For whole house furnace humidifiers, Aprilaire are one of the best known brands. They are credited with being the first company to produce a whole house humidifier that actually worked well. Many have followed their lead since then, and continue to do so.
Continued development means theyíve reached the stage where air will be continually monitored and computer control will ensure that your house stays within the optimum range. Thatís a very useful feature.
Daily cleaning is not required, and filters only need to be changed every 6 months to 2 years depending on which model you have and how much you use it.
Aprilaire humidifiers can be fitted to your heating system if compatible, and will release water vapour into the air flow ducts where it is distributed throughout your home.
Unlike portable units, you canít just go to the shop and buy one. You need to hire a licensed contractor, who will be able to help you choose the best model and for your needs and then perform the installation.
