Between a global pandemic, icy roads, and heavy snowfalls, homeowners can expect to be indoors more than ever this winter season. With so much time spent inside, it’s important that you stay comfortable and warm without it negatively impacting your well-being. It’s easy to crank up the heat on your home’s furnace and not give it a second thought, but all that dry heat can cause issues for someones health.
Luckily, home humidifiers are a great alternative to traditional, dry heat furnaces that can keep you comfortably warm without making your skin dry or nose stuffy. To that end, Service Express is pleased to break down everything you need to know about furnace humidifier installations, types, and the many benefits they can provide.
Benefits of Furnace Humidifiers
Furnace humidifiers for your home, battle dry winter air by circulating moisture throughout your home. Traditional furnaces can often circulate too much dry air that can irritate your lungs and skin and can cause mold to spring up around your house.
Furnace humidifiers make sure that all the air that gets sent from your home’s heating unit is much less dry and can keep you feeling comfortable as well as warm. HVAC professionals like Service Express can install furnace humidifiers directly into a home’s heating system, and help you choose from available unit types based on your home’s size and your budget.
How Furnace Humidifiers Work
At this point, you may be wondering “how, exactly, does a furnace humidifier work differently than the ones I’ve seen plugged right into the wall?” As mentioned earlier, furnace humidifiers for your entire home interface directly with your home’s HVAC system.
Rather than plug a humidifier into each and every one of your home’s outlets, you can instead install furnace humidifiers to constantly circulate clean, warm air around the house. Certain humidifier types, which we’ll cover in just a moment, can also access your home’s water line to optimize moisture levels in your home’s air.
What is the Right Humidity Level for Your Home?
Furnace humidifiers can rely on their built-in tools like humidistats and sensors to detect and respond to your home’s level of humidity. The right level of humidity for your home depends on multiple factors like outside temperatures, the size of your house, how many people occupy it, and how much moisture is already in the air inside.
To account for these variable factors, certain types of furnace humidifiers can hook up to your home’s water supply so that they can accurately detect your humidity levels and only turn themselves on when necessary. Other unit types like whole-home furnace humidifiers can interface with a humidistat and turn on only when they detect humidity levels lower than what you’ve specified as optimal. Service Express works with our customers who need to upgrade to a furnace humidifier to choose the type that makes the most sense for their home and budget.
