Controlling Home Humidity is a Must!
Too much humidity can create and promote the growth and flourishing of bacteria, mold, various fungi, and dust mites! On the other hand, air that’s too dry can cause its own share of problems, like making you more vulnerable to harmful viruses and respiratory ailments.
So what’s the answer? There has to be a balance. A whole-house humidity control system enables you to maintain proper levels of relative humidity while enhancing the quality of your indoor air.
Benefits of Humidity Control
If your central air conditioner is older, it’s likely less efficient than it was in its prime and less effective at removing humidity while cooling your home. That problem can be rectified with a whole-house humidifier.
By contrast, a forced air furnace can tend to cause dry indoor air, thus resulting in more problems with your allergies, bloody noses, dry skin, itchy eyes, static electric shock, and other problems. The answer here? A whole-house dehumidifier.
Whichever type of humidity control system you might need, you can count on Furnace Doctors to properly size and install it. Once the installation is completed, you can set and change the humidity settings at will for your family’s added comfort, cleaner indoor air, and lower utility bills.
Recommended Humidity Levels
The recommended relative humidity level for a home is between 35% and 45%. This provides just the right amount of moisture without the air becoming too wet, which could cause damage to your home.
