Cool, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. An absence 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 house—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. Honke Heating & AC in Gresham 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 added back to the air and is dispersed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar fashion, 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 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 level 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 may need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored.
Lennox models have humidifier pads specifically 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 washed down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient technique of disposing of minerals.
