Optimize Moisture with Humidifiers or Dehumidifiers
Yes, those two machines do exactly the opposite of one another. Why would I install one over the other? For home comfort, it is highly suggested to have humidity levels between 35% and 50%. Too much humidity can cause germs, microbes, condensation and even wood damage. Inefficient humidity can cause itchy skin, sinus sickness and sore throats. Depending on the conditions where you live, you probably have too much or too little humidity.
Humidifiers add the ideal amount of moisture to your home, helping with sickness, itchy skin, and warped wood furniture. Dehumidifiers remove moisture from your space, helping to stop organism growth, and improving indoor comfort considerably.
With the challenge to become more energy-efficient, homes are often sealed stronger and insulated carefully & thoroughly to make sure air is not escaping while our HVAC systems work to keep our home comfortable. Energy-efficiency is a great thing, but it also means a reduced amount of airflow, less circulation, and decreased movement. This can cause the air to become stale and contaminants (indoor air pollution) are stuck inside your home’s air – the air you and your family breathe. An air ventilation system detects indoor and outdoor temperatures and humidity and constantly bringing in air replacement. This can add 5% to 10% more fresh air every 60 minutes, decreasing the concentration of airborne contaminants.
