When it comes to keeping your home comfortable, humidity is second to temperature in importance. However, the two operate on an inverse relationship. When the temperature rises, humidity drops. You’ve likely experienced this phenomenon during the winter when you have the heat on. If you want to keep the air in your home humid, your best option is to call Rebmann, which can install a whole house humidifier in New York. By installing it into your cooling and heating system, it’ll introduce water vapor into your home from the ductwork.
A whole house humidifier is installed near your furnace and is connected to your water supply. When it’s on, water constantly runs through it and evaporates into the air flowing through the ducts. In addition, when your furnace is running, part of the air it cycles goes into the humidifier. That air goes through the humidifier and joins up with the rest of your home’s airflow. As a result, your home’s average air humidity goes up.
Here are 5 ways a whole house humidifier in New York can make your life better:
Dry air can dry out your skin and nasal passages, which can cause irritation on your hands, elbows, and other parts of your body. A whole house humidifier helps keep you healthier and more comfortable. In addition, it can also help you sleep better at night. It’s much better to get a humidifier for your home than spend a fortune on skin lotion.
A similar benefit of humid air is that it can help you stay healthier. In particular, dry air can an increase of symptoms or attacks for those who have asthma as it dries out their respiratory system. In addition, viruses and bacteria have a hard time flourishing in the humid air.
Save on energy bills
Turning up the thermostat isn’t the only way you can make the house feel warmer. Air that can capture more moisture can maintain more heat. Because of this, humid air feels warmer at lower temperatures. Installing a humidifier can help your home feel warmer in the winter. The EPA reports that you can save 4% off your energy bill per degree you drop the thermostat.
Protect your furnishings
Dry air can wear down a lot of things you keep in your home. Wood can shrink, warp, and crack while paper becomes more brittle. Keeping the air in your home humid can help protect your belongings in the long run.
Less static electricity
Dry, cold air has a tendency to create more static electricity. A humidifier in your home can help make the air less dry and reduce the chances of being shocked.
