A central humidifier is generally fitted to the forced air system of the home and fed water via a connection to the home's plumbing system. This is then able to bring dry air relief to the entire home. A good option is a ‘trickle’ type humidifier. Although central humidifiers will help to eliminate dry air, if not maintained properly, other problems may arise. For example, bacteria or harmful fungus may start to form. Too much condensation caused by the humidifier can create the ideal atmosphere for mildew and mold. If mold starts to develop, this could produce a hazardous environment.
Before you go ahead and install a central humidifier in your home, make sure you are familiar with how it works and ways to maintain it so as to prevent any negative effects on your home and health. If your home already has a central humidifier, how well is it working? When did you last have it inspected? When we think that the air we breathe inside our homes could be damaging our health, we can see the importance of having the homes central air system checked regularly.
