Why Add Humidity to the Air In My Home?

You’ve probably heard cautionary tales about having too much humidity in your home. What you may not understand, given these warnings, is precisely why one would choose to add more humidity to the air throughout his or her home. Well, the answer is quite simple: Having too little humidity in the air in your home is just as detrimental to the quality of that air, as well as to your comfort and your property, as having too much humidity is. This is why many homeowners  utilize whole-house humidifiers in Fresno, CA. If you wish to schedule professional humidifier services, do so with the experts here at Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning.

Why Use a Whole-House Humidifier?

Many people notice that the air in their homes is too dry. A common solution to this problem is to utilize a portable humidifier, often in the bedroom. However, it should be noted that this is really of little benefit in homes where very dry air is a persistent problem. Not only is a whole-house humidifier far more effective than standalone models, but these humidifiers are also far more convenient. You won’t have to worry about filling a whole-house humidifier with water, as a supply line does that for you. Plus, the entirety of your home will be treated, and you can set your humidistat to ensure that you are never over-saturating the air. These are conveniences that portable humidifiers simply cannot match.

Signs That You Need More Humidity

There are many warning signs which can indicate the need for adding humidity to the air in one’s home. You may notice, for instance, that static shocks are very common – and annoying – issues. The wallpaper in your home may crack and peel, while paint chips away. Wooden fixtures may also crack and split, while your skin follows suit. You may even suffer frequent nosebleeds if the humidity in your air is too low. Contact us to avoid and/or resolve any such problems.
