Cool, dry air in your home causes more problems than just icy hands and feet in the colder months. A shortage of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home requires humidity to keep it in top 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. Age Heating & Cooling in Sandpoint carries two essential 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 dispersed 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 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 needs to be changed once or twice per year. This may change depending on the extent of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done large home improvement projects in your home, you may need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not run 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 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 method of disposing of minerals.
