Why Install a Humidifier with My Home Furnace?
Your home furnace works to heat your home and provide you and your family with a comfortable temperature, but it can also be hard on your skin and lung health, creating an uncomfortable atmosphere. How? Humidity.
More specifically, a lack of humidity in your furnace system means that the dry air distributed by your furnace goes throughout your house and can have a negative impact on your home and health. Portable humidifiers work for a single room, but require additional time and energy to turn on that a furnace humidifier handles automatically throughout the home. By allowing the experts at Johnson Heating & Cooling to install a furnace humidifier, you can lower your overall energy bills, protect elements of your home and live in a more comfortable environment.
How a Furnace-Mounted Home Humidifier Works
There are several different types of furnace humidifiers available for your home that work in slightly different ways, but all of them provide you and your home with additional comfort.
A bypass humidifier relies on the furnace to blow air through the humidifier unit, distributing moisture in the air throughout your house. A fan-powered humidifier, on the other hand, can directly move air through the humidifier and into your home’s ductwork to provide moisture even when the furnace is not in operation.
What are the Benefits of Installing a Furnace Humidifier?
- Treat the dry air in your home and stop the damaging effects of dry air on your home. Parts of your house like wood flooring, furniture and other delicate fixtures are prone to dry out and develop cracks over time with dry air, and a humidifier can put a stop to this process.
- Lower your energy bills with lower temperatures. It’s proven that higher humidity can make you feel more comfortable at a lower temperature. With a furnace-mounted home humidifier installed by Johnson, you won’t have to keep the heat as high to stay in your comfort zone.
- Eliminate dry skin. Without enough humidity in your home, your skin can dry out and crack, becoming an uncomfortable condition to deal with throughout the winter. Additionally, more humidity can improve lung health and lessen the effects of asthma.
