Humidification

If you’re a native of Alabama or the South, it’s likely that when you hear “humidity,” your mind goes to the miserable humidity we experience every summer. Could you imagine actually welcoming humidity into your home to create a comfortable environment?

What Does A Whole House Humidifier Do?

A whole house humidifier, or a central humidifier, connects to your home’s HVAC system, and uses the moisture from your home’s water supply to keep the humidity levels balanced in your home. One of the main differences between a central humidifier system and a portable humidifier system is the elimination of a tank that needs to be filled manually, which can leave standing water where bacteria and mold can grow, causing issues for your home’s air quality.

At Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air, we do recommend using a water filtration system with your home’s central humidification system, as this can help to remove any impurities, creating a healthier environment within your home and eliminating any minerals that could build up on your walls. We feature humidifiers by Aprilaire and help our clients choose the best option for their home.

BENEFITS OF WHOLE HOME HUMIDIFICATION

A whole house humidifier is one way to keep your house comfortable during the cool winter air. Many of us know of the negative effects of humidity on your home and family, but dry air can also have negative effects that you may not even be aware of:

Research indicates that dry air makes it easier for germs and viruses, such as the cold and flu viruses, to survive for longer periods of time
Dry air can lead to sore throats, dry nasal passages, and bloody noses
Increased static electricity, which can be decreased with added moisture in the air
Dry air causes people to feel colder during a time when you want to feel warmer
Adding moisture to the air in your home creates a warmer environment and may save money on your electricity bill
Dry air can cause wood to shrink, crack and splinter, chipped paint, and peeling wallpaper

These issues can easily be resolved by installing a whole home humidification system, and our certified HVAC technicians are here to help keep you and your family comfortable throughout the entire year.
