Cold, dry air in your home causes more issues than just chilly hands and feet in the winter 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 restore that moisture in your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Air Quality Solutions in Grove City carries two essential configurations:
- Bypass humidifiers draw warm air from heat ducts and drive it through a water panel. Water vapor is absorbed into the air, humidity is returned to 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-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 each 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 extensive home improvement projects in your home, you may need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate 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 hurt 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 way of disposing of minerals.
