The air inside your home is drier than you think. The average North American home can be up to four times below recommended indoor relative humidity levels.

When the home heating season arrives, it can be accompanied by a variety of indoor problems caused specifically by low relative humidity in your home. The resulting dry air absorbs moisture from you and everything inside your home. Dry noses. Scratchy throats. Itchy skin. Static shock. All familiar ailments caused by dry air. But, this dry air causes more than discomfort. It can threaten your health and damage your home.

According to medical experts, many viruses thrive in low humidity and can increase the likelihood of getting colds, flu and upper respiratory ailments. The American Society of Otolaryngology reports that it is important to prevent an overly dry environment because it makes people more susceptible to infection.

But dry air damage doesn’t stop there. When heated air isn’t humidified, it causes walls and ceilings to crack. Wood floors and trim separate. Dry air shrinks the framing around doors sand windows, resulting in gaps that let in cold air from the outside, making your home less energy efficient. Expensive instruments and electronic equipment can fall victim to static electric charges, requiring pricey repairs or replacement.

To effectively minimize the threatening problems associated with dry air, it is essential to treat your home with a whole-home humidifier.

Protect your family and your home with whole-home humidification.

Properly humidified air can help prevent problems aggravated by dry air. Achieving proper levels requires the assistance of a humidifier. Normal household activities, such as cooking, washing clothes and showering, simply cannot provide enough moisture (or the right levels of moisture) in winter to keep your whole home comfortable for extended periods of time.

It’s essential to achieve a delicate balance between too little and too much moisture in your home. Too little moisture results in static shock, dry skin and damaged furnishings. Yet, too much indoor moisture will cause condensation on windows, potentially leading to structural damage.

Humidifiers can help you maintain a comfortable indoor relative humidity level. A professionally-installed, whole-home humidifier helps deliver appropriately-conditioned air to every room in your home, making it more effective than portable units that humidify just one room at a time. A humidifier can also promote energy savings by making the air around you feel warmer at lower temperatures.

Guardian Air

The main advantage …

Guardian Air does not need the pollutants to travel to the air handler for UV treatment or filtration. Guardian Air is proactive and sends ionized aggressive advanced oxidizers into the room to destroy the pollutants at the source, in the air and on surfaces, before they can reach your family, clients, or employees.
