At Addison Smith Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing, we take care of all of your home comfort needs. And being comfortable in your Douglasville home involves more than just the right temperature. Humidity plays a role too. We can replace or install whole house humidifiers to keep your family comfortable year round.
Why Your Douglasville Home Needs a Humidifier
Lack of humidity in your home can cause a range of problems. Some of them, you may not even know are caused by low humidity. Be on the lookout for these problems:
- Itchy skin
- Cracked/chapped lips
- Bloody noses
- Coughs & colds
- Cracking in wood furniture and moldings
- Static shock
The ideal level of indoor humidity is between 30% and 50%. Wintertime is the most common time to have a lack of humidity in your home. Our furnaces run constantly to keep us warm and this sucks the humidity out of the air. Because it’s cold outside, we don’t open any windows or doors, so there is no way for humid air to reenter our homes. So how do you increase the humidity level in your Douglasville home? Have a new humidifier installed by Addison Smith.
Advantages of Whole-House Humidifiers
If you want to increase the humidity in your home, the easiest way is by adding a whole-house humidifier. You can try to add moisture to your Douglasville home with room size portable humidifiers, but they just won’t do the job you need them to do. Humidity is limited to the room the humidifier is in. Even if you move them from room to room, it’s unlikely they will make a noticeable difference. You probably want one in every bedroom so you’d have to invest in several, not to mention the maintenance of adding water to each unit. It just isn’t practical. A whole-house humidifier will add moisture to every room and you won’t even have to think about it. It attaches directly to your furnace and has its own constant supply of water – no checking and refilling. Plus, whole-house humidifiers are designed to monitor the relative humidity of your home and deliver the perfect amount of moisture. You’ll be comfortable all season long.
Save Money and Energy with Humidifier Installation
When you add moisture to your home, the air actually feels warmer than dry air. Due to the process of evaporation, when moisture on your skin evaporates, it makes you feel cold. When the air in your Douglasville home is dry, it sucks moisture from your skin making you feel cold. When the air in your home is full of moisture, it doesn’t evaporate off of your skin. What this means from an energy savings standpoint is that you can actually add moisture to your home and lower the temperature of your thermostat by a degree or two without feeling any colder. Not only will this conserve energy, but it will lower your energy costs. Who couldn’t use a lower energy bill?
