Winter comes with all types of challenges, with dry air at the top of the list. Have you noticed your skin cracking or floorboards creaking? Do you have a cold you just can't seem to get rid of? These are symptoms of low humidity. Dry air can wreck havoc on your home and your body. Installing a whole home humidifier can significantly improve your quality of life in 8 ways:
Choosing the Right Humidifier For You
There are two basic types of whole house humidifiers: bypass and steam.
Bypass: A bypass humidifier are best in smaller homes and provide basic humidity control. Typically, they only turn on when your furnace turns on. This means the air will only be humidified if there is a call for heat. As an affordable option, a bypass humidifier can take the edge off. We recommend an April Air Bypass Humidifier, which we will order and install for you.
Steam: Steam humidifiers are for medium to larger sized homes, and provide advanced humidity control. They are designed to put up to 24 gallons of water into your home a day. Steam humidifiers are recommended when customers have specific humidification needs, like hardwood floors or sinus issues. An April Air steam humidifier is the leading product in indoor air products, and will get your home warm and comfortable in no time.
