Hello St. Louis Homeowners,
This winter your home may be drier than the Sahara. This would be a desert humidity level of approx. 16% which means your home is likely unhealthy. Dry itchy skin, dry nose, static shock, sore throats, and withering home furnishings may be just the beginning of some of the problems from dry indoor air.
Fear not though. There are numerous solutions to solving dry indoor air.
For some homes simply tightening up the envelope is enough to stop humidity from leaving the home. Other homes may need a humidifier to solve the problem. Bypass humidifiers, power humidifiers, steam humidifiers, and air sealing are all possible solutions. The humidifiers are connected to existing ductwork and simply evaporate water into the air.
A properly conditioned home will make your life happier, healthier, and more productive. Call Dunn Heating and Cooling of St. Louis for more advice at (314) 476-9606.
