Commercial HVAC systems often incorporate humidifiers to maintain indoor air quality and comfort. Gas Fired Humidifiers produce chemical-free humidification at a fraction of the cost of electric steam humidifiers.
Steam humidifiers are engineered to keep ducts dry by adding water in a vapor state, thereby preventing water buildup that can lead to the presence of bacteria and cause odors. Moisture from steam humidifiers is absorbed into the air within a few feet of where it enters the air stream.
In the past, steam humidifiers were primarily all-electric, but manufacturers have recently started building gas-fired units, due to their significant operating cost advantage. The additional cost of a gas-fired humidifier is often recovered over a short period of time in saved energy cost.
