Cool, dry air in your home causes more issues than just freezing hands and feet in the winter months. An absence of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home requires humidity to keep it in its best condition. Woodwork in your home—including hardwood floors—can lose moisture to the dry air and become damaged. Whole-home humidifiers can restore that moisture in your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. in West Jefferson carries two elementary configurations:
- Bypass humidifiers draw warm air from heat ducts and pass it through a water panel. Water vapor is absorbed into the air, humidity is replaced in the air and is circulated throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar way, but they include 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 annually. This may change depending on the amount of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done extensive home improvement projects within your home, you will likely need to change it more frequently. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is overlooked.
Lennox models have humidifier pads especially 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 method of disposing of minerals.
