I live along the northern border of the country, where Winter time is the longest season, and all of us sometimes need to start up the gas furnace in late November, and it’s not unproper to have multiple inches of snow on the ground for Halloween and Mother’s Day; During the Christmas holidays, the temperature is most often well below zero with multiple feet of snow on the ground, and when the outside weather is cold and snowy, the air naturally becomes absolutely dry.
As we blast the gas furnace at maximum capacity, it pulls essential moisture out of the indoor air, but the overly dry air then sucks moisture out of everything it touches, causing injure to wood furnishings, antiques, musical instruments and hardwood floors.
My family complains of sore throats, headaches and itchy eyes. All of us all sneeze and cough more often and always get static shocks! Frizzy hair, chapped lips and dry skin are further problems caused by insufficient humidity, then plus, dry air feels cooler than properly moisturized air, which leads to higher temperature control settings and energy bills. All of us end up putting a greater demand on the gas furnace and there’s a greater chance of malfunction. The solution is both easy and cost-effective. I invested in a whole-house humidifier. This type of air quality accessory installs right into the heating method yet operates independently. I’m able to customize moisture levels and operate the humidifier even when the gas furnace isn’t running. The humidifier has paid for itself by allowing lower temperature control settings. My home feels warmer and more comfortable. My whole family has fewer health complaints and I don’t need to worry over injure to home furnishings.
