Controlling Home Humidity Levels is Vital to Your
Year-Round Indoor Comfort.
Too much humidity is a bad thing, right? After all, it creates and promotes an environment where bacteria, mold, various fungi, and dust mites not only grow, but flourish!
On the other hand, dry air causes its own fair share of problems. In fact, excessively dry indoor air can make you more vulnerable to harmful viruses and respiratory ailments.
So what’s the answer? A whole-house, combined humidification and de-humidification system that enables you to control and maintain the proper levels of relative humidity while enhancing the quality of your indoor air.
The Benefits of a Whole-House Humidifier/De-Humidifier
If your indoor air is feeling dry and musty at different times of the year, it might be time to invest in a new and combined whole-house humidification and de-humidification system. Installed directly into your current HVAC system, a home humidification system will help maintain just the right levels of relative humidity according to the seasons and fluctuating weather patterns. It all adds up to greater indoor comfort, less possibility of damage to your home, and lower utility bills.
Recommended Humidity Levels
The recommended average relative humidity level for a home is between 35% and 45%. That provides just the right amount of moisture, without the air becoming too wet (which could cause damage to your home).
Humidity levels can be easily checked with a hygrometer (a small and inexpensive tool that looks similar to a thermometer). In addition, with a new state-of-the-art humidifier/de-humidifier, the humidity level can easily be controlled and adjusted to your exact comfort level.
Maintaining the proper humidity levels in your home is definitely worth the effort. After all, since you’re spending so much time indoors, you might as well be spending that time in a healthy, more comfortable environment.
