Whole-House Humidifier Settings Affect Comfort And Energy Savings

Winter has already made an early appearance to our area and with its arrival comes dry, cold air. Setting your whole-house humidifier to its proper level makes a difference in how the air feels in your home during the coldest months of the year. Your home’s humidity level should read between 30 and 50 percent, according to medical experts. This setting is where you’ll see the most benefits from your whole-house humidification system.

The benefits of proper whole-house humidifier settings:

  • You can successfully reduce health problems relating to respiratory issues, allergies and dry skin with the help of a whole-house humidification system. The proper humidity setting speeds up the time it takes you to get over a cold.
  • Musical instruments and other items made out of wood stay in tip-top condition. Dry air causes musical instruments to warp because it pulls in the moisture from wooden items in your home.
  • You’ll enjoy energy savings during the winter months with the proper setting on your whole-house humidifier. You can leave your air conditioner at a higher setting and still remain comfortable with the right amount of moisture in your home.

How a whole-house humidification system works:

Whole-house humidification systems work by distributing the correct amount of moisture throughout your home, in every room. The system hooks up to your new or old heating and cooling system. The moisture travels from inside your heating and cooling system to your home’s ductwork and then filters through the rest of your home.
