WHOLE HOME HUMIDIFIERS
During the winter, when your furnace is running the most, the air in your home can end up becoming abnormally dry. Dry, warm air can bring not only discomfort but a variety of health and preservation concerns for your family and home, which is why you may need to take steps to preserve a more amicable environment indoors. A whole home humidifier could very well be the solution you need, to maintain your personal comfort, health, while giving your energy efficiency a shot in the arm.
Humidifiers function by adding moisture to the air being circulated within your home. These units often attach to your furnace or air handler, and help circulate humidified air through your central duct systems. Many of these units are even able to run on their own when your heater or air conditioner is not; preserving the healthy and comfortable environment you are after.
