For the majority of the year, the weather in my local section is especially cold.
We are not surprised by temperatures down to negative-twenty five degrees.
The winter time conditions require the heating system to operate for six to eight months straight. A whole-home humidifier is almost a necessity, then cold air doesn’t retain as much moisture as warmer air. The cold weather results in concerns with inadequate humidity. Chapped lips, frizzy hair plus static shock are signs of overly dry air. When the air is dry, it pulls moisture out of everything it touches, including hair, skin plus home furnishings. There is the potential for hardwood floors, doors, moldings plus furnishing to crack or split, then dried out nasal passages make family members more susceptible to cold plus flu. It takes longer to reuse from illness when there isn’t enough moisture in the air. Coughing, sneezing, headaches, difficulty sleeping plus sore throat are consequences of imcorrect humidity levels. Plus, the dry conditions aggravate symptoms of dust irritations, asthma, psoriasis plus eczema. It can be tempting to crank the control unit, but this just puts greater strain on the boiler plus makes matters worse. A whole-home humidifier introduces necessary moisture into the air as it passes through the heating system. The unit operates quietly, requires only annual upkeep plus greatly improves the comfort plus air quality of the living space. It allows for lower control equipment settings, reducing demands on the heating system plus resulting in lower monthly energy costs. I reuseed the investment into the humidifier through energy savings in under three years.
