ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) has published a new consumer brochure and white paper entitled "Facts about Humidifiers and Mold."

In recent years, the news media has run a number of stories describing damaged buildings and health problems due to microbial growth from excess moisture. Insurance companies have begun amending homeowner policies to exclude structural damage caused by mold. ARI's brochure and white paper provide an increased awareness on how to properly humidify a home or office, including guidelines on how to adhere to proper sizing standards, sound installation practices, routine maintenance schedules, and proper controls for HVAC equipment.

According to the brochure and white paper, "Humidifiers are a vital component of an HVAC system because they provide comfort and well being to occupants. They also contribute to energy savings by allowing thermostats to be set lower and help preserve woodwork and furnishings. In order to provide these benefits, humidifiers must be properly installed, properly maintained, and properly controlled."

The brochure and white paper are available for free download at www.ari.org.
