Managing the humidity in your home improves comfort, reduces power consumption and protects wood floors and furniture from cracking. Proper humidity levels of about 50 percent also support respiratory health and reduce the presence of airborne irritants. Half measures like simmering water or maintaining a large fish tank only raise the humidity in small areas of a home, but a whole-house humidifier will allow you to realize the full benefits of consistently optimized humidity.
Reduce Heating and Maintenance Costs
In the winter when your central heat is running, the air inside your home can become excessively dry. You’ll notice that your skin gets dry and your eyes feel irritated. Your furnace is also working harder to heat the dry air.
Raising humidity enables air to hold more heat. Your furnace won’t have to run as hard to warm air that has a greater level of moisture in it. Higher humidity will also make the air feel warmer to you. This precludes the necessity of turning up the thermostat and increasing your power bill.
Less running time for your furnace will prolong its life. Wear and tear will take longer to accumulate, which means that repair and maintenance costs will be lower over the long term.
How to Add Whole-Home Humidification
A professional HVAC installer from Honest Air Conditioning in Mesa, AZ, will connect a central humidifier to your ducts. It will be positioned near the furnace and connected to your home’s plumbing to obtain water.
How Does a Humidifier Work?
The running furnace redirects air into the humidifier. After that, a rotating drum or steaming system creates mist. The flowing air picks up the moisture. Once it’s humidified, the air circulates throughout the home. The humidifier will monitor and manage moisture levels.
