There's a science to managing comfort in your home. Just locating and eliminating air leaks can cut energy bills up to 30%.
Besides lowering your utility bills, humidity control is very important to your health for a couple of reasons. Mold, which thrives in high humidity, is dormant or dies when the humidity is low. Dust mites also die when the humidity stays below 50%.
On the other hand, below 30% relative humidity, people can be uncomfortable and can suffer from dry mucus membranes which can lead to nosebleeds and infections. Low humidity can aggravate the symptoms of asthma and high humidity at high temperatures can sometimes lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
Controlling your indoor humidity is very important. In many cases, the air inside your home can be drier than a desert. Dry, indoor air is often the culprit for such common problems as itchy or cracked skin, eye irritation, dry nasal passages and damaged home furnishings. Dry indoor air can also increase the possibility of catching cold and flu viruses and can reduce the efficiency and effectiveness of your heating system.
Maintaining ideal humidity in your home can be the key to relief from dry nasal passages, static electricity, and dry, itchy skin. Proper humidity control is also important for minimizing the growth of bacteria, molds, viruses and dust mites. We have the solution for dry indoor air.
At S&J Jamrog, we offer whole-house steam humidifiers, each designed to enhance your comfort by adding moisture to dry, indoor air. As warm, dry air passes through the humidifier pad, moisture is absorbed into the air and distributed throughout your home for a more comfortable indoor environment.
During the winter months, a properly operating humidification system can save you money! For example, 68* F at 40% humidity feels just as warm as 74* F at 20% relative humidity. Hence, you turn down your thermostat and save 5% on your annual heating bill.
