Dryness in the midst of cold winter months can be frustrating for many reasons. But did you realize that it can also be costly? When humidity drops below a certain point in your home, not only does the air have a harder time holding heat, but it can have an adverse effect on your furniture and the very construction of your house.
Ace Air, Inc. offers a variety of humidifiers to ensure your home remains comfortable all winter long and that your heating system is as efficient as possible. Our highly trained Merced, CA area humidity experts can provide you with expert insight into the type and style of humidifier you need to keep your home as comfortable as possible throughout the cold of winter.
Why Humidity is a Problem
Humidity can be an issue on both sides of the spectrum. In the summer months, high humidity creates extreme discomfort as your body struggles to keep you cool in oppressive heat. In the winter, the opposite is true. Dryness in winter months results in air that cannot hold humidity effectively. As a result, your skin dries out, your heater works overtime and the air gets stuffy and clogged with allergens.
Why does that dryness matter? It’s more than just discomfort. Dried out skin can worsen other conditions like flus or colds, which are common in the winter months. Beyond the health of your family, dryness can cause a significant deterioration in the wood fixtures of your home as well–including flooring and furniture as whatever moisture remaining in your home is drawn out by the dryness in the air.
Effective Humidity Regulation
So, having humidifiers in place that will increase humidity during the dry months of the winter is important. However, those humidifiers must not only increase humidity but regulate it. But, you don’t want too much humidity in your home. It makes the air harder to breathe as it thickens, it can create unwanted bacteria and mold growth, and it will put a strain on your air purification system.
So, humidity regulation is key to good air quality in a home. We work extensively with a wide range of humidifiers of various sizes and models and can provide you with in–depth expertise that will help you choose only the best for your family.
Not only will the installation of a good humidifier system help to reduce your heating bills and keep everyone in your home more comfortable, it will reduce the impact of illness and there’s nothing more important to us than the health of you and your family.
