Reasons to Install a Whole-House Humidifier Before Winter


While many people dread high humidity levels, having too little humidity can have negative effects on you and your home as well. For example, extremely dry air with a humidity level below 30% can cause respiratory issues, nosebleeds and chapped dry skin. It can also remove moisture from porous materials like hardwood floors and other home components made of wood, causing splitting and cracking.

Find out why you need a whole-house humidifier this winter from one of your most trusted HVAC repair companies.

A Healthier, More Comfortable Home

A dehumidifier keeps your home comfortable throughout the summer, while a humidifier makes cold weather more bearable in the winter.

Dry air can negatively affect your immune system. Sinuses and mucous membranes dry out in low humidity, making it easier for germs and viruses to spread. With a whole-house humidifier, your family can stay healthy throughout the cold days of winter. Whether you need an air conditioner replacement or indoor air quality products, you can count on Dependable Heating & Air Conditioning.

Low Maintenance

Whole-house humidifiers require very little maintenance, keeping up your home’s humidity levels with a one-time setup. You don’t have to worry about having to fill it up with water, either, because it’s hooked up to your plumbing system. It takes just a small amount of water to keep a whole-house humidifier running.

Peace & Quiet

Whole-house humidifiers work through your home’s furnace via the duct system. As there’s no unit in plain sight, it’s virtually soundless, to the point that your family may not even notice that it’s helping keep your home healthy. You can benefit from this if you put importance on enjoying peace and quiet in your home.
