If the air in your home is too dry, you struggle with allergies as a result of air quality, or your home is never quite warm enough, despite having a working heater, then you might be in need of a whole house humidifier. You have probably seen individual and portable humidifier models that people place in a room to improve air quality; whole house units supply extra humidity throughout your home or other space. There are many benefits for having additional humidity in a room and if you’re considering this investment in Huntsville, AL, call 256-763-7535.
Portable humidifiers are simple tools. You fill them with water and they release humidity into the space until they’re out of water, or you turn them off. A humidifier for the whole house becomes part of your HVAC system. It is installed so that it adds humidity to the air moving through your duct system. Unlike the small models, you can control your humidity levels so that you never get more or less than you need or want at any given time.
Benefits of a Whole House Humidifier
There is such a thing as too much moisture in a home, but having some additional moisture can be beneficial. Some infections, viruses, and bacteria thrive in a dry climate and it may be easier to get sick. People with skin conditions, allergies, and sensitive skin often find humidity helps relieve, and even control their skin conditions. A humidifier improves air quality overall, making for more breathable air that people with allergies often appreciate.
A humidifier in your HVAC system can also help make your system more efficient, overall. A working heater is supposed to raise the temperature to your chosen setting in your home. Sometimes, however, it takes awhile for that temperature to change, or the room still doesn’t feel warm enough, despite being the right temperature. A humidifier increases the warm feeling, and you may find yourself setting the heater just a little lower.
Whether you want better air quality, or you want to help your heater be more efficient, consider a whole house humidifier in Huntsville, AL and call 256-763-7535 for humidifier installation and service.
