AirIQ: The Benefits of Steam Humidifiers

 

John Cotton, Tech Support and Project Coordinator at Field Controls, spoke on this episode of AirIQ about the benefits of installing an indoor steam humidifier. Indoor heating systems draw moisture out of the air and adds personal discomfort, drying of the skin, and static build-up that can cause damage to electronics.

Cotton recommended the installation of a steam humidifier to solve dry-air issues. Steam humidifiers deliver a regulated flow of humidified air, which provides comfort, and prevents wood from drying out.

“The proper installation of a steam humidification system is important,” Cotton said. “People need to ensure there is the correct-sized ductwork set up, so the humidifier doesn’t restrict the airflow of the system, and cause poor airflow.”

Cotton recommended 20×19 ductwork for the steam humidifier to perform effectively. There are different steam humidification units available, depending on the size of the home.

Each steam humidifier comes with a regulator that a person can control the humidity output levels. The unit shuts down when it reaches the optimum humidity level. For steam humidification maintenance, Cotton said the unit self-drains water build-up every 24-hours to reduce mineral growth inside the unit, and there is a zinc anode inside that draws the minerals to it.

Cotton recommended replacing the zinc anode annually. Use a vinegar/water cleaning solution to clean the unit as necessary.
