Improve Your Indoor Air Quality with Humidifiers
Although there are a variety of styles of humidifiers, they all do the same thing: humidifiers add moisture to the air. This moisture increases the level of moisture in your home, penetrating the air molecules you breathe, which goes a long way in alleviating a lot of common cold-weather conditions. This can also help reduce the static electricity in your home (common during Ohio’s winter months) and prevent dry cracking in paint and wood furniture. Most importantly, humidifiers can help to improve indoor air quality and relieve a variety of health issues, such as dry skin and bloody noses.
4 Types of Humidifiers
Central or whole-home humidifiers are integrated into a home’s HVAC system and provide even humidity distribution throughout the dwelling.
A “cool mist humidifier,” also called a rotating disc humidifier, produces a fine mist by breaking up water into smaller droplets through a diffuser. It’s child-friendly and uses little energy to humidify a larger area, but can be noisy and a breeding ground for bacteria around the filter.
A single room evaporative humidifier works by adding moisture to the room it’s in, similar to how a boiling pot releases moisture into the air. They’re small and affordable, but are only suitable for small spaces.
Beware of portable humidifiers as they can cause burns. Keep them out of reach of pets and small children.
Commonly Asked Humidifier Questions
What is the ideal level of humidity to maintain?
Maintaining indoor humidity between 30-50% is recommended for home and business owners. A range of 40-50% is considered optimal. Humidity above 50% can promote mold, bacteria, and pests growth, while below 30% raises the risk of flu/cold viruses and can cause respiratory discomfort.
What size humidifier do I need?
The ideal humidifier size for homeowners depends on the room size to be humidified. Check the square footage coverage of the product when choosing a humidifier. For whole-home humidity control, consider a central or whole-home unit. Contact Beavercreek Heating & Cooling for a special offer on whole-home humidifiers.
How much upkeep do humidifiers require?
A whole-house humidifier offers low-maintenance humidity control for your home, while portable units need frequent cleaning and refill of the water tank.
