Whole-House Humidification… Summer and Winter
Humidity plays a key role in keeping your home comfortable at any temperature.
Carrier IdealHumidity System
*Call us for more details.
Carrier’s innovative IdealHumidity system constantly controls both temperature and humidity, day and night, in any season. The IdealHumidity system is the ONLY system available that can humidify or dehumidify even when there’s no need for heating or cooling. When your home’s humidity level is properly managed, you will be more comfortable at higher temperatures during the summer and lower temperatures during the winter. As a result, you’ll save money on your cooling and heating costs.
Most home comfort systems control humidity with a humidifier during heating and with normal cooling operation. IdealHumidity controls humidity in four ways.
Add Moisture WITH Heat… IdealHumidity adds moisture to the air during heating operation with the help of a humidifier. Carrier’s Thermidistat Control adjusts humidity levels automatically to help prevent condensation on windows and doors.
Add Moisture WITHOUT Heat… IdealHumidity adds moisture even when there is no need for heat. When humidity is low, the Thermidistat Control activates the humidifier and the system’s blower for humidification without heating.
Remove Moisture WITH Cool… During cooling operation, all systems will dehumidify. IdealHumidity automatically decreases fan speed for longer dehumidification cycles or increases fan speed for the best cooling performance. Yes, it adapts to the needs of your home.
Remove Moisture WITHOUT Cool… When cooling is not needed, IdealHumidity continues to monitor humidity levels in the home. As moisture in the air climbs above acceptable levels, the system turns on at very low fan speed to adjust humidity even when the Thermidistat Control is not calling for cooler temperatures.
Effects of Humidity
During the heating season, moisture evaporating from your skin makes you feel cooler than normal. Low humidity can also cause dry skin and nasal passages, growth of bacteria and viruses, static electricity, damaged woodwork and more.
During the cooling season, high humidity allows faster growth of bacteria, viruses, dust mites, mold and mildew; it causes painted surfaces to peel and woodwork to warp, buckle and rot; and it makes you feel hot and sticky.
The Carrier IdealHumidity System minimizes these problems by maintaining proper humidity levels, allowing you to feel more comfortable all year long.
