubbers.  The air is so clean and the dust has really gone away.  I highly recommend them.  Again, thank you so much for recommending the air scrubbers.

I Knew I Made the Right Choice from the Word Go

Kurtis Hall dealt square and honest every step of the way. His knowledge of our dated system, new product information, project scheduling and communication allowed for a seamless installation at our vacation property without my having to interrupt my work schedule to accommodate the project. And living over 5 hours away that was a huge help to me. I knew I made the right choice from the word go. Excellent job Mr Hall! Will recommend your company to others!

Impeccable Quality and Professionalism…

Had them install our system when building and multiple other contractors commented on the impeccable quality and professionalism of their work and staff. Worked with them on another building project and had equally great service and quality. Used them on a service call and Mitchell was very timely, efficient, and professional. Provided explanation in detail of what had happened and fixed it quickly. VERY impressed with this company and would recommend to ANYONE in need of a system install or repair service.
