While autumn is just starting here in Peachtree City, the holidays will soon evaporate into colder, winter weather. As such, there will be a lot of discussions regarding the efficiency of various heating methods to keep us warm. Whether it be electric, gas, wood or coal, all homes face the same set of issues — dry indoor air. Is this a big deal? If so, what can be done about it?
Overly dry air can cause some health issues, such as inflammation of the mucous membrane, which lines your respiratory tract. When this is compromised, you’re more susceptible to colds and the flu. Damage to the eyes and skin can even be linked to an overly dry living environment.
The Whole-House Humidifier Solution
Besides common health ailments, dry air can also damage your walls and furniture, which devalues their worth and makes selling your home at market price more difficult.
A whole-house humidifier system doesn’t just benefit your home during one season. Even in the summer, you’ll find humidifiers to be very beneficial. Your A/C provides relief during hazy, hot summers, but your relative comfort may still be adversely affected. Summer air conditioning can dry out the air in your home. You may feel more comfortable with less air conditioning, which also means less operational cost.
It’s quite common for areas like Peachtree City to be humid during the summer months. But in order to truly enjoy your home in comfort, whether it’s summer or winter, you need to think of your system as more than just heating and cooling. Coupled with an appropriate humidifier, the other two systems can operate more efficiently and cost-effectively.
