You know the old trick from grammar school of scooting your feet across the carpeting just so you can zap your younger sister right in the top of her ponytail-parted hair. I bet you’ve even zapped someone at work! Static electricity is more prevalent in the winter because cold air is drier than in the summer. It’s why you get chapped lips and itchy, dry skin. For new construction or upgrade projects, chances are your home or business needs a humidifier to improve the indoor air quality, ultimately increasing the health value of the working environment. Located in Marion, NC, Appalachian Refrigeration and Heating offers HVAC, heating and air conditioning service. We can help you choose the right whole-building humidifier.
Give us a call to discuss the Healthy Climate® Power Humidifier. It attaches to your furnace or air handler and adds moisture to air moving through the duct system. A built-in fan allows the unit to circulate humidified air even when your heating system is not in operation. Although some people use small, portable humidifiers, they don’t offer a lot of moisture control and you have to always keep an eye on the water levels. By contrast, whole home or business humidifiers put water vapor into the duct work so humidity can be monitored and controlled by your thermostat just as it regulates temperature.
The benefits of installing a whole-system humidifier include general health improvements. Viruses such as those that cause the flu and common cold thrive in dry environments. Wintry, hacking coughs flare up in the winter, a direct correlation to respiratory sensitivity to dry air. Our sinuses and bronchial passages need soothing moisture in the winter to help alleviate and prevent allergies and asthma symptoms. Help with a humidifier!
The building itself and your furnishings will thank you for installing a humidifier. Dry air can damage wood floors, furniture, artwork, and even electronics. Protect the whole building with a humidifier!
