Low humidity levels in your home or business can cause problems with your health, wood surfaces, and electronics. When the humidity is too low, you can be more susceptible to colds, have dry skin, nosebleeds, and respiratory problems. It can also lead to a dry, scratchy throat, and static electricity.
How Does a Whole-House Humidifier Work?
A small, portable unit will only be able to take care of humidity levels in the area where it is situated. Humidity levels decrease sharply in your home when the weather is cold and you have your heat turned up to keep the interior comfortable. A humidifier helps by adding moisture into the air to increase humidity levels. When you invest in a whole-house humidifier, you will have a system that provides whole-house coverage.
The whole-house humidifier is attached to your HVAC system and is more convenient than a portable unit. A humidifier will help protect your health, providing the moisture your skin needs to stay healthy throughout the year. You won’t need to worry about filling your humidifier because it’s connected to the HVAC system. Humidity is maintained throughout your home with a whole-house humidifier once you set the system to the humidity levels you want. You will see a decrease in static electricity, and you should feel more comfortable overall.
Benefits of Installing a Whole-Home Humidifier
Precise Humidity Regulation
With a whole-home humidifier installed in your home, you can regulate the humidity in your home with precision. You won’t have to worry about areas that are difficult to reach because the system doesn’t rely on a small, portable unit.
Healthier Living Environment
When you are concerned about respiratory health issues, a whole-home humidifier can make a big difference. It provides a healthier environment for your skin, lungs, and nasal tissue. You are less likely to catch a cold when humidity levels are corrected with a humidifier.
Protection for Furniture
Furniture can become dry and cracked when humidity levels get too low. Protect your wood furniture by maintaining the humidity levels in your home.
When the air is full of moisture, you aren’t going to feel as cold. When you use a humidifier, you are less likely to turn up the heat to warm up your home. This will save you money on heating costs over time.
It is more comfortable to sit in an environment with adequate humidity than in one that is dry. Your skin might become itchy, or you may feel like you are getting sick when the home is too dry for your comfort.
