Did you know that the air inside your home could be more polluted than the air outside? It’s easy to see smog when you step outside or commute to work, but the air quality inside your home takes more examination. Schneller & Knochelmann Plumbing, Heating & Air knows first hand how much the air in your home impacts your health and happiness, so today we’re introducing you to Aprilaire – one of our favorite tools to improve indoor air quality.
Humidity & Indoor Air Quality
The air inside your home can contain allergens and or contaminants that are hard to detect, which can keep your family from feeling their best. Furthermore, too much or too little humidity in your home can aggravate existing problems like colds and allergies, while making your home an uncomfortable place to be.
Poor indoor air quality can cause damage to your decor, personal belongings and, most importantly, you and your family’s health. That’s why Aprilaire provides products with total comfort in mind for you and your home. Aprilaire produces top notch humidifiers to improve your home’s indoor air quality. Many people relate humidity with horribly hot, muggy days in summer. However, humidity plays a large role in the home. Lack of humidity causes:
- Dry, itchy skin
- Weakened immune system, leading to illness
- Heightened reaction to airborne allergens and asthma
- Damage to wood surfaces and furniture, including floors and door frames
Save on Heating Costs
A lack of humidity in the colder months can also cause an increase in your heating bills. Humid air feels warmer, because the moisture in the air holds onto heat. In the summer, that results in sticky, hot days, but it can mean big savings when used appropriately during the winter. Optimizing the humidity levels in your home by using a humidifier will maximize energy efficiency, which in turn maximizes savings. Consider installing a whole-home humidifier to help monitor humidity levels and maintain the health and efficiency of your home.
Thanks to 50 years of experience, Aprilaire understands how to take care of your home, so they create products that are user-friendly, like auto-detecting thermostats that take out the guess-work. Aprilaire has also designed an app that allows you to control your humidity levels anywhere, anytime using your mobile phone.
