Humidifiers:

When you think of dryness, do you picture the arid, wind-whipped sands of the Sahara? The cracked, sun-baked earth of Death Valley?

It may surprise you to know that one of the driest places on Earth may be your home! And, it’s this “desert dryness” that makes you feel uncomfortable, robbing moisture from your home, your furnishings, even your skin.

Even with the added moisture provided by normal household activities such as cooking, laundry, and showers, you can seldom achieve comfortable indoor humidity levels without a whole-house humidifier. The recommended relative humidity is three to four times the humidity in an average North American home in winter.. If you do not reach optimal levels of humidity, you could be exposing yourself and your family to nose, throat, and skin discomfort. Unhumidified heated air also dries out the wood in yur home, shrinking the framing around doors and windows. Gaps can occur, allowing cold air in, making your home less energy efficient. Dry air also causes wood floors and trim to separate, walls and ceilings to crack; it can harm expensive musical instruments and electronic equipment. Dryness even weakens the joints of expensive furnishings.

Aprilaire Automatic Humidifiers

Aprilaire offers the most effective humidification system available. It automatically adjusts to outdoor temperatures, keeping the humidity at just the right levels.

Aprilaire features:

  • Five models to suit your needs and budget
  • Solid state electronics for total system reliability and precision
  • Automatic adjustments generating up to 50% more moisture than humidifiers using a manual control

Honeywell TrueSTEAM Humidification System

Honeywell offers three TrueSTEAM models with limitless installation opportunities through its remote-mount capability. This allows installers to mount the humidifier up to 20 feet away from the ductwork, making installation possible in tight spaces.

TrueSTEAM features include:

  • Fail-safe water sensing to increase the accuracy of water level readings and reduces the likelihood of mechanical failure
  • Incoloy 600 heating element that helps inhibit mineral bild-up by expanding and contracting as it operates
  • Condensate collect dome and nozzle that prevents water from condensing out of the unit and delivering only true steam into the airflow
  • Dual-action water valve automatically fills and drains when needed

Case Study – Humidifiers

Portable Humidifier just not cutting it

Forced Hot Air systems blow hot air in the cool and cold weather months, removing moisture in the room. This dry air affects the sinuses, making some people much more susceptible to sinus infections. Dry air is also bad for wood floors and furniture, not to mention houseplants! Portable humidifiers often don’t humidify the entire room and have to be refilled every day. The whole-house humidification system was the answer for this family. This unit works with the existing forced hot air heating system in the home, adding moisture to keep the entire home at optimal humidity levels.

No more refilling portable humidifiers in every room; no more spilling; no more worries.
