Avoiding Dry Heat This Holiday Season

The comfort of your home is dependent on more than just the temperature on your thermostat. Even if your HVAC system is keeping your home a comfortable temp, your humidity may not be optimized. When your humidity is not managed, your health can be impacted. The Ferguson Heating Air Conditioning Company family wants to keep your family comfy while you make lasting memories. We can install a whole house humidifier in your home, so your humidity will be optimized between 35-50% relative humidity. If you are unsure about the value of humidifiers, explore some of the strong reasons to humidify:

  •       Your Family’s Health—Breathing dry air can cause a variety of respiratory issues, including asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, and nosebleeds. Additionally, your body could become dehydrated by breathing dry air constantly. You will also be at higher risk of contracting a cold since your sinuses are dry. Beyond breathing problems, dry air can also cause dry and cracked skin.
  •       Your Home’s Cleanliness and Safety—Improper humidity also makes your home more likely to allow bacteria, mold, viruses, and dust mites to grow. A whole house humidifier adds the proper amount of moisture to your air to prevent this dangerous growth.
  •       Your HVAC—Your HVAC system works very hard to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. In the winter when the air is dry, your HVAC system must work even harder to heat your home comfortably. A humidifier works with your HVAC system to make your home more comfortable.
  •       Your Wallet—When your relative humidity is balanced properly, you will be comfortable in your home without having to turn your heater up too high. Heating bills can add up quickly, so a humidifier will save your family money and energy all season long.

If you are ready to focus on your family’s warmth and comfort this season, call Ferguson Heating and Air Conditioning Company today! We can get your whole house humidifier installed before your home is flooded with family and friends.
