Is the Air in My Home too Dry?

You may have heard the saying “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity” in regards to discomfort. While it is true that very humid air can make people very uncomfortable, the fact of the matter is that surrounding yourself with overly dry air is certainly no better. If the air in your home is too dry, you should really do something about it. We have the perfect solution. Contact a member of our staff, so that you can reap the benefits of a professionally installed and serviced whole-house humidifier in Spring, TX.

How Do I Know if the Air Is too Dry?

If the air in your home is too hot, that’s probably going to be fairly obvious to you. You may not realize as immediately that the air therein is too dry, though. There are plenty of warning signs to keep an eye out for, fortunately. You may notice, for instance, that your skin is dry and itchy. It may even start to crack, which can be quite painful. Sore throats and bloody noses may also develop more frequently, and wooden floorboards and furniture in your home may begin to split. Increased instances of static shocks are also common, and can put sensitive electronics in your home at risk of damage.

Why Choose a Whole-House Humidifier?

Did you know that running your air conditioner round the clock can actually dry out the air in your home? Did you know that you can use a whole-house humidifier in conjunction with your air conditioner to prevent this from happening? With a whole-house humidifier, you don’t have to worry about refilling water tanks or moving a unit from room to room. It will just use the same ductwork that your AC does to ensure that sufficient moisture is present in the air surrounding you.
