KANSAS CITY HUMIDIFIERS
Kansas City’s notoriously dry winters can pose a real threat to your family’s comfort, health, and belongings. When drier air from outside is used to heat the home, the result is a drop in the level of humidity. This dryness associated with lower humidity can lead to real problems such as:
- Dry, Itchy Skin
- Increased risk for the spread of viruses and bacteria, both of which travel easier in drier air
- Increased risk for nose, throat, and upper respiratory problems
- Higher Utility Costs
- Static Electricity
- Cracked/Damaged hardwood floors, walls, furniture, artwork, and musical instruments
The Solution: A properly installed whole-home humidifier
A whole home humidifier will add the proper moisture to your entire home, has no messy tanks to clean and fill, operates quietly and out of your living space. With a whole home humidifier, you’ll experience both health and environmental benefits.
While our experienced technicians will recommend the best solution for your home’s unique comfort needs, here are a few of the basic types and advantages/disadvantages of each.
Bypass – A bypass humidifier bypasses air from the supply duct to the return duct.

Fan Powered – A fan powered humidifier is mounted on the supply duct and pulls air from the warm air supply and pushes it through a moistened pad. The furnace needs to be on for best operation. Similar to bypass humidifiers, fan powered humidifiers can serve a typical home where humidity is desired but the level of control is given up for economical installation and maintenance. Fan power to tight applications and economical to maintain
Disadvantage – Furnace needs to on for humidification and requires auxiliary 120 volt power source
