Invariably, as the outside temperature drops you will begin to use your home’s heating system. But did you know that winter heat, although essential, can rob your home of moisture?
Heating systems evaporate moisture and the resultant dry air tries to absorb moisture from wherever it can in your home. Often the result is flaky, itchy skin; dry noses, nosebleeds, sore throats and painful static shocks. Dry air can also aggravate allergies and asthma. Around your home you may notice chipping paint or plaster and split or cracked wood floors, furniture and trim.
Moisture-creating activities like showering, cooking and doing laundry are not sufficient to make up the shortfall. It’s no surprise that humidification in Alberta’s already dry climate is far more than a luxury.
Whole-home humidification systems installed by the professionals at Spark Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. deliver moisture everywhere air travels in your home. The humidifiers are built into your central heating and cooling system so you can enjoy the benefits of humidification simultaneously in every room of your home.
There is less daily upkeep than with portable units without the worry of over-humidification which can also have its drawbacks. The automatic controls of whole-home systems eliminate the guesswork, providing the air in your home with the ideal amount of moisture.
