the simple act of turning up the thermostat, dries out
your house...in fact, the wintertime relative humidity
in the average house hovers around a bone dry 15%.
By contrast, the average humidity in the Sahara Desert
Not The Heat...It's The Humidity
October is a transitional
month. It's a transition from summer to winter...a
transition from the cooling season to the heating season.
Its also the transition from too much humidity
in the summer to too little humidity in the winter.
The failure to control the humidity in your house summer
or winter can bring very unpleasant results.
Because humidity makes you feel
warmer, sweltering summer days can be downright
miserable. Drawers stick...doors that are hard
to close...mold and mildew are all evidences of too
much humidity. It is readily apparent that
keeping humidity down in summer is as important
as keeping it up in winter.
Fortunately, the solution for
these summertime blues is relatively simple.
A central air conditioner, properly sized for your house,
takes care of excess humidity and keeps you cool, dry
In winter, just the simple
act of turning up the thermostat, starts a chain of
events that result in too little humidity and
can bring near disastrous results. That's because
warm, dry air acts like a giant sponge that soaks up
moisture from every thing it touches.
The evidence is everywhere
as your house literally starts coming apart at
the seams. Hardwood floors separate, gaps appear
in moldings and furniture and collectibles shrink, warp
and crack as moisture is sucked out of them by desert
Dry skin, chapped lips, respiratory
problems that may include clogged sinuses, itchy
skin, dry throat coughs, and cracked nasal membranes
as well as aggravated symptoms of allergies and
asthma can all be the fate of those living in
with air dryer than the Sahara Desert. That's
why many doctors recommend humidifiers to allergy
and asthma sufferers to relieve their symptoms.
Dry air also increases static electricity in
your home. The "zap" that occurs when
walk across a carpet, reach out for the light switch
or touch a loved one is not only annoying but the
same static electricity can damage computer disks and
other equipment that uses magnetic technology.
Summary of some of the effects of dry air:
||Woodwork and furniture shrinkage
||Hardwood floor separation
||Piano goes out of tune
||Wallpaper peels at the edges
||Dry throat coughs
||Cracked nasal membranes
of bacteria infection
||Collectibles shrink, warp
||Aggravated asthma & allergy
The solution to these and many other similar problems
can be accomplished with the installation of a whole-house
humidifier. If you know and insist
on a good (not mist or water droplets) humidifier
that will safely and automatically replenish the humidity
in the air in your house.
Many other advantages accrue in homes
when you protect it with air containing the proper
i.e., dry air, absorbing the moisture off your skin
has a cooling effect (just the opposite of summer)
you feel cooler than the actual thermostat setting.
Thus a humidifier helps lower fuel bills because humidified
air feels warmer.
