Aprilaire Flow-through Whole Home Humidifiers
How do you know that your home is too dry? Here are several clues to look for:
- You or family members are waking up in the morning with a sore throat, dryness in your nose or nose bleeds;
- Your family is getting more colds than expected;
- You have to keep your thermostat at a higher temperature than you’d prefer;
- Allergy and asthma symptoms are getting worse during the winter instead of better; and
- Your wood floors and furniture are chipping, cracking, and/or peeling.
Protect What Matters Most
There are many other warning signs that your home is too dry but the concept is pretty simple. If you and your family feel like you’re living in a desert than the humidity level is not high enough.
Keeping your home at a comfortable humidity level will help keep your family healthy and happy as studies have shown that many viruses prefer low humidity levels and that low levels of humidity lower our resistance to infection. Proper humidity levels will also protect your fine wood floors and furniture, as well as any painted or plastered surfaces.
What can you do to control humidity levels year-round?
In southern Ontario we enjoy some of the best weather in the world with relatively mild winters and warm summers. But we also have wildly varying humidity levels. In the winter it can be very dry and in the summer the humidity can make it feel oppressively hot.
With Aprilaire Whole Home Air Quality systems, your home’s comfort level will feel luxurious year-round. Talk to one of our Home Comfort Specialists for a no-obligation assessment and recommendations to get your home and family protected year-round.
We haven’t found anything better than the Aprilaire line of indoor air quality products for creating a home environment that protects your biggest investment and the people you care about most. Installed directly into your existing heating and cooling equipment, the Aprilaire Whole House humidifiers deliver just the amount of humidity you need by using automatic digital control.
The Genius of Aprilaire Auto Trac
Aprilaire Humidifiers are designed to accurately control the level of humidity in the home. This is accomplished by the use of an outdoor digital temperature sensor that communicates with a computer equipped control over 345,000 times per day. You get automatic humidity control that matches the weather outside instantly.
The Aprilaire Automatic Humidifier Control responds immediately to changing outdoor conditions. Remember, it’s just as important to shut the humidifier down when the humidity control reaches its set point as it is to deliver even more comforting humidity to the home when needed.
The Models 400, 600, and 700 come with this automatic humidifier control that allows the humidifier to deliver the optimum amount of humidity based on outdoor conditions. This will typically range from 20% on a really cold day to as much as 45% when it’s warmer outside. This is of importance because industry data shows that mold does not grow in humidity levels below 60%.
The bottom line is that no Aprilaire humidifier will contribute to the growth of mold, when installed, operated, and maintained as recommended and it will provide benefits that last for years.
You’ll improve your family’s health and comfort, protect your home and furniture from the negative impacts of excessively high or low humidity and you’ll save money – up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat.
We also carry replacement filters and water panels and our annual maintenance plans will ensure that your heating and cooling equipment continues to function at its best. Contact Canco today to arrange a no-obligation home comfort assessment. At Canco, we’re committed to your luxurious comfort.
