Why Install a Whole-Home Humidification System? | Benefits & Solutions
August 3, 2018
If you are suffering from air that is too dry or too humid, a whole-home humidifier may be the best solution. While you are probably familiar with small, portable types of humidifiers and dehumidifiers, you may not be aware of all the extra benefits a whole-home humidification system offers.
The main problem with portable humidification equipment is that you don’t know when the proper humidity level has been reached. A common result is either over or under-humidifying the area, which can lead to all of the problems associated with dry or humid air.
The key to achieving the ideal indoor humidity levels is professional installation of a whole-home humidifier.
Effects of Dry Air
Too little moisture in the air can worsen colds and viruses, as well as cause chapped lips, dry skin, and property damage.
- Dry, itchy skin and hair
- Susceptibility to colds and infections
- Damage to wood products, such as floors, furniture, art, and instruments
- Static electricity
- Chipping paint
- Damage to electronics
Effects of Humid Air
Too much moisture in the air can cause mold and pest problems, which can worsen asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems.
- Mold growth
- Harmful bacteria and dust mites
- Muggy conditions
- Sleep discomfort
- Wood rot
- Pest problems
Ideal Humidity Levels
Low: under 30%
High: above 60%
While the ideal humidity level depends on your preferences, research shows that a relative indoor humidity level of 40-50% is best for health, comfort, and property protection.
In order to maintain healthy indoor humidity levels, you may need a whole-home humidification system. You should also consider whole-home ventilation solutions.

Whole-Home Humidification Solutions

Additionally, you’ll never have to worry about removing reservoirs of water since the whole-home system gets rid of the excess moisture through a drain pipe.
Regardless of what kind of heating and cooling system you have, as long as it is connected to ductwork, a whole-house humidification system can help you maintain the ideal humidity level. Just set your ideal humidity level and let the system monitor and control the indoor humidity for you.
