Get Your Humidity Levels in Check Now
Winter is right around the corner for us here in New Hampshire and with it will come the ongoing battle with dry air in your home, as the heating system takes on a full-time job. From cracked skin on your hands and feet and chronic nosebleeds to static-prone hair, you may think that this is just a natural side effect of living in New England during the winter months.
Last winter a homeowner in Hollis, NH called us with this complaint. He was looking for a heating system that wouldn’t dry out his home. Instead we pointed him in the direction, and ultimately installed, a whole house humidifier in his home.
Whole house humidifiers take the concept of the portable humidifier, that many homeowners have been moving from room to room during the winter months, and make this an easier solution for the whole house. The whole house humidifier is installed directly into your heating and cooling system. It them brings moisture in through your home’s ductwork. The humidity level is monitored and controlled by a humidistat.
Installing a whole house humidifier ensures that the humidity levels in your home are maintained consistently all year round. Controlling your humidity levels can have a positive effect on your family’s overall health. The dry hands and skin of winter will be reduced, sleep will improve and your throat and nasal passages will be less irritated.
As an added bonus, controlling your home’s humidity levels can also save you money on your heating bills. A higher humidity during the winter months actually makes you feel warmer, allowing you to turn the thermostat down a degree or two.
