During winter, does the air in your home feel like something out of the desert? Dry? Scratchy? Sharp? Well, you’re not the only one to experience that in the Mesa area. Our HVAC experts have heard of similar problems before. And, quite often, the problem is a lack of humidity. That’s where central humidifiers come in.
A whole-house humidifier works with your HVAC system to deliver moisture throughout your home. With the exception of steam, they all operate off of the same basic principles. When your humidifier is turned on, water accumulates inside of an internal tray or evaporator pad. Air is then passed over these trays to gather moisture. It is then pushed into your home’s ductwork for distribution. This lowers the dryness of your air. A discussion of the benefits of central humidifiers and a quick breakdown of some major types follows.
Homeowners in Chandler rely on existing humidifiers to keep their home cool and breathing easy. But there are times when it stops working or, at least, doesn’t do as well as it can.

Though central humidifiers require less maintenance than portable ones, they’re not completely hassle free. We recommend homeowners in Mesa schedule an annual maintenance visit with one of our HVAC experts.

You can expect to spend between $400 and $1100 on the unit itself. The cost of installation will vary depending on your home’s set-up and the type of humidifier selected.
Systems with water panels must have the panel swapped out at least once a year. For more information on when to switch them, refer to the manufacturer’s information that came with the unit.
We advise against trying to DIY your humidifier installation. Putting one in not only requires you to cut into your ductwork, but also to hook up both a water and electrical line (in most cases). Because getting it wrong can permanently damage your HVAC systems, humidifier installation is something best left to the professionals.
