Ways That a Humidifier Can Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Low humidity can be just as much a problem as excessive humidity, as many of our Magic Touch clients have seen. One of the best ways to battle low humidity in your home is to use a whole-home humidifier, which can be integrated seamlessly with your existing HVAC system.

As part of your HVAC system, a whole-home dehumidifier works automatically to add the correct amount of moisture to your home’s air; you won’t have to manage the dispersal yourself, and the humidistat on your thermostat ensures that the humidifier maintains your set humidity level around the clock.

Why install a whole-home humidifier in your Tempe home?

Here are some reasons to consider:

Better Health

When the air inside your home becomes too dry, your skin and mucous membranes can also dry out. The result of this can be itchy, dehydrated skin, nose bleeds and dry eyes. You may also be more prone to sickness for two reasons: first, dry air can help bacteria and viruses thrive, and second, dry mucous membranes can’t help your body defeat these contagions as well as they should. The excessive dryness can also exacerbate chronic respiratory problems such as asthma. However, when your humidity is balanced, you can avoid many of these issues.

Better Comfort

Humidity holds heat, and in order to feel comfortable, you need a certain amount of humidity in the air. When you don’t, the temperature of your warm and cool air can feel inadequate, i.e., not warm or cool enough.

Reduces Damage to Wood Products

Wood needs a certain amount of moisture to maintain its state; without it, wood will dry and splinter. This means that your furniture, flooring, molding and other wood items can become damaged or even ruined because of too little humidity.

Because a whole-home humidifier becomes part of your entire HVAC system, it’s critical to hire an expert to install, repair, replace or maintain it. The trained professionals at Magic Touch can help you with all your humidifier needs in Tempe, so give us a call today!
