How Humidifiers in Residential HVAC Systems Can Save Furniture (and So Much More!)

Many reasons to humidify your residential HVAC system.

Reasons for indoor humidity control

There are several big benefits to adding a humidifier to your residential HVAC system. According to medical experts, many viruses thrive in low humidity environments. This is why the likelihood of catching colds, flu, and upper respiratory ailments increases for many people during the dry winter months.

Lack of moisture can also cause damage to your home by causing paint and plaster to chip or crack, and by drying out wood floors, furniture, trim, and crown molding.

By increasing the temperature on your furnace, you are keeping warm but not increasing your home’s humidity. Simple day-to-day activities such as bathing, cooking, and doing laundry produce moisture, but not nearly enough to keep your home’s air from being too dry.

Adding a whole-home humidifier to your residential HVAC system will deliver just the right amount of moisture needed to make your entire home feel comfortably warm at lower thermostat settings. The EPA says that you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat setting.

The wood in your home also suffers in dry conditions. A whole-home humidifier added to your residential HVAC system will keep your floors, furniture, and trim looking beautiful. Wouldn’t it be a shame for your antique rocking chair or your wood floors to be ruined simply because your home is dry?
