With central heating, people are confined indoors with unnaturally dry air for many months each year. Humidifiers help to keep comfortable levels of moisture in the air, which is essential for your respiratory health.
Whole-house humidifiers work like old-fashioned room humidifiers: They put moisture into the air, making harsh, dry air easier to breathe. A major difference is that they improve the air in every room of your home—no more carrying a humidifier from room to room in the winter.
Another major benefit of adding a whole home humidifier to your HVAC system is that increasing the moisture in your air during colder months also prevents hardwood flooring, wood furniture, and fine art from being damaged by dry air. When the air becomes too dry in a space it starts to pull moisture from its surroundings, leaving gaps in hardwood floors and causing art and furniture to crack or flake.
Humidity during the right time of year is the answer to a lot of people’s woes when it comes to their personal belongings and their personal health.
