25 Gallons Per Day
Have you ever noticed how you have this problem in the winter and not in the Summer. Can you imagine what your lungs are going through? This is why people get more colds in the Winter.
The average home or building runs 50% Relative Humidity in the summer and only 12% Relative Humidity in the Winter. We have helped thousands of people improve their winter time health and protect their furniture and woodwork with the installation of a Humidifier.
Please call us. We will come to your home or business, evaluate your specific situation and recommend a solution. You will not be high pressured or obligated in any way.

Problem: Air Filters do not like Tap Water in Ultrasonic Humidifiers
We have seen a huge uptick in the use of Ultrasonic humidifiers. These are generally, table top humidifiers that are intended to put moisture in the air. While adding moisture to dry air, especially in the winter, has huge health benefits, there are much better ways to achieve this objective. During the winter an average home needs to have several gallons of water added each day in order to achieve healthy humidity levels. Ultrasonic humidifiers and Atomizing humidifiers achieve this by splattering very tiny droplets of water, with whatever concentrations of impurities, into the air. Evaporative humidifiers vaporize the water internally and expel only water vapor.
Why do Air Filters not like them?
The root of the problem is that most people do not wish to go to the store and buy several gallons per week of distilled water. Instead, they put regular tap water in their humidifiers. In this area of the country our water is very high in calcium chloride. When this calcium is distributed into the air, it circulates freely throughout the home. Eventually it ends up getting sucked into the HVAC system. If the home is using a medium to high efficiency filter, the filter stops it. Within a very short period of time the Air Filter becomes plugged to the point of interfering with the proper operation of the system.
First hand experiences?
We first began to discover this about 4 years ago. We changed a customer's Air Filter because their HVAC system was not moving enough air. Two weeks later their system quit again due to improper air flow. The Air Filter looked perfectly clean. This is because the very tiny calcium particles are white and are not visible on a white Air Filter. We changed the filter again. Two weeks later, when we changed the filter for the third time we discovered that our customer was using an Ultrasonic Humidifier with tap water. Since that day we have seen this very same scenario repeated many many times.
1. Begin using an Evaporative Humidifier. You can use a portable or one that mounts on your HVAC system for your entire home.
2. Begin using only distilled water in your Ultrasonic of Atomizing Humidifier.Type your paragraph here.
A humidifier is any device that adds humidity to a space. What we call a Whole House Humidifier is a Humidifier that is tied into the duct system of your HVAC system. It will have a water line and drain line attached to it and it will operate automatically.
Often people ask, "Why do I need a Humidifier?" Our bodies, and most of our furnishings and equipment would like to have a consistent RELATIVE HUMIDITY of about 50%. In the winter if we do not in some way add water to the air in our homes and businesses the indoor RELATIVE HUMIDITY will fall below 20% much of the time. This causes many of the mucus membranes in our bodies to crack, allowing bacteria and viruses an easy place to enter our blood stream. It also causes many of our furnishings to dry out and crack.
Many people attempt to solve this problem by boiling water on the stove, or by placing portable humidifiers or steamers around their home. While this can be effective, most of the time they actually hurt themselves more than they help. This is because they are not consistent and they cause the humidity to make wild swings several times per day. Wide swings are very hard on our furniture and reek havoc with musical instruments.
Most average homes need to have between 10 and 20 gallons of water per day added to the air during the coldest part of winter. A WHOLE HOUSE HUMIDIFIER integrated into your HVAC system and ductwork can easily do this, without you having to carry water or, watch a pan on the stove. More importantly it will be controlled by a HUMIDISTAT (like a thermostat but it measures humidity) that you set where you wish, and don't worry about it.
