Benefits of Whole Home Humidifiers

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Making your home as comfortable as possible is the goal of most homeowners. From choosing interiors to selecting appliances, and heating and cooling our homes, comfort and an easier lifestyle are usually top-of-mind. As we reach the dead of winter in Edmonton, moving between the frigid outdoors, heated vehicles, and heated homes leaves many of us with uncomfortable, dry and itchy skin. Fortunately, whole home humidifiers can help restore the comfort in your home and provide relief from the dry air we are exposed to all winter long.

Advantages of Whole Home Humidifiers

If you are in Edmonton and want to make the air in your home more comfortable, consider installing a whole home humidifier. Here are just a few of the benefits it can offer you and your family:

  • Health – Viruses do well in dry environments, especially during flu season. Having dry, recycled air filter through your home all winter long can increase your risk of catching a cold, getting the flu, or exasperating other respiratory illnesses. Using a humidifier can help improve the air quality in your Edmonton home and reduce your risk of getting sick this winter. 
  • Comfort – Rough and dry skin, brittle hair, chapped lips, sore throats, and runny noses that result from breathing in over-dry air for months can make your entire family and any company feel uncomfortable. Put down the moisturizer and stop treating the symptoms! Instead, deal with the source of the issue by installing a whole home humidifier.
  • Home Maintenance – Dry air not only takes a toll on our skin and respiratory systems, but also on the other furnishings and finishes in the home. Hardwood flooring, paint, furniture, artwork, instruments and electronics may be susceptible to damage if they are stored in an environment with over-dry air for an extended period of time. If your skin is responding to the air quality in your home, your possessions will be as well.
  • Energy Efficiency – Turning up the heat won’t necessarily increase the comfort or warmth you feel in the home. Installing a humidifier can make changes in temperature more noticeable, allowing you to lower your thermostat while increasing your comfort, energy-efficiency and savings on your monthly heating bill.
