As you probably know by now (especially in the last few weeks), the summer air here in Massachusetts can get pretty muggy. But as the cooler months arrive (and arrive they will), that humidity drops away – leaving behind over-dry air that, when trapped inside your home, can cause problems ranging from illness to property damage.

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to keep healthy levels of moisture in the air inside your home: invest in a whole house humidifier.

A whole house humidifier connects directly to your home heating and cooling system, where it adds the water vapor needed to humidify the air in your home to healthy levels. All you need to do is set the you humidity level you want through your humidifier-ready thermostat and you’ll be ready to experience the benefits of air properly humidified air, including:

  • Better health – Keeping indoor humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent year round is one of the best ways to manage asthma and other chronic respiratory issues, says the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
  • Lower bills – Because humid air feels warmer than dry air, you can drop your thermostat setting 4-5 degrees without sacrificing comfort; that would save you somewhere between 5 to 10 percent on your energy bills, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
  • Property protection – Dry air can crack wood floors, furniture, and even destroy artwork. You can avoid these problems by keeping air properly humidified.

The bottom line: Maintaining proper humidity is a key to keeping your family and your home healthy all year long, but especially in the cold, dry fall and winter months. With a whole house humidifier – professionally installed by the reliable pros at Cubby Oil & Energy – you will breath easier now and for many years to come.
