Installing a humidifier with your furnace is the best thing you can do to avoid the problems associated with low humidity in your home. As we discussed earlier this week, one great thing about whole house humidifiers is that they require very little maintenance. However, there are a few things you can do to ensure that your humidifier runs properly all winter long. So let's take a look at what's involved in furnace humidifier maintenance and how it can help protect your heating system.
Just like your furnace, your humidifier requires maintenance about once a year to ensure that it is functioning properly and doesn't cause any damage to your heating system. Some of the most important maintenance tasks include:
Although the tasks listed above can be performed on your own, they can also be done by a professional like Jerry Kelly during your regular annual furnace maintenance. For many homeowners, this is a much more preferable option because it takes the hassle out of maintaining their humidifiers. By having your humidifier professionally maintained, you can also be confident that it will function properly all winter long.
