If this is the case with the indoor air in your home or business, then Big Red Services will install a whole house humidifier to add a healthy amount of humidity back into the air with any complete HVAC system replacement.
Some benefits to purchasing and installing a humidifier are revolved around health, comfort, preservation, and energy efficiency. Many viruses thrive in low humidity. A whole house humidifier can help avoid colds, flu, and other respiratory problems. Also, extremely dry air can lead to uncomfortably dry noses, scratchy throats, and cracked, itchy skin. Overly dry air can damage wood floors, plaster, paint, furniture, artwork, electronics and musical instruments as well. A whole house humidifier will help protect these items and keep them in their best condition. This also can help you feel warmer at a lower temperature which allows you to keep the thermostat set low, and save money on your heating bills.
There are three main types of whole home humidifiers. Bypass humidifiers, Fan-powered humidifiers, and steam humidifiers which all offer different benefits to your home. Bypass humidifiers can be a good choice if you’re on a budget and require little maintenance. Fan-powered humidifiers are great for larger spaces and don’t rely on your HVAC to run. Steam humidifiers use very little water in comparison to other types of humidifiers and don’t require a lot of maintenance.
While portable humidifiers certainly have their value, they do not compare to the whole house devices that we install and service. We offer a range of different makes and models to suit every home, and we can make sure that yours is properly integrated into the home to maximize its effectiveness and efficiency. The benefits of this approach are clear. For example, while portable units require constant monitoring and maintenance, whole-house humidifiers interface directly with your HVAC system. And while portable units affect only a relatively small area of the home at any given time, whole-house humidifiers humidify your entire home without you having to lift a finger.
