During the winter season, the focus of most comfort seeking homeowners is on keeping their homes warm. This is obviously a very important goal in terms of comfort, but it is not the only factor to consider. You must also make sure that your home is kept adequately humidified throughout the winter season.
When the cold weather sets in, the air is dryer than it is during the summer. That can spell trouble for your comfort, your health, and even the condition of your property. With a professionally installed and serviced whole-house humidifier in North Seattle, WA, you can maintain the perfect level of humidity in your living space.
Is a Whole-House System Really Necessary?
You may be familiar with portable humidifiers, which can sit atop a dresser or bureau and use a tank of water to facilitate the humidifying process. These devices are handy, and can certainly benefit those looking to add more humidity to say, a single sleeping area. What they are not ideally suited for, though, is maintaining proper humidity levels throughout an entire house.
These humidifiers often simply have an on/off switch, so you cannot control relative humidity the way you can with a whole-house system, which uses a sophisticated humidistat control. They also have to have their water reservoirs replenished in order to continue working. That is simply inconvenient.
With a whole-house humidifier, on the other hand, you need only turn the humidifier on and set the humidity level. The system will maintain that level accurately, and it is fed water directly from a supply line. Not only will a whole-house humidifier maintain proper humid levels throughout the entire house, without over-saturating the air, but it will do so conveniently and with greater efficiency than multiple portable units could.
