Whole-Home Humidifier Installation in the Charlottesville, VA Area
Most people think of humidity as something they want to avoid, but dry winter air can be harsh, irritating your skin and worsening your cough when you’re sick — but that’s just the beginning of the problem in most homes. Often, cold weather means raising the thermostat to turn on your furnace, drying your home’s air out even more.
This results in poor indoor air quality, making your home less comfortable and healthy. It can even increase dust and problems for HVAC, mechanical, and electrical equipment. Fortunately, it’s a problem that’s easily managed with a whole-home humidifier that will keep the moisture in your home at a healthy, comfortable level.
At Albemarle Heating & Air, we can install a humidifier suited to your home so you can enjoy balanced humidity without sacrificing warmth on the coldest days of winter.
How Does a Humidifier Work?
A whole-home humidifier adds moisture to the air in your home. It’s connected to your HVAC system and uses water vapor to increase the humidity levels. The humidifier draws water from a reservoir and uses a water panel to distribute the moisture throughout your home.
A whole-home dehumidifier does the opposite, extracting water from the air and draining it away to reduce excessive humidity in the summer. Your home may need one or both as they work in opposite seasons, like your air conditioner and heating system. The goal is to keep indoor air between 30% and 50% humidity year-round.
Benefits of Installing a Whole-Home Humidifier
A whole-home humidifier is well worth the investment. By keeping your home humidity within the recommended range, you’ll enjoy:
- Reduced risk of dry skin, eyes, lungs, etc., and the discomfort associated
- Reduced susceptibility to infections and viruses
- Improved sleep quality and less snoring
- Reduced allergy symptoms
- Less dust
- No need to manage multiple portable humidifiers
