The seasons are beginning to change, the temperature is shifting, and you’re beginning to notice that the air inside your home is drying up. Maybe your lips are as dry as they’ve ever been, your skin is beginning to crack and peel, or you’re finding that static shocks are happening more often than usual. Whatever the signs may be, it’s become quite clear that your home isn’t holding much humidity. Although you can leave things as they are, suffering through the temperature fluctuations and dealing with the dryness day in and day out, there are better solutions available. For most homeowners in the twenty-first century, it’s incredibly common to solve this problem with the installation of a whole-house humidifier.
What Is a Whole-House Humidifier?
- Run the whole-house humidifier only when the furnace is on. Most modern homes have unconditioned ducts. This means that the moist air coming from the humidifier, unless paired with warm air from the furnace, can result in excess duct build-up and result in mold growth.
- Get a steam humidifier. There are two primary humidifier solutions: steam and bypass. Unlike bypass, which steals heat from your furnace hot-air supply to generate water vapor, steam units have the capability to boil water on their own for the purpose of supply. This means that you can get access to more humidity over a shorter period of time, and do so while using less energy in the process.
- Work with an expert installation team. Every home is different, and every unique low-moisture problem will require solutions designed by an experienced HVAC technician. To ensure that the whole-house humidifier solution you’re installing is right for your home, and to prevent any long-term side effects (over-humidification, mold, and so on), do what you can to work with an expert installation team from day one.
