Control the Humidity to Control Your Comfort: Whole-Home Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
Humidity levels in your home play an important part in air quality and your comfort. Too little humidity and you run the risk of static electricity, elevated energy costs, home damage, and even increased respiratory problems—all caused by dry air. Other health-related issues low humidity can cause are sore throats, itchy skins, dry eyes, and painful static shocks.
The Solution For Too Little Humidity in Your Woodbury Home
Adding a whole-home humidifier from Aprilaire to your central heating and cooling system will provide comfort throughout your home by delivering the perfect amount of moisture. You’ll be more comfortable at lower thermostat settings, which will save you money on utility bills. In fact, for every degree you lower your thermostat, you can save up to four percent on your heating bill. For maximum health, your home should maintain an optimum humidity level between 35 to 50 percent.

Too Much Moisture Can Be As Bad As Too Little
While a little moisture can be beneficial for your health and home, excess humidity can lead to problems. Too much moisture can lead to mold and mildew, musty-smelling rooms, and warped doors and wood furniture. Additionally, your skin feels sticky in the summer and clammy in the winter. Controlling moisture and maintaining proper humidity levels is the key to comfort.
