Humidifier Installation Services in Lehi & Orem, UT

Does your home’s air feel drier than it should? Does spending longer periods of time inside leave you feeling itchy and uncomfortable? Does your throat, nose or skin feel dry all of the time? If any of these apply to you, you may be experiencing an indoor air quality issue.

Indoor air quality is commonly assumed to only be related to pollutants in your indoor air, but it can also relate to your home’s humidity level. When your home’s humidity levels are too low or too high, your furniture and your health can be affected adversely. At Western Heating & Air, we understand the importance of keeping your home’s humidity at an optimal level. We offer whole home humidifier installations to help you get your home’s humidity under control.

Understanding Your Home’s Humidity Problem

When it comes to your home’s humidity levels, there is such a thing as too much humidity and too little humidity. Finding the balance between high and low humidity is the key to keeping your home’s climate comfortable and healthy. In Utah, homeowners will generally experience issues with low humidity levels inside their home due to our dry climate. As dry outdoor air comes into your home, you may begin to have issues with low humidity. Low humidity levels in your home can also come from heating or cooling your home for long periods of time, since your HVAC system can pull moisture out of your air.

Signs You Need A Whole Home Humidifier

Low humidity levels can take a toll on your home and your health. You should consider getting a whole house humidifier when you begin to notice the following issues:

  • Your throat, nose, eyes and skin are dry.
  • You develop frequent sinus infections.
  • Your home’s wooden features are brittle or cracked.
  • You notice static electricity when you touch your hair or bed sheets.

If you already have an existing respiratory condition, dry indoor air can exacerbate your symptoms further and make it uncomfortable to spend time in your home. A whole house humidifier can add a healthy amount of moisture into your home’s air to ease your symptoms.

Benefits of Getting a Whole Home Humidifier

Purchasing a whole home humidifier is not only good for your health, it is also good for the wooden features in your home. When your home’s humidity levels are at an optimal level, you will have fewer allergy symptoms and get sick less often since viruses typically thrive in drier air. A whole home humidifier can also help you sleep better since your sleep will not be interrupted by discomfort, coughing or snoring. Additionally, a humidifier helps promote healthier skin by preventing your skin from drying out.

The Perfect Humidity Level for Your Home

When you get a whole house humidifier installed in your home, it is important to know what humidity level you should have it maintain. The ideal humidity level for your home is usually around 30% – 50% relative humidity. Relative humidity is in relation to the temperature within your home, since that can fluctuate. Absolute humidity refers to an amount of water vapor, no matter what the temperature of the air is.
