A humidifier can be one of the most important elements of your home’s HVAC system. Your humidifier works to keep your air quality in good condition. Health problems can occur when your home’s humidity is not kept at the right level. By installing a humidifier it will also help to conserve energy in your home. Your humidifier can affect several elements of your HVAC system:
In the summer months if your home is too humid it will be impossible for it to cool off. This will drive your A/C unit to try harder to cool the home and drive up energy costs. This goes for winter months as well if your humidity is too low. Also, if humidity is low in the home wallpaper will peel more easily and hardwood floors will separate at the seams. By installing and properly setting your humidifier you will save money by running a more efficient HVAC system and not having to replace aesthetic features in the home.
Besides the savings from humidifiers, they present a great deal of health benefits. Not enough humidity will dry out your family’s skin and sinuses, which increases cold and cough occurrences. Too much humidity can expedite the growth of mold, mildew, and other organically grown bacteria in your home.
