Wintry, dry air in your home causes more issues than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. A lack of humidity can aggravate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home requires 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. JTech Mechanical in Magnolia carries two primary 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 returned to 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 no matter the time of the 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 annually. This may change depending on the amount of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done large home improvement projects in your home, you may need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not run at peak efficiency if the water panel is overlooked.
Lennox models have humidifier pads specifically for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise hurt your humidifier. Stagnant 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 technique of disposing of minerals.
