Is your home too dry? Homes can easily suffer from lack of humidity in the winter. If you suffer from dry skin, bloody noses, itchy skin, an excess of static electricity, drying or cracking of wood products (such as cabinets, flooring, etc), your home could be too dry! Ladies know what we are talking about when they brush long hair and it decides to defy gravity.
Luckily, there is a solution. That solution is adding a humidifier to your warm air heating system. These humidifiers are automatic, meaning you can set the level of humidity you want and the system will operate on its own. You can, of course, modify the amount of humidity you want in your home over time. The moisture created by the humidifier system is then distributed throughout your home using your pre existing ductwork. There is no need to have unsightly stand-alone units clogging up much needed space in your home. Simply add an automatic humidifier to your system, and let it do all the work for you.
In addition to making you feel more comfortable, did you know that adding a humidifier can help save money on your heating costs? Just like how humid days in the summer can feel warmer, adding humidity to your home can make it feel warmer during the colder months. Most individuals report that they can lower their thermostat settings to one or two degrees less than normal and still feel comfortable. Plus, it’s cheaper to add water/moisture to the air in your home with a humidifier than it is to burn precious oil, gas, or wood.
Of course Home Air Plus can show you the different models and install your new humidifier.
