Breathe Easier with Controlled Humidity
MoreVent installs, maintains, and repairs residential heating and cooling systems. Our company also specializes in installing the ancillary equipment that will make your home heating more comfortable and efficient. An excellent example of such an addition is a whole house humidifier. Our team can integrate a dedicated humidifier into your current heating system which will help maintain an optimal relative humidity in your home during the winter. That will make you more comfortable but also lower your heating costs and result in less wear and tear for your heating system. Contact us today to request your free, no obligation quote!
Benefits of Installing a Whole House Humidifier
There are a wide range of benefits to installing a whole house humidifier. We already discussed how they make your home heating more efficient but also more cost-effective over time. But they also result in better sleep, fewer allergies, fewer illnesses, fewer headaches, better skin and hair, and so on.
Fewer Allergy Symptoms
Dryness can cause itchy skin, watery eyes, a runny nose, and a sore throat. If you are already experiencing those issues due to allergies, low humidity in the home can make them feel even worse.
Soothing Your Respiratory System
Optimal relative humidity makes it easier to breathe. Your eyes, nose, throat, mouth, skin, and hair will not dry out, and you will be less prone to headaches, fatigue, restlessness, and insomnia.
Respiratory irritation caused by dry air can lead to snoring, coughing, headaches, muscle aches, and restlessness. Optimal humidity will alleviate those symptoms and help your entire family sleep better.
Lower Equipment Maintenance
When your home has the correct humidity level, it feels warmer. Your heating system will not have to run as often or as hard, and that results in less maintenance and lower costs over the long term.
Central Humidifier Options for Your Home
A central humidifier is a type of whole house humidifier that is integrated into your existing heating and ventilation systems. They are often installed in ducts where they can infuse returned air with moisture.
Bypass Humidifier Installation
Bypass humidifiers introduce moisture to your air through your heating system. They are typically installed in ductwork and provide moisture to the warm air before it enters the living spaces.
Fan-Powered Humidifier Installation
Whereas a bypass humidifier relies on a blower moving air, a fan-powered humidifier has its own fan. That fan pushes air through a water tray, and this approach is more efficient and effective.
Steam Humidifier Installation
Steam humidifiers boil water until it condenses into steam. That steam is then distributed via the ventilation system, and this is the fastest and most efficient approach to optimal relative humidity.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Due to the increased awareness generated by organizations like the EPA, many homeowners are acutely aware that indoor air pollution is a serious health concern that should not be taken lightly. But what many residents do not know is that low humidity is itself a form of poor indoor air quality and that it can exacerbate the causes and symptoms that are associated with other aspects of poor indoor air quality. Dry air is often a byproduct of heating your home without a humidifier, and it can irritate your eyes, nose, mouth, throat, and lungs and also cause headaches, body aches, chronic fatigue, and so forth. In addition to installing humidifiers, we install air purifiers, clean ducts, and provide HVAC maintenance.
Air filters are integral to keeping dust and other pollutants out of your HVAC system, which is why it so important to inspect your air filters on a regular basis and swap them out whenever you can see the dirt. The rule of thumb is every three months, but this varies from home to home, and pet parents often require a more frequent schedule. HVAC air filters do not actually clean your air, however. If you want a system that does that, then we suggest an AirRanger system. We can integrate it into your existing heating and cooling system, and it will trap dust, mold spores, pollen, and much more.
An alternative to air filtration is air purification. MoreVent often prefers UVC air purifiers. These use ultraviolet light, which is what many hospitals use to disinfect surfaces. The Series 3 model and other UVC air purifiers can also be integrated into your existing heating and cooling system. As air passes through the system, the purifier will kill bacteria, viruses, mold spores, dust mites, and much more.
