Here are the top 4 reasons you should consider whole home humidifiers:

  1. Healthier Living.  In addition to causing annoying static electricity buildup, dry air can also lead to itchy skin, sore throats, and aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms.  Many viruses thrive in low humidity increasing the likelihood of catching colds, flu and upper respiratory ailments.  Not to mention mold growth, which can become a hazardous problem in non climate-controlled rooms and areas.
  2. More Comfortable.  There's no doubt that we simply feel more comfortable in a home with proper relative humidity between 35% and 55%.   In our Michigan climate, the longer cold-weather season can suck the moisture out of the air and leave us feeling dry.  Humidifiers fix that and make the air much more comfortable on the skin.
  3. Protect hardwood flooring & furniture.  Wood will tend to absorb the moisture in the air, and exposure to extreme changes in humidity can cause damage to your hardwood flooring and any wood furniture in the room.  An investment in whole home humidifiers is protection for these valuable assets in your home.
  4. Save Money On Energy Bills.  Relative humidity goes a long way towards maintaining comfortable temperatures in a home.  A properly humidified room feels warmer than a excessively dry room at the same temperature.  This means with a home humidification system, you're able to keep your thermostat turned down and save energy (and money).
