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

 
Cold, dry air in your home causes more problems than just chilly hands and feet in the frosty months. An absence of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home requires 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 restore that moisture in your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Hammack Service Company in Richardson 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 replaced in the air and is distributed 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 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 needs to be changed once or twice each year. This may change depending on the extent of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done extensive home improvement projects in your home, you will likely need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not run 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 harm your humidifier. Sitting 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.
