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