Humidifiers: Something Every Home Should Have
whole house humidifiers
When we think of humidifiers, we think of the small, individual units that we plug in next to our beds, drone all night and need water every few days, right? A portable humidifier is like a space heater or a box fan, it does what it needs to in the immediate area around it. Most people would rather have control of the temperature of their entire house, trading in the heaters and fans for a heating and cooling system controlled by a thermostat. Why don’t we think of humidity and moisture the same way? We should.
That’s what a whole house humidifier is for. These units attach to your duct work and, unlike portable humidifiers, there’s no water to replace or fill up. In fact, if you install with Holt Plumbing & Heating and have our maintenance plan, there’s no work required for the homeowner at all, we’ll change the pad as part of your plan.
the benefits are in the air
There are numerous benefits to having a whole house humidifier but the most important is your health. Dry air is breeding ground for viruses and it makes people more susceptible to allergies and infections. The drier your air the more likely you are to catch a cold, cough or flu. With well-regulated air, you’ll be feeling great.
Your house will thank you too. Dry air doesn’t agree with wood floors, plaster, paint, art, electronics or pretty much any other valuable or important thing you may have in your home and can cause damage over time. With a long-term investment like a house, a humidifier system is in your best interest.
And let’s not forget about your wallet. Whole house humidifiers make you feel warmer at lower temperature so you save money on heating. In fact, the EPA says for every degree you lower your thermostat, you can save 4% on your heating bill.
The best part is Whole House Humidifiers give you that wonderful, well-moisturized feeling you get when there’s a portable humidifier blasting right on you in every room of the house.
