We have quite a few customers from cooler parts of the nation who look at us funny when we suggest they have whole home humidifiers installed. They wonder why we would want to add humidity to their home; after all, they moved here for the dry, almost-perfect heat. We don’t disagree that the weather in the Gilbert area is close to perfect, but it’s too dry, especially for those of us who may have allergies and asthma.
If you’ve lived where it’s cold in the winter, you know how bad indoor air quality can get. The same is true here in the summer. Our homes are sealed to prevent heat, dust, pollen, and contaminants from coming in, but the air itself is stagnant. Poor indoor air quality can cause breathing problems if not regulated properly. One of the best solutions is to install a whole home humidifier, which will keep humidity levels at a comfortable level.
Benefits of Whole Home Humidifiers
Just as portable humidifiers add moisture to the air, that’s how whole home humidifiers work. The moisture makes harsh, dry summer air easier to breathe and…
- Creates an environment where viruses are less likely to thrive (Moisture scares them away. They love the dry heat.)
- Decreases static electricity
- Prevents dry hair and itchy skin
- Less likely to suffer dry mucous membranes, which make you more susceptible to colds and respiratory illnesses
- Less damage to wood floors and furniture
- Increased energy efficiency
With a regulated level of moisture, it means you don’t need to set your thermostat higher or lower for the same level of comfort. We estimate this can save you as much as 5% on electric bills, while also creating a healthy, comfortable environment for you and your family.
