Whole House Humidifiers
Protect You Family and Your Home from the Unhealthy Effects of Over-Dry Air
Dry nose, cracked, itchy skin, and sore throats. Aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms. Painful static shocks. Chipping paint and plaster. Splitting or cracked wood floors, furniture, trim, and molding.
Sound familiar? Why go through another season with these problems when there is a solution-an Aprilaire® Whole-Home Humidifier.
Turning your temperature up in the wintertime will keep you warm, but won't increase your home's humidity level. Daily activities such as showering, cooking, and doing laundry don't produce enough moisture to keep your home's air from becoming too dry.
According to medical experts, many viruses thrive in low humidity, thus increasing the likelihood of catching colds, flu, and upper respiratory ailments. The American Society of Otolaryngology even reports that it is important to prevent an overly dry environment because it makes people more susceptible to infection.
A Whole-Home Humidifier from Aprilaire—installed by Four Seasons Heating and Cooling—will deliver the perfect amount of moisture to your air, making you feel more comfortable at lower thermostat settings. In fact, the EPA states that you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat! Increase your family's level of comfort and protect your valuable furnishings by adding just the right amount of moisture with an Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier.
How Does It Work?
An Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifier is installed directly to your new central or existing heating and cooling system. Humidity is introduced into your home's air in the form of water vapor, which prevents minerals from entering the air in your home and potentially in your lungs.
Water is supplied to the distribution tray, allowing it to flow evenly across the Aprilaire Water Panel®. The resulting humidified air is then distributed via the ductwork throughout your home.
Why Aprilaire Whole Home Humidifiers?
Aprilaire Whole-House Humidifiers were introduced in 1954 as the first evaporative, flow-through design humidifiers. That's right-Aprilaire invented the very first, truly effective, whole-home humidifier. Since then, Aprilaire humidifiers have been imitated, but never duplicated, and continue to lead the way in whole-house humidification systems.
Whole Home Humidification Versus Portable
Too much humidity can be as much of a problem as too little humidity. Unlike portable units the Aprilaire Whole-Home Humidifier continually monitors relative humidity levels in your home, and then works to deliver the right amount of moisture—never too much or too little—to your entire house. Aprilaire humidifiers don't require the daily cleaning and disinfecting that many portable units require, and you never need to worry about the risk of microbial organism growth due to standing water.
