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

 
Cool, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just freezing hands and feet in the winter months. A lack of humidity can irritate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home requires humidity to keep it in peak 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. C&C Refrigeration Inc. in Waxahachie carries two essential 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 dispersed throughout your home.
  • Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar fashion, but they also have 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 throughout the seasons.
Simple Maintenance Ensures Efficiency and Inhibits Mold Growth
Whole-home humidifiers have simple 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 annually. This may be different depending on the extent of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done extensive home improvement projects within your home, you might need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not work 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 damage your humidifier. Trapped 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 technique of disposing of minerals.
