Cold, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly hands and feet in the frosty months. A shortage of humidity can irritate your lungs, dry out your skin and cause bloody noses. Like you, your home requires humidity to keep it in its best condition. Woodwork in your rooms—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. Faust Air Conditioning and Heating in Wharton carries two elementary configurations:
- Bypass humidifiers draw warm air from heat ducts and push 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 style, but they also have 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 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 annually. This may vary depending on the amount of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done considerable home improvement projects within 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 especially for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise hurt 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 way of disposing of minerals.
