Vermont Winter Tip: Outfit Your Home with a Whole-House Humidifier

It’s been a hot summer, and last winter certainly was fairly mild. We Vermonters know that you can never afford to underestimate what winter may send our way, though. That is why we’ve recommended that you get your heating replacement and/or maintenance out of the way now, before you really need to put your heater into rotation. We also advise you to keep your indoor air quality in mind during the colder time of the year, though.

One issue that homeowners grapple with during the winter season is very dry air. While your AC may dry out the air in the summer, the air itself is actually quite dry in the winter. That is why you may want to equip your home with a whole-house humidifier in Woodstock, VT.

What Are the Benefits of Using a Humidifier? Why Choose a Whole-House Model?

If you surround yourself with excessively dry air in your home, you have to expect that that dryness is going to have an impact on your body. Your skin will start to get dry, itchy, and flaky. Combine that with the cold of winter, and you’ll start to see your skin splitting and cracking. It’s a painful experience, and once the process starts, it can be tough to reverse.

Your health may also be compromised, as your throat and nasal passages dry out. This can result in seriously sore throats, frequent bloody noses, and an increased risk of illness. Of course, your body is not the only thing that will suffer.

Wooden fixtures and floorboards in your home may also dry out to the point of splitting, causing property damage. Paint may chip away from your walls, and static electric shocks will go more frequent, putting sensitive electronics at risk.

With a whole-house humidifier, you can resolve these problems in a very effective and incredibly convenient way. You won’t have to move a humidifier around the house, nor will you find yourself filling up water tanks over and over. Just remember that a professional must integrate your humidifier into your HVAC system, which is why you should work with us.
