With winter only a season away, it’s time we start to get our homes prepared. This means disconnecting outside hoses and draining faucets, as well as getting our heating systems professionally maintained. And while you’re at it, why not install a whole-home humidifier to help you get through those cold nights with even more comfort and ease?
Humidifiers increase moisture levels in the air to a level that helps to keep people comfortable. You may have heard many people complain about the heat on humid days, but dryness can cause nearly just as much discomfort. Dry air leads to dry skin and lips and dried sinuses. It may also make the air feel cooler.
Humidifiers help add moisture back to your skin, and they can also assist in protecting your furniture. Wood furniture and flooring can crack and chip when the air in an area is too dry. This can lead to costly damages and a lot of unwanted work.
Additionally, winter weather can bring some terrible cold symptoms along with it. When you have an illness, it’s more difficult for your body to go into recovery when your mucus membranes have tried out. Studies prove that moisture in the air can help you to snap out of a cold a bit sooner so you can get on with your daily life.
Today’s whole-home dehumidifier systems work with your HVAC equipment to make the entire home feel more comfortable, not just a single space by the bed or in the corner of the room. Call a local heating and air conditioning technician to install one that cycles on with your heating and air conditioning equipment to help keep humidity levels under control.
