Wintry, dry air in your home causes more problems than just chilly hands and feet in the colder months. A lack of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home has to have humidity to keep it in top condition. Woodwork in your home—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. B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant carries two essential 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 added back to 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-managed 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 to follow 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 per year. This may vary depending on the level of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done large home improvement projects within your home, you might 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 specifically for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise hurt your humidifier. Trapped 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.
