What is a Humidifier?

Humidifiers are appliances that add moisture to the air in a dwelling to keep the air from drying out. Humidifiers can be for single rooms, or small areas, or for entire homes or buildings. Whole-home humidifiers work with existing HVAC equipment to add humidified air to outgoing air before it goes into throughout the ductwork and into the home. They can also work independently of your HVAC equipment to maintain humidity levels even when the furnace or air handler isn’t in use as a stand alone product.

    Types of Humidifiers

    If your home is too dry, you should consider investing in a humidifier to add moisture to the air. Eastland Heating & Cooling offers a line of humidifiers to help you optimize your home heating system in the winter and relieve dry air and low humidity issues such as wood damage, chapped lips, dry skin, flu symptoms, and allergy and asthma flare-ups. Below are the different types of humidifiers available:

    Central Humidifier

    Central or whole-home humidification units are installed directly into a homeowners HVAC system and work effectively to humidify the dwelling evenly throughout. 

    Impeller Humidifier

    These are also called a “cool mist humidifier.” They utilize a rotating disc that emits water through a diffuser. This breaks larger droplets up into a fine mist. They are considered a child-friendly option, and require minimal energy to humidify a larger area. The downside is that they can be noisy and a home for bacteria, which tends to gather around the filter. 

    Evaporator Humidifier

    These single units add moisture to the room it is placed in. Similar to how a boiling pot of water evaporates and sends moisture to the air, an evaporator humidifier works the same way. 

    Ultrasonic Humidifier

    This is a single unit that puts moisture in the air with the use of high-frequency sound vibrations. These vibrations produce an extra fine water mist. 

    Steam Vaporizers

    These portable units can be found at your area drugstore or online but keep in mind, they are known to cause burns. Be careful using them if you have pets or small children. 

    Benefits of Humidifier Installation

    Reduce the risk of illness

    Bacteria and viruses can’t travel as well in moist air. It is possible that using a humidifier might prevent you from catching a bug during the cold season. In any case, dry air can cause a host of health-related problems. 

    Comfortable sinuses

    Have you ever woken up with a dry nose that felt stiff during the winter? Even if you don’t have a cold, winter air dries out the sinuses and lowers one’s immunity to airborne and other bacteria.  More moisture in the air means more comfortable sinuses. 

    Prevents morning sore throat

    Because overly dry air affects your vocal cords, it can leave you with a dry, scratchy throat in the morning. Keeping the air moist and maintaining humidity levels during the winter helps provide relief to your vocal cords, especially while you sleep.

    Reduces heating bills

    Throughout the summer months here in Central Ohio, the humidity the air , the warmer it often feels. This is because the excess moisture in the air makes it feel warmer.  By adding some moisture to the air in your home during these months, you’ll end up saving on your heating bills.

    General Humidifier FAQ

    What is the ideal level of humidity to maintain?

    Homeowners should be maintaining a relative level of humidity of between 30% and 50%. Some even say it’s best to keep it between 40% and 50%. Humidity levels above 50% create a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, dust mites and other pests. Humidity levels below 30% increase the risk of flu and cold viruses. It can also cause other uncomfortable respiratory issues.

    How much upkeep do humidifiers require?

    If you want a humidifier that will require the minimal maintenance to sustain optimal levels of humidity in your home, you definitely should consider a whole-house humidifier. Portable humidifiers, however, often require a lot more maintenance that includes cleaning it and regularly filling the reservoir.

    What size humidifier should I install?

    The size of humidifier you should install depends on the overall square footage area you want to humidify. Most manufacturers display the square footage coverage area on their product’s with other specifications. If you’re looking for humidity control for the entire dwelling to protect your woodwork and create a more comfortable indoor environment that costs less overall to heat, give us a call.
