How Installing a Whole House Humidifier in Your Buffalo Home Can Change Your Life

No More Worrying About the Dry Winter Air

It’s one of the harsh truths of winter—as the days grow colder, the air gets drier. Your parched skin cracks and peels, your nose itches and twitches and the 7-11 is running 2-for-1 deals on chap-stick. Instead of enduring another winter like that, why not invest in a whole house humidifier?

Unlike the small, portable humidifiers most of us are familiar with, whole house models can be installed directly into your heating system, introducing humidity and moisture in the form of water vapor into your home through your heating ducts. Then you can use a thermostat to easily monitor and adjust, not only your indoor temperature, but the humidity levels, as well.

Outfitting your home with a whole house humidifier comes with abundant benefits and advantages:

  1. Health: It’s a fact that viruses (especially the FLU!) thrive in low-humidity conditions. That means that without an adequate level of moisture and humidity in your home, you are increasing your chances of falling ill to viruses like the flu, colds, and other respiratory ailments. Additionally, extremely dry environments make people more vulnerable to infections that their immune systems might otherwise have had no trouble with. Injecting some humidity into your home’s indoor air home can go a long way to protecting you and your family from such health issues.
  2. Comfort: Overly dry, stale air can aggravate respiratory illnesses like asthma and allergies and also lead to dry noses, sore throats, and cracked, uncomfortable skin.
  3. Preservation: Dry, moisture-free air can cause severe damage to many household items, such as wood floors, plaster, paint, furniture, artwork, electronics and musical instruments. Supplying your house evenly with the proper amount of humidity can protect your home and contents from the adverse effects of dry air.
  4. Energy Efficiency: Although turning up the thermostat will raise the temperature in your home, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to feel any warmer. That’s where whole house humidifiers come in. Installing a whole house humidifier can actually help your home feel warmer at lower temperatures. According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat.
