Plainfield, IN Humidifier Installation
Humidifier Installation in Plainfield, IN
Indoor air quality impacts the health of many families during the winter months. Cold air holds less moisture than warm air, so winters in Plainfield, Indiana are especially dry. Indoor air can be even more affected as windows and doors are sealed throughout the winter months. Maintaining comfortable humidity levels is difficult during the winter. Air circulating through furnaces is already dry from outdoor conditions, and the heat exchange of gas furnaces exacerbate these issues. Thiele Heating and Air Conditioning installs humidifiers in Plainfield and the surrounding areas to restore and maintain ideal humidity levels within your home.Schedule Service
What Does a Humidifier Do?
The function of humidifiers is to increase the relative humidity of indoor air. The method is relatively simple. Humidifiers disperse water droplets into the air. Many people are familiar with tabletop and portable humidifiers that treat small areas and individual spaces. These devices use either ultrasonic or evaporative methods to add water droplets to the air. Ultrasonic humidifiers use vibrations to draw water droplets into the air. Evaporative humidifiers pass air over water, increasing humidity by evaporation. Most portable units include a fan to disperse the droplets throughout the space.
While small individual humidifiers may be effective in small areas, they treat only a certain area within your home. There are also potential maintenance requirements including filters, cleaning and risk of biological growth including mold and mildew.
Whole home humidifiers installed by Thiele treat all the air circulating throughout your home. These systems are very easy to maintain and more efficient than portable models. These humidifiers use a humidistat to measure the relative humidity of air within your furnace. Water droplets are added to the warm air as it moves through your ductwork, increasing the comfort throughout your home.Schedule Service
Benefits of a Humidifier
Indiana winters are extremely cold. Avoiding dry air outside of your home is nearly impossible. A whole home humidifier within your home combats some of the common complaints of Hoosiers in the winter.
Indoor Air Comfort
Many homeowners rightfully complain about the dry air blasting from their furnace. When relative humidity levels are higher, air feels warmer. Instead of increasing the settings on your thermostat, raising your utility bills and getting more dry air circulating through your home, consider installing a humidifier. Many homeowners find humidifiers allow them to reduce the temperature setting on your thermostat.
Chapped lips, dry eyes, itchy skin and irritated nostrils are all common symptoms of Plainfield winters. Central Indiana can wallop you with dry air, cold temperatures and steady winds for months. Dry air removes natural oils and moisture from your skin. When humidity levels are ideal, many of these symptoms improve.
Reducing inflammation of nasal tissues reduces allergy symptoms. Dry nose and throat issues are often a side effect of dry air. Humidifiers do not remove allergens but they help keep your body from drying out.
Congestion issues including snoring, dry throat and cough can disrupt your sleep. The issues are often exacerbated by dry air. Like a bedside humidifier, a whole home humidifier quietly circulates comfortable air as you sleep.
Humidifiers do not only improve your health and comfort. Wood fixtures and furniture in your home can be affected by dry air. One of the most aggravating side effects of dry indoor air is static electricity clinging to fabric and carpets. Regulating the humidity in your home creates a far more comfortable oasis from winter’s chill.Schedule Service
