The winter isn’t only time for snow, it’s also time for the air in homes to get so dry that family members often experience static shocks.
With dry air, wood floors crave moisture, there isn’t enough skin lotion to keep skin moisturized, and eyes become dry.
Dry air even has a negative effect on long hair, making for a lot of bad hair days.
Basically, dry air can make the home environment somewhat miserable.
Fortunately, Our St. Paul HVAC company can help with humidification so that the air can be more pleasant in the winter.
Efficient Humidification System Installation
At Metro Heating & Cooling, we know very well how uncomfortable it is to have dry air in your home.
This is why we will install a humidification system to combat the dry air and make the environment much more pleasant.
The humidification process is carried out by adding water vapor or humidity to the air without changing what is called its “dry bulb temperature.”
What Is Dry Bulb Temperature?
Humidity can be added to cool and warm air.
Adding humidity to cool air is actually very common.
Moisture is added to the air by passing it over a spray of water that is at a temperature lower than the dry bulb temperature.
The water will evaporate, but the evaporated water is absorbed by the air so that the moisture content increases.
This increases the humidity, and the air temperature even drops a little.
Adding humidity to warm air is somewhat similar in that the air passes through a spray of water, but the temperature is higher than the dry bulb temperature of the air.
Just like when adding humidity to cold air, the water evaporates into the air and gets absorbed by the air.
Due to the higher dry bulb temperature, the air gets a little warmer.
To achieve this process, a specific device is installed to make it happen.
This device is installed on the HVAC system so that the humidity comes through with the air to give you freedom during the humidification process.
Professional Humidification Installation
To achieve this level of convenience and comfort, it’s important to have your home humidification system installed by professionals.
Not opting for professional installation can lead to any number of the four most common mistakes that occur during DIY installations.
1. Wrong Size
It is imperative to make sure the humidification system is the right size for the home.
There are many factors that are taken into account when sizing the system, including:
- Square footage
- Space design
- How well the structure is insulated
- Type of heating system
2. Wrong Type
There are several types of humidification systems on the market, but each design works best in certain environments and conditions.
Unless you know what you need, and the differences are, you won’t be able to get the right one for your home.
3. Incorrect Installation
If the installation location is hard-to-reach, then it means the system may not be maintained properly.
A professional HVAC Engineer will be able to find the best location and can carry out the system’s maintenance as required.
4. Neglected maintenance
It’s important to maintain the HVAC system as a whole.
Having regular inspections and then the system repaired when needed, it’ll last longer and won’t become a danger.
Professional installation leads to many benefits, including:
- You eliminate the static shocks,
- Home furnishings won’t dry out and deteriorate
- Respiratory problems are reduced,
- You will feel a lot more comfortable.
- You may even save a fortune on moisturizer or moisturizing hair care products
There are different ways to achieve a return on this investment.
If you need a humidification system installed, it is good to have the professionals take care of the task for you.
