Win the Fight Against Dry Air With a Good Humidifier

Using a Humidifier for Dry Air

Don't Let Dry Air Make You Sick

The summer months can feel hot and sticky with all that extra humidity, but winter is coming with a plethora of new difficulties. By simply turning on your furnace, you can find yourself with too little humidity in your home and an entirely new set of problems from too-dry air. According to the Mayo Clinic, dry indoor air can leave you with nasty nose bleeds, horrible dry coughs and added complications to any problems that you may have with asthma and allergies. Fortunately, you won't have to worry about the air in your home making you sick with these few simple ways that homeowners can do to combat dry air.

Healthy Air for All

Have a Humidifier Professionally Installed: This is your number one defense against the health difficulties that can be brought about by dry air inside of your home. A good humidifier will work to return the proper amount of moisture to the dry, heated air that can result from running your furnace. The right amount of the moisture in the air will keep your nose, mouth and skin healthy and deter any respiratory difficulties.

Have Your Home Sealed Properly: It can also help to keep the cold, dry air out of your home by having all entry points properly sealed. Have a professional company take a good look to make sure that your home is properly insulated, and they should also look for possible air leaks around your windows and doors, in the attic and in the crawlspace of your home.

Call for Regular HVAC Service: You are far less likely to suffer from dry air and other heating and cooling issues when you are sure to have regular maintenance done on your HVAC system. Before winter arrives, you should have your professional HVAC contractor give your system a complete maintenance check and tune-up. This will ensure that everything is in working order, and you can expect your system to work efficiently throughout the winter.
