Dry air is one of the biggest problems heating and cooling systems face during the colder months. Of course, Las Vegas winters rarely hit extremely low temperatures but heaters still tend to blow out warm dry air during normal circumstances. Humidifiers address this issue quite well, incorporating moisture in the air and allowing homeowners to keep their indoor humidity at healthy levels.
There are many health risks linked to dry air including chapped lips, dry skin and other allergies. This is why experts recommend taking good care of your humidifiers to avoid these complications. Let our skilled HVAC professionals at Cal Air show you a few tips about humidifier maintenance.
What Are Water Panels?
Many air conditioning and heating companies offer humidifiers as either a standalone unit or as a retrofit to existing HVAC systems. These devices pass heated air from your furnace into a water panel where it mixes with water vapor to increase humidity. Over time, water panels can get clogged with mineral deposits from their water sources. When this happens, airflow is restricted and air quality is compromised.
Changing Water Panels
Our experts recommend replacing the water panel on your humidifier at least once every season. You may increase the frequency of changes depending on the quality of your water source (hard water has more minerals dissolved in it). You can avoid forgetting this important maintenance step by timing it with your air filter changes.
Contact your local HVAC contractors and sign up for a routine maintenance agreement so you never miss out on any necessary inspections and tune-ups. Make sure that you include your humidifier when undergoing regular service visits to prevent problems in the future.
