Beware of Low Humidity This Winter

During the winter season, most homeowners will likely think of their home heating systems when thinking of maintaining a comfortable environment throughout their living spaces. Keeping your home warm and cozy is not the only matter with which to concern yourself this winter, though. You must also take steps to ensure that your home is sufficiently humidified throughout the winter season. Winter is a pretty dry season anyway, and this dryness can be compounded by running your heating system with any regularity during this time of the year. Using a whole-house humidifier in Everett, WA may be necessary if you aim to maintain great indoor air quality in your home. Schedule all of your humidifier services with the pros at G & S Heating Cooling & Electric.

Signs of Low Humidity in Your Home

If the air is too cold in your house, the problem is pretty obvious. If the air is too dry, though, you may not realize that this dryness is the cause of your discomfort. There are a few warning signs that you may notice which can indicate the lack of sufficient humidity in your home, though. For instance, you may find that your skin is very dry and/or itchy, or that your throat is frequently sore. You may even have frequent bloody noses, and you may be more susceptible to colds and illness. Also, your property may suffer as well, with wooden floorboards splitting and wallpaper cracking, while static shocks may grow more frequent.

Why Use a Whole-House Humidifier?

When dealing with a pervasive issue of dry air throughout your home, you don’t want to be moving portable humidifiers around throughout the house and refilling them constantly. You won’t have to do this when you use a whole-house humidifier. This type of humidifier is integrated into your HVAC system, though it can also work independently of your heating/cooling systems. It is fed water directly, so you’ll never have to fill a tank. Contact us with any questions that you may have about whole-house humidification.
