During the winter, indoor air is dry when humidity levels are low, and static builds up that makes upper respiratory conditions worse. Contact one of the air quality experts at Senica Air Conditioning, Inc. Inc. located in Spring Hill, FL to find out the benefits of installing a whole-house humidifier. Although room units are much cheaper, the benefits of maintaining consistent humidity levels throughout your home far outweigh the poor performance of room units.
Whole-House Humidifier Benefits
One of the biggest benefits with a whole-house humidifier is never worrying about the humidity level once it is set. It remains the same until you change the setting. The hygrometer measures humidity and automatically adjusts it so excess moisture does not cause mold, mildew, and other bacteria. Room humidifiers do not have regulators and cannot control humidity levels. Room units run best using distilled water, which is an extra expense. Mold and other bacteria grow in water tanks and other parts of these small units, which require frequent cleaning. In contrast, whole-house humidifiers need once or twice-a-year cleaning to remove mineral scale deposits left by evaporated water. When humidity levels are too low, the air feels cooler, and you will have to set your thermostat to a higher temperature to feel comfortable. With the proper amount of humidity, you can lower the temperature by a few degrees and save on monthly utility bills. If you choose a model that controls humidity all year round, you reduce your annual energy costs. Other benefits include healthier air and a reduction of airborne viruses. Whether you want a whole-house humidifier for your furnace or one for year round comfort, Senica Air Conditioning, Inc. Inc. of Spring Hill, FL has the right model. We know you will appreciate the benefits and feel the differences with proper humidity levels.
