Power vented humidifier designed to specifically deliver the optimal amount of humidity into the air stream. Ideal for clients who are having issues with dryness, dry noses, static shocks, and wood products drying out.
This style humidifier has been tested and proven to handle the elements while requiring minimal maintenance or up keep. Beware of by-pass models that rob air performance and steam models that require extensive maintenance, upkeep, and are not reliable. An ideal solution to adding humidity as well as allowing you to save money on heating costs.
How It Works
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 Aprilaire Water Panel®. The resulting humidified air is then distributed via your heating and cooling system ductwork throughout your home.
Why Aprilaire Whole-Home Humidifiers?
Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifiers were introduced in 1954 as the first evaporative, flow-through design humidifiers. That’s right—we invented the very first, truly effective, whole-home humidifier. Since then, Aprilaire Humidifiers have been imitated—but never duplicated—and continue to lead the way in whole-house humidification systems.
Whole-Home Humidification vs. Portable
Too much humidity can be as much of a problem as too little humidity. Unlike portable units the Aprilaire Whole-Home Humidifier continually monitors relative humidity levels in your home, then works to deliver the right amount of moisture, never too much or too little to your entire house. Aprilaire Humidifiers don’t require the daily cleaning and disinfecting that many portable units require and you never need to worry about the risk of microbial organism growth due to standing water.
“Humidifiers are commonly used in homes to relieve the physical discomforts of dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. The moisture they add to dry air also helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, splitting woodwork, and cracks in paint and furniture.” US EPA
