How to Get Rid of Dry Indoor Air

A “dry house” isn’t one where adult beverages are banned – at least not for purposes of this newsletter.  It is, however, a place where the air is so dry, it might be causing you any number of problems, including:

  • Frequent bloody noses
  • Dry skin
  • Dry throat
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Static electrical shock
  • A worsening of allergy and asthma problems

These symptoms are all caused by too little moisture in the air.  That’s a common occurrence while your furnace is working to keep you warm.

You know what else dry air can do?  It can shrink your wooden floors, doors, and furniture, potentially causing them to crack or warp. The same goes for musical instruments. Dry air also can cause electronic equipment to fail from the same static electricity that might be prompting one too many “ouch” moments.

The Perfect Cure for Dry Indoor Air

While there are numerous self-help remedies you can employ to moisturize your air, none are as effective as a whole-house humidifier – one that will provide just the right amount of relative humidity throughout your home working in tandem with your furnace.

Besides putting a stop to bloody noses, dry skin and hair, and all the rest, a whole-house humidifier will help decrease your home heating costs by about 4%.  That’s because, with added moisture in the air, you’ll feel perfectly comfortable at lower thermostat settings.  It’s the same principle that makes you feel warmer outdoors when humidity levels are high.

Plus, for your added convenience, we can integrate humidifier control with your programmable thermostat.
