There are two main types of home furnace humidifiers: flow-through systems – in which the waterflows through the humidifier and ultimately drains out – and reservoir home furnace humidifiers – inwhich the humidifier employs a reservoir of water and a rotating drum to introduce additional moistureinto the air.
Both of these types of humidifier, and most other furnace humidifier systems, are attacheddirectly to the furnace in the home in order to provide warmer humidity. These humidifiers use theheat from the furnace to raise the temperature of the moisture being added by the humidifier.
