Chipping away at the ice

A real game changer was adding a humidifier to our gas furnace system, then for a long time I just thought that our body went to the dumps in the Wintertime. I always got sick, had chapped lips as well as a bloody noses throughout the season. I mentioned to our neighbor a single afternoon about how dry our skin is as well as blamed it on the weather. My neighbor said it is entirely our air quality. After some research I realized that the snow as well as cold does dry out the air, however our air quality is what was killing me. First, I was getting sick because the gas furnace was dusty. The dusty air quality was awful for me to breathe in as well as hurting our immune system. After cleaning the gas furnace, I am quite healthy, but next, the dry skin, chapped lips as well as bloody nose is all due to dry indoor air conditions. When the oil furnace runs it naturally dries the air conditions. Adding a humidifier allows moisture to work its way into the indoor air conditions. When our oil furnace runs so does the humidifier. Having moisture with heating is just the way to go. I have no more dry skin skin troubles as well as our heating equipment runs better. With it being more moist, it feels warmer so I can set the temperature control at a lower degree to save money. The energy bills are so low as well as our gas furnace doesn’t have to run as much. I am basically the spokesperson for getting a humidifier. It has changed our life as well as our heater’s life for the better.
