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

 
Wintry, dry air in your home causes more issues than just chilly 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 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 return that moisture to your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Branson HVAC, LLC in Ridgedale and the Branson area 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 replaced in 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 properly 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 needs to be changed once or twice annually. This may vary depending on the amount of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done large home improvement projects inside your home, you might 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 hurt 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 method of disposing of minerals.
