Whole-Home Humidifiers

Your air may be at the perfect temperature. But without the proper humidity levels, it's not as comfortable as it could be. During winter months, the air in your home will lose most of its moisture. Dry air can lead to bothersome static electricity, and over time it can damage plants, furniture and valuables. It can also dry out your skin, aggravating asthma and trigger allergy attacks.

Using an Aprilaire or Trane Whole-Home Humidifier is one of the most effective ways to add the proper amount of humidity to your indoor air and prevent the problems caused by dry air. Installed directly to your home's central heating and cooling system, a whole-home humidifier provides whole-home comfort - unlike portable units that only address certain rooms.

Low humidity can cause home damage. It causes walls, woodwork, and your beautiful hardwood floors to crack. Electronics can fall victim to static electric charges, requiring expensive repair or replacement.

Low humidity can make you feel too cold at normal temperatures leading you to turn up the thermostat. This leads to higher energy bills. Maintenance of our humidifiers is easy and infrequent, requiring attention just once or twice a year. Compare that to portable humidifiers that require you to monitor levels in messy tanks.

Physicians and other experts often recommend humidity control to prevent the damaging effects of dry air caused by low relative humidity.

Low humidity can increase your likelihood of getting colds, flu and other upper respiratory ailments. Viruses that cause colds and flu thrive in low humidity. And, according to The American Society of Otolaryngology, dry air can make people more susceptible to infection. In addition, drier air can aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms.

Beyond the damage low humidity causes, it makes you uncomfortable. It can cause:

  • Bloody noses
  • Dry mouth and dry, itchy eyes
  • Sore throats
  • Cracked, itchy skin
  • Painful static shocks
