How Do Whole-Home Steam Humidifiers Work?
The experts at Mountain Air can install a steam humidifier directly into your central HVAC system’s air handler. This type of humidifier uses boiling water to distribute humidity in the form of steam throughout the entire home.
Water is then supplied to the distribution tray, allowing it to flow evenly across the water panel. The humidified air enters your home’s ductwork, which will regulate the humidity levels in each room. This is more effective than a portable mist humidifier, which will only treat one room at a time.
Benefits of Balancing the Humidity in Your Home
Installing a steam humidifier for the whole house can be rewarding in many ways, including:
- Improved health: Many viruses thrive in low-humidity environments, increasing your chances of catching the flu, colds, and other ailments.
- Improved comfort: Overly dry air can cause asthma- and allergy-related symptoms.
- Energy efficiency: Installing a whole-house humidifier can make you feel warmer without having to raise your thermostat. According to the EPA, you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat.
Humidifiers also help improve indoor air quality because they prevent minerals from entering the air and, therefore, your lungs.
In Utah, poor indoor air quality can cause and contribute to infections, headaches, and mild irritations such as dry eyes and nasal congestion.
