Wintry, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly hands and feet in the colder months. A lack of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and cause bloody noses. Like you, your home requires 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. Clean Air HVAC in Pacheco 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 replaced in the air and is dispersed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar fashion, 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 has to be changed once or twice per year. This may vary depending on the amount of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done extensive home improvement projects within your home, you may need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is neglected.
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.
