Benefits of a Whole-House Humidifier

Posted by

If your furnace is robbing your home of much needed moisture, it’s likely you and other family members are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms of “dry house syndrome”:

  • Bloody noses
  • Dry skin
  • Dry throat
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Static electrical shock
  • Frizzy, unmanageable hair
  • Added problems with allergies and asthma

Overly dry air also can shrink wooden floors, doors, and furniture, potentially causing them to crack or warp. The same goes for musical instruments. Dry air also can cause electronic equipment to fail from the same static electricity that can cause all those “ouch” moments. 

The Perfect Cure for Dry Indoor Air

While there are numerous self-help remedies available to moisturize your air, none can outperform a whole-house humidifier from Burton. With you controlling the relative humidity setting, you’ll have just the right amount of relative humidity throughout your home. Plus, your whole-house humidifier and furnace will work in tandem to create ideal levels of comfort.

Equally important, your new humidifier can decrease your home heating costs by about 4%.  With added moisture in the air, you’ll feel perfectly comfortable at lower thermostat settings. It’s the same principle that makes you feel warmer outdoors when humidity levels are high.

We can even integrate humidifier control with your programmable thermostat.

Contact Burton today for more information or a new system proposal. At the same time, we’ll be happy to answer your questions and tell you about other indoor air quality solutions that might be of benefit to you.
