It’s winter in Michigan and the colder weather means dry air. Dry air is not only an annoyance, but it can cause problems to your home and your health. Dry air can cause chapped skin, respiratory problems, static shocks, dried-up houseplants, cracked and warped furniture, separations in wood floors, and gaps in your home’s moldings. When the air is dry in your home, it makes you feel colder. Therefore, higher energy bills may result from turning up the thermostat to compensate for the dry air, this is where a whole house humidifier comes into play.
A whole house humidifier is a wonderful solution to feeling healthy and saving money. A whole house humidifier attaches to your home’s furnace. They fill themselves with water automatically and you get the benefits of wonderful humidity in every single room throughout your entire home. Operating a whole house humidifier is simple. You simply dial up how much humidity you like to have in your home. The average percentage for winter humidity is 40 percent. The Lennox Healthy Climate humidifiers include the Steam, Power and Bypass Humidifiers. The Steam and Power humidifiers can even control moisture when the heating system is not running for maximum comfort levels. Once a year, there’s a filter pad that needs to be changed and that’s when you can inspect the inside of your humidifier to see that it’s kept clean and free from any obstructions.
