The dry heat of a California summer often means increased comfort: aridity draws heat from our bodies rapidly, helping to cool us off even during roasting weather. However, the dry climate does bring problems with it as well that can affect you and your home. If you suffer from problems due to low moisture in your house’s air, consider having professionals install a whole-house humidifier in your HVAC system.
Here are three benefits you’ll receive from a whole-house humidifier. These advantages go beyond what any portable room humidifier can deliver. But you’ll need to have expert technicians handle the work. Shaw’s Air Conditioning offers installation of humidifiers in Fresno, CA (and dehumidifiers as well). Contact us to find out about the options for balancing the humidity in your house.
Benefits of Whole-House Humidifiers
- More comfort: Low humidity may help you feel better during intense heat, but when the weather cools, you’ll discover low humidity makes you feel worse during the cold. The moisture in your skin will easily escape into the dry air, taking body heat with it and making you feel chillier than the room’s temperature. Balanced humidity not only means you’ll feel more comfortable year-round, it also means translates to work for your heater during the fall and winter because you will feel warmer in general.
- Improved health: Both high and low humidity can create health issues. In the case of aridity, a household can experience dry skin, respiratory infections, and an increase in flus and colds that transmit easier in dry weather. The arid conditions also contribute to the viability of some dangerous viruses. With balanced humidity, these viruses rapidly die out, and the other problems will also vanish. There’s a bonus as well: fewer shocks from static electricity, so you won’t have to feel wary about touching the doorknobs during the winter.
- Less damage to furnishings and possessions: Low moisture is destructive for your home’s interior. It peels wallpaper and makes paint chip. Dryness also warps and causes wood to split, which will mean damage to your furniture, floors, and walls. (If you have antique furniture, you should invest in a humidifier now.) Musical instruments will suffer from aridity, as will other precision devices.
