When people think about uncomfortable environments, it is likely that places with high humidity and heat pop into their minds. We don’t blame them since that heavy, hot, sticky air doesn’t exactly make for any feelings of comfort (unless you enjoy that type of climate of course).
That said, dry air can create just as big of a hindrance to your comfort. That’s right, too much humidity and too little of it can both mess with your ability to stay comfortable–just in opposite ways. Around here, as we head into cooler months, the air will get drier and the change will become a noticeably unpleasant one.
It is good to know then that we can at least help you balance out the humidity in your home.
Why Dry Air Is a Problem
With so much hoopla about the discomfort that high humidity causes, it can be surprising to some that too little humidity can be just as uncomfortable. The fact is though that if the air in your home is too dry, it can have some pretty undesirable effects. These can include:
- Increased respiratory issues
- Increased illnesses
- Skin that is dry to the point of cracking or splitting
- Wood furniture that is cracking
- The inability to keep warm
As you can see, having too little moisture in the air in your home can still cause a fair share of problems. This isn’t something to ignore. Thankfully, it is a problem that we have a solution for.
A Solution For Too Little Humidity
So how do you solve the issue of dry air in your home? You can put away the spritzer bottle because our solution is far more effective and much easier: humidifiers in Prescott Valley, AZ.
A humidifier, specifically a whole-house humidifier, is going to help balance out the humidity level in your home, combatting all the issues that dry air creates. This doesn’t mean it will make your home humid. Instead, it will adjust the level of airborne moisture in your home to the ideal level for optimal comfort (between 30% to 50% humidity).
We specifically encourage the installation of the whole-house humidifier for a reason: it can adjust the humidity throughout your home. This means, rather than having a portable humidifier that only adjusts the moisture level in one room, you can enjoy the perks of a system that adjusts the humidity for the entire household. Other benefits of these systems include:
- Better heating power from your heater
- Lower energy bills
- Improved indoor air quality
That’s right! With the help of a humidifier, you are going to feel warmer which means that you are able to reduce your demand on your heater. That saves you time, money, and trouble in the long run.
If you think a humidifier would be the ideal solution to your home comfort issues, make sure you consult with a professional. We can ensure that this really is the best option for you and we can perform an expert installation as well.
