Installing Whole-Home Humidifiers in Your Cleveland Home
Whole-home humidifiers are typically attached to the stack on the forced-air furnace. This allows for the humidifier to draw water from either the hot or cold water pipes. The humidifier may also be installed on the return air vent where it is able to add moisture into the air before it is heated within the furnace. It is possible to install the unit via a bypass duct as well. This configuration allows the humidifier to reintroduce the humidified air into the air as it is blown through the ducts and into the rooms in your home.
The installation process is fast and typically takes less than a few hours to complete. Once the whole-home humidifier is installed, our trained HVAC technicians will show you how to operate the unit, perform basic troubleshooting, and conduct routine maintenance tasks. Before we leave, we will make sure you are comfortable controlling the unit and adjusting it for your specific comfort.

Maintaining Your Whole-Home Humidifier in Cleveland, OH
Maintaining a whole-home humidifier isn't as hard as you may think. You will want to replace the filter, evaporator pad, and water pad at least once per year. You will also need to wipe away any dust or debris that collect on the unit. Cleaning the outer body helps protect components from contamination and damage. It is also important to check the humidifier for leaks or any damaged or loose electrical connections. Of particular importance, you will want to check the water supply line and drain line, as well as the shutoff valve and the humidifier enclosure.
When to Replace Your Whole-Home Humidifier
Whole-home humidifiers have an average life span of about 10 years. At this point, they won't provide the same level of operational quality as a newer unit. They also tend to require more maintenance, cause higher utility bills, and deliver less efficiency. Upgrading your whole-home humidifier can improve your comfort, reduce energy consumption, and provide more effective comfort control throughout the home.
