Well, that’s how most heating systems operate. As in, they heat your home and dry out your air at the same time.
But the air doesn’t just sit there and take it! Nosiree, Bob. Your indoor air is like a vacuum cleaner when it gets too dry, seeking out and soaking in moisture wherever it can find it. And since as much as 60% of your body is composed of water, you and your family are prime targets.
Here are just some of the problems that dry indoor air can cause around your house:
- Dry & itchy skin
- Dry and sore throat
- Nose bleeds
- Dry hair and flaky scalp
- Static electricity
- Damage to electronic equipment
- Cracked and shrinking wood
- Cold-like symptoms and other respiratory ailments
If this all sounds pretty familiar, then it’s time to look into a whole-house humidity control system. Installed directly inside your ductwork, they add as much moisture as you want and need to offset overly dry conditions
During the hot and humid summer months, that same humidity control system will work in reverse to remove excess moisture from the air.
With added humidity during the winter, you’ll also feel warmer at lower temperature settings, and that means about a 4% reduction in your home heating utility costs. Hey, every little bit helps, right?
