Signs That You Need A Whole House Humidifier
Some people hear the phrase "dry air" and dismiss the issue as unimportant. In truth, though, having air that is too dry throughout your home can actually lead to a number of undesirable issues. Because you will be surrounded by this dry air at all times in your home, it can start to take a toll on your body, leaving your skin dry and itchy while potentially causing frequent sore throats, and even nosebleeds. However, the ill effects of very dry air don’t stop with those inflicted upon your body.
Dry Air & Your Home
If the air in your home is very dry, wooden floorboards or fixtures in your home can dry out, splitting and cracking. Paint can chip, and wallpaper may crack as well. Plus, dry air promotes increased instances of static shocks, which can prove detrimental to sensitive electronic devices.
Of course, it is necessary that your whole–house humidifier is installed and serviced by a trained professional. That is why you should schedule your humidifier installation and services with the IAQ professionals on our staff. We’ll make sure that the humidifier in your home is of an appropriate capacity for your needs, and that it is fed with water in a dependable manner.

Humidity is an important factor in keeping your home comfortable at any temperature, across all seasons of weather. How does humidity affect your comfort?
When the weather outside is warm and you’re usually running your air conditioner, high humidity gives you that hot, sticky feeling everyone hates. Air that is too humid allows faster growth of bacteria, viruses, dust mites, mold, and mildew. High humidity can also cause painted surfaces to peel and woodwork to warp, buckle, and rot.
On the other hand, during the cold months when you’re running a furnace or heater, the moisture evaporating from your skin makes you feel cooler than normal. Low humidity can also cause dry skin and nasal passages, growth of bacteria and viruses, static electricity, damaged woodwork, and more.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers minimize these problems by maintaining proper humidity levels, allowing you to feel more comfortable all year long. Our experienced consultants are trained in the benefits of indoor air quality products, including an innovative technology that can constantly control both temperature and humidity, day and night, in any season, even when there’s no need for heating or cooling. When your home’s humidity level is properly managed, you will be more comfortable at higher temperatures during the summer and lower temperatures during the winter. As a result, you can potentially save money on your cooling and heating costs.
