If your indoor climate is too dry, or too humid, it may be time to upgrade to a new Central Humidifier.

Too Dry or Too Humid? What’s the problem?

What’s wrong with sitting in a dessert? Nothing, if that’s where you live. If you’ve dealt with the dry air of a furnace, you know the pains of dry skin, bloody noses, itchy throat and eyes, and more. But, did you know it can crack and age your furniture, paintings, and woodwork? Dry air is harsh but having too much humidity can be just as irritating. Having too much moisture in the air can cause health problems caused by mold and bacteria. This can be especially problematic for people prone to allergies and asthma. If you’re ready to take control over your indoor air quality, a central humidifier is a great start. Read on to explore how humidifiers work and want to expect.

2 kinds of Central Humidifiers:
Automatic or Manual

There are two types of Trane Central Humidifiers that can be connected to any brand of furnace: automatic and manual.  An automatic humidifier has a sensor that self-regulates humidity levels in home areas as large as 4,000 square feet. With a manual humidifier, levels are preset and easily adjusted through the owner’s thermostat. To determine which kind of whole home humidifier is best for your home or business we need to consider the type of space it’s going into, the type of heating and cooling system you have, and the type of thermostat that is currently in place.

The Quick Version of How Central Humidifiers Work

Whole home humidifiers regulate the moisture of up to 4,000 square feet using a humidity sensing control as it’s measurement tool. The control is what cycles a humidifier on and off to keep the air regulated to recommended levels of
30-50% humidity. The humidifier is fed a water line that supplies the water to the distribution tray, which then feeds water vapor into the air, creating humidity. The humidified air is then distributed throughout your home through your duct-work, creating a more optimal living environment.


Humidifier Information to Ponder

    • Easily done with our VIP maintenance plan
  • Trane Humidifiers work effectively with any type of water
  • Humidity is lost at a faster rate than heat
    • Fireplace dampers provide an excellent escape route for humidity. Keep these closed when not in use.
