If you currently have a portable humidifier and are looking for a more comprehensive solution, we can help. Larger households in particular will benefit from a whole-home humidification system, which can provide you with consistent and reliable moisture control throughout all areas of your home.
Whole-house humidifiers are designed to work alongside your current HVAC equipment (typically your furnace or heat pump). The steam that is produced by the humidifier is directed through your return air vents and supplied throughout your home.
Ideal indoor humidity levels are between thirty and sixty percent. Staying within this range allows you to enjoy a comfortable home environment without attracting problems such as mold. Different households will have different indoor comfort needs. Once your humidifier is installed, we recommend experimenting with different humidity levels until you find a setting that complements your household’s needs.
Ready to get started with humidifier installation? Our team at Meade’s Heating and Air is prepared to help you enjoy a smooth and hassle-free installation process. We will take the time to go over your particular needs and concerns, and present you with an upfront estimate. If you are prepared to move forward with the job, we will schedule a second visit and begin the installation.
There are three types of whole-home humidifiers available. Our team will help you select the one that best meets your specific needs and budget.
If you are looking for an entry-level humidifier, bypass units are a great option. These units will require you to have additional ductwork installed (which we can provide for you during the installation process). Bypass humidifiers also need routine cleaning and maintenance every few months.
For homeowners who are looking for a humidifier that doesn’t require as much maintenance, you may want to consider fan-powered options.
This type of humidifier typically only needs cleaning once a year.
Do you prefer something that’s top-of-the-line? Steam humidifiers might be just what you’re looking for. These systems are designed to provide greater power and higher efficiency. With a steam humidifier, you will be able to reach your preferred humidity level more consistently and much more easily.
