HUMIDIFIERS AND AIR FILTRATION
For homes with a forced-air furnace, a humidifier may be installed into the furnace to increases humidity (moisture) in the entire house. Indoor humidity levels should ideally remain between 30 and 50 percent but during winter months the indoor humidity levels of furnace-heated air can drop to 10 percent or less. There are many personal benefits to adding a humidifier to your HVAC system that include remedying dry skin and dry skin conditions, treating cold, flew and allergy symptoms, as well as easing asthma. There are also benefits to your home, they can help improve plant growth, as well as protect walls, wooden objects, antiques and other furnishings which may be sensitive to damage from overly dry air. In colder months, they may provide substantial energy savings, since as humidity increases, occupants feel warm at a lower temperature. The humidifier should usually be disabled during the summer months if air conditioning is used; air conditioners partially function by reducing indoor humidity.
Different styles of HVAC humidifiers include ~ Drum style, Disc Wheel Style, Bypass Flow-Through Style, Spray Mist Type, Non-Bypass Flow-Through, Steam, Impeller or Centrifugal Atomizer and Under Duct.
