Cool, dry air in your home causes more issues than just icy hands and feet in the frosty months. A shortage of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home needs 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 return that moisture to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Halverson Brothers Inc in Menomonie and western Wisconsin 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 returned to the air and is dispersed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar way, 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 throughout the seasons.
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 has to be changed once or twice per year. This may vary depending on the extent of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done extensive home improvement projects within your home, you might need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not work 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
. Stagnant 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 technique of disposing of minerals.
