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

Wintry, dry air in your home causes more issues than just icy hands and feet in the winter months. An absence 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 its best condition. Woodwork in your rooms—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. Air Concepts of Middle Georgia in Middle Georgia 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 circulated throughout your home.
  • Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, but they also have 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 all 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 be different depending on the amount of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have pets or have done large home improvement projects in your home, you might need to change it more regularly. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is neglected.

Lennox models have humidifier pads specifically for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise harm 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.
