Humidification—the process of adding moisture to the air—is one of the most important aspects of total indoor comfort, yet it’s one of the least understood.
Maybe this is because people associate humidity with the discomfort of hot, steamy summer days. And it’s true that too much humidity causes problems. Yet when properly controlled, humidity offers many proven benefits to your health, home and comfort.
Humidity is an essential element in the indoor comfort equation, from state-of-the-art whole house steam humidifiers to economical and efficient bypass humidifiers. It not only relieves you of symptoms such as static electricity, nasal dryness and loose joints on furniture and wood floors but can also reduce your energy bills by allowing you to turn down your thermostat to maintain the same comfort level. 70 degree temperature at 40% relative humidity can be more comfortable then 72 degree air at 20% relative humidity.
