Are you tired of dealing with dry skin and sinuses during the winter in your home in Woolwich Township? A whole-home humidifier could help alleviate some of these symptoms and improve indoor air quality. In the winter when the heater can dry out the air inside your home, having proper moisture control is essential. While a room humidifier only works in a certain area of your home, a whole-home humidifier works with your heating system to add moisture to your entire home. Here are some benefits of installing a whole-home humidifier to help you decide which one is right for you.
When the air is too dry inside the home, it can feel colder, which causes many homeowners to turn the thermostat up higher than necessary in the winter. In addition, the heater in the winter can sometimes dry out the air excessively, and worsen issues related to poor indoor air quality issues. If you have severe dry skin, sinus problems, and other respiratory issues, you may want to consider some type of whole-home humidifier.
Air that is too dry can also damage wood furnishings and floors, along with carpets, rugs, paintings, and other valuable items. Many people think that because room humidifiers are cheaper, they are the better choice and can do the trick just as well; however, this is not always the case. Room humidifiers can cause your heating and cooling system to work harder if there are not certain moisture control settings. Whole home humidifiers are sensitive pieces of equipment that can maintain the right amount of humidity in the home.
Another benefit is that proper moisture control can reduce the chances of mold or mildew growth inside your home. Compared to room humidifiers, whole-house systems add much more controlled amounts of moisture. They also are designed to work with many types of heating systems, including heat pumps, radiant heating, and much more.
