Save Money and Live More Comfortably with a Whole Home HumidifierHumidifiers help keep the moisture level in your home at a comfortable level. During the winter, your heating system is drying out the air inside your home. Grand Lake Plumbing & Heating can install the right humidifier to help regulate the moisture in your home to fit your comfort needs all winter long.
Fact: According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), you save up to 4 percent on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat. A home with higher humidity levels will feel warmer, allowing you to keep your thermostat at lower temperatures and therefore save you money.
The Health Benefits of Whole Home HumidifiersBesides lowering your utility bills, humidity control in your home is very important to your health for a few of reasons.
Mold, which thrives in high humidity, is dormant or dies when the humidity is low. Dust mites also die when the humidity stays below 50%. Then again, humidity below 30% can be uncomfortable. People can suffer from dry mucus membranes, which can lead to nosebleeds and infections. Low humidity can also worsen the symptoms of asthma.
Humidifiers can ease problems caused by dry air including dry sinuses, bloody noses and cracked lips. Humidifiers can also help ease symptoms of a cold or another respiratory condition.
The key is maintaining a healthy balance of moisture in your air. And, that’s where Grand Lake Plumbing can help. We can set you up with the proper humidifier to meet the needs of your home, your family and your lifestyle.
