Why Low Humidity Is a Problem

People welcome a "dry heat" during summer because low moisture levels make it easier for the body to cool off faster. But what happens when the weather is dry and cold? Nobody wants heat leaving their body faster when the temperature is low. It means running the heating system longer. Dry air also causes dry skin, itchy eyes and nose, static electricity, and damage to wood furnishings. It can also allow the rapid spread of illness because dried mucus and sinus membranes lower the body’s natural defense against flus and colds.

Combating Dry Air With Great HVAC Services

If you have a house that becomes uncomfortably dry, call the HVAC technicians at Russell & Abbott. Often, the reason for the problem is a poorly installed or malfunctioning furnace or air conditioner. We never take shortcuts when it comes to installation and service for ACs and furnaces, and you can trust our knowledgeable staff to see that you have a heater or AC that isn’t contributing to dry air in your house.
