Humidification

Why do I need a Working Humidifier?

Save your family and your home from the damaging effects of over-dry air. Dry nose and cracked, itchy skin. Aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms. Painful static shocks. Chipping paint and plaster. Warped or damaged wood floors and furniture, trim and molding. Sound familiar? Why go through another season with these problems when there is a solution. You may need a whole-home humidifier.

Turning your temperature up in the wintertime will keep you warm but won't increase your home's humidity. Daily activities like showering, cooking, and doing laundry won't produce enough moisture to keep your home's air from being too dry. According to medical experts, many viruses thrive in low humidity and can increase the likelihood of getting colds, flu and upper respiratory ailments. The American Society of Otolaryngology reports that it is important to prevent an overly dry environment because it makes people more susceptible to infection.

A whole-home humidifier will deliver the perfect amount of moisture to your air making you feel more comfortable at lower thermostat settings. In fact, the EPA states that you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat! Increase your family's level of comfort and protect your valuable furnishings by adding just the right amount of moisture with a whole-house humidifier.

“If too dry an environment is your problem, consider a humidifier. Clues like awakening with a sore throat, dryness in your nose, or even a nose bleed are signs of too little humidity."

How It Works

A whole-house humidifier is installed directly to your central heating and cooling system. Humidity is introduced into your home's air in the form of water vapor, which prevents minerals from entering the air in your home and potentially into your lungs. Water is supplied to the distribution tray, allowing it to flow evenly across the Aprilaire Water Panel®. The resulting humidified air is then distributed via your heating and cooling system ductwork throughout your home.

Whole-Home Humidification vs. Portable

Too much humidity can be as much of a problem as too little humidity. Unlike portable units the a whole-home humidifier continually monitors relative humidity levels in your home, then works to deliver the right amount of moisture, never too much or too little to your entire house. Our whole-house humidifiers don't require daily cleaning and disinfecting that many portable units require and you never need to worry about the risk of microbial organism growth due to standing water.

“Humidifiers are commonly used in homes to relieve the physical discomforts of dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. The moisture they add to dry air also helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, peeling wallpaper, and cracks in paint and furniture."
“Seasonal and even daily changes in humidity cause wood parts to swell and shrink, affecting tuning stability and touch. Extreme swings in humidity can eventually cause wood to crack and glue joints to fail... Maintaining the correct environment will preserve your piano investment for a lifetime of enjoyment.”
We can turn your central heating and cooling system into a whole-house humidifying system or upgrade your old humidification system. See our coupon special at the Money Saving Coupon Tab! We have humidifiers for boiler systems also.
