Keeping a home at the right humidity level can make a noticeable difference in it's comfort level and can also help control your heating costs. But, what constitutes a good humidity level for your home? The ideal indoor humidity range lies between 30 and 40 percent in the winter months, to below 50 percent during the summer.
When the humidity levels in your home fall below 30 percent, you may begin to notice an unpleasant effect on your skin and nasal passages. On the other hand, high indoor humidity when the outdoor temperature is frigid will result in condensation on your windows. Even worse yet, humidity of over 65 percent can encourage the growth of mold.
This is especially true if you live in northern climates where it can be exceptionally dry in the winter. You may be thinking about getting a humidifier to make the season more comfortable. Humidifiers decrease chances of contracting illness during colder months by keeping mucous membranes in the nose and throat moist. This allows for proper expulsion of bacteria that causes infection.
Other benefits include relief for irritated sinuses and dry skin. Snoring is greatly reduced by the presence of an indoor humidifier as well. Peaceful nights alone could provide enough incentive for making the purchase but there are many questions shoppers tend to have when picking out a new humidifying system. We attempt to cover the most common ones below.
Understanding how humidity affects your home is an important part of using your home humidifier. If you are experiencing any problems with your indoor home humidity contact us at (216) 731-9400.
Warm mist humidifiers have an easier time dispersing through large homes, large rooms, and even up to a second story. Cool mist on the other hand is a cool fog, and can only humidify one room, or one floor if it is powerful. The cool mist humidifiers also often feature comfort control knobs, that allow you to get just the right amount of humidity out of the system.
No matter what type of humidification systems you install, it's advisable to have it done through an experienced HVAC specialist. We will be able to recommend the model best suited for your needs at the price you are comfortable with. Plus, we will make sure you have an accurate humidistat installed as well to keep that moisture at the correct level.
