Maintaining Sufficient Humidity throughout the Fall and Winter

We may not all be switching over to our heating systems just yet, but there is no denying that the hottest weather of the year is now behind us. As the winter season approaches and fall is getting underway, you may find that the air in your home is a bit drier than you’d like. As you begin running your home heating system to keep yourself and your family warm and cozy throughout the day, you may find the issue is only aggravated. If you are concerned about low humidity levels in your home, then you should seriously consider the use of a whole-house humidifier in Hanford, CA. Contact a member of the Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning team with any questions that you may have surrounding the humidification of your home.

Signs of Low Humidity

Before you can really determine if you’d benefit from the use of a whole-house humidifier, you must first learn to recognize the signs that the air in your home is too dry to begin with. There are many that you may notice, if you simply know what you are looking for. Low humidity can, after all, affect your body, your health and your property itself.

First of all, pay attention to your skin. If you hands are very dry and cracked, or your body is just itchy in general, then you may be surrounded by air lacking in humidity. It is also possible that your sinuses may dry out, leaving you prone to illness, as well as bloody noses. Sore throats are also common.

As far as your property goes, keep an eye out for cracked or splitting wooden fixtures, floorboards, or furniture. Chipping paint or cracked wallpaper may also indicate that your home lacks sufficient humidity, as may an increase in annoying static shocks. Whatever it is that tips you off to issues of low humidity in your home, a whole-house humidifier is certainly the most convenient and effective way with which to resolve the problem.
