HumidifiersPrint

A humidifier is a household appliance that increases humidity (moisture) in a single room or in the entire house.

For buildings with a forced-air furnace, a humidifier may be installed into the furnace. They can also protect wooden objects, antiques and other furnishings which may be sensitive to damage from overly dry air. In colder months, they may provide substantial energy savings, since as humidity increases, occupants feel warm at a lower temperature. Bypass humidifiers are connected between the heated and cold air return ducts, using the pressure difference between these ducts to cause some heated air to make a bypass through the humidifier and return to the furnace. The humidifier should usually be disabled during the summer months if air conditioning is used; air conditioners partially function by reducing indoor humidity.

24 Heating & Cooling provides 24-hour assistance with humidifier services and repairs in Chicago and suburbs.

Client testimonial

Thank you very much for installing a brand new heating & air conditioning system in my Chicago home. You were right in telling me my old system was old and inefficient and energy wasting. - Alina, Chicago
