Humidifiers Knowledge For Central Oregon

Central Oregon is one of the most difficult places to live to have humidifiers function correctly and long-term. In a high dry cold climate, such as in Central Oregon, humidifiers are often used in homes to reduce the physical discomforts of dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. Humidifiers also add moisture to the dry air to alleviate common nuisances caused by winter heating, such as static electricity, peeling wallpaper, and cracks in paint, floors and furniture. That being said, we wanted to layout a few benefits of having proper humidification in your home and some problems with improper installments of different HVAC systems such as heat pumps, ductless heat pumps, air conditioning units and more.

Skin & Respiratory Benefits:

  • Skin: Humidification is truly nurturing for our skin in dry weather. Having any type of heat output in a dry climate with a humidifier makes the temperature out of your furnace feel warmer, thus, adding more moisture to excessively dry skin, scratchy throats, chapped lip and dry eyes. This has an energy benefit and a lot of people end up lowering their thermostat, thus saving energy simply because it feels warmer at a lower temperature. This also creates a benefit for our health system.
  • Respiratory: Humidifiers are an essential part for comfort and physical well-being. Many people with allergies and asthma and other respiratory diseases have a difficult time breathing (and sleeping) in an environment free from adequate moisture. The aid of proper humidification helps to shift back the moisture balance to an ideal level for added comfort and health. By installing a humidifier for home, you can keep control of the moisture in the air and easily maintain a comfortable humidity level.

The Need for AC Repair or Service Before Summer
