Whole-Home Humidifiers: Are they right for you?

Whole-Home Humidifiers: Are they right for you?

October 1, 2021

The problem of dry air.

When the furnace is running and the windows are shut, you’re losing out on that precious natural moisture that would normally keep your home feeling warm and comfortable all year round. That’s why it’s important to keep moisture levels up by using a whole-house humidifier! 

Why choose a whole-house humidifier?

  1. Humidifiers help to increase the moisture in the air. 
  2. Humidifiers reduce airborne bacteria and viruses. 
  3. They also help remove noxious airborne chemicals such as formaldehyde and benzene, which can cause breathing problems and other health issues.
  4. Most importantly, whole-house humidifiers provide humidity at a level that suits your home needs. The amount of humidity you require depends on several factors: the specific type of furnace and air conditioning system in your home, ambient temperature, and even where you live geographically.

Please note – your home may not require a whole-house humidifier. Consult an HVAC expert before making a final decision.

What is a whole house humidifier?

A whole-house humidifier is installed in the duct system of your entire house, replacing the furnace and air conditioning systems. In this way, all rooms of your home are receiving the same amount of moisture throughout the day. With a whole-house humidifier, your home’s heating and cooling system is responsible for both heating and cooling your house.
