It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.
You probably already know whether you need a humidifier or a dehumidifier as part of your system because you can feel it, right down to your skin.
Generally speaking, humidifiers get the job done in the winter when the air is the driest; and dehumidifiers get the job done in the summer, when the Texas air is so thick you can cut it with a knife.
Humidifying or dehumidifying your home’s air offers a list of benefits — to the health of your family and the health of your home.
Humidifiers add moisture to the air and help:
- Lessen the dry air that can irritate eyes, throat and lungs.
- Prevent gaps that occur between floorboard, loose furniture joints and window frames. (Because wood shrinks in the dry air.)
- Help soothe those with chronic coughs or illness.
We can build humidifiers right into your central heating system and use the ducts to distribute moist air throughout your home.
Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and help:
- Stop or reduce the growth of mold, bacteria and dust mites, all of which love high humidity and warm Texas summers.
Like humidifiers, we can install a dehumidifier as part of your central system, capturing moisture in the air and flushing it down the drain, typically 10-50 pints of water every single day.
