For most homeowners in Marion, humidity is only a concern during the long, hot summer days. But when it comes to your home’s indoor air, keeping the humidity at the right level is an important part of maintaining your home. During the summer, air conditioning helps control humidity. But what about those dry, winter months? At Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling, we’ve installed hundreds of whole-house humidifiers in Marion, helping homeowners to keep their indoor humidity at the right level.
For more than five decades, we’ve been putting our customers first, making sure they receive only the highest quality work and customer service.
The HVAC technicians at Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling are not only licensed and insured, but they’re also fully qualified to perform any service on your home’s HVAC system.
Because we encourage our technicians to continue their training efforts, you can be sure that your HVAC professionals will use only the latest technologies and techniques when they are working on your heating and cooling systems.
When it comes to choosing a humidifier, you have many options. There are several portable models available, which can help to humidify individual rooms. However, these are usually inconvenient, requiring that you remove the reservoir, fill it in a large sink or tub, and then return it (all while trying not to spill water).
While you can also find larger portable models, even these have trouble adequately humidifying your home. They’re difficult to fill, and because they’re not connected to your home’s ductwork, the humidity isn’t evenly distributed, which can leave some areas dry, while causing water damage in other areas.
The best solution for properly humidifying your home is a system that’s integrated into your HVAC and plumbing networks. These whole-house humidifiers service your home by using your ductwork to evenly humidify every room. And with humidistats integrated into these systems, you can even set different humidity levels in different rooms.
At Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling, we make sure that our whole house humidifiers are simple and easy to use. With water supplied from your home’s plumbing system, you won’t need to refill your reservoir, and once your humidistats are set, you can sit back and enjoy the more comfortable air in your home.
Beyond the convenience of a fully integrated humidification system, whole-house humidifiers offer many other benefits, including:
Dry air can suck moisture from porous materials in your home, including woodwork and drywall. When these parts of your home dry out, they begin to contract, which can slowly cause damage. Wood can start to split and crack, while walls may begin to crumble and crack, as well. Keeping your home properly humidified will help to prevent this damage.
Dry air can be a nightmare for your respiratory health. When the air in your home gets too dry, it can irritate your nose and throat, which can lead to coughing, sneezing, and even nosebleeds. Even worse, viruses like colds and the flu thrive in dry air, making it more likely that you’ll come down with an illness.
With a whole-house humidifier, you’ll make your breathing more comfortable, reducing the likelihood of sore throats and nosebleeds. You’ll also make it harder for germs to make you sick, which means that you’ll be healthier all winter long.
Because the air is drier during the winter, it’s not unusual to experience chapped lips and dry skin — sometimes even to the point of causing painful cracks. While moisturizing can help, installing a whole-house humidifier can be an even more effective solution, preventing your lips and skin from losing moisture in the first place.
Humidity has a large effect on the way that you experience temperature. Humid air prevents evaporation, which is your body’s main way of eliminating excess heat. When your indoor air is properly humidified, your heating system will work much more efficiently, helping you to feel warmer at lower temperatures and saving you money on your utilities.
