Humidifiers: Steam and Evaporative

   

                                                                                                   

 

  

WHOLE HOUSE HUMIDIFIERS - Steam Humidifiers

  

These humidifiers operate by themselves to efficiently produce a high rate of humidity. They connect directly into a home's water supply, where they produce their own steam humidification. The steam actually travels through the ductwork of the HVAC system and distributes the humidification throughout the home. 

The proper size for your home depends on many factors. These include: the size of the area, the height of the ceilings, window and insulation types, as well as your geographic location.

Steam whole house humidifiers are convenient because they require minimal maintenance.

This is the humidifier that is not dependent on your HVAC system to provide humidity to the largest of  homes -- the Aprilaire Model 800 Residential Steam Humidifier -- features truly automatic control, so there's no need to manually control the humidifier (although it can be installed in  manual mode, if desired).

This unit complements non-forced air heating sources and other specialty heating systems:

  • Has a capacity of 11.5, 20.5 or 23.3 gallons per day depending on electrical draw.
  • Humidifies tightly-constructed homes up to 6,200 square feet. 

Other Sizes are also available: Aprilaire Model 500, 600 and 700

 

Honeywell TrueSTEAM Whole-House Humidifiers   

  The TrueSTEAM Humidifier is installed out of sight, into an existing HVAC system, and features duct mounting or remote mounting.  While the duct mounting connects directly to the HVAC system, the remote mounting option allows these units to be mounted up to 20 feet away from the furnace supply duct.     

Three sizes are available: HM506 (6 gallons), HM509 (9 gallons), HM512 (12 gallons)

 

WHOLE HOUSE HUMIDIFIERS - Evaporative Humidifiers           

  • Antimicrobial coating on pad prevents the surface growth and migration of bacteria, mold, fungus and algae. 
  • 12 gallons per day (46 liters per day) will humidify a large area up to 3,000 square feet.
  • Leaves a small footprint, has lightweight and reversible components which allow for easy mounting on either warm air supply or cold air return of most forced air furnaces.
  • Components are designed for quick maintenance and service.
  • Continuous flushing reduces the frequency of maintenance in a hard water installation.
  • Many units offer a five year warranty on parts.

 

Honeywell TrueEASE Evaporative Humidifiers

  These humidifiers install with central heating and cooling systems, offering whole home comfort.  And, installations in townhomes and condominiums are also offered.

   By automatically monitoring the dryness levels, the humidity is added only when it is needed.  In addition, because humidified air feels warmer, you will be able to lower your thermostat for energy savings.

This humidifier automatically fills itself, and requires minimal maintenance by replacement of easy access pads.

Other features include:

  • Only runs air and water when needed
  • Gets rid of constant cycling of air
  • Operates quietly

 

Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier - Evaporative       

An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier is installed directly to your central new or existing heating and cooling system. Humidity is introduced into your home’s air in the form of water vapor, which prevents minerals from entering the air in your home and potentially into your lungs. Water is supplied to the distribution tray, allowing it to flow evenly across the water panel. The resulting humidified air is then distributed by your heating and cooling system ducts throughout your home.   

Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifiers were initially introduced in 1954 as the first evaporative, flow-through design humidifiers. Also offered is the fully automatic digital control which monitors outdoor temperature, indoor humidity levels, and provides convenient troubleshooting and maintenance reminders.

Benefits of Whole House Humidifiers

Saves Energy, Saves Money  They replenish the humidity in the air in a safe, water vapor form (no mist or droplets).  Proper humidity provides a more comfortable living environment at a lower temperature so you can turn down your thermostat for energy savings which will also lower your utility bills. 

Protects Your Furniture  They eliminate air in your home that is too dry.  This dry air can damage wood products like pianos, picture frames, and cabinetry.

Protects Your Hardwood Floors  They get rid of the dry air which can cause hardwood floors to shrink, gap, and crack. The right amount of moisture will protect your floors.

Eliminates Shocks   Dry indoor air can also cause static shock. As you walk across a carpet or slide off upholstered furniture, a static charge builds up in your body and results in a sudden, uncomfortable "zap" of electricity when you touch a piece of metal or other conductor. 

Health Benefits  If the relative humidity is below 30%, the air passages in your nose and lower airways in the lungs can become dry and irritated. This can cause unnecessary nosebleeds.  With people who are prone to asthma, low humidity levels can cause an asthma attack. Also, increasing the moisture can prevent your skin from becoming dry and cracked, especially if you wash your hands a lot.

Increases Comfort  In the winter, it is especially important to add moisture to the air, since dry winter air can drive down the relative humidity level in your home to as low as 15%, which is drier than the air in most deserts. Your comfort will increase and you will feel much warmer with humidity levels set between 35% to 40%.
