Humidifiers

Is your house as dry as an old stick in winter? If your room humidifiers just aren't doing the job, you may want to consider a whole house humidifier. I carry a full line of Humidifiers from Aprilaire. They're installed directly onto your heating and cooling system, and and many of them feature digital humidity control. Because humidity is measured relative to the outside temperature, your Aprilaire Digital Humidity Control constantly measures the Relative Humidity in your home and optimizes it for your comfort. Think of the difference between Arizona and Florida.. If it's 105° in Arizona, usually the Humidity is very low, so it doesn't feel as warm. If it's 105° in Florida, it's usually stifling because the Humidity is so high. You can use the ability to digitally control the humidity in your home to your advantage. In the winter, increasing the Humidity allows you to lower the temperature and still be comfortable. In the summer, lowering the Humidity in your home allows you to be comfortable even though the thermostat may be set to 78° or higher. In the summer, each degree above 76° can mean a 3%-4% savings on your utility bill.

Aprilaire make a full line of whole house humidifiers for almost any heating situation. No more dry skin, dry sinuses, cracked wood, or static shocks. There are other benefits, too...
