In the winter, your North Carolina home is a lot like your body. It needs to stay properly hydrated.
Turning the temperature up will keep you warm, but it won’t increase your home’s humidity level. According to medical experts, many viruses thrive in low humidity, increasing the likelihood of catching colds, flu and upper respiratory ailments.
Whole-house steam humidifiers, like the ones available through a professional heating and air conditioning contractor like Stout Heating and Air Conditioning, deliver the perfect amount of moisture to your air providing key benefits for your home and family.
A whole-house humidifier installed by a technician specializing in heating services can decrease the chance of upper respiratory problems. Humidity reduces the incidence of respiratory infections and speeds recovery from the common cold.
When the air in your Rowan County, North Carolina area home becomes too dry, your body is robbed of precious moisture, leaving you and your family with dry, itchy skin, and dry nose and throat symptoms. A whole-house humidifier can help alleviate all of these uncomfortable symptoms and more.
Dry air pulls moisture from walls and hardwood floors which leads to damaging, unsightly cracks. Valuable furniture, artwork and electronics are also subject to the adverse effects of dry air. A whole-house humidifier can help protect your home and its contents by supplying the correct amount of moisture to your air.
From Salisbury to China Grove and Rockwell to Cleveland, most North Carolina homeowners turn up the thermostat when they feel cold. A whole-house humidifier allows you to feel warmer at lower thermostat settings, saving up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat, according to the EPA.
Why suffer through another North Carolina winter of dry indoor air? Increase your family’s level of comfort and protect your valuable furnishings by adding just the right amount of moisture with a whole-house steam humidifier.
