Humidifiers Installed With Service for Heating And Cooling in Pittsburgh, PA

Technicians who install equipment for heating and cooling for Pittsburgh, PA, residents can include a whole-house humidifier if the customer wants one. These devices can be installed with furnaces to provide extra moisture in the air during wintertime when humidity levels tend to be too low.

Dry Air

Winter air is naturally dry and forced-air furnaces worsen the problem. That can lead to static electricity throughout the house. Household residents experience dry skin, noses and throats, and increased susceptibility to respiratory infections.

Portable Humidifiers

Trying to humidify an entire house with a portable humidifier or two usually is far too inadequate. People who are hesitant to have whole-house humidifiers installed by technicians for heating and cooling in Pittsburgh, PA, may have some misconceptions about the equipment.

Common Misconceptions

One common misconception about these devices is that they are breeding grounds for bacteria. This actually was sometimes true of much older equipment but this is no longer the case. Manufacturers have made changes that prevent the growth of bacteria as well as other microorganisms.

A related misconception is that a whole-house humidifier could somehow cause mold and mildew growth in the home. Research confirms that mold doesn’t begin to develop until the indoor humidity level reaches 60 percent. Whole-house humidifiers do not produce enough moisture for the air to become that damp. They shut off long before this happens.

This equipment is installed by technicians with Miller Plumbing Heating Cooling Electric and information about whole-house humidifiers can be viewed at the website.
