Humidity levels in your home can affect many things in your home, including household furnishings, skin, hair, clothing and your personal comfort. In the winter, the air in your home is typically dryer than the rest of the year. As a result, you and your family could develop dry noses, throats, lips and skin and the health problems that accompany those discomforts.
Dry air can also damage your house. Wallpaper can peel, paint can crack and wood furniture and floors could be damaged - simply because of the lack of humidity. Musical instruments can also be damaged due to shrinkage and cracks.
How does a whole house humidfier help? It balances the moisture in your air by creating water vapor and dispersing it through your ducts and vents. It is installed directly onto your existing heating and cooling system, and monitors the humidity in your home to produce the right level of moisture you need.
Another benefit to whole house humidifiers is that the filters only needs replacement about once a year, causing it to be a low-maintenance and inexpensive accessory over its lifespan.
