A humidifier is a device that increases moisture in a single room or an entire building. There are two different types of residential humidifiers – point of use humidifiers and whole-house or furnace humidifiers. Point of use humidifiers, are available for purchase at any home renovation or department store and plug-in to the wall to humidify a single room. Whole house or furnace humidifiers connect to the home’s HVAC system and manage the humidity in the entire house. Canadian Comfort specializes in the installation of whole-home or furnace humidifiers which are integrated with the home’s HVAC system.
How Do Humidifiers Work?
All furnace mounted humidifiers operate under the principle of evaporating water to inject moisture into the warm air stream expelled from the furnace. This air is circulated through the home via venting and duct work to maintain a comfortable, healthy level of humidity.
Why Do You Need a Humidifier?
If the air in your home is too dry, moisture will be extracted from other areas of the home including plants, wood and even people! Having air that’s too dry can cause wood and drywall to crack as well as numerous negative health effects from sore throats, to bloody noses, to dry skin and eyes etc. Not pretty! For these reasons, humidifiers are often recommended for people who suffer from allergies and/or asthma, as well as senior citizens. When you have more moisture in your home, you can lower the thermostat and still maintain a comfortable temperature. This is due to the fact that water holds heat much more efficiently than air. For this reason, humidifiers save you money on your monthly utility bills and reduce the wear and tear on your furnace. Humidifiers are also highly recommended for homes with hardwood floors as dry air can cause hardwood floors to become brittle and crack – reducing their shine and lifespan. Maintaining an optimal level of humidity in the home is essential for comfort, health and well-being. Did you know that most houses can use up to 12-15 gallons of water in humidity PER DAY?
