A whole–house humidifier is a device which is integrated directly into your existing HVAC system. A humidistat, which is responsible for the regulation of humidity in your home, will call for the humidifier to come on when levels are too low. A water solenoid valve opens up, allowing water to come into the system and to makes its way to the distribution tray. When heating your home, warm air pulls moisture from the evaporator pad, and this moisture is distributed throughout the house via forced air distribution. There are a few different types of the whole–house humidifiers, but they all work on the same principle: keep the right amount of humidity in the air, and you can live more comfortably.
In a warm, sunny climate, it is not uncommon for the air to dry out to a degree below ideal humidity levels. When this happens, a number of different problems may develop. You may find that your skin is itchy and dry, or that you frequently wake up with a sore throat. If nosebleeds are a common nuisance, the dry air in your home may be to blame. Not only can low humidity levels result in health and comfort issues, but they can also lead to issues with property damage. Paint can chip, wooden floorboards and furniture may split, and your wallpaper can begin to peel away from the surface. All of these symptoms are precisely why humidifiers in Yucaipa, CA matter so much. By injecting the right amount of humidity back into the air, a good humidifier can resolve many comfort and air quality issues.
If your home has too little moisture in the air or not enough it can cause big problems. Here at Russell’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we have years of experience offering humidifier and dehumidifier installation and repair services. These are a few of the issues that we deal with due to either too little or not enough moisture.
If your home’s air is too humid it will likely feel stuffy and uncomfortable. In addition to comfort issues, you risk more mold growth in your kitchen or bathroom areas. Mold requires moisture and oxygen to reproduce. If you have too much humidity in your air it will make it easier for mold to grow. Also, dust mite populations tend to increase in humid environments as well.
The air in the desert often gets dry during the winter. This can cause dust levels to increase and it can also cause your furniture or paintings to dry out and crack. If you notice that your hands or lips get dry this could also be caused by low humidity.

What is the difference between a humidifier and a dehumidifier?
In California, you will likely need both a humidifier and dehumidifier in your home. You may also, perhaps, have been told one or the other is better for your house. Knowing the difference between a humidifier and a dehumidifier is crucial.
Humidifiers and dehumidifiers actually have opposite functions. Humidifiers put moisture into your home’s air. Dehumidifiers, on the other hand, take moisture out of the air. Humidifiers are most often used in the winter, while dehumidifiers are an important way to combat spring and summer humidity.
How to know if I need a humidifier and/or dehumidifier?
As mentioned above, in California, you may need both a humidifier and a dehumidifier. California homes have to deal with both humid and dry weather seasonally. If you are confused about which one to purchase, you can ask a technician from Russell’s Heating & Air Conditioning.
A good rule of thumb is to measure the humidity levels in your home. If the humidity level is below 30%, then you should consider a humidifier. Humidity levels over 50% require a dehumidifier. Anything between 30% and 50% is normal. Keep in mind that your home’s humidity levels will likely change with the seasons, so measure in different weather conditions to get the most accurate information.
What size humidifier/dehumidifier do I need?
Both humidifiers and dehumidifiers come in multiple sizes. There are portable humidifiers and dehumidifiers as well as whole-house models. Both are sized based on their capacity and the room size they cover. For example, a humidifier with a 7-9 gallon output per day will work in a 1000-2000 square foot home.
Because humidifiers and dehumidifiers are sized based on the square footage of the space, the right size is easy to choose. Just check a handy online chart and pick the size dehumidifier or humidifier that will work. One of our technicians can also help you make this decision.
How long does humidifier and dehumidifier installation take?
If you purchase a whole-house humidifier or dehumidifier, you will need to have it installed. Installation of one of these appliances usually takes 2-4 hours. If you have both a humidifier and a dehumidifier installed, it will take a little longer. A time estimate will be provided with your quote.
What are the benefits of a humidifier and dehumidifier?
The biggest benefit of a humidifier and dehumidifier is that they keep the humidity levels in your home correct and constant. This can create big changes in your health and happiness. Below we’ve listed the top benefits for each appliance.
