At Design Aire, we’re committed to surrounding you with comfort in your home and business. We’re known for providing heating and cooling repair and maintenance for homes and businesses throughout the St. Louis area, but our service doesn’t end there. We also install whole-house humidifiers to keep your air from becoming uncomfortably dry.
Design Aire installs AprilAire whole-house humidifiers that not only keep you comfortable in the dry winter months but also help you and your family stay healthy, save on heating costs, and keep your wood floors from warping.
As the humidity outside drops in the St. Louis winter months, the air in your home also becomes very dry. Throughout the winter, your furnace often strips the air of moisture during the heating process, which can cause the air inside your home to feel exceedingly dry. A lack of moisture in the air can dry out your nasal passages, leading to irritation of the skin, eyes, nose, and mouth and may even exacerbate respiratory illnesses.
The best way to have a more comfortable home during the winter is to control your indoor humidity. By adding a whole-home humidifier to your HVAC system, you can easily control humidity levels in your home. You will have the ability to place the humidity to any level you choose without worrying about turning the system on and off.
A whole-house humidifier is much more effective, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing than portable humidifiers of the past. These permanent units work any time of year that you need them, and long-term, they can even save time and money. Say goodbye to the irritation and inconvenience of being uncomfortable in your own home. The experts at Design Aire can help you choose the right AprilAire whole-house humidifier for your home.
Dry skin, hair, lips, and nails can all result from dry air within your home. A whole-house humidifier can keep the air nice and moisturized, preventing the dry, flakiness that accompanies the cold winter months. It can also decrease flare-ups of eczema and acne.
Air that captures more moisture can maintain more heat. Increasing the amount of moisture in the air can help your home feel warmer at a lower temperature, which means less money spent on heating your home to feel comfortable.
Viruses and bacteria do not survive in moist air. A whole-home humidifier reduces the incidence and risk of respiratory infections from airborne viruses. With healthier humidity, your home will have effective protection from airborne viruses like the common cold, the flu, and COVID-19.
Asthma and allergies can be aggravated by cold, dry air. A whole-home humidifier helps to alleviate irritated sinuses and respiratory symptoms by pumping much-needed moisture into the air.
Since a whole-home humidifier helps clear your sinuses, moisturize your nasal passages, and improve your breathing, it can also help decrease snoring, leading to a full night of uninterrupted sleep.
If touching a doorknob sends a shock through your hand, or if rolling over in bed makes your hair stand on end, the air in your home is overly dry. Design Aire’s whole-house humidifiers keep static electricity from being electrifying.
It isn’t only humans who suffer from dry winter air. Our homes feel the effects, too. As the humidity changes, hardwood floors, cabinets, and other wood furnishings can become dry, warped, and cracked. Even wood window sills can shrink as they lose humidity, causing cold air to leak through the gaps. Installing a whole-home humidifier can help to save you from costly repairs and replacements.
A whole-house humidifier is installed as part of your heating system and is connected to your ductwork and to the home’s water supply.
There are several different types of whole-house humidifiers, including steam humidifiers, bypass humidifiers, and power humidifiers. Each works a little bit differently, and your Design Aire pro can help you choose the right one for your unique home.
In any case, the primary function of a humidifier is that, whether it works in conjunction with your furnace or has its own power source, warm air passes through mist or steam created inside the humidifier, then passes through ducts and into the rooms of your home. The result is that the humidity level throughout your house increases to a comfortable level.
Whole-house humidifiers are much more efficient than portable humidifiers because they work throughout your house, and not in single rooms. They add humidity evenly and keep moisture levels more comfortable throughout the entire home.
