Whole House Humidifier Systems & Replacement Parts
Humidity is an important factor for you home. In order to maintain the comfort of those living it in its content it needs to stay hydrated. Air too dry can absorb moisture from everyone and everything in the house including furniture. Dry air can take a toll on your furniture and health. Dry skin, chapped lips, nasal passages and static electricity are just some of the dry-air symptoms that can lead to discomfort.
A whole house humidifier might be suitable for your home if one of the following conditions is present:
Duct mounted Flow-Through humidifiers have water trickling thru a water panel and then out the bottom to a drain. Powered models use a fan where as By-Pass models use the path of least resistance to create the air flow.
The steam humidifier simmers water to create humidity. They do not need warm air and can be wired to turn on the blower when there is a call for humidity. Not waiting for the hot air allows for more precise RH control.
Self contained humidifiers have a fan and do not need to be duct mounted. The atomizing humidifiers blow a mist in to the room or duct. The centrifugal atomizing is often used for tobacco humidors where it is shelve mounted.
Water quality is a major problem causing corrosion, mineral build-up, and slime clogs. Purified water will eliminate mineral dust that falls from the evaporating air. As well as cut health issues with mold and mildew.
