Why You Should Have a Home Humidifier in Western PA

Aprilaire Humidifier Display Screen

A healthy level of humidity in your home will make you healthier while making you home more comfortable. In Western PA, we turn on the heat in our homes for 5-7 months of the year. That’s a lot of time spent with the windows closed, and hot air coming out of our vents. A whole home humidifier is one of the most effective ways to add the proper amount of humidity to your home.

Cold winter air brought into your home and heated likely has less than ideal Relative Humidity (RH) levels. This is due to the fact that colder air is less capable of holding moisture, making it so the colder the air is outside, the less humidity it has the capacity to hold. This is why homes in Western PA that undergo 5-7 months of cold weather should have a humidifier. A humidifier allows you to combat the dry air coming into your home, and add the proper amount of moisture to it, helping to keep your home comfortable.

Make Your Home More Comfortable.

By putting the correct level of humidity back into the air of your home, you prevent problems that can occur from dry air, such as:Recommended Indorr Humdity Levels Relative to Outdoor Temperature

Dry air increases likelihood of getting sick. Viruses causing colds and the flu prosper in low humidity. Dry air has also been proven in studies to make you more susceptible to infection. Dry air can also exacerbate allergy and asthma symptoms.
Dry air causes home damage. Just like dry air causes your skin to crack, it also can cause walls, woodwork, and hardwood floors to crack as well.
Dry air can cause bigger energy bills. Low humidity often makes us feel more cold than you would with the proper amount of humidity, causing you to turn up the thermostat.
• Dry air makes you feel uncomfortable. From bloody noses, to dry

mouth and itchy eyes, sore throat, cracked, itchy skin, and static shocks, dry air is no fun for anyone.
