Cool, dry air in your home causes more issues than just freezing hands and feet in the frosty months. A lack of humidity can irritate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home has to have humidity to keep it in its best 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. Integrity AC & Heating LLC in Phoenix carries two primary configurations:
- Bypass humidifiers draw warm air from heat ducts and push it through a water panel. Water vapor is absorbed into the air, humidity is returned to the air and is dispersed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, but they also have 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 to follow 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 annually. This may be different depending on the extent of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done large home improvement projects within your home, you will likely need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not work at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored. Lennox models have humidifier pads specifically for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise hurt your humidifier. Trapped 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 technique of disposing of minerals.
