How Humidifiers WorkHumidifiers may not seem like an obvious solution to breathing problems seen in asthma or seasonal allergies, but research has discovered that that they provide a viable solution in improving the indoor air quality of homes for easier and healthier breathing.
,br/>Hhumidifiers deliver balanced levels of moisture throughout the entire home for a number of reasons. First, a moderate level of humidity is needed to maintain the structure of the home; dry, cold temperatures can weaken the frames and foundation. Second, certain levels of moisture assist better breathing patterns for people with the cold, flu, or other respiratory-related problems. This is all in spite of the popular belief that dry air is healthier, when in fact, dry air can facilitate bacteria and infections easier than air with some moisture. In essence, some humidity is necessary.
Whole house humidifiers are installed into the existing central heating and cooling systems. Air is taken in from a distribution tray and released in the form of water vapor so that harmful minerals are prevented from entering the air supply. The newly-produced moisture is then circulated around the home as it combines with the desired temperature levels to bring a clean and comfortable breathing air.
Introduced in the 1950s, the humidifier was a major innovation in the way HVAC systems operated. It went on to influence how residential air quality systems evolved and ultimately improved indoor air breathing for homeowners and residents. Now available with an automatic digital humidifier control, humidifiers can function more easily and adjust to one’s custom settings.
With whole house humidifiers, customers can breathe easier and live more comfortable lives in a home filled by cleaner, fresher, and better balanced air.
