Three Reasons to Upgrade to a Whole-Home Humidifier

We know the benefits of maintaining an ideal humidity range in the home—the question is no longer if you need a humidifier, but rather which one is best for you. A portable unit can help, but obviously its range is limited and you’re going to spend a lot of time refilling it. Instead, professionals like those at DuctWorks Heating & Air Conditioning recommend a whole-home humidifier that provides continuous comfort to every room in your house for:

    UV Lights Keep Your Furnace—And Air—Cleaner

    The same heating and cooling system that keeps you comfortable can also make you sick if you don’t take steps to keep it clean. The cool, moist coils inside these units are an ideal breeding ground for germs, viruses, and mold. Outside, ultraviolet rays in natural sunlight keep these tiny organisms at bay; inside, a Bryant® UV light from DuctWorks Heating & Air Conditioning kills them and neutralizes odors in your home.

    For Better Indoor Air Quality, Start With a Humidifier

    Thanks to a few sticky summer days, humidity has something of a bad rap. While a high humidity level and hot temps can be uncomfortable, experts like those at DuctWorks Heating & Air Conditioning know that a really low level is just as bad. This is especially true in winter, when indoor air can literally be as dry as a desert. When the moisture level drops to only 35 percent or lower, you’re going to notice a drop in your air quality and comfort as well.

    Why You Should Care About Dry Air

    REQUEST THE TEST: Why Radon Testing Matters for Your Minnesota Home

    Radon is an extremely toxic, cancer-causing, radioactive gas found in nearly 80 percent of Minnesota counties. All major health organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control, the American Lung Association, and the American Medical Association, agree that radon presents a significant health risk for the general population. When inhaled, the gas gives off radioactive particles that damage cells lining the lungs. In general, there is no safe level of radon. Even breathing low levels of radon carries risk.
