Cool, dry air in your home causes more problems than just icy hands and feet in the colder months. An absence of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home requires humidity to keep it in its best 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. Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc in Heflin carries two primary 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 distributed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar way, but they hold 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 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 change depending on the level of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done extensive home improvement projects inside your home, you may need to change it more frequently. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored.
Lennox models have humidifier pads especially for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise damage your humidifier
. Stagnant 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 method of disposing of minerals.
