Wintry, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just freezing hands and feet in the frosty months. A shortage of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home requires 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 add that moisture back to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Paso Robles Heating and Air in Paso Robles 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 distributed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar fashion, 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 simple 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 annually. This may be different 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 in your home, you may need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not work at peak efficiency if the water panel is overlooked. Lennox models have humidifier pads explicitly 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 swept down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient technique of disposing of minerals.
