Do you feel that heating your Phoenix area home or business compromises the indoor air quality in every winter? While there are many effects on the air quality inside your home or office throughout the winter, you can remedy these issues with a few tips and indoor air quality system choices. The indoor air quality experts at Norris Air Inc. are here to help with a few of these tips and ways to alleviate these issues.
It’s important to know which symptoms are most troublesome to you. Here are a few potential effects of dry air inside the home or office:
- Dry skin
- Sinus issues
- Respiratory problems
- Damage to furnishings
Installing a whole-house humidifier is one way to prevent air that gets dried out by the heat in the winter. While you may not be ready to invest in one of these systems, it will pay off in the long run, especially compared to room humidifiers. A humidifier attached to your heating system maintains proper moisture control throughout your home or office building. Proper moisture control is important for several reasons. First, it helps to prevent mold growth, but it also prevents excess wear and tear on your heater due to the dry air feeling colder.
Installing a room humidifier will not provide the correct amount of moisture to the air. The other advantage to a whole-home humidifier is that it can also be plumbed directly into your plumbing system so that you don’t have to worry about constantly refilling a tank.
