Lennox humidifiers and dehumidifiers in Elk River, Minnesota, help your space feel more comfortable at an energy-focused setting.
When you envision a humidifier or dehumidifier, you might think of lugging a portable model from room to room (and spilling water as you go). Lennox whole-home solutions erase all of those irritations, because they match with your HVAC system.
During the cold days, Lennox humidifiers let you avoid dry air in your home. This helps relieve chapped skin and respiratory issues. Since properly humidified air seems more comfortable, you can set your thermostat lower and save more on heating expenses.
In the summer, a whole-home dehumidifier sucks liquid from the air. This makes your space appear less muggy and hot while discouraging mold and mildew production.
Even when there’s increased humidity in the air outside, dehumidified air can help your home seem cooler. And allow you to hold your thermostat higher. Placing it only two degrees hotter can create a substantial difference and save you up to 5–7% on your cooling costs.
If you don’t currently have a Lennox furnace or air conditioner, don’t worry. Select humidity control systems can work with any brand or model. Contact the Home Comfort Heating & Air heating and cooling experts at 763-276-0617 as soon as possible. We’ll help you choose the right system for your space.
