Wintry, dry air in your home causes more problems than just icy hands and feet in the colder months. An absence of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to 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. Gilray Heating and Cooling in Wausau 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 returned to the air and is distributed 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 well-managed 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 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 each year. This may vary depending on the amount of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done extensive 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 neglected.
Lennox models have humidifier pads specifically for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise harm your humidifier
. Sitting water, excess minerals and other solid residue not trapped by the replaceable humidifier pad are washed down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient way of disposing of minerals.
