4 Benefits of Humidifiers

Minimize Static Electricity

With dry winter air, there also comes static electricity in the form of shocks that are almost inevitable in some homes during the winter. No one likes a jarring jolt of a static shock or having their clothing stick to them. It’s not good for your electronics either. Using a humidifier helps reduce, if not eliminate, static electricity in your home during winter.

Softer Skin

The dry winter air zaps all that much-needed moisture from your skin, causing dryness, leading to flaking and accelerating aging. A humidifier can alleviate these damaging effects and help you maintain vibrant-looking skin.

Healthier Pet & Plant Life

We aren’t the only ones affected by winter’s dry air. Our pets and plants living in the home are affected as well. Plant leaves begin to look droopy, and the soil seems dryer than normal. Pets, depending on the type, are affected in other ways. Humidifiers help keep you and your pets and plants healthy.

Lower Heating Bill

The more the humidity in the air, the warmer it feels in the home throughout the summer months. This is because the excess moisture in the air makes it feel warmer. By adding some moisture to the air in your home during these months, you’ll end up saving on your heating bills.

3 Warning Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality

If you're a Bexley, OH homeowner experiencing one of the following warning signs of poor indoor air quality, we encourage you to call Bexley Heating & Cooling today at (614) 924-7856 for expert recommendations. We offer a variety of products and services to improve any air quality situation.

Air Circulation Problems

If the air doesn’t pass through your HVAC unit, it doesn’t get filtered and purified before entering the rooms of your house. In addition, problems with low airflow from your vents or air leaks in your ductwork increase the number of airborne contaminants in your home and throw off indoor humidity levels.

Musty Odor

Musty odors are telltale signs of mold growth. If the odor is more pronounced around your vent registers or while your HVAC system is running, it’s a major red flag. Mold produces a musty odor because it releases organic microbial compounds that are volatile as it grows. Exposure to these compounds can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, and fatigue.

Frequent Allergies & Illness

The EPA says short-term symptoms of poor indoor air quality include eye, nose, and throat irritation, as well as fatigue, dizziness and headaches. Poor air quality in a home can also aggravate pre-existing conditions like asthma. Indoor pollutants can carry the risk of heart or respiratory disease and even cancer, although reactions to pollutants will vary from person to person. Take notice if respiratory symptoms are worse when you are at home than when you are away from home.

Frequently Asked Humidifier Questions

What is the ideal level of humidity to maintain?
Experts say homeowners should maintain a relative humidity level between 30 and 50 percent. Some even say it’s best between 40 and 50 percent. Humidity levels above 50 percent create a breeding ground for bacteria, mold and dust mites and other pests. Humidity levels below 30 percent increase the risk of flu and cold viruses. It can also create uncomfortable respiratory symptoms.
What size humidifier do I need?
The size of humidifier you need will depend on the square footage area you would like to humidify. Most humidifier manufacturers offer the square footage coverage range with their product’s specifications. If you’re looking for humidity control for your whole house to protect wood and create a more comfortable environment that costs less to heat, give us a call or see our whole-home humidifier special offer.
How much upkeep do humidifiers require?
If you’re looking for a humidifier that requires the minimal work to maintain the humidity level in your residence, you definitely should consider a whole-house humidifier.
