To achieve maximum comfort in the winter, your home should be equipped with a whole house humidifier. Humidification is one of the most important components of indoor comfort, yet it is commonly overlooked. In the winter, the average home’s relative humidity is an extremely low 15%. Whole house humidifiers can deliver up to 50% more humidity in your home.
A whole house humidifier can keep your family comfortable and protect your home from drying out. It can help keep your family comfortable in the winter by reducing parched air that causes a dry nose and throat and itchy skin. A humidifier can also prevent furniture, woodwork and hardwood floors from drying out and cracking. Finally, it can help increase energy efficiency because humidified air feels warmer than dry air, allowing you to turn down the temperature setting on your home’s heating and air conditioning system.
