Do I Need A Furnace Humidifier

Furnace Humidifiers

A Furnace Humidifier should be a required component of your heading system.  A  humidifier installed directly into your cooling and
heating system will introduces humidity in the form of water vapor into the air that travels through heating ducts. The level of humidity
is then monitored and controlled by your thermostat, just like the temperature is, and an even level of moisture can be released into your
house all year long.

The Advantages of  a Furnace Humidifier Include:

  • Reduced static electricity
  • No more dried out nasal passages

  • Fewer respiratory-related problems
  • Financial benefits (reduced heating costs)
  • Houseplants survive longer
  • Hardwood floors crack less
