Homeowners in Evansville are often faced with excess moisture problems in their property. Dampness and condensation issues are common and many are aware of the harmful effects of living with excess moisture in the home. A little less known are the effects that dry air can have on a house.
What’s the Problem with Dry Indoor Air?
Having low moisture levels in your home can cause skin irritations, sore throats and in extreme cases, even respiratory problems have resulted from excessively dry air. And it’s not just your health that’s at stake. Having your furnishings constantly exposed to a dry environment drains the moisture out of wooden furniture and floors causing warping and cracking and wall paper to peel.
Houses in the Evansville area that use gas heat furnaces and hot water heaters can often find dry air to be a recurring problem. Several pounds of water moisture can be absorbed through forced gas heat systems each day which makes for a very difficult environment to regulate.
Getting indoor humidity levels perfect can seem like a juggling act at times. You want to be warm and dry without pulling all the moisture out of the surrounding air. Opening windows and doors to match your indoor environment with the outdoors may seem like a good solution. However, Southern Indiana air quality is known to be poor during spring, summer and even early fall. For the majority of the year, ozone pollution and fine particulate pollution are problems in this area. It’s no surprise that achieving good in-home air quality can be challenging at times.
What Can I Do About Dry Indoor Air?
To achieve optimal levels of moisture in the home (usually 30%-60% relative humidity levels) the use of an indoor humidifier system is recommended. Unlike portable humidifiers that often require constant cleaning and maintenance and can only benefit one room, whole-home humidifier systems help improve the humidity levels of your entire house.
