Every Home Can Benefit From a Humidifier
Is low humidity a problem in your home? It is an issue for many homeowners, and there are a number of great reasons for every home to have a whole-house humidifier or room-based humidifiers installed.
Lower Energy Costs
Custom Comfort Air in Houston has many clients throughout the region who want to lower their energy costs. We often recommend humidifiers as a tool that many people overlook. Relative humidity makes a difference in how you perceive temperature. With a proper humidity level, you can lower the thermostat at least several degrees and perhaps even more. That can make a significant difference over a season.
Your home will feel warmer at lower temperatures. A humidifier makes it easier to get to the desired temperature. The temperature throughout the home will feel more evenly distributed. In addition, humidification makes it easier to breathe and helps avoid dry skin and other winter-related inconveniences.
It is not just about comfort; it is also about your health. A humidifier can make a big difference for people who suffer from allergies, asthma or other breathing issues. Doctors often recommend humidifiers for this very reason. Additionally, germs don’t flourish as well in the moist air, which means that humidification helps curb the flu and other viruses that thrive in winter.
Protecting Wood Floors and Furniture
Beyond heavy foot traffic, dry air is the leading cause of wear and tear for hardwood floors. Dry air also does a number on wood furniture. Having a humidifier enables you to maintain consistent humidity throughout the year. Even installing a room humidifier in areas where you have a lot of wood can substantially extend its life span.
No More Static Shock
Another benefit will be no more static shock when you touch a doorknob or walk on the carpet. At Custom Comfort Air, we’d be happy to help you explore your humidifier options.
