Gone are the days of the small portable humidifier that you would take from room to room. Now, you can humidify your whole home at once and it is just as easy has using your HVAC. Here are some of the reasons that you might want to take advantage of that.
IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH
Air that is too dry can certainly be uncomfortable, especially on the skin and sinuses. But it can also cause health issues, making lung problems like asthma worse, exacerbating skin issues such as eczema and increasing allergy symptoms. In addition, there are many bacteria and viruses that prefer a dry environment in which they will proliferate. Putting moisture in the air can help with all of these potential problems.
LOWER YOUR ENERGY BILLS
Humid air makes you feel warmer so you will be comfortable with the heat at a lower setting. Every degree that you lower your thermostat can result in as much as 4% savings on your bill.
EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR HOME
Dry air can have damaging effects on your home too, causing not just the walls and floor to peel and crack, but also your belongings. Furniture, electronics, artwork, instruments and more can be damaged when they get too dry.
Whole house humidifiers can be installed in your heating and cooling system – whether it’s new or existing. To find out more about whether it’s the right choice for you, visit Authorized Heating & Air Conditioning. Inc. at www.authorizedheatingandair.com.
