Humidifiers

The winter months can be difficult on a person’s sinuses. Indoor heating tends to lower humidity people need in order to be comfortable, especially when they sleep. Low humidity can cause your skin to dry out as well as the mucous membranes in your nose. To stay healthy, you should set up a humidifier to keep the level of humidity in the air at a certain level. They can definitely make sleeping a lot more tolerable. But how do humidifiers work? Here are some tips.

Protect your family and your home from the unhealthy and damaging effects of over-dry air. Dry nose, cracked, itchy skin, and sore throats. Aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms. Painful static shocks. Chipping paint and plaster. Splitting or cracked wood floors, furniture, trim and molding. Sound familiar? Why go through another season with these problems when there is a solution—an Aprilaire Whole-Home Humidifier.

Turning your temperature up in the wintertime will keep you warm but won’t increase your home’s humidity level. Daily activities such as showering, cooking and doing laundry don’t produce enough moisture to keep your home’s air from being too dry. According to medical experts, many viruses thrive in low humidity increasing the likelihood of catching colds, flu and upper respiratory ailments. The American Society of Otolaryngology reports that it is important to prevent an overly dry environment because it makes people more susceptible to infection.

A Whole-Home Humidifier from Aprilaire, installed by your heating and cooling professional, will deliver the perfect amount of moisture to your air making you feel more comfortable at lower thermostat settings. In fact, the EPA states that you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat!

Increase your family’s level of comfort and protect your valuable furnishings by adding just the right amount of moisture with an Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier.

“If your problem is dry air, consider a humidifier. Clues like awakening with a sore throat, dryness in your nose, or even a nose bleed are signs of too little humidity”.

How It Works

An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier is installed directly to your central new 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 into 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 your heating and cooling system ductwork throughout your home.

Why Aprilaire Whole-Home Humidifiers?  Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifiers were introduced in 1954 as the first  evaporative, flow-through design humidifiers. That’s right—we 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. Only Aprilaire offers fully Automatic Digital Humidifier Control to monitor outdoor temperatures and indoor humidity levels while providing convenient troubleshooting and maintenance reminders.

Whole-Home Humidification vs. 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, 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.

“Humidifiers are commonly used in homes to relieve the physical discomforts of dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. The moisture they add to dry air also helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, splitting woodwork, and cracks in paint and furniture.”
