Combat Dry Air with A Whole House Humidifier

Keep Your Family Healthy throughout the Winter

Are you considering getting a whole house humidifier? It will improve the air in your home helping you and your loved ones breathe easier. It is also more convenient than carrying a portable one from room to room.  

As it gets cold, moisture evaporates from the air outside. Since your furnace uses some of the moisture available indoors to heat the air, your home can become drier than the air outside. This can have a negative impact on your family’s health. Installing a central humidifier helps maintain the right amount of moisture and keeps you and your loved ones healthier. Learn how whole house humidifiers can improve energy-efficiency, air quality and your comfort.

Benefits of Installing a Whole House Humidifier

  • Improved comfort: Your humidifier works in conjunction with your furnace. This means that it will humidify the air as the furnace warms it up allowing you to breathe and sleep more easily. Itchy skin, and a dry nose, lips and throat (which can cause snoring), are often a result of dry air. Balanced humidity will help you avoid these conditions.
  • Healthier indoor environment: Did you know that in addition to keeping your skin from drying out, humidity also reduces the risk of colds, flu and sinusitis? Higher humidity levels are also known to kill bacteria and reduce the buildup of dust particles that cause allergies. Humid air helps keep your nasal passage moist and clear, helping you recover from illnesses faster.
  • Preserves your belongings: Dry air causes static shocks that can destroy sensitive electronics. It can also make furniture joints loose, shrink or crack wooden floors, and dry out wallpaper and art work. You may also find that your piano and other musical instruments go out of tune more frequently when the air in your home is dry. With the right humidifier, you can maintain the perfect balance of moisture in your home and keep your possessions in better condition.
  • Reduces your heating bills: Moisture in your indoor air holds heat better and makes your home feel warmer. This may lead you to reduce the heat setting, and thereby, minimize energy consumption. Ultimately, this means lower heating bills!
