What You Need to Know about Whole-House Humidifiers and Mold

 
Wintry, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly 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 has to have humidity to keep it in its best condition. Woodwork in your house—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. Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC in Booneville 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 circulated throughout your home.
  • Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, but they also have a fan that blows air across the water panel for increased water evaporation.
A properly 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 must be changed once or twice annually. This may be different depending on the amount of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done considerable home improvement projects within your home, you will likely need to change it more frequently. 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 harm 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.
