Wintry, dry air in your home causes more problems than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. A lack of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home requires humidity to keep it in its best condition. Woodwork in your rooms—including hardwood floors—can lose moisture to the dry air and become damaged. Whole-home humidifiers can return that moisture to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Temperature Doctors Heating & Cooling, Inc in Rockford carries two elementary configurations:
- Bypass humidifiers draw warm air from heat ducts and drive 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 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 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 per year. This may be different depending on the extent of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done large home improvement projects within your home, you will likely 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 explicitly for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise damage your humidifier
. Trapped water, excess minerals and other solid residue not trapped by the replaceable humidifier pad are flushed down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient way of disposing of minerals.
