Whole house humidifiers from Aprilaire provides solutions to dryness, static electricity and more. Is your Colorado Springs area home suffering from dry indoor air, static electricity or poor indoor air quality? Do you or your family suffer from dry noses, scratchy throats or itchy skin? Are your hardwood floors cracking? Do you frequently experience static electricity shocks when you touch certain items in your home? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then the Aprilaire Whole-Home humidifier may be the solution to your indoor dryness. Low humidity levels during the spring and winter months in Colorado can result in a variety of indoor air problems inside of your home. Aprilaire humidifiers offers a solution. Heating your home dries out the air inside. The resulting dry air absorbs moisture from you and everything inside your home. Even newer, tighter built homes will succumb to the negative effects of air that is too dry. IRRITATION AND DISCOMCORT When you heat your home, indoor humidity levels fall below the optimum range. This causes you to experience the discomforts of too dry itchy skin, annoying static shocks and being too cold at normal temperatures. UNHEALTHY AIR Viruses thrive in low humidity conditions and can actually increase the likelihood of getting colds, flu and other upper respiratory ailments. The American Society of Otolaryngology advises the importance of preventing an overly dry environment because it significantly increases susceptibility to infection. HOME DAMAGE When heated air is not properly humidified, it causes walls and ceilings to crack and wood floors and trim to separate. Expensive musical instruments can go out of tune and electronic equipment can fall victim to static electricity charges, requiring expensive repair or replacement. HIGHER ENERGY COSTS Dry air robs the moisture from your skin, making you feel colder, which means you turn up the heat. Dry air also shrinks the framing around doors and windows, resulting in gaps that let in cold air from the outside, making your home less energy efficient. An Aprilaire whole-home humidifier adds the right amount of soothing moisture to your entire home. To achieve the same effect with a portable unit, you would need to place one in every room of your house. There’s no need to experience the discomfort, health problems or damage to your home and furnishings caused by air that’s too dry.
