Why Do I Need A Humidifier

Indoor air and humidityAs we transition from summer to fall, it’s important to think ahead to winter. While preventative maintenance checks are in order for both your HVAC and plumbing systems, it’s critical to plan for other weather-related issues. Once the humidity of the summer and fall pass, the arid nature of winter must be addressed.

Your building, whether residential or commercial, has an optimal range of humidity.
In the summer, you should have sixty percent or less in terms of humidity, and in winter the humidity should rest between twenty-five and forty percent.

If the percentage is too high, your home will become an environment prime for mold growth. If it’s too low, some of these symptoms may start to occur: warping of wood furniture and flooring, dry or cracked skin, and nose bleeds. On top of that, you may start to experience the most wonderful trait of winter: static shock.

To avoid these issues, and others like it, we recommend investing in a humidifier for your home. Before running out to buy one, you should consider which type you need. Do you need a humidifier for one room of your house? Or do you need a system that’s powerful enough to affect the environment in your whole building?
