What Is A Whole-House Humidifier?
Installing a humidifier can help maintain the right levels of humidity in indoor environments. It is a device that emits steam or water vapor to increase the moisture levels of indoor air. There are many different types of humidifiers, such as:
- Central Humidifiers are incorporated into the home’s HVAC and are specifically designed to humidify the entire house.
- Impeller humidifier shave a rotating disk that produces a cool mist.
- Ultrasonic humidifiers use ultrasonic vibration to produce a cool mist.
- Evaporator shave fans that blow air through a belt, filter, or wet wick.
- Steam vaporizers create steam by using electricity, and this helps to cool the room. This type of humidifier isn’t the right choice if you have kids or pets in the house. The hot water in these units can cause severe burns if spilled.
Benefits of a Whole-House Humidifier
A humidifier can prove to be very beneficial, but it needs to be set at a moderate level. If you overuse the system, it can make the indoor spaces feel hot and stuffy and can also lead to the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. It can also cause problems for people with allergies and asthma.
Some Aspects to Keep In View
- Avoid over-humidity related problems by keeping the humidity level in your house below 45%
- Cleaning your whole-house air purifier-machine periodically.
- Change the devices’ filters periodically as clogged filters can release grime & bacteria into the air and affect air quality. Changing the filters frequently will help to keep the indoor air filled with fresh and livable air.
