Why You Need a Whole House Humidifier Install
One of the important health benefits of utilizing a humidifier is that it greatly increases the quality of air you breathe in. It accomplishes this by filtering the air with a healthy balance of moisture. The increase of air quality that you will breath is highly noticeable and will benefit you, children and pets alike. Especially individuals prone to nose bleed, dry respiratory and asthmatic symptoms.
Bacteria and viruses thrive in dry environments. Installing a whole home humidifier can help avoid sickness such as cold, flu, cough, hay fever symptoms, as well as helping to keep the lungs more elastic by providing a healthy balance of moist air. It will also turn down the susceptibility to infection by keeping the mucus membranes of the nasal passages and the throat moist, which blocks particles and bacteria from going through.
During our cold winters in Northern Illinois, it’s not uncommon to experience symptoms such as dry skin, itchy skin, scaly skin and dry lips. Many homes also experience an electrostatic charge (getting shocked) while touching metallic items or other people. Installing a whole home humidifier in your home will alleviate these common issues.

A steam or mist humidifier is often the most effective solution. A steam humidifier does just what it sounds like. It actually produces a steam that is released into your home instead of relying on evaporation.
Steam humidifiers can supply some of the largest homes; up to 6,200 square feet. You also have free control to adjust your humidity levels. Steam is produced from cold water which may be hard, soft or softened.
If you currently utilize a furnace to heat your home, a bypass humidifier is one of your options. This can be installed on the air supply going to or coming from your furnace. Either method would produce the same effectiveness without any negative effect on your current equipment.
The air passing through your plenum or duct will absorb the water vapor produced by this bypass. It will then “bypass” your furnace to distribute the moisture back into the air.
A fan powered humidifier is a great option if you do not have existing duct work or do not care to use the existing duct work. This standalone unit does not need to pull any air from the furnace. Instead, it utilizes a fan to push moisturized air back into your home. These units can push more moisture than a bypass humidifier and can cover up to 4,200 square feet.
