Humidifiers increase the humidity in the air in a safe, water vapor form to help make your home healthy and comfortable.
The whole-house system's greatest advantage is that it requires virtually no maintenance and keeps your entire home at a set humidity with just a one-time setup. Because it draws water from your plumbing system as it's needed, you never have to fill it or worry that it's not humidifying because it's run dry. It's integrated into the blower system on your furnace, drawing water directly from your water supply. It's virtually soundless, and initial cost is a fraction of what most portable units cost. In addition, most whole-house humidifiers literally cost pennies per year to operate.
Controlling humidity can also help you save money on energy bills. The heat our bodies feel is a combination of temperature and humidity. In other words, the more humid the air, the warmer you feel. If you add humidity to dry, heated air in the winter, you can set your thermostat lower and still be comfortable.
Humidifiers work with your home's heating and cooling system to maintain a proper, comfortable humidity level throughout the home. They will save you money by allowing you to turn down your thermostat a few degrees because humid air feels warmer.
