Air That’s Not Properly Humidified Has Serious Implications:
- Low relative humidity makes you more susceptible to catching a cold* and flu viruses have been linked to speedier progression and transmission in dry air.*
- The respiratory infections caused by cold and flu viruses are a leading trigger of asthma in children.
- Static shock and dry skin, itchy eyes, and a sore throat can all be traced back to air that’s not properly humidified.
Dry air can also cause structural damage to your home and possessions, the result of which can be costly. It can cause walls, woodwork and hardwood floors to crack. And those annoying static shocks? They can cause irreparable damage to your electronic equipment. There’s also the impact dry air has on your energy bill.
Dry air makes you feel colder at normal temperatures, causing you to overheat your home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, for every degree you heat your house, you add four percent to your energy bill.
Dry indoor air is more than just an inconvenience, it’s a threat to your family’s health, comfort, and budget. Thankfully, with Luedtke Tri-County Comfort, there’s something you can do to control it.
