5 Benefits of a Whole House Humidifier in New York

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.


Health benefits

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.

Do I Need a Whole House Humidifier? In the Summer?

Do I Need a Whole House Humidifier?  In the Summer?

It continues to be a hot summer on Long Island.  If you notice that your wooden furniture is feeling sticky or that the wallpaper is peeling, it’s because there is too much moisture in the air.

This can be regulated by a whole house humidifier.  Our whole house systems function as both humidifiers and dehumidifiers keeping the moisture in the air of your home or business in perfect balance.

The professionals at Rebmann hope you’re all set with a central air solution (if not, check here for some advice and rebate information), but did you know that a whole house humidifier may be easily connected to your heating and cooling system?

Benefits of a Whole House Humidifier

– Better for Your Health & Better for Your Furniture: Our humidifier systems evenly distribute moisture throughout your home or business maintaining a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. Too much moisture makes especially wooden furniture sticky, and not enough moisture may lead to cracked wood.

– Ease Seasonal Allergy Symptoms: Whole house humidifiers ease the breathability of a given space.  They are ideal for people suffering from seasonal allergies or asthma.  Whole house humidifiers are must-haves for promoting optimal health.

– Easy Install: Whole house humidifiers may be attached to your existing heating and cooling system.  Gone are the days of dragging clunky systems from room to room.

Are You Suffering From Seasonal Allergies on Long Island?

Are You Suffering From Seasonal Allergies on Long Island?

We have solutions!

We know how frustrating seasonal allergies can be this time of year, and it always seems like each year is worse than the one before.  We can’t cure you of allergy symptoms, but we can help improve your surrounding environment in ways that will make substantial differences.  You can rest easy knowing there are measures that may be taken to improve your situation.

Rebmann Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning has been serving Long Island’s Nassau and Suffolk counties for nearly a century.  We can help you prevent this vicious allergen cycle by installing one of two (or both!) of the following solutions: a whole house humidifier and indoor air cleaner.

1.     Whole House Humidifiers

Unlike portable humidifiers that need be carried about and lugged around only to maybe have a mild impact on one or two rooms, whole house humidifiers ensure just the right amount of moisture evenly permeates throughout your entire home or business.  Appropriate moisture levels help to:

– Ease allergy symptoms

– Ease symptoms caused by asthma

2.     Indoor Air Cleaners

Indoor air cleaners provide the ultimate in indoor health and wellbeing for you and your family.  We install both standard and electronic indoor air cleaners.  Both are effective, but electronic cleaners are the superior choice.  Indoor air cleaners help ease your allergy symptoms by removing the following:

– mildew, mold, airborne viruses

– dust and dirt

– animal dander

Seasonal allergies on Long Island need not be a necessary evil.  There are options and actions you can take to help alleviate symptoms, and the professionals at Rebmann are happy to assist.
