Cool, dry air in your home causes more problems than just chilly hands and feet in the colder months. An absence of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home needs humidity to keep it in peak condition. Woodwork in your home—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. Siloam Springs Heating & AC in Siloam Springs 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 all year.
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 must be changed once or twice each year. This may change depending on the extent of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done considerable home improvement projects within your home, you might need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is overlooked.
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 swept down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient technique of disposing of minerals.
