Whole Home Humidifiers

The dry climate of St George, Utah combined with the drying effect from running a furnace can leave our skin and eyes feeling dried out. 

Did you know that running your furnace can deplete the moisture that is in the air, resulting in dry skin, dried  lips, dry eyes, nosebleeds, even cracked woodwork? And as referenced by Vicks (the cold medicine manufacturer), a dry environment allows the flu virus to live longer.

If you are concerned with the dryness that living in St George, Utah can pose to your health and well being, consider the benefits of a whole home humidifier.

We woke up at 3 am to water dripping through our ceiling. Black diamond was at our home that afternoon to diagnose the problem with our AC. Within 2 days it was fixed. Our repair man was super friendly and got the job done quick. Hopefully we don't have any issues again, but if we do, we will for sure use black diamond again!read more

What an awesome company! Lance came in and did a tune up on our heating and air system. He found a small issue with our contactor, showed me a photo of what he had found, explained why it was a concern, wrote up a quote and even offered to clean up the small amount of dust that'd fallen from the attic. He was professional without being pushy. I'd highly recommend them!read more

Amazing service! Black Diamond Experts sent Lance to clean our furnace. He did a thorough job, didn’t rush, walked us through each step, and gave us a wealth of knowledge for maintaining our furnace. The price was reasonable and he had parts to replace a few things on our current unit already with him. He was not pushy and tried to offer us the most economical options. He was so polite and wasn’t there to make a sale but rather to help us out. Thanks Black Diamond Experts!read more

Bypass, Fan & Steam Whole House Humidifiers

The bypass whole house humidifier, fan powered humidifier, and steam humidifier are three of the most common humidifier types.

Bypass Whole House Humidifiers

Bypass whole house humidifiers are quiet and less mechanical than other types of whole house humidifiers. Using a water soaked medium, air from the furnace circulates through creating moisturized air, which is then recirculated into the air ducts. 

Pros
Operates more quietly than models that contain fans.
Less opportunity for malfunction because of less moving parts.

Cons
Because the bypass whole house humidifier requires the furnace to operate it is not as efficient as models with fans.

Through the process of creating water vapor some heat is lost in the process. 

 

Fan Powered Whole House Humidifiers

Fan powered humidifiers can produce more humidity than a bypass humidifier as they have a built in fan to blow air across a water soaked medium or pad.

Pros
A gallon more humidity can be produced by a fan powered humidifier in comparison to a bypass humidifier. 

Cons
Having a fan makes this type of humidifier more audibly noticeable. 

Steam Humidifiers

Steam is generated by heating a canister of water with an electric heating element. The steam is delivered into the furnace and then circulates throughout the house.


Pros
Steam humidifiers are cleaner and helps to avoid bacteria growth. Because steam humidifiers produce their own heat they can be more efficient than alternative humidifiers.

Cons
They have an initial higher cost and can cost more to maintain. 

What You Should Know About Whole House Humidifiers

Yearly Maintenance

Yearly maintenance is recommended by manufacturers. Most homeowners will be able to do the maintenance themselves.  A basic cleaning and replacing of the water soaked medium/pad is recommended once a year. However, if you have a steam humidifier, we recommend having a professional handle the yearly maintenance for your safety. Steam humidifiers may also periodically need their canister (steam producing tank) and probes replaced.

Monitor the Humidity Levels

It’s important to monitor the level of humidity in your home. Too little humidity can lead to dry skin, dry eyes, and even cracked woodwork. Too much humidity can lead to mold growth. A humidistat is a great tool to have for monitoring your humidity levels. Many humidifiers come with humidistats.
