Humidifiers

Humidifiers

A humidifier will help ensure that your home and living environment has just the right amount of humidity for the ultimate protection and comfort. Our humidifiers protect your family and your home from unhealthy and damaging dry air. Some effects of dry air are, dry nose, dry itchy skin, static shock, cracked wood floors, furniture or wood trim or more severe allergy and asthma symptoms. These can all be avoided with the proper installation of a humidifier.

Steam Humidifier

A Steam humidifier is the most pure and natural form of residential humidification that can be produced for whole home comfort. In the Old Days, we used to put a pot of water on the stove and boil it, or put an open container of water next to the radiator heat source. Today's humidification has been made efficient and automatic.

Water vapor, or steam, that is produced from steam humidifiers is entered directly into your air source from the unit. 100% of the steam produced is used to humidify your home. These units do not waste any of the energy needed to create a comfortable living environment. Steam is the fastest and most efficient method of increasing and maintaining an acceptable, comfortable level of humidity in any home.

Most homes today maintain an average humidity level of below 15% relative humidity. In comparison, the Sahara desert has an Rh level of 10%. Steam humidifiers will maintain a level of 55% relative humidity in any home or dwelling. The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers better know as ASHRAE recommends all homes maintain a level of humidity between 40% and 60% relative humidity. Only a steam humidifier can maintain these acceptable levels.
