Humidifiers by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

You may be familiar with small portable humidifiers that can be placed in individual rooms.  You fill the tank with water and turn it on and the machine disburses humidity into the air until it is turned off or runs out of water.

Whole house humidifiers are installed directly into a heating/cooling system.  It introduces humidity in the form of water vapor into the air at the source – heating ducts.  The level of humidity is monitored and controlled by the thermostat, just like the temperature is and an even level of moisture can be released into your house all year long.

Many viruses thrive in low humidity which can increase the likelihood of catching the flu, colds and other respitory infections.  An overly dry environment can make people more susceptible to infection.  Putting humidity back into your home can reduce the incidence of all of these problems.

Dry air can damage many things in a home including wood floors, furniture and paint.  Supplying your house with the proper amount of humidity can protect your home from the dry air. 

 Turning up the thermostat raises the temperature in your home but doesn’t necessarily make you feel any warmer.  A whole house humidifier can help you stay warm at lower temperatures.  You can save money on your energy bill for every degree you lower the thermostat.
