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

Cool, dry air in your home causes more problems than just freezing 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 requires humidity to keep it in top condition. Woodwork in your rooms—including hardwood floors—can lose moisture to the dry air and become damaged. Whole-home humidifiers can restore that moisture in your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. True Temp Heating & Air Inc in Chatsworth carries two elementary configurations:
  • Bypass humidifiers draw warm air from heat ducts and drive it through a water panel. Water vapor is absorbed into the air, humidity is replaced in the air and is circulated throughout your home.
  • Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, 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 no matter the time of the year.
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 has to be changed once or twice each year. This may change depending on the extent of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done extensive home improvement projects within your home, you may 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 explicitly for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise hurt 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 method of disposing of minerals.
