Avoiding Dryness in Your Home During Cold Winter Months
Cold weather might be part of the festive season, but it can also wreak havoc on your health if you’re not careful. Another common problem in the winter months includes dryness. When you turn up the heat in your house, it’s hard to avoid the dry skin, chapped lips, static electricity, and even asthma, eczema, and nosebleeds that it can cause.
Fortunately, modern HVAC systems are becoming more and more sophisticated when it comes to maintaining a good level of humidity while also offering a comfortable level of heat.
You may want to consider installing a whole house humidifier to your furnace, to avoid the harmful effects of too little humidity during the cold season.
What Types of Whole House Humidifiers are Best?
The two most effective types of whole house humidifiers include:
Flow-Through Systems: Thesehumidifiers use evaporative technology to conserve water while delivering moisture throughout your house. As water drips through a water panel, your HVAC blows air through the panel, essentially “flowing” the resulting moisture through your home. These flow-through humidifier systems avoid mold issues and are economically efficient; the newer systems allow for digital control, which in turn enable delivery of accurate humidity levels and alert you when you need to replace the water panel.
Steam Humidifier Systems: Theseare probably the most technologically advanced whole-house humidifiers on the market. Utilizing steam technology to effectively dispense steam humidity throughout your house, these humidifiers are completely automatic – which makes your job a lot easier, because you don’t have to worry about controlling them manually. You can control them if you want to – they have manual control capabilities as well. With this you avoid the issue of duct condensation, because of the efficiency of the steam dispersion.
Is your home too wet or too dry? It doesn’t have to be either. Too much humidity can be a recipe for indoor air pollutants, but so can conditions with too little humidity. Dry winter air, for example, can extend the life of viral influenza particles. By installing an intelligent whole house-humidifier, you’ll relieve the symptoms and effects of imbalanced humidity while helping your home feel comfortably cozy.

The ideal humidity level in your home is between 30-50%. In extra dry or winter weather, it’s important to regulate the humidity level of your home with a humidifier to keep your family healthy and comfortable. The ideal humidity level can also help you avoid expensive home repairs. Proper moisture helps prevent wood from cracking, paint from chipping, and static cling on your home’s textiles and fabrics. You’ll also save energy. Moist air feels warmer and holds heat better than dry air, so you’ll feel just as comfortable when your thermostat is set to a lower temperature.
The benefits are clear. Humidifiers help reduce:
- Dust mites
- Dry respiratory pathways
- Cracked skin
- Cold and flu risk
- Asthma symptoms
- Energy costs
- House damage
Enjoy the benefits of improved indoor air quality, lower energy costs, and less property damage caused by dry air when your home’s humidity level is just right. Most whole-house humidifiers even have accompanying thermostats that offer easy, programmable solutions for greater humidity control throughout the day. Service Specialties is ready to explain your options and provide you with proper humidifier installation.
