Humidification Is One of the Most Important Aspects of Indoor Air Quality
Humidification is the process of adding moisture to the air to increase humidity. Many people associate humidity with the discomfort of hot, steamy summer days. And it's true that too much humidity causes problems. Yet when properly balanced, humidity offers many proven benefits to your health, home, and comfort.
Aprilaire offers the best humidifiers to add the proper amount of humidity in your home in order to prevent problems caused by dry air.
Low Humidity Causes Dry Air
Low humidity can increase your likelihood of getting colds, flu, and other upper respiratory ailments. Viruses that cause colds and flu thrive in low humidity. And, according to The American Society of Otolaryngology, dry air can make people more susceptible to infection. In addition, drier air can aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms.
Low humidity can cause home damage. It causes walls, woodwork, and your beautiful hardwood floors to crack. Electronics can fall victim to static electric charges, requiring expensive repair or replacement.
Low humidity can cause higher energy costs. Low humidity can make you feel too cold at normal temperatures leading you to turn up the thermostat. This leads to higher energy bills.
Why Choose The Best Humidifier?
"Humidifiers are commonly used in homes to relieve the physical discomforts of dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. The moisture they add to dry air also helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, splitting woodwork and cracks in paint and furniture."
Installed directly to your home's central heating and cooling system, a whole-home humidifier provides whole-home comfort—unlike portable units that only address certain rooms.
