Benefits of Whole-Home Humidifier Installation

Reduce the risk of illness

Bacteria and viruses can’t travel as well in moist air. It is possible that using a humidifier might prevent you from catching a bug during the cold season. In any case, dry air can cause a host of health-related problems.

Prevents morning sore throat

Because overly dry air affects your vocal cords, it can leave you with a dry, scratchy throat in the morning. Keeping the air moist and maintaining humidity levels during the winter helps provide relief to your vocal cords, especially while you sleep.

Comfortable sinuses

Have you ever woken up with a dry nose that felt stiff during the winter? Even if you don’t have a cold, winter air dries out the sinuses and lowers one’s immunity to airborne and other bacteria.  More moisture in the air means more comfortable sinuses.

Reduces home heating bills

During the summer months here in the Miami Valley, the more humidity you have in your home, the warmer the air feels inside. This is because the excess moisture in the air makes the home feel warmer. By adding some moisture to the air in your home during the wintertime, you can reduce your home heating bills.

What is a Humidifier?

Humidifiers are appliances that are designed to add moisture to the air in a dwelling, in order to keep the air from becoming too dry. This is especially important in dry or arid climates, as well as during the winter months when the air inside homes and buildings tends to be drier due to the use of heating systems. Humidifiers can be used in single rooms or small areas, or they can be used to humidify an entire home or building.

There are several types of humidifiers available, including whole-home humidifiers that work with your existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to add humidified air to the outgoing air before it is distributed throughout the ductwork and into the home. These types of humidifiers are an efficient and convenient way to maintain optimal humidity levels throughout the entire home.

Types of Humidifiers

If your home is too dry, you should consider investing in a humidifier to add moisture to the air. Beavercreek Heating & Cooling offers a line of humidifiers to help you optimize your home heating system in the winter and relieve dry air and low humidity issues such as wood damage, chapped lips, dry skin, flu symptoms, and allergy and asthma flare-ups. Below are the different types of humidifiers available:

Central Humidifier

Central or whole-home humidification units are installed directly into a homeowners HVAC system and work effectively to humidify the dwelling evenly throughout.

Impeller Humidifier

These are also called a “cool mist humidifier.” They utilize a rotating disc that emits water through a diffuser. This breaks larger droplets up into a fine mist. They are considered a child-friendly option, and require minimal energy to humidify a larger area. The downside is that they can be noisy and a home for bacteria, which tends to gather around the filter. 

Evaporator Humidifier

These single units add moisture to the room it is placed in. Similar to how a boiling pot of water evaporates and sends moisture to the air, an evaporator humidifier works the same way. They are small and relatively inexpensive options. However, they’re only intended for a small area.

Steam Vaporizers

These portable units can be found at your area drugstore or online but keep in mind, they are known to cause burns. Be careful using them if you have pets or small children.

Benefits of a Humidifier Installation

Protect Furniture. Not enough moisture in the air in your home can cause wood furnishing, woodwork, and wood flooring to crack and even split. Using a humidifier helps preserve the integrity of the wood in your home.

Better Sleep. If you or someone in your home snores at night, it might be related to dry sinuses, which makes snoring worse. A moist environment that has ideal humidity levels can soothe dry sinuses, lower snoring levels and bring you the comfort conducive to a good night’s sleep.

Minimize Static Electricity. With dry winter air there also comes static electricity in the form of shocks that are almost inevitable in some homes during the winter. No one likes a jarring jolt of a static shock or having their clothing stick to them. It’s not good for your electronics either. Using a humidifier helps reduce, if not eliminate, static electricity in your home during winter.

General Humidifier FAQ

What is the ideal level of humidity to maintain?
Homeowners and business owners should maintain a relative humidity of 30% and 50%. Some even say it’s best between 40% and 50%. Humidity levels over 50% create a breeding ground for things like mold, bacteria, and pests. Humidity levels below 30%, however, increase the risk of flu and cold viruses. It can also create uncomfortable respiratory symptoms.
What size humidifier do I need?
The size of humidifier homeowners need depends on the square footage area they would like to humidify. Most humidifier manufacturers offer the square footage coverage area with their product’s specifications. If you’re looking for humidity control options for your entire home to protect wood and create a more comfortable environment that costs less to heat, give Beavercreek Heating & Cooling a call or see our whole-home humidifier special offer.
How much upkeep do humidifiers require?
If you’re looking for a humidifier that requires the minimal work to maintain the humidity level in your residence, you definitely should consider a whole-house humidifier. Portable humidifiers, on the other hand, require regular maintenance that includes cleaning it and regularly filling the reservoir.
