What is Whole Home Humidification?

A whole-home humidifier is attached to your furnace and can access your home’s duct system. When it is active, it adds a controlled amount of moisture to the air that is then dispersed by the fan in the duct system. The moisture comes in the form of water vapor added to the air and helps prevent dryness. The humidity level can be monitored and controlled through the humidistat, which measures the moisture in the air.

Types of Humidifiers

When installing a new humidifier into your home, you have quite a few options to help improve your indoor air quality. Here are your options:

Bypass Humidifiers

OA bypass humidifier is connected to the air return or air handler and relies on redirected air from the blower motor of the furnace to push warm air through it. The warm air passes through the water panel and absorbs moisture before being redistributed throughout the home. Bypass humidifiers are very quiet and high efficiency, but the method results in a large amount of water waste as humidity is lost as the air travels a fair distance before you receive it.

Fan Powered Humidifiers

A fan-powered humidifier works similarly to a bypass humidifier, except it contains a fan to help blow air throughout the home. This humidifier is much more efficient as it can save up to a gallon of water per day compared to a bypass humidifier, making it well-suited for large homes. Contrarily, fan-powered humidifiers require more maintenance with an additional fan and must be serviced at least twice a year.

Steam Humidifiers

Steam humidifiers add humidity to the air by boiling water, creating steam that goes directly into the air rather than relying on the ductwork. Steam humidifiers provide the quickest and most efficient whole-house humidifiers, but they have the highest initial cost and are difficult to install and maintain. The size and complication of the install mean they are only suited for large homes, and you should consult a professional to see if your home is suited for one.

Air Filtration Systems

Contaminants can still be sucked into your duct system and distributed throughout your house. To handle this issue, you need an air filtration system. For this purpose, you want an electronic air cleaner to eliminate airborne contaminants. Cheaper cleaners do not have enough power to effectively clean the filter, so it’s important to invest in a high-efficiency filter to trap pollen, dust, and bacteria.

Duct Cleaning Services

Your home’s ductwork can trap moisture and create an ideal environment for mold and bacteria growth. Consistent clean-up is recommended, as this will clear dirt, mold, and debris from your duct system. This will result in cleaner air and extend the life of your ductwork as it allows for greater operating efficiency. If your home has an air purification system, schedule duct cleaning today.

What are the signs of an overly dry home?

An overly dry home can irritate your sinuses and dry out your skin. Here are some signs that your home may need to improve its air quality. 

Frequent Static Electricity

Frequent static electricity is the result of dry air. The build-up of electrons when you move around your home will be insulated by the dry air, resulting in frequent electric shocks. 

Chapped Lips and Dry skin

Chapped lips and dry skin resulting from a lack of moisture in the air. This can result in scratching and further skin irritation.

Warping Wood and other material problems

Wood is incredibly vulnerable to sharp changes in the environment. In an overly dry home, wood can warp or crack. Summarily, paint can also chip and begin to break down without the presence of moisture in the air. 

Itchy Throat

Itchy throat, stuffy nose, and sinus issues can make it uncomfortable to sleep or breathe. Dry air can also add to asthma and allergy flare-ups, causing further irritation.

Max's Fix-it 24/7 is phenomenal. I have a newer home (8 years) and I was told that both my units needed to be replaced. My neighbor recommended Max's Fix-it 24/7 Heating & Air and Rudy knows how to run a business. I had an issue that was caused by my maintenance man and because I was under the home warranty I was not charged for a visit. I promise no air conditioning is not a pleasant experience with the temperature this hot. My technician, Cody, was actually early, diagosed the issue in about two minutes and checked out everything giving me peace of mind as well. He was courteous, friendly and professional. I felt he gave me a thourough inspection as well. As a former Wendy's Franchisee I have dealt with the trades for over 30 years, please consider Max's Fix-it 24/7 Heating & Air for your HVAC needs.
