Why Heating and Air Conditioning Could Be Drying Out Your Life

Is your heating and air conditioning turning your home into a desert?

Drying effects of Heating and Cooling

Have you ever noticed when your heating and air conditioning systems are running, the air feels drier inside your home? That's because your HVAC equipment removes some of the moisture from the air when running. This can be a nice side effect of air conditioning because dry air feels cooler than moist air. But in the winter, your indoor air is already naturally dry and your furnace makes it worse.

Many people notice an increase in chapped lips, static electricity, and nosebleeds due to dry winter air. Wonder if there's anything you can do to stop heating and air conditioning systems from drying out your life?

Installing a whole-home humidifier alongside your existing HVAC equipment will deliver a precise amount of moisture that will make your home feel more comfortable. Adding some humidity to your home will alleviate many conditions associated with dry air. It will also help prevent cracking wood floors or furniture that can dry out over time.

Plus, just like dry air feels cooler, moist air feels warmer. That means that with a humidifier, you may be able to lower your thermostat setting a couple degrees and save some money on your winter heating bills!

Don't let your heating and air conditioning systems suck all the moisture out of your home. Comfort Services installs humidifiers for homes all over Columbia, South Carolina. Our expert technicians can quickly assess your home and recommend just the right humidifier for your family's needs.

For enhanced comfort and improved health during the cold, dry winter months, a humidifier is the way to go. Call Comfort Services for more information about heating and air conditioning solutions at 803.772.4490.
