You’ve probably heard people complain about humidity levels in the air before. When forecasts explain that humidity levels will be high that day, you usually dress for warm weather. Many people complain about feeling hot and sticky in a humid climate and some even complain about the effects on their hair. But did you know that too little humidity can have an impact on your home and the people who reside there as well?
At Russell’s Heating and Air Conditioning, we provide and service whole-house humidifiers to customers in the Beaumont area who are concerned about low humidity in the home.
3 Reasons to Choose a Whole-House Humidifier
There are a few different reasons homeowners choose to install a whole-house humidifier. Sometimes, health trouble calls for this installation, which injects moisture into the air through the ductwork in your home. Other times, humidity problems are so severe that a humidifier can actually protect your home. Here are the top three reasons our customers choose to install one.
- Comfort – Dry air leads to dry skin and chapped lips, which means you may not feel comfortable at home and you might find yourself frequently reapplying lip balms and lotions. A humidifier can restore an adequate level of humidity to the home so that you can relax.
- Health – When people are ill, some moisture in the air actually helps them to bounce back more quickly, adding moisture back to the sinuses, making it a little bit easier to breathe and recover during a respiratory infection like a cold.
- Home – Finally, a whole-house humidifier can actually help to protect your wood furniture and floors from damage. When the air is too dry, these can chip or crack over time. You may also notice paint chipping or drywall cracking in some extreme cases. If low humidity is a pressing problem in your home during certain seasons, a humidifier may prevent this from becoming a larger issue.
We offer professional installation and service should your existing unit run into problems.
