It looks like the weather has finally caught up to our holiday season, meaning you have turned on your heating system for the season. Forced air systems can heat homes very quickly, but they can also dry out your indoor air. Every home needs a certain amount of moisture, aka, humidity, to be comfortable and balanced. Otherwise you may develop itchy skin, dried out eyes, noses and throats, and even see damage to wood products in the form of splintering and cracking. One of the best ways to keep your indoor humidity levels balanced during the winter months is by using a whole home humidifier.
Why Balanced Humidity Is Important
According to the EPA, balanced humidity will register between 30-55%. When the moisture level in your home dips below 30%, it is considered to be too low, and you’ll see and feel the effects of this. Low humidity promotes poor health (because your mucous membranes dry out), more use of energy (because the air can’t hold heat) and property damage (wooden products, including flooring, can dry out and splinter). But adding moisture to your home seamlessly via a whole house humidifier can easily alleviate these problems.
How It Works
A whole home humidifier is far more effective than using multiple humidifiers throughout your home. This is because a whole home humidifier becomes part of your heating system, so it addresses all the air in your home evenly and thoroughly. Your whole house humidifier will add moisture to the air either via a cool mist or steam, something you’ll get to choose. And with our experts installing your new humidifier, you won’t have to worry about ensuing problems, because we do the job correctly the first time around.
