Discover the Benefits of Having a Whole-Home Humidifier

Winter will be here before you know it, and with it will come a distinct lack of moisture in the indoor air of your home. The absence of moisture can be uncomfortable and, in some cases, unhealthy. A great way to alleviate this issue is to install a whole-home humidifier in your house. Take a look at some of the benefits you can derive when you make this wise move.

Overall health

Viruses can easily live and grow in an environment with low humidity levels. So, if your home is lacking moisture in the air, it is easier for you to catch the flu, a cold, or other respiratory ailment. Also, when the air in your home is overly dry, you may also be more susceptible to infections as well. Simply adding humidity to the air can help prevent all of these issues from occurring.

Personal comfort

When the air in your house is dry, it can lead to several bothersome issues. Allergies can get aggravated and skin can get dry and itchy. Dry air is also the cause of scratchy throats and nose bleeds that can be quite irritating. Lack of moisture in the air also causes those sudden electrical shocks that can seem to come out of nowhere. When you have a whole-home humidifier, these maladies will quietly go by the wayside, and you will not have to experience the discomfort that any of these issues bring.

Energy-efficiency

Using a whole-home humidifier helps improve the energy-efficiency of your home.  When your house has an optimal level of humidity, you will not have to turn your thermostat up high in order to feel warm. Since you will not need to rely so much on your furnace, you can save both energy and money.

Preservation

Dry air can be damaging to several items in your home. Having the right amount of humidity, can help to preserve the life of items such as wood floors, furniture, artwork, electronics, and musical instruments.

Having the right level of humidity in your home is an asset for you, your family, and your possessions.

Dirty air conditioner filters come with hidden dangers that you may not be aware of. These dangers can cause harm to your health, wealth and the safety of your own home. Keeping a clean air conditioner air filter can save your family from unwanted illnesses and even better - save you money! The Dangers of a Dirty Filter A dirty air conditioner filter can flare up your allergies. Dirty air filters can cause numerous physical symptoms such as tightness in your chest, fatigue, headache and cold symptoms that youre unable to get rid of. When an air conditioning filter accumulates dirt on the cooling coils, it allows frost to accumulate on the coils and the fans, which makes it difficult for the unit to cool your house. If your filter is dirty, you can expect that the air you breathe in is dirty too. When you dont clean your filter youll also have dirty air ducts. The unit will disperse nothing but dust, dirt and allergens in your home. A dirty air filter means that your air conditioner

Living in Ohio, you know how inconsistent the temperatures outside can be. One day, the air conditioner is up full blast and the next its off completely. It can be hard to keep your house at a regulated temperature that is comfortable for the entire family, especially if youre only turning your AC on the day of high temperatures. So, how do you prepare your AC for those hot summer days? Prepare for Hot Temperatures the Night Before If youve checked the weather and you know a hot day is approaching, you can prepare by turning your air conditioner on the night before. Unlike your car, your entire home needs time to get the temperature down to a comfortable setting. Avoid overworking your AC by turning it on the night before hot temperatures approach. This will give your unit enough time to cool down your home. The Set It and Forget It Rule If you havent already, we recommend investing in a Nest learning thermostat or a smart thermostat.

If you are strapped for cash, replacing your air conditioner may be out of the question. You may be thinking you can get away with fixing a leak with Freon R-22, but now youre appalled when you are faced with the price tag that goes along with it. Why is Freon R-22 so expensive? The reality is you are a victim of supply and demand due to the shortage of Freon R-22. You see, nearly 30 years ago the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) ruled that Freon R-22 should be phased out as it contains ingredients that have been shown to deplete the ozone. Since then the EPA has gone on to ban the manufacturing of air conditioners charged with R-22. Additionally, in 2010 they reduced the production of R-22 by 75% and then reduced it further in 2015 to 90%. But that is the least of our worries here in 2017, because in 2020 they will cease all production of R-22. After that only recycled R-22 will be used to service air conditioners. With demand for R-22 growing and production of R-22 on the verge
