Many homeowners experience significant discomfort during the winter due to dry indoor air. This situation can be easily rectified with a humidification system that maintains a suitable level of humidity in the air. You, too, can experience improved indoor air quality when you add a humidifier and boost the comfort in your home.
The following are three advantages to having a whole-home humidification system installed in your forced-air heating system:
- Improves indoor air quality: Homeowners experience significantly more favorable indoor air quality when whole-home humidifiers are used, adding comfort for family members by reducing common problems such as dry and chapped skin, dry eyes and dry nasal passages. Residents of homes with humidifiers experience fewer static electricity shocks and often see a reduction in damage to wood furniture and wood floors that can result from dry air.
- Increases home value: Whole-house humidifiers add value to your home as buyers place value on homes equipped with updated HVAC systems, including state-of-the-art equipment such as whole-house humidifiers. Energy savings occur as well, as moistened air feels warmer than dry air, allowing you to turn down the heat a degree or two.
- Whole-house humidification: Unlike a portable humidifier, the whole-home model introduces humidity in the form of water vapor directly into the air that’s flowing through your forced-air heating system. Thermostatically controlled and monitored, the whole-house humidification system maintains an even level of moisture throughout the year.
One of the common complaints we hear about winter weather is dry indoor air, and the colder the weather, the dryer the air. Adding a humidifier to your home for optimal indoor air quality adds comfort, improves indoor air quality, and increases the value of your home.
