Whole House Humidifier During The Winter Months
Why Is My Home So Dry?
Does your home need a whole house humidifier?
Does the air in your home always feel dry during the winter months?
Are you worried that the dry air is affecting your family’s health?
Dry air in your home may be more of an issue than you realize.
For many, these cold months bring dry skin, colds, chapped lips, the list goes on.
One way to combat the effects of the dry winter air is a whole house humidifier.
You may be familiar with the small portable humidifiers, but those only benefit the room they are in and often, only a small portion of that room.
And on top of that, they can actually cause serious problems for your home.
They blow the white particles from tap water (minerals like calcium) into the air, which end up plugging your filters and cause your furnace not to work properly.
Benefits Of A Whole House Humidifier
However, whole house humidifiers can be installed directly into your HVAC system to keep the humidity levels in your home at a steady and healthy level.
Unlike portable humidifiers, whole-house humidifiers only require cleaning once or twice a year, which can be done during your regularly scheduled maintenance appointments.
There are a variety of benefits to installing a whole house humidifier.
Adding moisture to overly dry air can help keep skin and sinus passages from drying out and help ease some of the symptoms caused by the flu and common cold symptoms.
It can also help you recover faster. If you contract these winter illnesses, humidifiers keep your nasal passages lubricated, which helps speed up the healing process.
They’re good for keeping fall and winter allergies at bay, as well, and can even help cut down on snoring.
A whole house humidifier also lets you set a specific humidity level, which allows you to save energy and money.
Because humid air feels warmer than dry air, you can keep your home at a lower temperature while still maintaining your comfort.
A high-quality heating system paired with a whole house humidifier will allow you to stay warm, cozy, and healthy all winter long.
