Keep Your Skin AND Your Furniture From Cracking (913) 353-8444 or (816) 407-8444
Dry air in your home can cause itchy skin, dry nose, and sore throats, and is the perfect breeding ground for low-moisture-loving cold and flu viruses. When winter comes, you will really begin to notice dry air in your home because cold outdoor air enters the home and is heated, sucking the moisture out of the home.
Low humidity can also damage the wood in your home: furniture, hardwood floors, musical instruments and even your home’s framing, as the dry air sucks out the moisture contained within them. One of the most annoying effects of dry indoor air is static shock. As you walk across a carpet or slide off upholstered furniture, a static charge builds up in your body and results in a sudden, uncomfortable “zap” of electricity when you touch a piece of metal or other conductor.
Breathe warm, moist air and prevent:
- Dry nose, cracked, itchy skin, and sore throats
- Aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms
- Painful static shocks
- Chipping paint and plaster
- Splitting or cracked wood floors, furniture, trim and moldingWhole house humidification is exactly what it sounds like. A professional-grade humidifier can be attached directly to your existing heating and cooling system. It provides water vapor directly to your system, distributing it throughout your house via the ductwork. A humidistat is installed to control the humidifier so the desired amount of humidity is maintained.
What’s the difference between a whole house humidifier and a portable unit?
Portable units are often limited to controlling the humidity of one room. Imagine installing units in all of the bedrooms, the living room, and the kitchen. Not only would you be maintaining (cleaning and filling) several units practically every day, your energy bill would soar. A whole home humidifier can constantly monitor the relative humidity of your home and deliver the perfect amount of moisture.
