3 Ways To Improve Your Havertown, PA Home In 2020

As part of the New Year, a lot of people like to make changes, resolutions, and take steps to improve their lives in 2020. Here are a few things you can do around your home that will help keep you more comfortable this decade than any before!

Add A Humidifier

3 Ways To Improve Your Havertown, PA Home In 2020In the winter, the air becomes VERY DRY. The low humidity leads to…

  • Dry skin
  • Bloody noses
  • Increased illnesses
  • Colder Air
  • Damage to furniture

People think that humidity is only a bad thing about the summertime, but truthfully, having the proper humidity levels helps your health, comfort, and maintaining your home.

Talk To Someone About A Humidifier For Your Home
When you add a whole-home humidifier, you will be adding moisture to the air. This allows for…

  • Softer, less dry skin with proper moisture levels in the air.
  • Increased health. Drier air allows for bacteria and airborne pathogens to travel easier. Adding proper moisture to the air reduces this.
  • Warmer air, and less work for your heating system. Moisture holds heat better. This is why we try to get rid of it in the summer, but in winter, it’s a welcome comfort!
  • Healthier home. Wooden furniture and accessories, wall paint, and other items around your home suffer from low humidity. Having proper humidity levels keeps the things in your home from being affected by changes in the moisture levels.

Whole-Home vs Room Humidifiers

You can use either, but we prefer a whole-home humidifier for a few reasons…

  1. The whole home is taken care of – This is obvious, but especially for the winter, a whole home being properly humidified is better. This will allow every room to feel comfortable, while also helping your heating system work a little less hard.
  2. Don’t have to decide what rooms to treat – If you have a room humidifier, you’ll likely put it in the room you spend a lot of time in. If you spend time in other rooms, you’ll need to move it, or get more. It can be less cumbersome to have a whole-home humidifier rather than a bunch of little ones spread throughout your home.
  3. Don’t use up outlets and space – If you do decide to have a bunch of humidifiers it can take up some space! If you spend time in your kitchen, bedroom, and living room, you’ll need to have 3 different humidifiers, plugged into 3 different outlets, and each humidifier will be taking up space. The whole-home humidifier is the solution here.
  4. Less maintenance – A whole-home humidifier plugs right into your ventilation system, and that’s it! No moving it around or turning it on or off. This is a very “set it and forget it” type of system.

Most people think their heating system is broken, or it’s time for a new one. This isn’t always the case. Adding a ductless unit to a space that won’t stay warm, maybe a bedroom or basement, will allow you to keep your current heating system, take some pressure off of it, and completely fix the problem area.
