Wintry, dry air in your home causes more issues than just freezing hands and feet in the colder months. A lack of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home has to have humidity to keep it in peak condition. Woodwork in your home—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. Custom Air Systems Inc in Port St. Lucie carries two primary 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 returned to the air and is circulated throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, 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 simple 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 per year. This may vary depending on the extent of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done extensive home improvement projects inside your home, you will likely need to change it more frequently. Whole-home humidifiers may not work at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored.
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 method of disposing of minerals.
