Denver and the rest of the greater Denver-Boulder metro area experience dry air all year long, and especially during winter. Dry air has all kinds of negative effects on our bodies. Any air below 30% relative humidity is uncomfortable and could lead to dry skin, nosebleeds, aggravated asthma, and increased vulnerability to illness. There are several ways to combat dry air in your home, but the most effective and lasting is to install a whole house humidifier.
Whole house humidifiers, or “central humidifiers,” are humidifier systems that are connected to your home’s HVAC ducts and humidify all of the air that cycles through your home. Whole house humidifiers effectively humidify all of the air in your home at once, so it will solve your dry air problem immediately. Dry air isn’t the only reason to install a whole house humidifier, either. There are several other ways installing a whole house humidifier could seriously improve your quality of life.
In addition to the obvious benefit of permanently preventing dry air inside your home, whole house humidifiers have several additional benefits, including:
Long story short, whole house humidifiers help keep you healthier, save money, and make your home much more comfortable. All while preventing dry air and all the discomfort that comes along with it!
Whole house humidifiers are installed directly into the ductwork next to your furnace. They use heated air coming from the furnace to evaporate water. Then, fans in your HVAC circulate that evaporated water throughout the air in your home. As long as the whole house humidifier operates, it will keep adding water to the air circulating through your home, preventing that air from drying out.
Most whole house humidifiers automatically adjust to a specially-programmed moisture level appropriate for homes in the Denver-Boulder area. There are a wide variety of whole house humidifier brands and sizes for different homes and considerations. An expert installer can help you figure out which option would be the right choice for your home.
Choosing the right whole house humidifier for your house requires taking several considerations into account. How large is your home? How many rooms? What size are the rooms? How many people live with you? Do different rooms or floors require different amounts of moisture control at once? Are there any rooms you’re particularly concerned about humidifying?
