When you run your furnace in the winter and seal all the windows, low humidity levels inside your Savannah or Hilton Head area home start to wreak havoc on your health and your furniture.
Dry air dries out your nasal passages, creating a stuffy nose and flaring up your allergies. It can also warp your wood furniture and floorboards—and once that happens, the damage is irreversible.
Fortunately, we have a solution for you: a whole-house humidifier.
These energy-efficient systems attach to your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system and are easy to operate. They add moisture to the air to properly adjust the humidity levels in your home, improving the indoor air quality and your well-being.
At Old Coast Heating & Air Conditioning, you will find a quality selection of whole-house humidifiers, along with other air quality systems designed to bring you total comfort. Our team has been serving Savannah, Hilton Head, and the surrounding area since 2012. We value your business and work hard to keep it.
The Danger of Low Humidity Levels
The ideal indoor humidity range is between 30 and 50 percent. You can purchase a hygrometer to measure the humidity level in your home or you can try this simple test: fill a glass with water and add some ice cubes. If there is no condensation on the outside of the glass after three minutes or so, you likely have low humidity in your home.
Your biggest risk with low humidity levels is picking up a virus. Dry air is a natural breeding ground for the flu bug. Along with a stuffy nose, dry nasal passages can lead to scratchy throats and the likelihood of catching a cold.
If dry air is bad for your health, it’s also bad for your furniture. Dry air can warp and split your wood furniture and floorboards. Over time, it can even compromise your home’s wooden support structures. It can also dry out caulk or glue, creating gaps around your doors and windows. A drafty home is harder to heat in the winter, leading to higher utility bills.
