Cool, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. A shortage of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home needs 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 return that moisture to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Freed Heating & Air Conditioning in Moline 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 distributed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar way, but they also have 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 no matter the time of the 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 annually. This may change depending on the amount of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done extensive 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 ignored.
Lennox models have humidifier pads especially for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise harm 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.
