Cold, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. An absence of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home has to have humidity to keep it in its best condition. Woodwork in your house—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. CNR Air Conditioning Inc in Naples 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 way, but they also have 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 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 has to be changed once or twice each year. This may be different depending on the level of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done extensive home improvement projects in your home, you will likely need to change it more frequently. 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
. Sitting 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 way of disposing of minerals.
