Ultra-fine airborne particles are actually the most harmful to your health and represent 90% of the air pollution we breathe. Many of us are affected by allergies or asthma problems which can be exasperated by the harmful contaminants found inside our homes and workplaces such as dust mites, mold spores, pollen, and pet dander. A quality air purifier can help to significantly reduce many of these harmful contaminants and remove airborne particles, giving you the ability to breathe easily.
WHOLE-HOME HUMIDIFIER Automatically deliver the perfect amount of moisture to your home.
Installed directly to your home's central heating and cooling system, a whole-home humidifier provides whole-home comfort-unlike portable units that only address certain rooms. Additionally, humidity offers many proven benefits to your health, home, comfort and your pocketbook. The trained staff here at Franklin Heating and Refrigeration can recommend the best humidifier for your home and lifestyle.
Too much humidity can be as much of a problem as too little humidity. Unlike portable units, a whole-home humidifier continually monitors relative humidity levels and then delivers the perfect amount of moisture to the air throughout your entire home.
Maintenance of whole-home humidifiers is easy and infrequent, and can be scheduled with you spring and fall preventative maintenance. Compare that to portable humidifiers that require you to continuously monitor levels in messy tanks.
Dry air can damage your family’s health and home. • Low humidity can increase your likelihood of getting colds, flu and other upper respiratory ailments. Viruses that cause colds and flu thrive in low humidity. Additionally, according to The American Society of Otolaryngology, dry air can make people more susceptible to infection. Drier air can also aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms. • Low humidity can cause home damage. It causes walls, woodwork, and your beautiful hardwood floors to crack. Electronics can fall victim to static electric charges, requiring expensive repair or replacement. • Low humidity can cause higher energy costs. Dry air can make you feel too cold at normal temperatures leading you to turn up the thermostat. This leads to higher energy bills. According to the EPA, every degree you lower your thermostat can result in 4% savings on your heating bill.
Beyond the damage low humidity causes, it makes you uncomfortable. It can cause: • Bloody noses • Dry mouth and itchy eyes • Sore throats • Cracked, itchy skin • Painful static shocks
"Humidifiers are commonly used in homes to relieve the physical discomforts of dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. The moisture they add to dry air also helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, splitting woodwork and cracks in paint and furniture." -U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
