Do you tend to cough, sneeze, or wheeze a lot in your Oregon home? If so, you might want to consider installing a whole-house humidifier.
Running your furnace and sealing shut your windows all winter keeps everyone warm, but it also creates low humidity levels inside your home. The dry air can wreak havoc on your health and your furniture.
At Diversified Heating & Cooling, you will find a quality selection of whole-house humidifiers and other indoor air quality products designed for your comfort. Our family-owned business takes great pride in creating a healthy environment for homes and businesses in Central Oregon. We believe in redefining comfort.
The Dangers of Low Humidity
The ideal indoor humidity range is no higher than 50 percent. You can purchase a relatively inexpensive instrument called a hygrometer to measure the humidity level in your home. Or you can try this simple test: fill a glass with water and add some ice cubes. If there is no condensation on the outside of the glass after a few minutes, the humidity level in your home probably is low.
Your biggest risk with low-humidity levels is picking up a virus. Dry air is a natural breeding ground for the flu bug. Dry air causes your skin to crack and dries up your nasal passages, leading to scratchy throats, stuffy noses, and irritating coughs.
Over time, the dry air can negatively affect your home as well by warping and splitting your wood furniture and floorboards. If left unchecked, it can even compromise your home’s wooden support structures. Dry air also will dry out caulk or glue, creating gaps around your doors and windows. A drafty home is harder to heat in the winter, leading to higher utility bills.
Our solution is a whole-house humidifier that adds moisture to the air, restoring proper humidity levels and improving your indoor air quality. These energy-efficient systems integrate with your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to provide comfort throughout your entire home.
