Do you find yourself constantly battling dry skin, sinus problems, or asthma during the winter? A humidifier may be the answer to your prayers! Humidifiers add moisture to the air, which can help improve your overall health and wellbeing. Our professional team at Chatham Comfort Control will help you achieve home comfort and humidity control.
What are Humidifiers?
Humidifiers are devices that add moisture to the air to prevent excess dryness. This can be helpful for people with dry skin, sinus problems, asthma, or other respiratory issues. Humidifiers help prevent and lower the risk of getting influenza, allergy symptoms, asthma symptoms, and more. Humidifiers improve indoor air quality by providing a way to control the humidity in your home. There are many types of humidifiers; contact Chatham Comfort Controls to help you pick the best one for your needs.
Benefits of Humidifiers
Humidifiers have many benefits, which is why they are becoming increasingly popular. You can find one in most homes for a good reason because humidifiers:
- Prevent Snoring
- Prevent the Spread of Airborne Illness
- Prevents Dry Skin
- Prevents Static
- May Relieve Symptoms of Allergies
Humidifiers are necessary to maintain a healthy home. If the air in your home is too dry, it can cause problems like nosebleeds, static electricity, and even cracked furniture. On the other hand, if the air is too humid, it can lead to mold growth. As you can see, it is vital to understand the importance of humidifiers.
Humidifiers Prevent Snoring
When you have a dry air conditioner, the allergens in that atmosphere can cause your throat and nose to become irritated. This makes it harder for you to breathe properly, which leads to snoring problems. A humidifier takes these irritants out of our homes, so we do not have trouble breathing through difficult nighttime hours or stressful days at work.
Humidifiers will help with congestion and clear nasal passages by keeping moisture levels higher. They intensify moisture to the air, helping to loosen and drain mucus and decrease the risk of snoring.
Prevent the Spread of Airborne Illness
When we go to sleep, our body gets to rest and repair, making us feel restored. A humidifier allows you to sleep better, giving you the right amount of humidity. When you avoid dry air, you decrease the chance of airborne viruses such as catching a cold or the flu. Higher humidity levels mean that viruses have a greater chance of sticking to water vapor droplets and falling out, especially during dry winters.
Humidifiers Help Prevent Dry Skin
Humidifiers can be a great way to keep your skin hydrated, preventing dry skin. Your skin cracks or can become more wrinkled due to dry air. Lotion and chapstick are short-term relief options that may help your skin hydrated, but they are not the solution. Figuring out what the cause is and treating it, is better than attempting to treat the symptom strictly. If you are suffering from a skin condition, a humidifier along with your creams is a must to help your skin retain moisture, allow you to sleep better, and reduce scratching.
During winter months, static electricity increases, causing us shocks or making our hair frizzy. Worst-case scenario, static can damage your electronics or create sparks. By using a humidifier, you add moisture to the air and thus reduce static.
May Relieve Symptoms of Allergies
Humidifiers may help relieve allergy symptoms by soothing tissues in your throat and nose. When the air is dry, these areas can become inflamed and make your allergy symptoms worse. A humidifier will add moisture to the air, which may help to reduce your allergy symptoms.
Humidifier Installation Options
The first evaporative humidifier for forced air furnace systems was introduced in 1954 by Aprilaire. Since then, they have continued to lead the industry with whole-home humidifiers. Three types of humidifiers include:
- Aprilaire 1820 70 Pint Crawl Space Pro Dehumidifier
- The Aprilaire 500 Whole House Humidifier
- The Aprilaire 600 Whole House Humidifier
Each of these humidifiers has its unique features, and they all can be found at Chatham Comfort Controls.
Aprilaire 1820 70 Pint Crawl Space Pro Dehumidifier
This particular humidifier is ideal for dehumidifying your basement, removing up to 8.8 gallons of water per day. Some of its features include:
- Interactive display, making set up easy.
- Low maintenance, no messy trays to empty, and simple once-a-year filter cleaning or replacement.
- Easy to maneuver and position during installation and setup.
- Digital RH control.
The compact design of Aprilaire 1820 allows you to install humidification solutions in cramped spaces, making it great for tight spaces.
The Aprilaire 500/600 Whole House Humidifier
These two types of humidifiers have an automatic high output furnace humidifier that consists of:
- Dual sensors to monitor and respond to both outdoor and indoor temperatures to deliver optimum humidity.
- A continent digital control panel that shows the percentage of humidity, lights indicating that the humidifier is running, and more.
- Blower activation switch sets to control when and how the furnace runs.
- Helps maintain your health.
The only difference between these two humidifiers is the coverage and capacity they cover.
