Air Quality & Home Humidifiers in Colorado Springs
Have you noticed you have dry, itchy skin in the winter? Humidity levels are always lower in the winter than in the summer, contributing to dry skin and nasal passages. The room will seem colder even when the temperature is set to a comfortable level. It’s even easier for microorganisms like viruses to spread among family members when the humidity is low, as they thrive in such conditions. What you may need is a whole-home humidifier. Whole-home humidifiers work alongside your existing heating and cooling systems to introduce humidity into the air.
They are installed directly into your heating system’s ductwork, allowing the humidity to distribute evenly throughout the home, as opposed to portable humidifiers, which only work effectively for one room at a time. While your heating unit is operating, part of the air that it cycles is concentrated into the humidifier, which evaporates the water directly introduced into the humidifier from your home’s water supply. The additional humidity is then distributed throughout the home via the airflow ducts and is controlled by a humidistat.
Types of Whole-Home Humidifiers
There are three main types of whole-home humidifiers:
- By-Pass Humidifier
- Steam Humidifier
- Fan Powered Humidifier
