A home humidifier relieves symptoms such as seasonal allergies, respiratory problems, and simple dry skin. There are 3 types of humidifiers that you can easily use in your home to help air quality.
Whole House Humidifiers
Whole house humidifiers connect directly to your HVAC system and should be installed by a reputable HVAC company. With a whole house humidifier each room of your home will have comfortable, moist, breathable air. These units are permanent and consistent, but also the most expensive option. They operate through your air system, so you they are low maintenance and you don’t have to refill the water. We proudly install Carrier whole house humidifiers.
Cool Mist Humidifiers
Cool mist humidifiers trap minerals, dust, and impurities in the air. These units provide a cool invisible mist to moisten the air. Generally, these humidifiers are easy to clean and work best in larger areas of the home, like the great room or another large open, central space. Cool mist humidifiers can be noisy so you won’t want it near places of entertainment, like near the T.V. Many people just turn them on when they aren’t home or at night to avoid hearing it.
Portable humidifiers are the most affordable option and are usually used in a bedroom for the person that is needing the relief the most. They are less effective than the other options and require daily refilling, but they don’t cost very much. They are designed mainly for people who just need a temporary boost in humidity.
