If your home shows signs of a serious lack of humidity, you might experiment with different methods for creating moisture in the air. Portable humidifiers are among the most common ways increase humidity, but only serve the room in which they’re placed. They require a lot of monitoring so as not to run dry, and cleaning to keep mold at bay. Not very efficient. The best way to introduce humidity into your home, in a healthy and clean way, is by installing a whole house humidifier.
A whole house humidifier can help save money on your overall heating costs by providing the air moisture necessary to maintain a pleasant temperature. Your furnace will run less often and that’s a money saver. Our whole-house HVAC humidifiers are efficient, quiet and create an atmosphere of comfort.
Signs You Need to Increase Humidity
You can easily tell if your home is too dry. Indoor plants might need more frequent watering, your floors may be creakier than usual, you’re constantly on the verge of developing a cold, or your skin might be painfully dry. Here are some other signs of insufficient humidity in your home:
- You may feel that itchy, dry skin, nosebleeds, and a sore throat are just nuisances to be endured during the winter months. Lack of humidity in your home can cause discomfort, and even promote colds and viruses. Banish your winter distress by installing a whole house humidifier.
- Static electricity builds as a result of a lack of humidity. Unattractively clinging clothes, or that small shock you get each time you touch anything metal is a sign you’re suffering from insufficient humidity in your home.
- Are you frequently repairing your wooden chairs and tables that seem to come apart without warning? Do you have that creaking step on your staircase? Lack of humidity in your home can cause wood to split, or dry out. Preserve your furniture, and your floors, by introducing a humidifier into your HVAC system.
- If your air quality is compromised—due to a lack of humidity—you can be risking the health of those with breathing conditions such as asthma or COPD. Contact Mountain Air for installation of your whole house humidifier, and prevent dangerous symptoms.
