The Best Humidifier for Your Home
You may not immediately think that your Plano, TX home needs a humidifier at all. After all, we’re pretty well known for our muggy summers. But with furnace or heat pump use in the winter, your indoor air can get pretty dried out. Dry air has a number of consequences, including:
- Dried out wood flooring and furnishings.
- Increased illnesses as low humidity dries out our sinuses and makes us more susceptible to germs.
- Dry skin.
- Static shock in the home.
The best humidifier to tackle these problems is a whole-house humidifier. Installed directly into your ductwork, it provides comprehensive humidification to your entire living space.
Consider Dehumidifier Installation
Too much humidity in the air makes us uncomfortable. This is because it doesn’t allow us to sweat, and sweating is the natural way for our bodies to cool off. So when indoor humidity is too high, it causes us to turn our AC thermostats down to try to achieve comfort—which is inefficient for our cooling systems.
In addition to making our air conditioners work too hard, too much humidity results in:
- Mold and mildew growth that can make you and your family ill.
- Wood rot that threatens the integrity of your home.
- Moisture exposure to electric components and appliances within your home.
To eliminate health concerns and to protect your biggest investment—your home—consider the installation of a whole-house dehumidifier.
