Whole-House Humidifier Remedy
There is no reason to go through another season with these problems—a Whole-Home Humidifier can remedy these issues.
According to medical experts, many viruses thrive in low humidity and increase the likelihood of catching colds, flu and upper respiratory infections. The American Society of Otolaryngology reports that it is important to prevent an overly dry environment because it makes people more susceptible to infection. EPA studies show that even in the smoggiest cities, the air inside most modern homes is usually at least ten times more polluted than the air outside.
A Whole-Home Humidifier will deliver the proper amount of moisture to your air and will let you feel more comfortable at lower thermostat settings. The EPA states that you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat! Increase your family’s level of comfort and protect your valuable furnishings by adding just the right amount of moisture.
“If too dry an environment is your problem, consider a humidifier. Clues like awakening with a sore throat, dryness in your nose, or even a nose bleed are signs of too little humidity.”
How It Works
A Whole-House Humidifier would be installed directly to your existing heating and cooling system. Humidity is introduced into your home’s air in the form of water vapor. This vapor prevents volatile organic compounds from entering the air in your home which is eventually breathed into your lungs. Water is supplied to your distribution tray, allowing it to flow evenly across the water panel, resulting in humidified air which is then distributed throughout your home.
A whole-house humidifier may on the surface seem to be an unnecessary luxury. This perception is deceiving. To have a healthy environment in your home, the humidity should rest between 30-60 percent. At this level wood remains moist and skin supple, house plants thrive and lungs function with ease.
