During the winter months, the warm air inside the home becomes drier as the heating equipment dries it up. Overly dry air can have a significant impact on health and property. Impact on health includes dry skin, dry nasal passages, sore throat, aggravating the symptoms of colds, allergies, and asthma. In fact, many viruses thrive under low humidity levels and accordingly the likelihood of catching colds, flu, and upper respiratory infections significantly increases under these conditions.
Impact on property includes chipped paint and plaster, cracked and warped wood floors, trim, molding, and furniture as moisture is drained from the underlying wood. This kind of damage is permeant and is irreversible.
These critical health and property issues can be greatly reduced or eliminated by installing a whole home humidifier, which will deliver the proper amount of moisture into your home’s air. Besides improving the quality of the air that you and your family breath, protecting your home and valuable belongings, humidification also saves you energy. This is because humidified air makes you feel warmer at lower temperatures. According to the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, you can save up to 3% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat. Whole-house humidifiers not only make your home more comfortable but also reduce your energy usage and save you money.
