How Humidifiers Improve Indoor Air Quality, Glastonbury, Connecticut

Your heating system keeps the home comfortable throughout the winter, but it may also remove moisture from the air. In some cases, the indoor air may become dry enough to cause noticeable issues, from itchy skin to more frequent illnesses. Having a local heating service add a humidifier to your system will dramatically improve the air quality in your home, making it safer and more comfortable.

Why You Should Get Humidifiers for Your Home

Prevent Sickness & Uncomfortable Conditions

heating serviceIf the relative humidity in the air is too low, most people will develop dry, itchy skin and chapped lips that may last all winter. More importantly, low humidity also dries out the sinuses and nasal passages, leaving you susceptible to the flu, colds, and other germs. If anyone in your family has asthma, dry air may irritate the delicate lining of the respiratory system, causing a persistent cough and triggering more frequent attacks.

Reduce Energy Expenses

Dry air drawing moisture from your skin also creates a cooling effect, making you feel colder even when the heat is on. Without a humidifier, you may have to turn the thermostat up several degrees, increasing both your energy expenses and wear and tear on your equipment. Humidifiers distribute moisture throughout the house, which can help to keep you warm even at lower temperatures.

Preserve Your Home

Dry air affects your wallpaper, furniture, and personal possessions much the same way it does your skin, drawing out moisture and potentially causing permanent damage. Over time, you may notice cracks in wooden furniture and musical instruments, flaking paint on walls and artwork, and chipped plaster. A trusted heating service can provide you with a high-quality humidifier to improve your indoor air quality and preserve your most valuable belongings.
