Besides lowering your utility bills, humidity control is very important to your health for a couple of reasons. Mold, which thrives in high humidity, is dormant or dies when the humidity is low. Dust mites also die when the humidity stays below 50%. But remember, the dust mites in your bed rely on you for their source of humidity, so always use mattress covers, pillow covers and box spring encasings. On the other hand, below 30% relative humidity, people can be uncomfortable and can suffer from dry mucus membranes which can lead to nosebleeds and infections. Low humidity can aggravate the symptoms of asthma and high humidity at high temperatures can sometimes lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
Many humidification work only when the heating system is actively running. The Honeywell Whole-House Steam Power Humidification works effectively with your heating system but lets you control the humidity independently, so you can add needed moisture to your home without turning up the heat. Honeywell’s Steam Humidifier features a thermal switch that turns on the system fan as needed. You’ll be able to set the humidity where you like it and enjoy consistent, reliable comfort. Even more, you’ll enjoy a clean, efficient system. The Honeywell Steam Humidification features two-stage water treatment that eliminates scale build-up to ensure clean, reliable performance. The Honeywell Whole-House Steam Humidifier is the perfect choice for homes requiring increased protection for wood flooring, furnishings and decor.
Aprilaire’s humidifiers uses nature’s own process – the introduction of humidity through safe, pure water vapor- to add moisture to your dry air. When your home’s humidity falls below the optimum level, your Aprilaire Humidifier goes to work. Water supplied to the distribution tray flows evenly across the patented Water Panel® evaporator. Thirsty, dry air is forced through the Water Panel evaporator and the newly humidified air is distributed throughout your home.
