How Can a Humidifier Help Your Air Conditioning Systems?
Humidifiers play an important role in balancing out the effects of heating and air conditioning systems. In our busy day-to-day lives, we sometimes take for granted the pieces of equipment that keep our family comfortable. Most days, you may not even notice how dry your home feels.
As it turns out, humidifiers are good at doing a lot of things you may not have considered before. Here is how the experts explain the benefits of humidifiers in relation to air conditioning systems:
Installing a humidifier will improve dry skin, parched eyes, chapped lips, frizzy hair, nosebleeds, headaches, and other ailments. Moist air is also less hospitable for airborne viruses that cause colds, the flu, and upper respiratory infections, so your family will be less likely to get sick this winter.
Increasing moisture in the air reduces the likelihood of paint or plaster chipping. It also helps wood floors, trim, and furniture retain its beauty. A humidifier can keep your house looking good and help prevent the need for costly repairs.
Humid air feels warmer than dry air. This is why a 100-degree day in Florida feels much different than one does in Arizona. Increasing your home’s wintertime moisture level could allow you to turn the thermostat down a few degrees, which can provide noticeable relief on your heating bills.
Air conditioning systems may be the furthest thing from your mind in December, but adding a humidifier to your HVAC equipment will enhance your family’s experience for years to come, throughout all four seasons. One of our professionals from Comfort Services would love the opportunity to assess your home and recommend just the right humidifier to improve your home’s indoor air.
