Cool, dry air in your home causes more issues than just icy hands and feet in the colder months. A shortage of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home has to have humidity to keep it in peak condition. Woodwork in your house—including hardwood floors—can lose moisture to the dry air and become damaged. Whole-home humidifiers can add that moisture back to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. House of Heating Incorporated in Marshfield carries two elementary configurations:
- Bypass humidifiers draw warm air from heat ducts and drive it through a water panel. Water vapor is absorbed into the air, humidity is replaced in the air and is dispersed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar way, but they hold a fan that blows air across the water panel for increased water evaporation.
A properly maintained humidifier can keep you happy, healthy and comfortable in your home throughout the seasons.
Simple Maintenance Ensures Efficiency and Inhibits Mold Growth
Whole-home humidifiers have easy maintenance. If your humidifier has a water panel, like a Lennox Healthy Climate Whole-Home Humidifier, the water pad inside only needs to be changed once or twice each year. This may change depending on the amount of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done extensive home improvement projects in your home, you will likely need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored.
Lennox models have humidifier pads explicitly for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise harm your humidifier. Sitting water, excess minerals and other solid residue not trapped by the replaceable humidifier pad are swept down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient way of disposing of minerals.
