Heating our homes in winter can drop the humidity level inside as low as 30%. Air this dry irritates the air passages in our nose and lower airways and causes our skin to dry out and crack. Low humidity is also damaging to wooden objects in our homes like furniture, hardwood floors and musical instruments.The good news is, you don’t have to suffer until warm weather arrives. MTB Heating and Air can install a whole house humidifier that connects directly to your furnace and distributes moisture throughout your entire home. Raising the humidity level will make your home feel more comfortable and eliminate scratchy throats and dry skin. Plus, annoying static electricity caused by dry indoor air will be greatly decreased.
A whole house humidifier can also save you money on your monthly utility bill. Warm humid air feels hotter than it is because of the moisture it contains. When the relative humidity inside your home is at an ideal level, you can keep your thermostat at a lower setting and still feel comfortable.
