What You Need to Know about Whole-House Humidifiers and Mold

March 01, 2017
 
Cold, dry air in your home causes more problems than just freezing hands and feet in the winter 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 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. Abilene Air-Tech Inc in Abilene carries two essential 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 returned to the air and is distributed 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 no matter the time of the year.
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 has to 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 furry friends or have done large home improvement projects within your home, you might need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is overlooked.
Lennox models have humidifier pads explicitly for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise harm your humidifier. Sitting 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 method of disposing of minerals.
