Cold, dry air in your home causes more problems than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. A lack of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and bring on bloody noses. Like you, your home has to have 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 restore that moisture in your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Vogts Heating & Air in Pocatello carries two elementary 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 added back to the air and is circulated throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar fashion, but they also have 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 no matter the time of the 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 needs to be changed once or twice annually. This may be different depending on the amount of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done extensive home improvement projects inside 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 overlooked.
Lennox models have humidifier pads especially for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise hurt 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.
