Do You Need a Whole-House Humidifier?

How do you know if you need a whole-house humidifier? Clear signs that you have a problem with low humidity in your house include uncomfortably dry air, wood floors that start to separate, and a constant runny nose or throat irritation.

One of the possible solutions is a whole-house humidifier. Whole-house humidifiers are installed with your HVAC system and they provide your home with year-round manageable levels of humidity, keeping your entire place comfortable.

When should you consider investing in a whole-house humidifier?

If you or one of your family members experience health-related respiratory issues, the symptoms can be soothed by increasing the humidity in the air. Asthma, scratchy throats, dry nasal passages or frequent nosebleeds can be aggravated by dry air circulating through your house. In addition, overly dry environments increase the risk of catching infections. Many viruses thrive in low-humidity conditions, and dry air can result in higher- than- normal incidents of the flu.

Do you need to turn the thermostat up high to feel warm in winter?

Humidified air makes you feel warmer at lower temperatures, thereby allowing you to set the thermostat lower and save energy. Skin problems, such as itchy and dry skin, can result from cold dry air. Whole-house humidifiers increase the moisture levels inside your home, thereby helping to alleviate itchy skin and other dry air related skin problems.

Whole-house humidifiers can help make your home safer, increase comfort levels, help you save on your energy bills and protect your furniture. Furthermore, they make it is easy to maintain comfort levels throughout the whole house. Maintenance is straightforward, and you only need to clean it once to twice a year.

There are numerous benefits associated with the whole-house humidifier, and it is an excellent option to consider when building a new home or refurbishing your existing home. If you should decide to install a whole-house humidifier, be sure to use a qualified and certified HVAC contractor for the installation, thereby ensuring optimal performance and guaranteed workmanship.
