What Is a Humidifier?

During the winter months, people tend to fill their homes with dry, hot air. This can cause a number of discomfitures and aliments. Humidifiers work to increase and maintain the level of moisture in a room or building. Point-of-use humidifiers are often used to humidify a single room. For an entire house, a furnace humidifier can be connected to the HVAC system of the building. Whole-house humidifiers are far more efficient than portable humidifiers and are generally quieter.

Humidifier Installation

For most people, the simplest way to humidify their entire house is to connect a humidifier to the heating and cooling system already installed in the building. This allows a homeowner to adjust the humidity level throughout the house using the thermostat. There are several different types of humidifier and what is best for your home depends on your heating and cooling system as well as your budget. Give us a call and we will provide advice as well as a free cost estimate.

Typical Whole House Humidifier Advantages

As mentioned, whole house humidifiers are much more efficient than single units that only work for a single room. By choosing a whole house system, you’ll be able to adjust the humidity in every part of your house easily through the thermostat control unit. They are also less noisy than single units, provide more balanced airflow, and only need to be serviced once every year – which can be done at the same time as your heating/cooling unit.

Humidifier Servicing and Maintenance

It is important to keep your home’s humidifier well maintained. Failure to do so can lead to bacterial growth that can cause coughs and other illnesses. In addition, if the wrong amount of moisture is expelled, condensation can collect on your walls leading to decay and mold growth. We provide regular maintenance checks to ensure your humidifier is clean and will function properly for many years. Call and ask us about how our annual plans can save you money.
