Whole house humidifiers are humidifiers that generate steam or a water mist, which releases the moisture into the entire house. If a humidifier is for the entire house, a whole-house in-line humidifier is installed within the house’s duct work.
There are several types of house humidifiers such as the flow-through house humidifier. Other house humidifiers are: drum whole house humidifiers, Wick-type house humidifiers, spray mist house humidifiers, steam house humidifiers and rotary disc furnace mount-house humidifier.
As you might guess, there are many benefits of a home humidifier such as better health. When the environment of a house is very dry, it can make everyone inside more susceptible to infection, which can increase the likelihood of your family catching colds, flu and other breathing concerns. Another benefit is the comfort that they offer. When the air in a home is very dry, it can aggravate allergy symptoms and lead to sore throats and itchy skin.
Most importantly, dry air can hinder many things in a home such as artwork, electronics, paint and plaster. However, when your house has the right amount of humidity, it can protect your home and everything inside from deteriorating. In addition, by installing a humidifier, your home will feel warmer.
