Do I Need a Whole-House Humidifier?

Are you noticing increased static electricity, uncomfortable dryness in the air, or respiratory discomfort when you switch on the heat? All of these air quality problems are due to air that is too dry. When you turn on your home’s heating system in the winter, the air inside your home naturally starts to dry out. Without adding moisture back into your home’s air, your family’s health and comfort can suffer.

Because of the impacts of dry air, you need more than just a heating and cooling system in your Northern Virginia home. While the right temperature is important, humidity levels also play a vital role in the comfort of your home. Installing a whole-house humidifier will add the necessary moisture into the air, improving your comfort and your home’s overall efficiency. These systems deliver moisture directly to the HVAC system through your home’s vents, ensuring steady and comfortable humidity throughout your home all winter long.

Benefits of a Whole-House Humidifier

You can add humidity to your home with a portable humidifier, but these units are small and can only add moisture to a small area of your home. They’re also cumbersome and take up quite a bit of space. A better option is a whole-house humidifier, which connects to your home’s HVAC system to deliver consistent moisture whenever it is needed, all throughout the heating season. With a whole-house humidifier, you will enjoy a number of benefits, such as:

  • Enhanced ability to lower the temperature on your furnace while maintaining comfort
  • Improved symptoms of allergies and asthma
  • Reduced static electricity
  • Improved protection for woodwork and furniture
  • Reduced the risk of respiratory illnesses
  • Improved comfort for dry skin and eyes
  • Increased preservation of artwork, wall paint, and wall paper
