Benefits of Having a Whole-House Humidifier

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

I’m not sure if you know this about me and my species, but we don’t sweat the same way you humans do. In fact, dogs in general have a different relationship to humidity, and much of it has to do with our fur and our smaller number of sweat glands.

But make no mistake, even though I’m a dog, I am well studied up on how the human body works when it comes to comfort. It’s my job, after all! This is why I’d like to talk to you about dry air and using a whole-house humidifier.

Signs That You Need a Whole-House Humidifier in Maryville, TN

Monday, April 20th, 2015

You know that you need a good air conditioner if you are going to live comfortably in your home this summer. You are also well aware that a dependable heater is necessary to keep your home warm and cozy throughout the winter months. In truth, though, there is more than just successful temperature maintenance to consider when it comes to your comfort. The quality of the air in your home is also important, and a lot of that quality hinges on the humidity level.

If your air is too dry in your Maryville, TN home, let MK Russell & Abbott install a whole-house humidifier.

Our team has put together some information to help you to determine if the humidity in your home is too low. If you suspect this is the case, please give us a call and our technicians will assess the situation.

One of the major signs that the air in your home is too dry is difficulty in effectively heating it. Dry air has a harder time holding heat. By bringing the level of humidity in your home up to where it should be, you can increase your comfort and heating efficiency at the same time.

Dry air can also really take a toll on your body. If, for example, you find that your skin is dried out, flaky and itchy, a lack of adequate humidity in the air may be to blame. You may also find that you have frequent sore throats, or even bloody noses. In any case, increasing humidity can help to resolve such health issues.

Finally, remember that dry air can also negatively affect your property. Wooden floorboards and furniture can dry out to the point of splitting and cracking, while paint on the walls may chip. Dry air can also lead to issues with pervasive static shocks, which are annoying and can damage sensitive electronics. When you let the professional humidifier technicians at MK Russell & Abbott install your humidifier, you can eliminate any such problems present in your home.
