Choosing Your Air Cleaner and/or Purifier

Monday, July 17th, 2017

woman-blowing-noseWhat do you think about when you think about living comfortably? Here in Vermont, your heater may be the first thing that springs to mind. We won’t talk about that too much right now, though — it may not be too summery around here, but let’s try and enjoy it before winter sneaks up on once again, okay? Your air conditioner is another likely answer to the question. However, you cannot afford to overlook the impact that your indoor air quality in Springfield, VT can have on your overall comfort, either.

Why Is Dry Air Such a Serious Concern?

Monday, January 30th, 2017

sitting-by-the-fireBecause Vermont winters can be so cold and snowy, some homeowners think only of their heating systems when it comes to living comfortably during the winter season. While your heater is obviously incredibly important to your overall comfort — and even to your safety — temperature control is not the only factor to consider. You should also keep the humidity level in your home in mind. Chances are that it is lower than it should be these days.

Cold air does not retain moisture the way that warm air does. Because of this, we start off with less humidity in the air during the winter months than we do when it is warm out. While your heater won’t actively dry out the air the way that your air conditioner can, you are already working at a deficit. Failure to add more moisture to the air as needed can have a number of negative consequences. This is why you may choose to use a whole-house humidifier in Ludlow, VT.
