The colder months in Pittsburgh can lead to humidity levels plunging uncomfortably low, causing all kinds of complications to your health and in the home. Some of the more common ill effects of low humidity levels in the home include:
- Respiratory ailments
- Skin irritation
- Static electricity
- Furniture and floor damage
This winter, protect your home or business from the unhealthy and damaging effects of excessive dry air. Simply turning up the temperature will do well for keeping warm, but little to increase the humidity level. Daily activities simply do not produce the moisture necessary to keep the air from becoming too dry, and viruses tend to thrive in areas of low humidity, increasing your risk of colds and other upper respiratory ailments.
At Pittsburgh’s Best Plumbing Heating and Air, we have seen an increase in demand for whole house humidifiers in recent years. These high-tech humidifier systems help to regulate the indoor moisture levels of your home, unlike the small, portable humidifiers we are used to. These whole, house models can be installed directly into your existing HVAC system, where they distribute humidity and moisture in the form of water vapor throughout your home’s living areas. This allows you to regulate and adjust both your indoor temperature and humidity levels from your thermostat.
