Proper levels of humidity inside your home are often underestimated and misunderstood. When cold air from the exterior of your home finds its way inside, the natural reaction is to turn up the thermostat. As the air inside your home raises in temperature, vital moisture in lost in the process. For that, K Lund Mechanical offers residential humidifier services to ensure that your family is healthy and comfortable.
Humidity affects your health and home
If the air inside your home is too dry, that will negatively affect the health of you and your family. Not only does dry air create common health problems like sore throats, dry and itchy skin and bloody noses, but the lack of moisture in your home can lead to ongoing colds, flus and respiratory infections. Viruses that cause colds and flus thrive in low humidity environments, making you susceptible to infectious health problems.
Dry air also affects your home furnishings over time. Wood floors, walls, paintings and other wood features wear down with prolonged exposure to dry environments. Carpeted areas and electronic devices may also be vulnerable to static electricity, causing shock and possible malfunction. Installing and maintaining an indoor humidifier will help prevent wear and tear on your home.
Indoor Humidifiers Save You Money
As mentioned above, the moisture in the air is lessened as the air temperature rises to provide heat. Maintaining appropriate humidity levels will help save you money on you monthly energy bill. Low humidity causes rooms to feel colder than normal for a given temperature. This typically causes home owners to turn up the thermostat in order to maintain the desired level of comfort. When indoor humidifiers keep the humidity levels between 30-50%, the rooms and living spaces in your home will feel adequately heated.
