We have had a lot of rain this summer and the moisture has been wonderful! However, don’t forget that as we head into fall and winter, you will be running your furnace and the air in your home will certainly dry out!
Coloradoans know that the dry weather can be a challenge, especially for those with allergies & asthma. Many people have tried using room humidifiers to battle the dry air, but have found that they don’t work as well as they had hoped. Installing a whole-house humidifier is a great option for many homes, and offers many benefits besides just keeping the air in your home more humid and therefore more comfortable.
Here are a few:
- Installing a whole house humidifier will actually lower your utility bills, because the humid air holds the heat more effectively. This keeps your furnace from running as much, and therefore lowers your utility bills.
- A whole house humidifier will help keep your hardwood floors and furniture in better shape, as the dry air is extremely hard on wood.
- An overly dry environment can make people more susceptible to infections, so installing a whole house humidifier can help prevent your family from getting sick this winter.
- Unlike room humidifiers, whole house humidifiers only require a simple pad change once a year. There is also no standing water, meaning that there is no worry about bacteria growth.
