No one wants to live in a home choked with dry and dusty air, whether it’s winter or summer. It makes you feel terrible and your home feel unwelcome and tiring. Likely the biggest reason for this is low humidity levels in your home, which is why you should get a humidifier right away. The ideal humidity level for your home is somewhere between 45-50%, which can be hard to achieve during the winter, since cold air holds less moisture and heating appliances can sap at what moisture is present.
Benefits of a Humidifier
The benefits of having a humidifier in your home are numerous. They can combat cracked skin, respiratory problems, dry sinuses, and respiratory irritation. You’ll also find yourself sleeping better. They can even protect your furniture – any real wood you have in your home can get damaged and cracked in dry air, so keeping your air humid preserves them. Humidifiers also help reduce the spread of sickness and alleviate the symptoms of the common cold and the flu. You can even reduce your energy bill in the winter with a humidifier, as keeping your home at the ideal humidity levels can actually make the air feel warmer, meaning you don’t have to crank up the heat!
In Your Home
Dry and dusty air circulates throughout your entire house, and the best way to deal with this is through a whole-home humidifier. We can attach these to nearly any furnace model, and they can source their water directly from your water tank. To guarantee that your home can hit that ideal humidity level without unnecessary fussing on your part, our humidifiers can also be configured with your thermostat to maintain humidity levels automatically.
Breathing the air in your own home shouldn’t be a hassle or a chore, and you deserve the best health benefits. Contact Nor-Can Heating and Air today to ask about our selection of Carrier humidifiers, and let us help you decide the best one for your home.
