How many times have we all heard “It’s a dry heat” during our scorching summers? The Arizona desert is well known for its lack of humidity, except during the monsoon. Humidity refers to the amount of water vapor in the air and warm air holds more water vapor than cold air.
Low humidity causes static electricity, dry skin and hair, itching, and chapping of the skin. Mucous membranes in the nose and throat dry out, making you more susceptible to colds and respiratory illnesses. Using a cool mist humidifier in the bedroom where you sleep or in the living room while your family watches TV can safely add moisture to a single room. These portable devices need to be cleaned and refilled often, though.
Since there are issues with both exceedingly dry air and air that is too humid, a whole-house, humidification system, where you can control and maintain the proper levels of relative humidity, may be the answer. With a whole-house humidification system from John’s Refrigeration, you will be able to maintain ideal levels of humidity all year long.
When the air in your home holds the correct levels of humidity, there’s no need to set your thermostat higher for the desired level of comfort, which saves you money on your utility bills and contributes to energy efficiency. In fact, you can expect to save 5% or more on your annual utility bill and also add to your family’s indoor comfort while helping to prevent and control problems with dry, itchy skin, asthma, allergies, colds, and other respiratory issues. Your family will be healthier once the air inside your home is healthier.
