Humidifiers by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

Dry air can cause respiratory problems and increased allergy symptoms for many people, especially in the winter.  Dry air in your home can draw moisture out of materials such as wood.  It makes the temperature feel cooler that humidifier air so you set your thermostat higher to reach the same comfort level.

There are two types of humidifiers, small portable units and whole house humidifiers are permanently installed with your central heating & cooling system.  After your whole-house humidifier has been installed on your forced air furnace system, you can set the humidity level and forget about it.  The whole house humidifier operates with a hygrometer to measure the humidity level and it automatically humidifies the air as your furnace warms it distributing it to every room through your ductwork.
