Fall is officially here, and winter is right around the corner. With the drop in temperature also comes a drop in humidity for homeowners in Cincinnati. Dry winter air can be a problem for your family and your house, causing all sorts of discomfort. Luckily, we have a solution for you: a whole home humidifier!
How does a whole home humidifier work?
A whole home humidifier adds moisture to the air inside your home when humidity levels are too low. Depending on the model you choose, they may be installed within your home’s duct system to operate with your heating and cooling systems, or you may choose a console-style model which stands inside your home. Bypass, fan-powered, and steam whole home humidifiers are available.
Benefits of a whole home humidifier
Installing a whole home humidifier offers many great benefits, including:
• Convenience: A whole home humidifier has the power to humidify your entire home, unlike a portable room humidifier, which only has the capacity to treat a certain amount of space. With a whole home model in place, you won’t have to worry about moving your portable humidifier from room to room, or purchase multiple units to treat various areas.
• Improved health: Viruses love dry environments! Without proper humidity, your family will be more likely to catch the nasty bugs going around in the winter, and be at an increased risk for infections. A whole home humidifier adds much-needed moisture to keep these pathogens at bay, creating a healthier indoor environment. Plus, added moisture helps keep your allergy and asthma symptoms at bay and helps you avoid irritated noses, throats, and eyes caused by dry air.
• Better heating efficiency: When your indoor air is properly humidified, you’ll feel warmer. By using your whole home humidifier, you can keep your thermostat lower during heating season. You’ll save money without sacrificing comfort.
• Protection: Dry air can damage household furnishings and elements including wood, paint, electronics, and artwork. A whole home humidifier keeps humidity levels in the appropriate range to protect these sensitive items.
