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

 
Cold, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just freezing 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 has to have 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 restore that moisture in your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. All Seasons Heating & A/C Co in Bloomington 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 to follow 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 per year. This may be different depending on the extent of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done large home improvement projects in your home, you will likely need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not run at peak efficiency if the water panel is overlooked.
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 technique of disposing of minerals.
