Why Does the Air in My Home Get So Dry in the Winter?

Dry Air Impacts Healthfamily in home 
When your heating system is running full tilt during the winter months, it can leave the air in your home dry and uncomfortable.  This can lead to a number of health related problems including respiratory irritation, uncomfortably dry nasal passages, nosebleeds, and chapped and itchy skin.  It can also exacerbate conditions such as allergies and asthma.

Low Humidity Affects Your Home and Possessions
Low humidity can also take its toll on hardwood floors, furniture, antique furniture and other woodwork that can dry out and split and crack. Wooden musical instruments such as pianos, violins and guitars can also be affected.


Whole House Humidifier

Whole House Humidifiers Are a Great Investment
Installing a whole house humidifier will make your home more comfortable, help lower your energy bill, and extend the product life of wood furniture, floors and possessions by providing proper humidity levels.

Benefits of Whole House Humidifiers
•    Saves money on energy bills – humidity in the air makes a home feel warmer at lower temperatures so you can turn your thermostat down a few degrees
•    Health benefits – helps dry skin and sinuses
•    Protects home furnishings, flooring, and antiques – dry wood cracks and ages
•    Reduces static in the air
•    Easy to maintain

Little Maintenance Required
The whole-house system’s greatest advantage is that it requires very little maintenance and keeps your entire home at a set humidity with just a one-time setup.

A whole house humidifier connects to your home’s HVAC system and spreads water vapor through your heating ducts to increase the humidity throughout your home.  Humidity levels can be controlled through your humidistat so you can always be sure that your home has just the right amount of moisture it needs.
