Virginians are well aware that they live in a state of humidity for most of the summer—literally. And, unfortunately, humidity isn’t just restricted to the outdoors. An uneven balance in your home’s moisture levels can affect your indoor comfort level. Too much moisture in your home can produce that sticky, hot feeling and even lead to the growth of mold and mildew. For these reasons, you will want to perfect your humidity balance as best you can—and a great way to do this is with a whole-house humidifier.
Whole-house humidifier systems not only improve indoor comfort level and balance your home’s moisture levels, they are a great way to prevent allergies, skin issues and other respiratory ailments.
So, let’s talk whole-house humidifiers. First, how do they work? Easy. A whole-house humidifier works by balancing both the moist air and the dry air that flows through your home. It consists of a unit that is installed directly into your heating system’s ductwork and connected to your water supply. From there, when your air gets too dry, the system will add moisture to the air so you can achieve the perfect humidity level for optimal comfort.

In addition to the above benefits, the whole-house humidifier can help save you money. Heated, humidified air allows you to keep your thermostat a few degrees lower, while still enjoying perfect indoor air comfort!
