What is a dehumidifier and a humidifier?

If a room, house or building is overly humid, it is possible to remove some of the moisture in the air using a dehumidifier. Basically a dehumidifier plugs in and works like an automatic air vacuum, pulling moisture out of the room it is sitting in. You turn it on and it does the work. The water that is pulled out of the air by the dehumidifier then goes into a holding tank or bucket. The holding tank or bucket fills up and has to be emptied out continuously. It usually shuts off once it is full. On extra humid days it may be necessary to empty the dehumidifier more than once. Humidifiers work the opposite way. They add moisture to the air in a dry house or even for people with humidity can ruin furniture, paintings and books especially and some people find it very uncomfortable to live in. A humidifier will help alleviate some of the problem but not all of it. There are illnesses that benefit from added moisture in the air. Humidifiers don’t have to be as complicated as a dehumidifier. You can put a saucepan of water on to boil on a stove top and it will work the same way as a plug in humidifier. There are also humidifiers that can be put in a fireplace that boil and release steam as the fire heats the water inside of them. They are usually heavy iron kettle style humidifiers. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers help to make a building or room more comfortable to be in. They can also help to protect you health and your belongings. Mama Nono
