Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers

Control the Humidity in your home for better health and comfort.

We know that the function of this important appliance is to increase the humidity in a room. But why would you want to bring up the humidity level? Here are some reasons:

To avoid dry skin. White, patchy skin that cracks open and bleeds is painful and uncomfortable. More common in dry winter months, dry air around you sucks up the moisture from your skin and leaves it totally dehydrated and rough to the touch. Humidifiers will ensure your skin remains soft and healthy.

To prevent sinusitis and nosebleeds. A dry environment irritates your nasal passages, leading to a variety of issues including inflammation of the sinuses (sinusitis) and nosebleeds. A dry and cold environment favors the spread of viruses such as the common cold. Because humidifiers increase the moisture in the air, they contribute to your general health. You can even put inhalable medicines such as eucalyptus oil into the humidifier to disperse it in the air and speed up the recovery process.

Helps to warm the air. If the air in a room is humid, it will lead to that particular space being warmer, as heat gets trapped due to the tiny water particles in the air. In winter, this will help increase the temperature of your home. You’ll use less energy to feel warm and comfortable at a lower temperature—saving you money.

To reduce static electricity. If you are someone who constantly gets shocked with small currents of electricity every time you touch metal in your home, you know what an annoyance this can be. Part of the reason static electricity gets initiated is because of dryness in the air–on surfaces of metal objects and your skin. Increasing the humidity with the help of a humidifier will naturally reduce occurrences of static shock.

To enhance sleep quality. Dry air can lead to discomfort, headaches, and itchiness which will affect your sleep quality. A slightly higher humidity will ensure that you get proper rest every night, which will likely increase your productivity.

Keep wooden floors and furniture intact. Dryness has been known to split, warp, and damage hardwood floors and furniture. Hydrating these surfaces with air of proper moisture levels can help prevent replacements.

These are only some of the reasons you should get yourself a good humidifier today from Gross Heating & Air Conditioning. If used properly, it will maintain your life quality no matter what curveballs the dry climate throws at you. Hydrate your environment today!

Remember, while a little moisture can be beneficial for your health and home, excess humidity can lead to other issues. Too much moisture can be a breeding ground for mold and mildew, your rooms can smell musty, and you may see condensation on windows and mirrors. You’ll also feel uncomfortably warm at normal indoor temperatures since your air conditioner controls the temperature but not the humidity. Let Gross Heating show you how a whole-home dehumidifier can help to alleviate these problems.
