What Are the Benefits of Adding a Central Humidifier in My Home?
What you need to know about the product upgrade benefits before you pull the trigger and buy a central humidifier.
Without product upgrade benefits, there's no reason to invest in top-of-the-line HVAC equipment. That goes double for add-ons like humidifiers. But the good news is there are a couple of vital benefits to a whole-house central humidifier.
When you decide to add a humidifier to your home, you want humidity control. It's critical. You don't want to have a bunch of guesswork to set and reset your humidifier to get it right.
A central humidifier uses a hygrometer to measure the humidity levels in your home to make sure they stay consistent. You can set the humidity level and then forget it. The humidifier does all the work by humidifying the air as your HVAC system warms it and sends it out to circulate in the rooms of your home. But because of the built-in hygrometer, you don't have to worry about too much humidity and the potential for mold and mildew that goes with it.
Room humidifiers need to be cleaned and refilled regularly to ensure they function properly and that mold and mildew, not to mention dirt and dust, don't build up on the inside of the unit. A central humidifier only needs to be cleaned and maintained once or twice a year and can be done by a professional technician during regular HVAC maintenance.
To help keep your home comfortable in the winter with the right level of humidity, consistent temperatures, and a more energy efficient HVAC system, consider getting the right central humidifier.
