Cool, dry air in your home causes more issues than just icy hands and feet in the frosty months. A shortage of humidity can irritate 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 return that moisture to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Mayeuxs AC & Heating in Norco and St. Charles Parish 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 added back to the air and is dispersed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar fashion, but they hold 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 change depending on the extent of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done large home improvement projects within your home, you may need to change it more often. 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 harm your humidifier. Stagnant water, excess minerals and other solid residue not trapped by the replaceable humidifier pad are flushed down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient method of disposing of minerals.
