Quality Lafayette Central Humidifiers
If you’ve lived in Lafayette for any number of years, you can probably recall common indoor issues during the heating season. Cracks developing on wooden furniture and wood flooring, dry skin and an itchy throat, and excessive airborne dust are all typical symptoms of indoor air that could use more humidity. If your home is heated by a central forced air furnace (or another type of centrally ducted system), you probably have the option to add a central humidifier to your system, and make a significant impact on those annoying and potentially unhealthy dry air conditions.
Many homeowners even note that after having a home central humidifier installed, they can turn the thermostat down a few degrees and enjoy the same level of comfort due to the improved humidity levels.
Central humidifiers can provide:
- Greater protection from airborne viruses and bacteria
- Elevated resistance to common indoor winter respiratory and skin issues
- Help protecting valuable wood investments such as flooring, furniture, and pianos
- Reduced airborne dust, pet dander, and more
- Reduced or eliminated static electric shocks
- Equivalent comfort with a lower thermostat temperature, resulting in lowered utility bills
When it’s time to look closer at a central humidifier installation for your home, our expert team takes into account many factors when making recommendations. These include the nature of your existing heating system, your specific goals, budget, and other factors such as the square footage of your home. In the Boulder-Denver area, you can count on the experience of our team at Save Home Heat Company to get it right with options that have your best interests in mind.
Central Humidifier Options for Lafayette
Standard Flow-Through Humidifiers
There are different types of central humidifiers to consider, and each comes with its own set of advantages. The most popular current option is the standard, flow-through humidifier, which uses heat produced by your furnace to evaporate water, which is then delivered in the air to the home through the central ducting system. T
hese units can be very effective when the furnace is used to consistently heat the home, but during periods when heat is not needed, consistent humidity levels may be more difficult to maintain.
The upfront installed cost of standard humidifiers is relatively reasonable, and annual maintenance is not overly complicated.
Central Steam Humidifiers
The other popular central humidifier design is the steam humidifier, which provides the most effective, most reliable home humidification, 24/7, regardless of the heating needs of the home.
Steam humidifiers boil water inside the unit, and use the furnace’s blower and the ducting system to deliver humidified air to the home, whether or not the heat is operating. For homes with valuable wood investments such as flooring and antique furniture, or health conditions that require consistent humidity levels around the clock, steam units are the highest performing and most reliable products available.
Central steam humidifiers are a higher cost investment than standard flow-though units, and annual maintenance is more detailed and absolutely necessary. However, when high performance and consistent control are needed, they are the best product for the job.
Some homeowners may be tempted to rely on good quality portable units, but the truth is that these smaller humidifiers simply don’t do a great job of properly humidifying your whole home and tend be to be a hassle to fill and maintain throughout the season. Our team at Save Home Heat Company can help educate and inform you about various quality options, so you can make a decision you feel is the right one for you and your Lafayette home.
