Aprilaire whole home humidifiers help to cure indoor dryness and give you the very best whole home comfort. Heating your home dries out the air. The resulting dry air absorbs moisture from you and everything inside your home. Even newer, tighter-built homes will succumb to the negative effects of air that is too dry.
Why does every home need a humidifier?
- Irritation and discomfort
When you heat your home, indoor humidity levels fall below the optimum range. This causes you to experience the discomforts of too dry itchy skin, annoying static shocks and being “too cold” at normal temperatures.
- Unhealthy air
Viruses thrive in low humidity conditions and can actually increase the likelihood of getting colds, flu and other upper respiratory ailments. The American Society of Otalaryngology advises the importance of preventing an overly dry environment because it significantly increases susceptibility to infection.
- Home damage
When heated air isn’t properly humidified, it causes walls and ceilings to crack and wood floors and trim to separate. Expensive musical instruments can go out of tune and electronic equipment can fall victim to static electric charges, requiring expensive repair or replacement.
- Higher energy costs
Dry air robs the moisture from your skin, making you feel colder, which means you turn up the heat. Dry air also shrinks the framing around doors and windows, resulting in gaps that let in cold air from the outside, making your home less energy efficient.
Defeating these issues is easy when you look at an Aprilaire whole-home humidifier. With their full line of evaporative and steam humidifiers, an Aprilaire humidifier is effective at delivering the right levels of humidity throughout your entire home.
