“How Can I Increase the Humidity In My House?” Does that sound familiar? If you’ve lived in Colorado for any length of time you understand just how dry it is. Dry air can aggravate allergies and asthma, cause dry skin, throat, and skin, and even causes painful static shocks. Dry air also causes damage to your home–it can cause walls, woodwork and hardwood floors to crack! Humidity falls under the category of indoor air quality, adding to your health and comfort. Humidifying your home is a worthwhile investment.
Whole Home Humidifiers
If you are looking to humidify your entire home, you may want to consider installing a central air humidifying system. This automatically delivers the optimal amount of humidity to the home without fussing with a separate stand alone unit. There are three types of “whole building” solutions in Fan-Powered Humidifiers and Bypass Humidifiers. Fan-Powered Humidifiers are stand alone units that add moisture directly into your air ducts, while Bypass Humidifiers work with your furnace to deliver humidity throughout your home.
Portable humidifier solutions include ultrasonic humidifiers, cool mist humidifiers, and warm mist humidifiers. Picking the right type for your Longmont home or office has considerations as well.
