Healthy indoor air contains a certain amount of moisture – ideally about 55%. But during the winter, the air becomes much drier than in the summer months. This can make reaching that ideal moisture percentage in your home difficult—especially when your furnace is operating and blowing warm air through your home.
This type of dry indoor environment can cause a range of problems, including dry, irritated skin and increased allergic responses. Dry indoor air, if left unchecked, can also result in physical damage to your home and furniture.
Fortunately, you can solve the problem of dry indoor air with a simple solution that ensures healthy moisture levels throughout your home: a whole-house humidifier.
Wired to your heating and air conditioning unit, as well as your plumbing, a central humidifier adds water vapor to your home air via your ducts. You can then control humidity levels using your thermostat, just like the temperature.
