Humidity is the amount of moisture in the air. Improper humidity levels can make your home uncomfortable to live in and may cause damage to both the inside and outside of your home. The right humidity levels will help your home feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Turning on your forced hot air heating system in the winter removes even more moisture from the air, which can make your home dry and uncomfortable. One way to alleviate this problem is to install a whole-house humidifier, which works in unison with your HVAC system to disperse moisture throughout your home.
A whole house humidifier:
- Can help save on energy bills – you’ll feel more comfortable at a lower temperature
- Reduces dryness
- Helps eliminate static cling and electricity
