Whole House Humidifiers Are Good for Your Health and Home

Family Relaxing Indoors Playing Chess And Reading BookInstalling a whole house humidifier has a number of benefits for your family’s health as well as for maintaining your home’s value.

Overly dry air throughout our homes is a condition many of us deal with when our furnaces kick on during the winter months. Low humidity has a direct impact on our health and comfort, as well as on the condition of our homes and energy costs.

  • Staying Healthy
    Many viruses thrive in low-humidity environments leading to a greater chance of catching the flu, colds, and other respiratory ailments. We can also be more susceptible to infection in an overly dry environment.
  • Being Comfortable
    Overly dry air can aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms and lead to dry noses, sore throats, and cracked, itchy skin.whole-house-humidifier-honeywell
  • Preserving Your Home
    Dry air can damage many things in a home, including wood floors, plaster, paint, furniture, artwork, electronics and musical instruments. Maintaining normal humidity levels protects your contents from the adverse effects of dry air over the long term.
  • Lowering Your Energy Bill
    Installing a whole house humidifier can help you feel warmer at lower temperatures. According the EPA, you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat.

Multiple Benefits from Whole House Humidifiers
Whole house humidifiers work with your HVAC system to ensure that every room of your home has the optimal moisture levels. Controlling humidity levels can reduce the incidence for potential illnesses, keep valuable items in your home from deteriorating, and even lower your monthly heating bill.

Improving Overall Air Quality
Air cleaners/air purifiers, carbon monoxide detectors, programmable thermostats and other products can improve your home’s overall air quality. Go to Improve Air Quality for more details.
