Cold, dry air in your home causes more issues than just freezing hands and feet in the winter months. A lack of humidity can irritate your lungs, dry out your skin and cause bloody noses. Like you, your home needs humidity to keep it in its best condition. Woodwork in your home—including hardwood floors—can lose moisture to the dry air and become damaged. Whole-home humidifiers can return that moisture to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning in Bossier City carries two primary 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 added back to the air and is circulated throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, but they include a fan that blows air across the water panel for increased water evaporation.
A well-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 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 each year. This may be different depending on the extent of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done extensive home improvement projects inside your home, you might need to change it more frequently. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is neglected.
Lennox models have humidifier pads explicitly 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 method of disposing of minerals.
