Benefits of Installing a Whole-House Humidifier

sick from poor indoor air quality

Are you and your family always getting colds, no matter the season? Does someone in your family have respiratory problems or asthma? Do you or your children have regular nose bleeds? If you answered yes to any of the following, a whole house humidifier could be the solution to these problems!

A whole house humidifier is usually installed and connected to your central air conditioning and heating unit. It works by putting moisture into the air. This moisture not only increases comforts in the temperature and feel of your home, but it also has many health benefits.

In many homes with low humidity, it is easier to contract viruses and colds. Even seasonal and non-seasonal allergy symptoms are increased in home with low humidity. The moisture that the whole house humidifier puts into the air, decreases the chances of catching a cold or the flu. The humidifier will also soothe all types of allergies and decrease the chances of asthma attacks. Bloody noses are often caused by extremely dry air, so a whole house humidifier is a great solution for this issue as well.

With a whole house humidifier, you can say goodbye to dry, cracked itchy skin, a sore throat, itchy dry eyes and dry mouth!

Not only is dry air harmful to your health, it can also cause structural damage to your home. Extremely dry air can crack your beautiful hardwood floors, as well as any other woodwork in your home. Even your walls will crack due to low humidity! Static electricity increases in dry air and the charge from it can potentially damage your expensive electronic devices.

Although too much humidity in your home can be a bad thing, a whole house humidifier regulates and monitors the humidity in your home – making sure your home always has the proper amount of humidity.

There are various different types of humidifiers, to select the one that best suits your home, call Gillece! Our experienced technicians will help you choose the right whole house humidifier for your home today.
