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:
- Better health—moderately humid air means relief for cracked skin, itchy eyes, sore throats, and dry coughs. It can also minimize dust mites and other allergens so you’ll have fewer respiratory symptoms, and fewer colds because healthy sinuses and nasal passages are less susceptible to colds and flus.
- Better control—a whole-home humidifier works with your Bryant® heating and cooling system for quiet, efficient delivery of ideal air. Thanks to humidity sensors and programmable service, you can easily adjust levels to suit your needs and schedule. An added benefit is better control over heating costs, because humid air can feel warmer by several degrees. That means you can set your thermostat a little lower in the winter and still feel comfortable, while using less energy.
- Better home—low humidity is as hard on your home as it is on you. Over time, it can make wallpaper peel, wood floors crack, and furniture splinter. Avoid the high cost of repairing or replacing these things by investing in a humidifier that protects you and your home from dry air.
Upgrade to Cleaner Air, TooAdding the right amount of moisture to the air goes a long way toward making you more comfortable at home, but also consider what you should be taking out of it—ask an HVAC expert about media filters, whole-home air purifiers, UV lights that kill viruses and mold in your air, or a ventilator to replace stale indoor air with fresh, temperature-controlled outdoor air. Some professionals, like those at DuctWorks, are also specially trained to help remove one of the most dangerous things from your air—radon.
