Wintry, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just icy hands and feet in the frosty months. An absence of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home requires humidity to keep it in peak condition. Woodwork in your rooms—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. Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating in Laguna Niguel carries two elementary 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 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 all 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 must be changed once or twice annually. This may change 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 in your home, you may need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not work at peak efficiency if the water panel is neglected.
Lennox models have humidifier pads especially for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise damage your humidifier. Sitting 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 method of disposing of minerals.
