Cases of the flu are not rare this time of the year in New Jersey, particularly for 2017. We’re only a month into the New Year and already flu cases have reached dangerously high levels in this area. This is just one of the problems that a Mahwah, NJ humidifier installation could help you avoid, but a pretty significant one.
Dry air lowers immunity, which makes it easier for occupants of a home to pass along illnesses. Additional, dry air can make individuals who are already sick feel worse, whereas a humidifier can help ease symptoms. If you need even more of a reason to invest in one of these systems, we’ve shared even more advantages below.
Alleviate Dry Skin
Of course with dry air comes dry skin. There are not a lot of things that are more annoying than waking up in the morning with dried, cracked, or painful skin. Plus if you have any skin allergies—such as eczema—the dry air can exacerbate the problem. The moisture that a whole-house humidifier adds to your indoor air can soothe dry skin and help prevent it from becoming a problem in the first place.
Eliminate Allergy and Asthma Symptoms
Okay, so adding a whole-house humidifier to your home may not completely eradicate allergies and asthma for those who suffer from them. However, added moisture can greatly improve symptoms. If there was any way to reduce suffering from allergies and asthma, wouldn’t you want to take it? A whole-house humidifier is the way to do that!
Preserve Your Property
Dry air isn’t just bad for your health, it’s bad for the health of your home as well. Dry air can cause a few different issues, such as peeling paint, dried out furniture, excess static electricity, dried out wood furnishing and even wood instruments. Keeping the moisture levels of your indoor air at a comfortable level will also help keep the appearance and shape of your home and possessions nice, and preserve the quality of your home.
Why a Whole-House System?
You may have used a portable humidifier before. Maybe you utilized it in a child’s room while they had a cold. But would this help if your child didn’t stay in their room for the entire length of their illness? Chances are, no, it wouldn’t.
A whole-house humidifier is convenient in that it can be integrated directly into your existing HVAC system, and it provides even humidity levels throughout your entire home. Everyone in your household deserves to be comfortable, and this is an efficient way to make sure that happens.
Plus, a whole-house humidifier allows you to set your heater’s thermostat a few degrees lower than you would have to otherwise, which means the heating system won’t have to work as hard to do its job. Not only will this reflect on your monthly energy bills, but it will also help your heater last longer.
