3 Benefits of Using a Whole-House Humidifier

Now that we are moving into the winter season, homeowners are beginning to turn to their home heating systems in order to keep their homes warm and cozy. In addition to being quite cold, the air outside in the winter months also tends to be quite dry. While your heater may not dry out the air in the same way that your air conditioner does, you should still remember that having very dry air in your home can have a number of negative effects on yourself and others within your living space.

That is why you may want to consider the use of a whole-house humidifier in Arlington, VA. If you decide that a whole-house humidifier is the right option for your home, just dial our number and schedule your humidifier services with the qualified technicians at Polar Bear Air Conditioning & Heating Inc.

Whole-House Humidifiers Are Convenient and Effective

We know that there are a number of portable humidifiers on the market today, but the fact is that they are neither as convenient nor as effective as whole-house systems are. With a whole-house humidifier, you’ll never have to worry about filling your system with water, as it is piped directly to the device. You also won’t have to deal with wheeling or moving a portable unit around your home. Just turn on your humidifier, and enjoy sufficiently heated air throughout your entire house.

You Need Humidity to Live Comfortably…

Yes, having too much humidity in the air can lead to cold, clammy environments in the winter, and muggy, uncomfortable weather in the summer. However, a whole-house humidifier allows you to manage the humidity in your home exactly, meaning that your skin won’t dry out and you won’t suffer other ill effects of low humidity, but you also won’t be over-saturating your air, either. Striking the right balance of humidity in your home is integral to living comfortably.

…and Healthfully

Finally, remember that surrounding oneself with very dry air can also have negative health effects. In addition to dry skin, you may suffer frequent nosebleeds and/or sore throats, as your sinuses and mucous membranes dry out, and you may also be more susceptible to illness. We believe that you deserve better than this, so schedule your humidifier services with us.
