The installation of a whole house humidifier will enable the delivery of the most optimal amount of moisture to your home based upon your comfort levels. Not many people understand the full aspects about humidity or how it applies to ones’ comfort in their home. Typically humidity is associated with hot, humid summers and the discomfort that it brings. However, excessively dry air can also cause discomfort as well as many other health problems that we also experience during the winter.
Whole house humidifiers deliver healthy levels of moisture into dry air. They properly control the humidity in your home to benefit your comfort and health. If you are a homeowner in the Charleston or Mount Pleasant, SC area and you are looking for a healthier home then contact One Call Heating and Air.
Whole house humidifiers take advantage of your home’s existing duct system to deliver the ideal amount of moist air to every home in your room. By increasing the comfort levels in your home you can look to save money on the cost of electricity as well as help prevent health problems that are due to exposure to dry air for prolonged periods of time.
Whole House Humidifiers Saves Energy
If the humidity in the air is too excessive it will make you feel hotter than the temperature actually is. Dry air is in the opposite spectrum, you will feel colder than the temperature actually reflects. This will often result in a homeowner turning up the thermostat for additional heat in the home. A whole house humidifier will enable you to feel comfortable without the need to adjust your thermostats settings in some cases. This saves electricity and also will help reduce wear and tear with your home’s heating and air conditioning system.
Controlling the Humidity in Your Home
When you have a whole house humidifier installed in your Charleston home the humidity from the system is dispersed through your existing heating and cooling system’s ducts. During the winter indoor heating will help reduce the relative humidity of dry air. Dry air can cause multiple problems affecting not only your comfort but your health as well. Dry air is a factor in causing some of the following:
- Increasing the risk of catching a cold, the flu or any other respiratory illness. Cold and flu viruses thrive in low humidity environments, while dry air aggravates allergies and asthma symptoms.
- Dry air increases the risks for sore throats, chapped lips, nose bleeds, and dry, itchy eyes.
- Static electricity, which can damage your electronic equipment as well as give you a good shock.
- Dry air is also a contributor towards cracks in drywall, wood walls, paint, molding, furniture as well as flooring.
If you are looking to protect your health, and your home from the damages of dry air then a whole house humidifier is for you. The humidity in your home is monitored by the humidistat. It will sense when moisture is needed and deploy as needed. A whole house humidifier provides your whole home with protection and comfort which is something a portable humidifier cannot address.
When installed in tandem with a heating and cooling system that features a variable speed, a whole house humidifier’s benefits will be elevated for your home. If your current system does not take advantage of the numerous comfort and energy saving benefits of variable speed fan technology then get in touch with us for a quote on a variable speed fan install.
A Humidifier Can Improve Your Health
Excessive dry air can irritate the throat and lungs as well as worsen allergy symptoms of a sore throat and cough. By providing the ideal levels of humidity into the air it will help those who suffer from allergies or asthma and help them breathe easier. The ideal humidity levels in the home will also relieve and lessen the possibility of infection developing from irritated airways.
Minimal care is required for a whole house humidifier and it only requires periodic cleaning to prevent the build-up of bacteria or mold spores from entering into the home’s air. Undoubtedly, there are many benefits in having a whole house humidifier installed in your home and when it is properly used and cared for it can help relieve the symptoms from allergy and asthma sufferers.
