Whole House Humidifier
Humidity control can be obtained with a Whole House Humidifier and an Air Conditioner. You can either increase or decrease the relative humidity in your home. Too much humidity (over 70% RH) can harbor mold and allow condensation problems. Too little humidity (under 30% RH) can lead to many discomforts, such as dry skin and excessive thirst. Around 50% RH would be ideal for human comfort. In Colorado anything above 30% RH is usually comfortable, especially in the winter time. Your Air Conditioner can dehumidify, although we usually do not have excessive humidity problems in Colorado Springs.
Why Do I Need a Whole House Humidifier?
As the weather gets cooler, the air gets drier. Winter in Colorado can be very dry. A whole house humidifier can help to alleviate dry-itchy skin, dry eyes, eczema, nose bleeds, chapped lips, congestion, static shock and other dry winter related problems. If you have hardwood floors, antique furniture or a piano you need a humidifier. Wood will crack, a piano will go out of tune. If you have swollen nasal passages, sinus headaches, asthma, a cold, the flu or respiratory infection, you should have a humidifier installed today. They run automatically, so you don’t have to waste time refilling or adjusting them. With a whole home humidifier, relief is in the air.
