A humidifier can be a great addition to your heating and cooling system, and it works with your furnace to provide the perfect humidification levels throughout your home. By working with your furnace, moisture can be effectively delivered all over the home, precisely monitored to maintain your chosen levels, all from one unit.
This is much more efficient and user friendly that the portable units you may be familiar with, which can only affect small areas, often less than a single room, at any time. Because humidifiers installed with your furnace use very little energy require minimal amounts of maintenance, they are a much easier solution to live with than the portable option too.
There are many reasons why you would want to install a humidifier, here are just some of the many benefits:
Health – Dry air can cause several health problems, and well humidified air has been shown to help alleviate several conditions, including improved lung health, alleviating asthma symptoms and reducing allergy issues. In many cases, there is a distinct reduction in minor illness occurrence for all inhabitants of the home.
Comfort – During colder months, dry air can make any environment feel cooler, and having a humidifier can help avoid that. Not only does that make your home feel warmer when it is needed most, it also means that the furnace does not have to work so hard, saving you energy which reduces the overall running costs of your furnace system.
Protection – Your home can be vulnerable to problems caused by dry air, including cracks in wooden flooring or cabinets, drying out of wooden furniture and fittings and so on, which can prove expensive to maintain in the long term. By maintaining a balanced humidity, that damage, and the repair expense, can be easily avoided.
There are three types of humidifiers, Bypass Humidifiers that only work when the furnace is in use, Fan-Powered Humidifiers that are independent of the furnace and can work without it switched on, or steam humidifiers, which also require the furnace to be on. There are pros and cons for each type, and the choice of humidifier is dependent on the situation and budget available.
