Wintry, dry air in your home causes more problems than just icy hands and feet in the colder months. A lack of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and cause bloody noses. Like you, your home needs humidity to keep it in its best condition. Woodwork in your house—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. Smyth Air Conditioning Inc in Lake Worth carries two primary 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 circulated throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar fashion, 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 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 annually. This may vary depending on the extent of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done extensive home improvement projects within your home, you might need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not work at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored.
Lennox models have humidifier pads specifically 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.
