During the winter months, you likely turn on your home heating system to stay warm. While this brings your home’s temperature to a comfortable level, it also decreases the air humidity level to an uncomfortable one. You may experience dry, itchy skin, throat and nasal passages. Home humidifiers might help to alleviate some of these wintertime symptoms and save you money on heating utility costs. At McQuerry’s 24-Hour Heating, your St. Louis, MO heating authorities, we specialize in all things heating and air and would be happy to help you with your humidifier needs.
Heating systems have a tendency to remove moisture from the air, which can cause health implications. Dry air in your home can lead to skin issues and can aggravate eczema. The lack of moisture in the air can also irritate and dry out your throat and nasal passages, making you more susceptible to contract sicknesses like a cold or the flu. Home humidifiers can raise moisture levels in your home so that you and your family feel comfortable and stay healthy.
A home humidifier can also help reduce your utility bill. While using a humidifier, you can comfortably adjust your thermostat to a lower temperature (which reduces the usage of your heating system). This is possible because the added moisture in the air makes the air feel warmer.
Home humidifiers can make wintertime more comfortable on your health and your wallet. Contact us, McQuerry’s 24-Hour Heating, at 636-225-0087 today to learn more about how humidifiers can help you this winter.
