Wintry, dry air in your home causes more issues than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. A shortage of humidity can irritate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home needs humidity to keep it in peak 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. AZ Air Conditioning and Heating in Los Angeles 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 replaced in the air and is distributed 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 no matter the time of the 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 has to be changed once or twice annually. This may change depending on the level of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done large home improvement projects inside your home, you may need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored. Lennox models have humidifier pads specifically 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 way of disposing of minerals.
