Americans spend a lot of time indoors. You might be shocked to learn most homes have poor indoor air quality, which can pose a great risk to your health.
The Environmental Protection Agency determined that air pollutants are 2 to 5 times more prevalent indoors rather than outdoors. Air fresheners and candles are not a safe air fresher, because they spread noxious chemicals and hydrocarbons.
Indoor air quality is crucial for homeowners to help mitigate potential respiratory dangers, and Precision Heating & Air is dedicated to helping our customers choose the right air quality control systems for their homes.
Humidifiers are a safe and effective way to improve the air quality in your home. They are also great for dry winter months. Humidity levels drop during winter and can have harmful consequences on your health.
What Is a Humidifier?
A humidifier adds water vapor in the air. The added moisture prevents common irritation to people and effectively prevents dry skin, noses, and throats. Since there is a drastic drop in temperatures during winter months, humidifiers are extremely beneficial to homeowners sensitive to allergens and dry air.
Are There Different Types of Humidifiers?
There are several types of humidifiers, including central humidifiers, impeller humidifiers, and ultrasonic humidifiers.
We can build a central humidifier into your heating or cooling unit. Unlike humidifiers you can buy at the store, this choice spreads humidity throughout the entire house.
Impeller humidifiers are a less-expensive option. Although they only work for single rooms, the devices utilize rotating disks to create cool mists in the selected location of your home.
Finally, ultrasonic humidifiers use ultrasonic vibrations to spread cool mist throughout your home.
What Are the Benefits of Humidifiers?
Humidifiers offer a variety of benefits to homeowners. Learn more about how a humidifier is great for your home.
