Indoor Humidity Control
You can greatly improve the comfort in your home, especially during our cold, dry months, with a humidifier allowing you to adjust the level of humidity. You’ll see marked improvement with common symptoms related to dry air such as electrostatic shock, dry skin and scratchy throats.
Some humidifiers boil water, creating steam and directing the moisture into the ductwork of the heating system increasing the humidity in the home. Other humidifiers draw warm air from the furnace / air handler through a wet evaporator pad and then deliver the moisture into the ductwork.
Unlike conventional portable home humidifiers which are limited to the room they are located, professional home humidifiers allow for better humidity control throughout the entire home by using the homes heating and s central air system.
1042LH Legacy Humidifier
Airdrie Air recommends the 1042LH Legacy Humidifier will deliver comfort in your home and offers many benefits including; reducing asthma and allergy symptoms, protect woodwork (floors, furniture musical instruments) in addition to lowering the constant cycling of air.
Summer air feels warmer because the air contains moisture. Adding humidity to your home during dry winter months will allow you to rely on the home heating system less and provide greater comfort.
The 1042LH Legacy Humidifier distributes warm air through a water-soaked Vapor Pad® inside the humidifier adding moisture to the warmed air and is then sent through the homes’ central heating and cooling system.
Dry air can cause woodwork to crack creating gaps in windows & doors which then allows cold air from outside into the home. When cold, dry air enters your home and is warmed to room temperature, the relative humidity can drop to as little as 5%. Compare that to the average 25% relative humidity of the Sahara Desert and you can understand why the air inside your home can seriously affect your health and comfort. Since various studies have estimated that most people spend as much as 90% of their time at home indoors, there’s reason to be concerned about indoor air quality. Dry air also feels colder, with a humidifier you can lower your thermostat - saving you money. Turning your thermostat down just three degrees can reduce your heating bill by as much as 5%.
A home that is properly humidified can also reduce viruses which thrive in low humidity. Dry air, common in the winter months, can trigger asthma and allergy symptoms, as well as increase dry itchy, cracked skin and throat and nasal irritation. You can help protect your family’s health by installing a humidifier.
