Reasons to Install a Humidifier

Monday, November 17th, 2014

The quality of the air in your home can have a tremendous effect on your health, your skin, and even your mood. Generally, experts recommend a certain level of moisture in the air in order to maintain the most ideal conditions possible. Too much humidity can cause damage to the structure of your home, but too little moisture in the air can be just as hazardous. In many cases, an indoor air quality expert recommends a whole-home humidifier for homes that are too dry for comfort.

A humidifier can be a standalone unit, or experts can install a whole-house humidifier which works with your HVAC system to maintain healthy levels anywhere you are. Here at Atlantic Refrigeration, we want to let you know of a few good reasons to install a whole-home dehumidifier as soon as possible if you’re experiencing any of the problems associated with dry air.

  • Protect the Walls of Your Home: Dry air can do serious damage to the walls, floors, and ceilings of your home. Chipped paint, peeling furniture, cracked artwork and ruined musical instruments are also possibilities. A humidifier adds enough moisture to the air to preserve your home and protect it from any potentially harmful effects.
  • Prevent Illness: Dryness can also make you feel ill as your sinuses cannot drain properly without any moisture present. Humidity can help you to heal faster, and some humidifiers even contain purifiers to clear up the air even further. Humidity also can reduce nosebleeds and helps to soothe dry, cracked skin.
  • Promote Energy Efficiency: When the air feels dry, you can turn up the heat all you want, but your skin may still feel cooler than you’d like. You need some humidity in the air to keep you feeling warmer, no matter what the actual temperature is in the house. A humidifier can help you to turn the thermostat lower as you’ll already feel all the heating you need on your skin.
