WHY YOUR HOME NEEDS INDOOR HUMIDITY CONTROL

 

Humidifiers

Depending on the geographical location of your home and the time of year, your home could have uncomfortably high or low humidity indoors. The two basic solutions used for these two conditions are humidifiers and dehumidifiers:

Humidifiers add humidity to the home (typically in the colder months) to improve occupant comfort level, and dehumidifiers remove humidity from the home.

Your home could have problems without humidity control

Using a humidifier, especially in cold, dry winter months, improves indoor comfort throughout the home. A comfortable humidity level can help reduce common symptoms that may be associated with low humidity levels:

  • Dry skin
  • Scratchy throat, or
  • Electrostatic shocks

Increasing your home’s relative humidity may also allow you to lower the setting on your thermostat and still provide the same level of comfort. Lowering the thermostat setting saves on heating costs.

Your home could have problems without dehumidification

If you experience any of the following problems, you may benefit from having a Clean Comfort whole home dehumidifier.

  • A musty odor in your living areas, basement, or crawl space
  • You feel “cold and clammy” when you‘re indoors
  • Visible mold growth, condensation or water stains on the inside of your home
  • Cupped wood paneling or warped wood floors
  • Peeling wallpaper or blistering paint

Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers

Electrode steam Humidifiers

WHY DO I NEED THIS UNIT?

• Automatic whole-home indoor humidification without the need for frequent water re-filling and pad cleaning, compared to portable humidifiers.

• Ideally suited for indoor heating and cooling systems that have lower air flows and air temperature in the ductwork that might reduce humidity delivery when using an evaporative whole home humidifier.

• High humidity delivery rate helps ensure sufficient moisture content in your home, especially important for protecting household belongings that are humidity sensitive, such as hardwood flooring and custom millwork and musical instruments.

• Proven electrode steam humidification performance from the manufacturer that invented the technology over 40 years ago

Fan Evaporative Humidifiers

WHY DO I NEED THIS UNIT?

• Improves indoor comfort throughout the home, helps to reduce dry skin, scratchy throat or electrostatic shocks that may be caused by low humidity levels.

• Increases the relative humidity in your home, allowing you to lower the setting on your thermostat and still have the same level of comfort.

• Enhanced humidity delivery compared to bypass evaporative humidifiers, whose performance depends on the system air flow rate.

• Quiet operation. Can humidify when needed, even if there is no heat demand on your furnace or heat pump

Control Humitity

Have your HVAC professional show you how to adjust the humidity level in your home to make sure YOU have control of your indoor comfort!

How do Humidity Control Work?

Basics of Humidity Contorl

During cold winter months, a low humidity level in your home can make it feel like a desert. Whole home humidifiers add moisture into the ductwork of the heating system in one of two ways: by boiling water into steam and directing that steam into the ductwork, or by drawing warm air from the furnace / air handler through an evaporator pad covered with fresh water and delivering this moisture-laden water into the ductwork.

Professionally installed whole-home humidifiers are a more effective way to humidify your entire home compared to portable units, which can only deliver humidity in the proximity of the room where they’re located. Whole-home humidifiers from Clean Comfort help ensure humidity control throughout your entire home

What does humidification do for my home?

How do dehumidifiers Work?

Basics of dehumidification

A central air conditioner removes humidity from inside air while cooling your home to the temperature you have set on your thermostat. When outdoor temperatures are more moderate, your central air conditioner doesn’t need to run. But high indoor humidity can make your home uncomfortable. The solution? Lower the relative humidity in your home with a whole-home dehumidifier from Clean Comfort and enjoy automatic year-round comfort in your home.

What does dehumidification do for my home?

Lowers the relative humidity in your home to a comfortable level:

  • Reduces the cold clammy feeling that comes from lowering the temperature on your thermostat in order to reduce the humidity level in your home
  • Helps mitigate mold growth caused by high humidity in your home
  • Helps create an environment where dust mites can’t survive (when air is maintained below 50% relative humidity*)
  • Helps protect your hardwood flooring from warping when set to maintain the relative humidity in the range recommended by the hardwood flooring manufacturer
  • When installed with a DVP Series dehumidistat and a motorized damper, the DV Series dehumidifier can bring fresh, filtered air into your home and dehumidify the air at the same time.
