For most homeowners, winters are nearly impossible to get through without a good, reliable heating system. While making your home warm and comfortable by prepping the heating system is of course important, don’t forget that you also need to regulate the humidity, as any reputable heating repair company would recommend. Otherwise, you might have problems associated with air that’s either too dry or too moist, which can range from the common cold to the growth of mold and mildew.
One of the most important pieces of equipment you need at home — and which should be installed before winter hits — is a whole-house humidifier. If you’re still on the fence about having one installed in your home, consider the following advantages.
You Can Control It With Great Ease
A whole-house humidifier typically comes with a remote control, so you can adjust the humidity level in your home with ease just by pushing a button. You also don’t have to move the unit around the house like you would a portable humidifier, which is even more convenient.
It Doesn’t Need to Be Refilled
A portable humidifier requires refilling with distilled water once the tank is empty. With a whole-house unit, you can turn it on and forget about it because it draws water from your home’s plumbing system and thus doesn’t need to be refilled.
It Operates Quietly
No matter how quiet a manufacturer claims a portable unit to be, it’s probably not going to be as quiet as a whole-house model. This type of humidifier enables you to control humidity levels in your home without being bothered by the sound the unit makes.
Homebuyers Love It
Most potential homebuyers will be pleasantly surprised to learn that your home is equipped with a humidifier, which means the unit can raise your home’s value.
You Don’t Have to DIY
Your heating repairman can install your whole-house humidifier, so you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself.
It Does Its Job Without Being in the Way
A portable unit is always visible and often in the way. A whole-house unit is “invisible”, so you can enjoy its functionality without it obstructing your movements.
Of course, while a whole-house humidifier can be installed and then virtually forgotten, it is a mechanical device that will probably need some attention from time to time. It may require the services of an air conditioning repair technician if it’s due for maintenance or cleaning, but beyond that your humidifier is likely to give you many comfortable winters with hardly any issues.
