The air quality in your home is affected by many intricate factors.
The filtration, the pressure, & the power are all variables that contribute to the overall quality of the air in your home.
One aspect that constantly gets overlooked by many homeowners is the humidity. If the air in your home is too dry in the winter, it can lead to extremely dry, chapped skin year after year. This can be problematic for those with sensitive skin or even eczema. Also, if the air in your home is too dry, it can lead to respiratory problems. Dry air easily also can wreak havoc on the materials your home is made of, wood can dry out & eventually become warped if the humidity is too low. These are just some of the reasons that homeowners have humidifiers installed in their homes. A humidifier works by releasing gaseous water vapor into the air to raise the humidity. There are two main types of modern humidifier available for your home. There are portable humidifiers that can be put into any room, but they will only work to treat one room at a time. There are also more modern humidifiers that can be installed in-line with your existing Heating & A/C system, in order to carefully raise the humidity of your entire home. While having a humidifier installed in your modern Heating & A/C program is a greater investment up front, maintaining the humidity in your family home can help to save you lots of currency on your energy bills each week. If you are highly concerned about the level of humidity in your home, talk to a real Heating & A/C professional this month to see what kind of humidifier is right for you!
