Protect Your Family and Your Home from the Unhealthy Effects of Over-Dry Air
Humidifiers are built to remedy your home’s dry air needs in winter by adding just the right amount of moisture. We all know the issues that come with dry air. Sore throat, bloody noses, and dry skin. Dry air can be a byproduct of central heat. As your furnace heats up your home, the moisture can be sucked out leaving dry air as a result. This is a primary reason why so many of these symptoms, especially dry skin, pop up in the fall and winter.
During winter months, properly humidified air can reduce the transmission of viruses like the flu by up to 30%, in addition to reducing asthma flare-ups, and helping you sleep better. Dry air can lower your body’s immune response as it dries out nasal cavities making airborne viruses and airborne bacteria transmission more likely.
Dry air in the house can hurt your home’s structure too. It can result in cracked structures and harm your home’s wood furnishings including musical instruments, wood tables, and wood floors. If you are experiencing static electricity issues, your home may be too dry. Getting your home’s humidity as close to 50 percent is advised to help make your home more comfortable and your air healthier.
Whole Home Humidification Versus Portable
Too much humidity can be as much of a problem as too little humidity. Unlike portable units the Aprilaire Whole-Home Humidifier continually monitors relative humidity levels in your home, and then works to deliver the right amount of moisture—never too much or too little—to your entire house. Aprilaire humidifiers don’t require the daily cleaning and disinfecting that many portable units require, and you never need to worry about the risk of microbial organism growth due to standing water.
Why Aprilaire Whole Home Humidifiers?
Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifiers were introduced in 1954 as the first evaporative, flow-through design humidifiers. That’s right Aprilaire invented the very first, truly effective, whole-home humidifier. Since then, Aprilaire humidifiers have been imitated, but never duplicated, and continue to lead the way in whole-house humidification systems.
How Does It Work?
An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier is installed directly to your new central or existing heating and cooling system. Humidity is introduced into your home’s air in the form of water vapor, which prevents minerals from entering the air in your home and potentially in your lungs.
Water is supplied to the distribution tray, allowing it to flow evenly across the Aprilaire Water Panel®. The resulting humidified air is then distributed via the ductwork throughout your home.
