Cool, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just icy hands and feet in the colder months. A lack of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home has to have humidity to keep it in top 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. Appalachian Heating in Beckley and Mount Hope carries two elementary 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 circulated 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 well-maintained humidifier can keep you happy, healthy and comfortable in your home all year.
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 must be changed once or twice each year. This may be different depending on the amount of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done considerable home improvement projects in your home, you will likely need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not run 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
. Sitting water, excess minerals and other solid residue not trapped by the replaceable humidifier pad are washed down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient technique of disposing of minerals.
