Whole House Humidifiers
How to Improve Dry Air in Your Home
Dry air is something that no one wants to live with. Not only does it cause sinus problems, increase congestion, dry out your skin and give you chapped lips, but dry air is terrible for people with asthma and allergies. Dust and allergens circulate more in dry environments, and even viruses and bacteria can live longer in the air, making you sick.
What’s the solution? Whole house humidifiers.
A small room humidifier can only help so much – a whole house humidifier is what you need to improve the air quality in your home.
How do Whole House Humidifiers Work?
With a whole house humidifier, the air circulating through your house is diverted into the humidifier and through a water pad. The water pad is moistened with water from a pipe hooked directly to your water pipes. As air is drawn through, it evaporates the water and the vapor gets blown out through your air ducts, evenly distributed into every room in your house. Whole house humidifiers do need to be refilled, though not as often as room humidifiers since they’re larger and can carry more water.
