Humidification is one of the most important aspects of total indoor air comfort, although it can also be one of the least understood. Humidity refers to the amount of water vapor in the air and since warm air holds more water vapor than cold air, it’s common to experience problems in the cooler New Jersey months. Installing a whole-house humidifier is the first step in ensuring total comfort at home.
Too much moisture in your home can cause mold and mildew and even attracts insects. And air that has too little moisture can cause respiratory problems and even dry out the furnishings in your home. A whole-house humidifier is designed to deliver the perfect amount of moisture to your NJ home, minimizing the ill effects of dry air and making you feel more comfortable at lower thermostat settings.
A whole-house humidifier works in conjunction with your furnace to add humidity to your home’s air by introducing water vapor into the duct system. The water is supplied via a distribution tray that periodically adds the vapor to your heating and cooling system based on your specific needs.
When it comes to sufficiently humidifying the air in your home, a whole-house solution from Brown’s will improve indoor air quality, energy efficiency and offer you ultimate comfort.
Few things are as important as the air you breathe. Low humidity can not only cause the infamous static electricity and dry skin but it can also make you more susceptible to colds and respiratory illness such as asthma, allergies and other winter-time symptoms. With a whole-house humidification system, you can safely control and maintain the proper levels of humidity, keeping your family healthier and breathing easier all year long.
When your indoor air holds the proper levels of humidity, you will feel warmer (and more comfortable) at lower temperatures. In fact, for every 10 percent of humidity you add, it can make the air feel warmer by a degree. Keeping your thermostat turned down can save you at least 5% on utility bills and contribute to energy efficiency.
Ideal indoor humidity levels range between 30 and 60 percent; it’s a delicate balance. With a whole-house humidifier, you can automatically deliver the perfect amount of moisture to your home at any time.
Installed directly to your house’s central heating and cooling system, a whole-house humidifier will provide you with whole-house benefits.
