Cool, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. An absence of humidity can aggravate 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 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. Cool Power LLC in Ronkonkoma 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 replaced in the air and is distributed 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 properly maintained 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 must be changed once or twice annually. This may change depending on the extent of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done large home improvement projects in your home, you might need to change it more regularly. 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 damage 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 way of disposing of minerals.
