With over three decades of experience in the HVAC industry, our experts at Allison Air Conditioning have resolved countless issues with indoor air quality, and one of the biggest factors that plays a role in the quality of your air is your home’s relative humidity (RH).
The Importance of Humidity
Humidity is a measure of how much moisture is in the air, and is often linked with heating. High levels of humidity can make you feel hot despite the temperature on a thermometer reading lower. Furthermore, high levels of humidity at high temperatures are a nightmare to endure, making it clear that keeping your RH levels under control greatly contributes to your home’s cooling efforts and comfort.
Our centralized HVAC products at Allison Air Conditioning are compatible with most humidifier and dehumidifier additions, allowing you to take control of your home’s humidity levels. Our experts recommend an RH level of 35 to 60%, depending on your preference. Keep in mind that low humidity leads to irritated eyes, flaky and itchy skin, dry hair and blocked sinuses, while high humidity can cause excessive sweating, clammy hands, and even overheating. That’s why finding the right balance of humidity in your home is so important.
Central humidifiers have a lot of advantages over their portable counterparts. Besides being able to service your whole home instead of just one room, these devices also often have much higher performance and energy efficiency ratings. In addition, they have fewer maintenance requirements compared to other types of humidifier systems. If you’re after a unit that will do its job and stay out of sight, then a centralized model is the perfect choice for your home. Ask our professionals about what type of humidifier system is best suited to your needs.
