Some find it hard to believe that humidity is actually good for you. However, it is important to understand that too much or too little can actually be damaging to your health. There needs to be a perfect balance of humidity in the air, as it keeps the air balanced and healthy.
What Happens When Air Is Too Dry?
Dry air can cause some serious health issues, including chapped skin, throat irritation and stuffy noses. It can even cause your paint to chip, wallpaper to peel and furniture to crack. If the air is too wet, it can result in the growth of mold, bacteria, dust mites and numerous other allergens.
Therefore, it is important to have that perfect balance of humidity in your home. The best way to achieve that balance is by having a whole home humidifier installed by ABEL Heating and Cooling.
What Exactly Is A Whole Home Humidifier?
This is a device that is directly installed into your home’s HVAC system as well as the plumbing so that it can moisturize the air within the entire home. It is a permanent installation, unlike the humidifiers that you can buy from the store and place on your tabletop or dresser to humidify a single room. A whole home humidifier is extremely efficient and effective in maintaining the perfect balance of humidity in the home.
Why Should You Choose a Whole Home Humidifier?
The air that comes from your home’s HVAC system (furnace or air conditioner) can significantly cause the air in the home to become dehydrated. The indoor air quality suffers dramatically because of this. With a whole home humidifier installed, the air is moisturized in the HVAC system before it enters into your home.
Unlike portable humidifying solutions, permanently-installed whole house humidifiers require minimal maintenance. They’re also more most cost-effective in the short- and long-term due to less water and electricity usage. Plus, they’re installed out-of-sight so you don’t have to worry about having a huge eyesore on the side table in the living room for everyone to see when they come over for a visit.
