Wintry, dry air in your home causes more problems than just chilly hands and feet in the winter months. A shortage of humidity can bother your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home requires humidity to keep it in top 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. Ilten's Incorporated in Cedar Rapids carries two primary 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 added back to the air and is distributed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, but they include 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 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 be different depending on the level of debris that goes your home’s ventilation system. If you have animals or have done considerable home improvement projects inside your home, you may need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is overlooked.
Lennox models have humidifier pads especially for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise damage 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.
