So What’s The Right Amount Of Moisture For My Home?
The optimal range for annual indoor relative humidity (RH) is between 35 and 55 percent. Unlike portable humidifiers that are only effective in the room they are located in, or other whole-house humidifiers that only deliver moisture when your heating equipment is running, Honeywell’s TrueSTEAM Humidification System is truly different. TrueSTEAM works by producing its own steam independent of the equipment operation, so your home gets moisture when you need it most. TrueSTEAM is the most eco-friendly way to humidify your home, because it uses up to 70 percent less water while delivering more moisture than traditional whole-house humidifiers. While other humidifiers rely on moisture-filled pads that can be susceptible to bacteria growth in the water and the airstream, TrueSTEAM delivers “true” steam – the cleanest form of humidification. In addition to keeping your home and family comfortable, TrueSTEAM can help reduce heating bills. Because humidified air feels warmer, you’ll be able to turn your thermostat down for savings.
Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Perhaps the best part about the TrueSTEAM is that it is installed out-of-sight by your heating and cooling professional into your home’s central heating and cooling system. It is hooked up to a water supply where it automatically produces its own steam humidification into your ductwork, which is then distributed throughout all rooms in your home. You can also forget about having to fill clunky, portable units, because TrueSTEAM automatically fills itself. And the water tank requires minimal maintenance – simply clean once a year with soap and water, and the rest of the time it cleans itself automatically.
