Air Quality & Whole Home Humidifiers in Woodland Park
The frigid Colorado winters often result in dry, itchy skin due to lower humidity levels during the cold months. The low humidity not only affects our skin but may cause dry nasal passages. This dryness creates an environment in which viruses and other microorganisms may proliferate. Many people are finding a solution in whole-home humidifiers that work with your current HVAC system to add humidity to the dry winter air.
These systems differ from portable humidifiers in that they work efficiently to distribute humidity throughout your home’s existing ductwork, as opposed to one room at a time. The humidifier is connected directly to your home’s water supply, and your heating unit automatically cycles part of the air it puts out through the system. As the water evaporates, the humidity it creates is distributed through your air ducts and is easily controlled by a humidistat.
Varieties of Whole-Home Humidifiers
Whole-home humidifiers are available in three primary types, these include:
- Spray/Atomizing. This type of humidifier system is not very common, but it is the least expensive. It operates by distributing a fine mist of water through your system’s airflow. In order to avoid deposits that clog the nozzle, the water used with these systems must be extremely clean.
- A steam system is the most effective means of humidifying your home. It works by boiling water with electric probes, then incorporating the steam into the airflow produced by your heating system.
- Evaporative Pad. This type of system is easy to install and maintain and is, therefore, the most common. It uses an evaporative pad with a constant drip of water to create humidity with warm air.
