Gone are the days of short-sleeved shirts and the possibility of sweating when outside. Here comes the cold, dry air, the sweaters, and the itchy skin to accompany it all. If you struggle each year with dry skin, itchy eyes, nose and throat, it may be time to consider the installation of a whole house humidifier for your home in Bolingbrook, IL.
It Goes Beyond Discomfort
You may be thinking that some extra hand lotion will do the trick, but hand lotion won’t help your immune system nor will it stop wood products in your home from drying out, splintering and cracking. When your home is subjected winter after winter to excessively dry conditions, these things can happen. So why not add needed moisture to the air automatically with a humidifier?
Individual humidifiers simply can’t do the job that a whole home humidifier can, and there are a few reasons for this. First, a whole home humidifier is added to your heating system and becomes part of the system; individual room humidifiers only address the air that immediately surrounds them. Second, a whole home humidifier adds moisture to the air just as it leaves your heating system, so your entire home is treated to moisturized air evenly and completely. You set the exact level of humidity you want in your home simply by setting the humidistat on your home’s thermostat – the humidifier does the rest. Lastly, a whole home humidifier can even help you reduce the amount of heating you need in your home. This is because humidity holds heat. If your indoor air can hold more heat, it will feel warmer and more comfortable, enabling you to turn the thermostat down a few degrees.
