Although weather in the Naples, Florida area is such that we experience hot and humid conditions most of the year, it is not impossible that we can feel the effects of dry winter air. Dry air can do more than just cause discomfort — it can also decrease your air quality. When you have a professional install a humidifier, the improvement in humidity levels will do much to enhance the comfort air quality in your home.
Increase Humidity Levels
A whole-home humidifier takes the warm air produced by the furnace and adds water vapor to the air before it distributes it to the rest of the home. During the winter months, interior and exterior dry air can lead to dry, irritated eyes, a sore throat, and a dry nose. It can also cause coughing and respiratory or breathing issues. Using a humidifier to add moisture to the air, easily solves this problem.
Comfort and Quality
Indoor air quality and indoor comfort are often related. Your discomfort and the symptoms listed above are signs of poor air quality. You might notice an increase in static electricity, which can cause uncomfortable shocks, and you might feel colder despite the furnace’s operation because dry air causes rapid evaporation of moisture from the body.
Prevent Damage and Loss of Quality
Dry air can also result in damage within your home. For instance, it could cause wood furniture, paneling, flooring, and other structures in your home to crack, warp or shrink. It may also cause wallpaper to peel. A humidifier can help to add much-needed moisture to the air in your home. If you have reason to be concerned about humidity levels in your home, purchase a hygrometer so that you can effectively determine the humidity level. It is recommended that humidity should be between 30 and 50 percent.
