You may be familiar with the feeling of walking into a greenhouse and feeling the high humidity levels. And you certainly know how it feels on a warm summer day with high humidity. The same is true with a properly humidified home in the winter – it feels warmer! A whole house humidifier installed on your forced air system (ductwork) will make you more comfortable and reduce dry skin, sinus and nasal discomfort and static. The heat in a home can drive humidity levels down to 10 to 15 percent. Normal, healthy levels are 30 to 35 percent! You may also notice that wood trim is pulling apart or your wooden floors have gaps. This is also due to low humidity levels and can be reduced with proper humidity.
Oehlert Bros. Inc. can install a whole house humidifier in just half a day and you’ll soon find out that it is the best addition to your home’s heating system!
