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

 
Cold, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly hands and feet in the frosty months. A lack of humidity can bother 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 return that moisture to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Gillman Heating and Air in Perry 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 way, but they include 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 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 level of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done considerable home improvement projects within your home, you might need to change it more frequently. Whole-home humidifiers may not work 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 harm 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.
