How Does it Work?
For those especially dry months, humidifiers are devices that add moisture (or humidity) to the air in a home or building according to its needs. A humidifier can be used for a single room, it can apply to a small area. We also have humidifiers for an entire home or building. Whole-home humidifiers can be linked with the fan in your furnace, HVAC system, or air handler to blow humidified air throughout the ductwork and into the home.
They can also work independently of your HVAC equipment to maintain humidity levels even when the furnace or air handler isn’t in use as a stand alone product. Humidifiers are essential in dryer climates, like Ohio’s winter months, when the air dries out in the home to an extent that can aggravate one’s health and even damage the home itself and woodwork inside it. The relative level of humidity should be at least 30 to 35 percent in the home.

Benefits of Humidifiers
Breathe Cleaner Air with a Humidifier
Living in a dryer winter climate like Ohio, whole-home humidifiers can become a necessary add-on component. Here are 4 benefits of owning a humidifier:
Protect Your Furniture
Not enough moisture in your home’s air can cause wood furnishing, woodwork, and wood flooring to crack and even split. Using a humidifier helps preserve the integrity of the wood in your home.
Healthier Pet & Plant Life
We aren’t the only ones affected by winter’s dry air. Our pets and plants living in the home are affected as well. Plant leaves begin to look droopy, and the soil seems dryer than normal. Pets, depending on the type, are affected in other ways. Humidifiers help keep you and your pets and plants healthy.
Minimize the Risk of Illness
Bacteria and viruses can’t travel as well in moist air. It is possible that using a humidifier might prevent you from catching a bug during the cold season. In any case, dry air can cause a host of health-related problems.
Reduce Static Electricity
With dry winter air in Southern Ohio, there also comes static electricity in the form of almost inevitable shocks in some homes during the winter. No one likes a jarring jolt of a static shock or having their clothing stick to them. It’s not good for your electronics either. Using a humidifier helps reduce, if not eliminate, static electricity in your home during winter.
What is Indoor Air Quality?
When you own a home, comfort shouldn’t be your only consideration for HVAC equipment. When it comes to Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, Indoor Air Quality is a critical issue that is often neglected.
This is often the case because most homeowners feel that air pollution is strictly an outdoor problem. Nevertheless, studies indicate this is false. It turns out the air inside many workplaces and homes is far more polluted and toxic than the air outside. Because the average American spends more than 21 hours a day indoors on average, air quality deserves serious consideration and attention. Because the air indoors often lacks proper filtration, indoor air quality is something homeowners should take seriously.
The EPA defines Indoor Air Quality as the quality of air inside a building or home and how it relates to the building or home’s occupants. Indoor Air Quality has a direct and sometimes negative effect on our health in addition to our overall mood, well-being, and energy levels.
Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?
Health officials say the air we breathe in our homes can be 2 to 5 times more toxic and polluted than the air outdoors, where nature has a way of taking care of it through a host of processes unbeknownst to the average person. When you take into consideration how tightly insulated most homes and workplaces are intentionally made in order to keep treated air inside, it becomes obvious why HVAC experts and health officials suggest some homeowners consider certain indoor air quality products to go in conjunction with their heat pump, furnace or air conditioner.
All too often household air pollution is unable to escape because modern dwellings are fairly airtight. In the confined spaces of a house or office building or work environment, pollutants can get trapped without adequate filtration or the circulation of outdoor air. Even with the HVAC system’s air filter, often these pollutants are merely recirculated. Sometimes, getting a humidifier, dehumidifier or air purifier makes a world of difference, in addition to UV Lights and other air filtration products.
