Will A Humidity Control System Work for Me?
Whole House Humidifier
A power or steam humidifier is a great solution for homes with dry, unhealthy humidity levels. They are ideal for homeowners concerned with the following:
Preservation – A humidifier prevents wood from drying and cracking. It stops hardwood floors and crown molding from splitting. It ensures pianos and other wood instruments remain in tune. It avoids damage to other valuable wood products.
Health – It’s no coincidence that winter is cold and flu season, because many viruses thrive in low humidity. Adding a humidifier can help avoid these viruses and keep your family healthy.
Comfort – A humidifier will help ease the discomfort of dry noses, itchy skin and scratchy throats.
Whole House Dehumidifier
A dehumidifier will most likely benefit you during the summer months, especially for homes with basements or cinder block foundations prone to high moisture. A dehumidifier prevents many problems associated with excessive moisture in the air, including:
- Mold and Mildew – These problems damage your home’s surfaces and cause musty odors.
- Allergies and Asthma – These health problems are aggravated by excessive humidity.
- Dust Mites – These unwanted microscopic creatures thrive in a humid environment.
