The Cold Winter months are here in the Midwest and it is the beginning of the humidity season inside your home. As the temperature falls outside there is less moisture in the air. Your furnace runs for longer periods of time which creates a warmer, dryer environment.
This is the time of year with a humidifier installed in your home will eliminate the health problems of a dry throat, dry skin and static. It will also help with adding more moisture to eliminate cracking of hardwood floors and wood furniture.
Typically in a single family we would recommend an Aprilaire By_Pass Humidifier with a Humidistat Control installed on wall that monitors and sets humidity to a desirable percentage which is typically set at 35% during the winters months. This Humidifier is installed on the ductwork in your HVAC system and humidity is circulated to entire home when furnace is running.
This by-pass humidifier can be sized to your home based on the square footage of your house which will dictate the amount of moisture which it will add to your home. You can be comfortable at a lower temperature in your home when humidity is added to your system. It will also reduce allergens in the air stream to prevent respiratory infections. Another words you will be able to breathe a lot better which makes for a healthy home.
