Humidifiers

Call Us: 801-783-0848

In order to breathe comfortably in your home, you need to have the proper level of humidity. Living in Utah means living in a desert. The humidity levels here are much lower than what is recommended for your health. In addition, using your furnace further decreases the level of humidity in the air. You need proper humidity levels, especially during winter. We have whole-home humidity solutions to fit any budget. We offer everything from small by-pass units to steam systems for maximum demand environments. We protect everything we install, which means our service comes with continued maintenance. We will keep your humidifier running for decades.

We offer install on several different types of humidifiers depending on the needs of your home. These include:

Central humidifiers – We build these into your heating and cooling system. They are specifically designed to evenly distribute humidity to your entire home.

Ultrasonic humidifiers – These produce a mist aided by ultrasonic vibration.

Impeller humidifiers – Cool mist is expelled by a rotating disk.

Steam vaporizers – This type of humidifier uses electricity. It creates a cooled steam that is then released into the air. This type of humidifier should be kept well out of the reach of children, as it uses hot water.

For more information on these humidifiers, and the other options we have to offer, talk to one of our technicians today. We will help you determine the best system for your home.

Monitoring Humidity Levels

A general rule for humidity is that it tends to be higher in the summer and lower during the winter. We know how to install a humidifier to reach the ideal level of humidity. The safe range is between 30% and 50%. As with anything, keeping this system working in a safe range is necessary for your health. If it is set too high or two low, it can cause problems. We can test the levels using a device called a hydrometer. It basically allows us to measure the amount of moisture in the air. We can then take any measure we need to and adjust your humidifier system accordingly.

Between maintenance services, we want you to know how to keep your humidifier clean, so you and your family can fully benefit from it. Depending on the unit you purchase, we will go over care according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. If you have a portable humidifier, these tips can help:

Always use distilled or demineralized water instead of tap water. Tap water can create bacteria growth.

Change the water in your humidifier often so that film and deposits do not have chance to build up. You should try and fully dry the tank before refilling it.

Don’t go more than three day without cleaning your humidifier. Remove film and mineral deposits. You can use hydrogen peroxide as a cleaning solution.

Thoroughly rinse the tank after you have used any type of cleaning solution so you don’t end up inhaling it.

If there are filters, change them regularly. This will be clear according to the manufacturer’s direction.

The area around your humidifier should always be kept dry. If the area is wet, you may need to check the level of humidity being released.

If you need to temporarily store or transport your humidifier, make sure it is empty and clean.

For humidifiers that we install directly into your air system, we will perform the required maintenance when necessary. Of course, if you notice anything that may be wrong with it, you should call us right away.
