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

 
Cold, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just icy hands and feet in the colder months. A lack of humidity can irritate your lungs, dry out your skin and cause bloody noses. Like you, your home has to have humidity to keep it in top 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. Dave's Diversified Services in Front Royal 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 properly maintained 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 needs to be changed once or twice annually. This may vary depending on the extent of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done considerable home improvement projects in your home, you might need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not run 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. Trapped 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.
