Wintry, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just freezing hands and feet in the colder months. An absence of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on 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 return that moisture to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Olde Towne Heating & Air in Mount Pleasant carries two elementary 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 replaced in the air and is distributed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, 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 per year. This may vary depending on the amount of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done considerable home improvement projects within your home, you might need to change it more frequently. 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 hurt your humidifier
. Stagnant 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 way of disposing of minerals.
