Installing an Aprilaire Humidifier for More Comfort
As the best-rated Minnesota heating contractor, our customers often ask what to do about the dry indoor air during the winter heating season. Low humidity is caused by furnace heat, which dries the air in your home, sending moisture up the vent to the outdoors. During the winter months, your home’s relative humidity may drop to 6%, similar to the dryness in a desert. Indoor dry air can cause many health problems and may even cause damage to your home, furniture and electronics. Replacing that lost moisure by installing an automatic whole-house humidifier keeps your home’s humidity at more normal levels. It works with your furnace and central air duct system, and whenever your furnace is on, the perfect amount of moisture is delivered to every part of your house. That makes your home more comfortable and eliminates problems caused by low humidity, like these:
Indoor dry air is often first noticed by Twin Cities metro area homeowners when they experience dry, itchy skin during the winter months.
When the air is so dry in your home, just walking across the carpet can produce uncomfortable shocks from static electricity when you touch grounded objects or even another person or pet. Static electricity can damage electronic equipment, like computers. Humidifying the air to normal levels helps eliminate static electricity sparks.
Dry warm air triggers a number of respiratory problems for many people. Dry coughs and scratchy throats are a minor nuisance for most Minneapolis St. Paul residents, but respiratory problems that are more serious can be a health risk for many people. Proper humidification is the answer.
High Energy Bills
Low humidity forces you to heat your home to a higher temperature for your comfort. An automatic humidifier helps return indoor air to normal humidity, letting you set your thermostat lower. The savings on your energy bills will show up in every bill.
