Signs Your Home Needs a Humidifier

Do Your Home Need a Humidifier?

Is dry air wreaking havoc on your sinuses and skin this winter? You might want to consider a humidifier system for instant relief.

There are two main types of humidifiers available: small room units and whole-house systems. Room units are small and portable, but whole-house humidifiers are permanently installed within your home’s central HVAC system.

Whole house humidifiers introduce water vapor into your home’s air. Installed in your duct system and attached to your water line, a quality humidifier uses a humidifier pad, rotating drum, or steaming system to distribute moisture.

Small home humidifierBenefits of Whole-House Humidifier

Whole-house humidifiers allow you to set it and forget it! Once the humidifier system has been installed in your forced air furnace system, you can set the humidity level to automatically humidify the air as your furnace warms it. The moisture is distributed to every room through your duct work.

According to Livestrong, a whole-house humidifier can:

  • Reduce dry air that irritates sinuses and cause nose bleeds
  • Help stop the spread of certain viruses that cause respiratory illness
  • Help reduce snoring for some people
  • Help prevent chapped lips, dry throat, and dry skin
  • Help preserve the quality of porous materials like wood, including furniture, woodwork, wood floors, pianos, and other musical instruments

Humidifier Installation

Installing a whole house humidifier is a multi-step process that involves cutting precise inserts in your ducts and creating attachments to a cold water line. One Hour Air technicians can install your whole-house humidifier so can enjoy the benefits right away.

Humidifier Maintenance

To maintain the benefits of a humidifier, routine maintenance is essential. Without a professional tune-up, hard water and algae can invade a humidifier and shorten its lifespan. An expert One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning technician can keep your humidifier as beneficial to your health as the day it was installed.
