Wintry, dry air in your home causes more issues than just freezing hands and feet in the frosty months. An absence of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home needs 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. Knoechel Heating Company in Zelienople 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 replaced in the air and is circulated throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, but they include 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 to follow 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 each year. This may be different depending on the amount of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done large home improvement projects in your home, you might need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not run at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored.
Lennox models have humidifier pads explicitly 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 way of disposing of minerals.
