Indoor humidity levels drop when your heating system runs more frequently to keep you warm in the winter. Low humidity inside your home means dry air, which is not only uncomfortable, but can cause other problems as well.
For example, air that’s too dry can make you more susceptible to colds and other illnesses. (Research has shown that certain bacteria and viruses grow better in dry environments.)
Dry air is also bad for your home, especially if you have wooden floors or a lot of wood trim.
We have a solution for you—installing a whole-house humidifier, which will create a healthier and more comfortable environment in your home. As a bonus, when the humidity level goes up, you’ll feel warmer at a lower thermostat setting, and that means you’ll save money on your heating bill.
Solving humidity problems is just one of the ways we can make you more comfortable ion your home. For complete comfort (and lower energy bills), consider a home energy audit.
