The difference is in their function.

Dehumidifiers draw water from the air to lower the overall humidity. They draw air into the unit, where the excess water is removed. The drier air circulates back into the room. Dehumidifiers work more efficiently in warmer temperatures with high humidity.

Humidifiers serve the opposite function in a home. They add moisture to the air of the home through a mist or vapor, depending on the type.
