The benefits of a humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
During the winter months when the weather is cooler and drier, it can also feel drier in your home. In addition to the dry outdoor weather, blasting the heat inside your home can dry out the air, causing more problems than you’d expect. When you’re feeling a bit dry inside, there are two great reasons to consider a humidifier in your heating and cooling system:
Air that is too dry is more prone to carry viruses that can make you sick. Studies have shown that too little humidity is as bad as or even worse than too much when it comes to getting colds and flu in the winter. Those viruses can thrive in dry air. Including a humidifier in your heating and cooling system can raise the humidity level in your home to help fight off those pesky winter bugs.
If you don’t have a humidifier in your heating and cooling system, it could be apparent in how you feel. Are your eyes itchy and watery? Do you have a sore throat or itchy irritated nose and sinuses? Is your skin dry and itchy? This could all be a result of air that is too dry. The humidity levels in your home can be brought up to optimum level to reduce these irritating symptoms by installing a humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
There are many reasons to raise the humidity level in your home, but the two biggest and best reasons are your health and your wellness. Don’t sacrifice your comfort and well-being with a heating and cooling system that doesn’t include a humidifier. Call today to find out more, and check out our current promotions on our website.
