Low humidity could be a problem in your home throughout much of the year. It’s a condition that makes your home less comfortable and causes health issues and other problems. A whole-home humidifier can make your home more comfortable by treating the air.
What Is a Whole-home Humidifier?
A whole-home humidifier is installed in your home’s heating and cooling system. It will add moisture to the air that passes through it when needed. After it’s installed, the HVAC technician will show you how to keep it properly maintained.
Benefits of a Whole-home Humidifier
Dry air can cause your skin to chap and crack. By having proper humidity in your home, you will feel and look better.
Low humidity also dries out your respiratory system. You can experience dry or bloody noses, a dry throat, and discomfort in your chest. Additionally, cold and flu viruses thrive in low humidity. You’ll reduce your chances of getting sick by having the optimal level of humidity in your home.
Dry air will damage your home. It can cause paint and wallpaper to peel off the walls. If your home has wood floors, low humidity damages them. Your floors may separate and develop gaps.
If you’re often tossing and turning when trying to sleep, low humidity may be the problem. You’ll get a better night’s sleep when your home has the right amount of humidity. You won’t be as tired during the day and will feel more alert.
