Reasons You Need a Humidifier


Cold weather is on the way, but you can stay warm and comfortable with a whole-home humidifier. While most people are familiar with portable room humidifiers, we offer a number of systems that install directly into your heating system. A whole-home humidifier can help improve health, increase home comfort and can even help with energy efficiency.

Cold and flu season is tough on everyone and a dry home can make things worse. A number of viruses thrive in environments that lack humidity, making it more likely that you’ll get sick. Adding a whole-home humidifier to your home can make a significant difference in preventing the spread of viruses and germs.

Increasing humidity in the home during the cooler months can also help prevent other issues caused by dry air. Individuals prone to sore throats, dry noses and cracked skin in the winter often see a significant improvement with the addition of a humidifier.

A whole home-humidifier will also make your home feel warmer without having to raise the temperature on your thermostat, allowing you to save money on heating costs. Every degree you turn your thermostat down during the winter makes a difference on your energy bills, so having the added warmth of a humidifier means you won’t have to crank the heat and consume more energy.

Portable humidifiers can only help a small area of the home and can be frustrating to maintain. Breathe easy this winter by adding a whole-home humidifier to a new or current heating system.
