Comfort accessories, such as humidifiers, are great additions to your HVAC system. Not only does the added moisture in the air provide a more comfortable environment, but they can improve the way your HVAC system functions as well. Here are some of the benefits that come with installing a humidifier.
A whole-home humidifier can save you money on your heating bill. Air with higher levels of moisture will feel warmer. Dry air does not hold as much heat. Therefore, a thermostat set to 70 degrees will feel very different depending on the humidity levels. When your humidifier is working with your heating system, your unit will not have to work as hard to make your home feel warm.
Dry air can cause several health problems. An HVAC system may keep your home at a pleasant temperature, but it may also be sucking the moisture your body needs right out of the air. These common health problems often worsen with dry air:
Adding a humidifier to your HVAC system not only benefits you but will also benefit your house. Many areas of your home are as susceptible to dryness as you are. Wood floors, paneling, paint and plaster will last longer in a home with higher humidity. Dry air can also damage some personal items, such as electronics and artwork. Not only will your body feel better in a less dry environment, but your home will thrive as well.
