Benefits of Humidifiers
Indoor humidity level should be kept between 30 and 50 percent year-round. In the winter, the air is naturally dryer, which can make humidity levels fall. Installing a humidifier will allow you to manage indoor humidity levels effectively while providing many health and comfort benefits.
Humidifiers can help you in the following ways:
Help you stay healthy
Colds and viruses, like the flu, are commonly passed around during winter months. Many types of bacteria and viruses thrive in dry air environments, putting your family at risk if your home’s air is too dry. A humidifier keeps humidity levels balanced, reducing this risk. Should you happen to catch a cold, a humidifier can provide relief from symptoms such as dry throat, nasal irritations, itchy eyes, and other symptoms which can be worsened by dry air.
Provide relief from allergies
If you or a loved one is affected by allergies, a humidifier can help relieve symptoms. By keeping the humidity levels in your home properly balanced, allergens in your air can actually be reduced, which limits your exposure to common irritants.
Provide relief from dry skin
Dry skin is a common complaint during dry winter months. This is because there is less humidity in the home, due to natural dryness as well as dryness caused as your furnace heats air for your home. Using a humidifier will add moisture back into your air, providing dry skin relief as well as improvement of eczema.
Improve heating efficiency
Moist air actually helps you feel warmer. Using a humidifier during the winter months can help you feel warmer without cranking up the heat. You’ll be able to turn your thermostat down and save some money on your heating bills if you keep you humidity levels in balance.
Protection for wood elements
There is a great deal of wood used throughout the home, in building products and in furnishings. When air is too dry, wood can dry out, causing it to split and crack. With a humidifier in use, your home’s expensive and sensitive wood elements will be protected from the damaging effects of dry air.
Benefits of Dehumidifiers
The air inside your home can become too humid due to naturally-occurring weather conditions, or moisture control issues, such as poor ventilation in bathrooms. Too much humidity in the home can cause a long list of problems, including damage to your home and health issues. Installing a dehumidifier will keep humidity levels in check, offering these benefits and more:
Prevents mold growth
Mold and mildew thrive in moist environments. If the humidity levels in your home are too high, your home becomes an ideal environment for their growth. Mold can damage your home’s structure and cause serious health problems; it is important to take action to control humidity levels in order to avoid mold growth in the home. By installing a dehumidifier, you can keep indoor humidity levels within the appropriate range of 30 to 50 percent all year long, to keep mold growth at bay.
As with mold, moist environments can create an ideal home for many allergens. High moisture levels increase the prevalence of dust mites, pollen, dander, and other common allergens. With a higher concentration of allergens in your home, your symptoms are more likely to be triggered, and occur more often. Dehumidifiers control moisture levels to control indoor allergen levels, providing you with relief from bothersome symptoms such as congestion, rashes, sneezing, watery eyes, and more.
If your home has ever had a musty smell, that’s a tell-tale sign of a moisture problem. This odor is created by mold and mildew, which thrives in moist environments. Your dehumidifier will keep moisture levels in the appropriate range, eliminating this odor.
Improves cooling efficiency
When humidity levels in the home are excessive, the air conditioning system has to provide both cooling and dehumidification to keep your home comfortable. By doing so, the system uses more energy, which costs more and places more stress on your system. Using a dehumidifier is a much more efficient approach to home dehumidification, and will work with your cooling system to keep your home comfortable throughout the summer.
Benefits of Media Air Cleaners
When you think of pollution, most of us only consider outdoor air. Did you know that the air inside your home can be as much as 100 times more polluted than the air outside? Most Americans spend about 90 percent of the day indoors, whether it be at home or work, meaning most of us are exposed to high concentrations of pollutants regularly. It is crucial that you have a strong air cleaning system in place to improve your indoor air quality.
Media air cleaners remove pollutants from the air inside your home. They clean the air, limiting your exposure to dangerous pollutants. Using media air cleaners in your home, or business, can provide these benefits and more:
Media air cleaners are far more efficient than standard furnace filters, with the ability to effectively remove pollutants much smaller in size. Mold spores, viruses, germs, bacteria, and other pathogens may exist in your home’s air supply; a media air cleaner removes them to limit your family’s exposure and improve your health.
Reduced allergy symptoms
With their superior air cleaning power, a media air cleaner can capture and remove more allergens from inside your home. They effectively remove common allergy triggers such as pollen, dander, smoke, dust mites, mold, and more. Fewer allergens equals fewer allergy triggers and symptoms, helping you control your allergies and feel comfortable at home.
A healthier family
Media air cleaners can also reduce the amount of bacteria and viruses in your home’s air supply. Removing these pathogens will limit your family’s exposure so you can maintain good health.
A more efficient HVAC system
Contaminants circulating through your home can build up in your heating and cooling equipment and limit air flow, which causes your HVAC systems to lose operating efficiency. Media air cleaners remove these contaminants so your HVAC equipment will operate at higher efficiency levels.
A cleaner house
Dirt, dust, and other debris are commonly found in the home. As air circulates through the home, these particles can get picked up and moved around, setting in other areas. Media air cleaners remove these particles, preventing them from traveling back into your living areas, keeping them cleaner.
Benefits of Ultra Violet Air Purifiers
Air cleaning is extremely important for Cincinnati homes, as the air indoors has a much higher concentration of pollutants without the natural ventilation that occurs outside. Ultraviolet air cleaners use UV energy to kill contaminants and prevent regrowth inside the home, the same way the Sun controls pollutants outdoors. Installing an ultraviolet air cleaner can provide you with the following benefits:
Mold growth can occur within your HVAC system, as the damp environment makes an ideal host. Mold from within the system can circulate into your home, exposing your family to this harmful substance. Ultraviolet air cleaners neutralize mold spores and prevents regrowth, and will also kill other mold spores circulating inside the system.
Disinfects your air
Ultraviolet air cleaners provide effective treatment for contaminants that flow through your heating and cooling system. The ultraviolet light will neutralize harmful contaminants such as bacteria, mold, germs, dust mites, and more. As air continually passes through the system, it receives repeated treatment by the ultraviolet air cleaner for consistent disinfection.
Many common household products and contaminants can produce unpleasant odors. Ultraviolet air cleaners neutralize these particles, preventing odors. Ultraviolet air cleaners work 24/7 to keep your home smelling fresh.
By eliminating harmful contaminants from your air supply, your exposure to viruses, bacteria, germs, and more will be severely limited. Common allergens are also neutralizes, limiting your exposure to allergy triggers inside the home.
Increased HVAC efficiency
Ultraviolet air cleaners help your HVAC system components stay cleaner by preventing mold and mildew growth on cooling coils, as well as the buildup of contaminants within the system. Buildup on the cooling coils limits the available surface area, needed for heat exchange, so your system has to work harder provide the right amount of cooling for your home. Installing an ultraviolet air cleaner will keep your heating and cooling system cleaner and operating more efficiently.
