In a central heat and air conditioning system, air filters block dust and other harmful particles from getting in the vents and into your air circulation. The water panel of a humidifier functions similarly, but instead of blocking anything, it actually “adds” moisture to the air coming from your HVAC. Just like air filters, the water panel needs regular cleaning or replacement.
One of the biggest problems with heating systems in the winter is dry air because a lot of humidity is lost during the heating process. Dry air is linked with health complications such as dry skin, mouth, and eyes, and can even worsen the symptoms of allergies and other respiratory conditions. Humidifiers answer this problem pretty well but their water panels need to be taken care of to do their job. Let our experts at M&M show you how.
Signing up for routine heating repair and maintenance with your local HVAC company is the easiest way to keep any system in shape, including your humidifier. It can be difficult to keep track of all the necessary inspections and tune-ups needed to keep your system in good shape. Allowing a professional to do this for you will help resolve this issue.
Water Panel Changes
Water coursed through the panel can cause mineral deposits and other contaminants to accumulate and eventually clog the system. Depending on the condition of your water supply, this whole process can take weeks or months to happen. Our experts recommend changing the panels at least once every season to avoid complications.
How to Change Water Panels
Replacing the water panel on your furnace and humidifier system is similar to replacing an air filter. Make sure the entire unit is turned off first before taking any steps. If you are uncertain about how it’s done, it’s better to leave it to a licensed professional.
