Wintry, dry air in your home causes more trouble than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. An absence 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 its best condition. Woodwork in your home—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. J.L. Brady Company LLC in Moline carries two essential 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-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 needs to be changed once or twice per year. This may vary depending on the level of debris that migrates through your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done considerable home improvement projects within your home, you will likely need to change it more frequently. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is neglected.
Lennox models have humidifier pads especially for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise damage your humidifier. Trapped 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.
