    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) advises not letting your RH drop below 30%. This is when you’re more susceptible to respiratory irritation and infection. Low RH heightens allergy and asthma symptoms. It can also damage your hardwood floors, wood furniture, and electronics.

    Maintaining a 30%-50% RH can be easier said than done in winter without a humidifier. The air is naturally drier. The home has a tight seal, and the heating system is running often.

    whole home humidifier

    While there are portable home humidifiers, we recommend whole-home solutions. The portable systems are cheaper upfront. The whole-home systems are cheaper long term and require much less cleaning and maintenance. They also provide the right RH throughout the house rather than just in a particular room.

    There are two main approaches to humidification: evaporative and steam. The evaporative method involves the absorption of water by the heated air. This is the cheaper option upfront but requires regular filter replacement. Steam systems are more expensive but don’t require regular filter replacement. They’re also better suited to dealing with serious humidity problems.

    Furnace humidifiers are common and relatively inexpensive. Steam units generally have their own fans. Homeowners often ask if they can add a whole-home humidifier if they have a boiler or mini-split system. The answer is yes. Such units have their own small duct that provides moistened air through a vent. In addition, we can plumb all these systems into your home’s water.

    A humidifier can eliminate or minimize many health conditions, including:
    • Cracked lips
    • Bloody noses
    • Dry and scaly skin
    • Irritated sinus passages
    • Sore and scratchy throat
