Static Electricity? Dry skin, bloody noses? Is your wood floor beginning to buckle? All these problems can occur due to a lack of humidity in your home.We can install a humidifier in your home to help prevent any of these issues.
In the home, point-of-use humidifiers are commonly used to humidify a single room, while whole-house or furnace humidifiers, which connect to a home’s HVAC system, provide humidity to the entire house.
In winter, when cold outside air is heated indoors, the humidity may drop as low as 10-20%. This low humidity can cause adverse health effects, by drying out mucus membranes, such as the lining of the nose and throat, and can cause respiratory distress . The low humidity also can affect wooden furniture, causing shrinkage and loose joints or cracking of pieces. Books, papers, and artworks may shrink or warp and become brittle in very low humidity.
