How To Save Money With a Whole-Home Humidifier

How To Save Money With a Whole-Home HumidifierDuring the heating season, most of our customers are looking for ways to save money and conserve energy while remaining warm and comfortable. At Fritch Heating & Cooling, Inc., we deliver energy-efficient, cost-effective solutions to households in Peoria and the surrounding areas. One solution we recommend is installing a whole-home humidifier to save on your heating bill.

Why Humidity Is Important

Dry air cools you down by removing moisture from your skin. Therefore, maintaining humidity in the air will make your home feel warmer. As a result, you’ll be content setting your thermostat a few degrees lower. To keep your home comfortable, you should maintain an indoor humidity level between 35% and 50% during the months of colder weather. In addition to saving money on your energy bill, having a humidifier will also reduce dry skin, chapped lips, cracked hands and sinus irritation. Your houseplants will also benefit from having sufficient moisture in the air.

Installing a Humidifier for Your Whole House

There are two types of home humidifiers: portable and whole-home. Whole-home humidifiers are installed directly into your HVAC system by a licensed technician. These humidifiers work by blowing air over a moistened filter. Apart from its one-time installation, a whole-house humidifier requires virtually no maintenance. The licensed technicians from Fritch Heating & Cooling, Inc. in Peoria are available to help you with these considerations. We can provide you with an energy efficiency analysis, HVAC inspection and whole-home humidifier installation.
