A humidifier can keep the air inside your Chapel Hill, North Carolina, home from becoming too dry in winter. Moisture levels are usually lower when it’s cold outside, and your heater could reduce them even more. Many humidifiers use hygrometers to monitor humidity and add moisture to your house’s air automatically when needed. You can have a whole-home unit installed in your ductwork by a professional. A humidifier can lower your utility bills, make your home healthier, and prevent damage from dry air.
Air with more moisture feels warmer, so you won’t have to use your heater as much if you also have a humidifier. You and your family can stay comfortable with your thermostat at a lower setting. That way, your utility bills will be lower, and your HVAC system will receive less wear. A whole-home humidifier will eventually pay for itself through utility savings, and it can increase the value of your home.
A Healthier Home
Dry air can cause chapped lips, dry skin, sore throats, eye irritation, nosebleeds, and other health problems. It also lets viruses and bacteria spread easily throughout your home. A humidifier can prevent these issues and help you recover from colds faster. It can even keep you and your family members from snoring.
A humidifier can prevent cracks in wood furniture and floors, gaps underneath wood doors, and wobbly wood chairs. It can also keep paint from peeling and help the caulk in your bathroom work properly. Your home will stay in good condition longer, and you can avoid replacing furniture or having to make expensive, inconvenient repairs.
