Humidifiers are appliances that help to increase the amount of moisture in the air in your home. There are smaller humidifiers available that are portable and used for single rooms, and there are whole-home humidifiers that can be installed with your air conditioning system. During some parts of the year, the air in your home can become very dry, and while lotion is one way to combat the dry atmosphere, you can also replace the moisture in the air using a Big Bear humidifier.
Portable humidifiers do offer a lot of conveniences, but they won’t give you the amount of control you can get with a whole-home humidifier. Whole-home humidifiers are installed directly into your heating or cooling system. So your home’s air source is directly infused with water vapor. You’ll be able to use a thermostat to regulate the amount of moisture you’d like to have in the air. And you’ll be able to keep an even level of air-moisture in your home throughout the entire year. Our Big Bear humidifier specialists can professionally install a whole-home humidifier and make sure that it’s in the best condition possible.
Big Bear humidifiers can have several benefits for your home and your family. For one, they can increase your home’s energy efficiency. When you turn up the heat on your thermostat, you won’t necessarily feel much warmer. But with a humidifier installed, you’ll notice the warmth at lower temperatures. Because the water vapor is being heated, your system will be able to heat your home much more efficiently. This can save you up to 4% per degree lowered on your thermostat on every heating bill.
Aside from feeling warmer, there are several ways your Big Bear humidifier can make your home more comfortable. Dry air leads to sore throats, cracked and itchy skin, and dry noses. It also irritates asthma and allergy symptoms. Installing a humidifier will alleviate these symptoms. Dry air can also be damaging to your property. Plaster, paint, wood floors, and furniture can all negatively affected by a dry atmosphere. And artwork, electronics, and musical instruments can sustain serious damages as well. But a balanced air-moisture level in your home year-round can help to preserve and protect your property.
Some viruses can survive more easily in low-humidity in environments. So without a Big Bear humidifier, you raise you and your family’s risk of catching the flu, colds, and more. The dry environment also makes you more susceptible to infection. But making sure your home’s air is moist can reduce the likelihood of serious illnesses and infections. Our Big Bear plumbers and HVAC contractors can install a humidifier in your home’s heating and cooling system and make sure the job is done professionally. Whether you have an older heating system or a brand new one, a Big Bear humidifier can be installed, and you’ll notice the benefits right away.
