HVAC heating system add-ons improve indoor air quality.
Your HVAC heating system might not be adequate for maintaining healthy indoor air quality, because your home is probably too dry.
You might think that a dry house is a healthy house, right? After all, mold, mildew, and pests typically thrive in moist environments, which can lead to foul odors and structural damage.
However, a too-dry home is a big problem, too. Here are the top three reasons you should consider adding a humidifier to your HVAC heating system.
- You will feel better. Adding a humidifier to your HVAC heating system will reduce the virus population in your home, making you less susceptible to illness. Your skin will be less dry and cracked, and you will have fewer sore throats and nosebleeds.
- Your wood floors, furniture, trim, and molding, as well as paint and plaster, will be less likely to dry out and crack, potentially saving you a bundle on repairs.
- You could save big money on your heating bill. Moist air feels warmer than dry air, and the EPA states that you save up to 4% on heating bills for every degree you lower your thermostat setting. Adding a whole-home humidifier to your HVAC heating system will deliver just the right amount of moisture needed to make your home feel comfortable at lower thermostat settings.
