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.

When it comes to protecting your home, you want to ensure that you have every safety measure in place. You may have an alarm system for intruders, a smoke alarm to alert your family in case of fire - but what about protection from things you cant see? Were not talking about ghosts, but something that is even scarier: Carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a by-product of combustion, present whenever fuel is burned. Prolonged exposure can lead to lasting health problems and even death. Since carbon monoxide is virtually undetectable, carbon monoxide poisoning is quite common. In fact, the CDC estimates that more than 20,000 Americans go to the emergency room each year due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Monitoring carbon monoxide emissions in your home is so crucial to your familys safety. CO cannot be seen or smelled, which means every homeowner should invest in CO detectors to protect their family. By the time you start experiencing symptoms of CO poisoning - like lightheadedness,

Making the best use of all the spaces in your home often leads to a common question - Should I add ductwork to a three-season room to make it usable year-round? Unfortunately, there is no straightforward answer. Quite simply, the answer is that it depends. But this does not help you, does it? Lets look at a few factors which come into play when making this decision. Insulation Oftentimes, in older three-season rooms, windows are abundant and insulation is lacking. These features leave plenty of room for energy leaks. In short, the structure was just not designed for comfort in extreme temperatures. Adding ductwork to this type of room would likely disappoint. High heating and cooling requirements accompany the lack of insulation and the common single-paned window. The bottom-line is that the room would be cold in the winter and warm in the summer.

While the hot, humid summers of Ohio call for air conditioning, understanding the best unit to meet the needs of any home proves to be a foreign language to many. Lets clear the air with a few facts and figures to get you in-the-know when purchasing an air conditioner. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) produces a rating of sorts for air conditioners. It is figured this way: The amount of cooling a given unit produces (BTU) divided by the amount of electricity (watts) used over a typical cooling season. SEER figures range from 13 to 25. Since the unit is tested on static conditions, the rating represents a units best performance. In brief, this number reflects the maximum rating. For instance, a unit rated at 13 does not perform above but may fall below this figure. Thats helpful. But, what does it mean to you, the consumer? After all, it is just a number on the box. A few answered questions might clear things up even more. What Does the SEER Rating Tell You? Efficiency.
