Relative humidity is more than relatively important when it comes to healthy and comfortable indoor living.
Too much humidity is a bad thing, right? After all, it creates and promotes an environment where bacteria, mould, various fungi and dust mites not only grow but flourish!
But hang on a sec…doesn’t dry air cause its own fair share of problems? Absolutely! In fact, overly dry indoor air can make you more vulnerable to harmful viruses and respiratory ailments. Bloody noses become more frequent, as does dry skin, frizzy hair, static electrical shock, and other problems.
Bottom line, in the summer, you want to rid your home of excess humidity, and add much-needed moisture during the heating season. If you have a newer, well-functioning air conditioning system, you’re probably okay on the “too much humidity” angle. (If not, let us know so we can help solve that problem for you.)
In the winter, your home heating system pulls the moisture you need out of your indoor air of the moisture, thus lessening your comfort levels and created one or more of the other problems mentioned above.
That’s why we recommend a whole-house humidifier professionally installed and maintained by Nero Air Conditioning & Heating. This system allows you to set the relative humidity level exactly where you feel most comfortable, and change the setting anytime you like
What’s more, you can expect to save 5% or more on your annual fuel bill. That’s because added humidity will make you feel warmer without having to increase the temperature setting on your thermostat.
