As we move into the winter season, humidity levels in homes will be at their lowest. With the heat running, humidity levels can drop as low as 30%. The ideal year-round level is 45-55%, so this drop is significant.
To fight back against the dryness of winter, MTB Mechanical recommends a whole home humidifier. This helpful product connects directly to your furnace, and evenly distributes moisture throughout your home. By raising the humidity level, your home will feel more comfortable, and you can eliminate dry skin and scratchy throats, while also decreasing that annoying static electricity caused by dry indoor air. As an advantage over small portable humidifiers, the whole home system ensures consistent humidity in every room, without the need to monitor water levels. It all works through your existing heating system, making it easy for you all season long.
Best of all, a humidifier can save you money. Warm, humid air feels hotter than dry air because of the moisture it contains. And when the humidity in your home is at an ideal level, you can keep your thermostat at a lower setting and still feel comfortable.
