It’s essential to maintain proper humidity levels in your Chesterfield home. This is critical not only for optimal home comfort, but also for your health. You may notice physical health consequences and deterioration to your Missouri home as a result of high or low humidity levels.
As a top heating, cooling, indoor air quality (IAQ), plumbing, and appliance repair company, Chesterfield Service is committed to keeping you safe and comfortable, which is why we offer you a solution—a whole-house humidifier.
What Can Happen Without One
When it’s colder outside, our inside air becomes drier and requires additional humidity. Likewise, when the warmer season is here, our inside air is moister, requiring less humidity inside. When these humidity levels are not properly regulated, you may find yourself feeling uncomfortable in your own home. Your body will react to the changes and so will your home.
Our Chesterfield Service experts know how an air conditioning system can help regulate the humidity levels in your home, but this isn’t always enough. If your humidity is too high, your air conditioner will end up having to work even harder to cool your home, leading to higher energy bills without even being able to keep you feeling comfortable.
In cases like these, a whole-house humidifier could be extremely beneficial. It works alongside your current heating and cooling system, accessing flowing water from your plumbing system and providing you with the appropriate level of humidity for your home.
The consequences of low and high humidity levels are paramount. The imbalance can amplify symptoms of respiratory illnesses and result in physical damage to both the inside and outside of your home. Improve your indoor air quality and enhance your home comfort with the help of a humidifier.
Signs of Too Low Humidity
A whole-house humidifier will add a suitable amount of humidity to your home when your levels are too low, especially when your heater is running during the cooler months. A level of 35 to 40 percent is ideal.
Any lower than this, and you may notice some of these signs of too low humidity levels in your home:
- Cracked wood furniture, instruments, floors, or structural elements
- Excessive static electricity
- Allergies or congestion
- Bloody nose
- Sore throat
- Pronounced snoring
- Dry skin
- Respiratory issues
Whole-House Humidifier Benefits
In addition to maximizing your home comfort, having a whole-house humidifier installed in your home offers these additional benefits:
- Lower energy bills, particularly heating costs
- Better physical health
- Protection for wood home contents like furniture, instruments, floors, or structural elements
