Broomfield’s Trusted Source for Central Humidifiers
To assist with achieving optimal indoor air quality, Save Home Heat Company offers central humidifier services for homes in Broomfield, CO that are heated by central forced air systems. As many homeowners know, heating your home during the chilly winters in Broomfield can result in low humidity levels. A central humidifier for homes heated by a forced air furnace could be a great solution to this common issue, and our team of expert home comfort specialists is ready to help you make a decision that you’ll be comfortable with for the years to come.
An Overview of Central Humidifiers
It’s not uncommon for Broomfield homeowners to suffer from low humidity levels that can result from heating your home during the winter. Dry skin, cracking wood furniture and flooring, and an itchy throat are all common indoor occurrences with cold weather and drier air, but they don’t have to be. By complimenting your existing centrally ducted heating system with a central humidifier, you can improve the humidity levels in your household. The resulting benefits from comfortable humidity levels include improved skin and respiratory issues, protection for your wooden furniture, and even equally comfortable indoor temperatures with the thermostat turned down a few degrees.
Some benefits of central humidifiers include:
- Greater protection from airborne viruses and bacteria
- Elevated resistance from common indoor winter respiratory and skin issues
- Reduced airborne dust, pet dander, and more
- Reduces or eliminates static electric shocks
- Help protect valuable wood product home investments
- Better comfort with a lower thermostat temperature, resulting in lower utility bills
To determine if you and your Broomfield home can benefit from the addition of a central humidifier, the best course of action is to schedule a consultation with an experienced comfort specialist from Save Home Heat Company.
Choosing a Central Humidifier for Your Broomfield Home
Standard Flow-Through Humidifiers
When considering a central humidifier, there are two main options for Broomfield homeowners to consider. The most popular design is the flow-through model which, like all central units, uses your furnace to blow humidified air through your ducts into the various areas of your home.
These types of central humidifiers require that the heat in your furnace be running in order to provide humidity. Their overall effectiveness depends on how consistently the furnace is running to heat the home. Flow-through humidifiers are available in bypass models, the simplest of all designs, as well as power units, that have a built-in fan for improved performance.
This type of humidifier has a relatively low upfront cost and its annual maintenance needs are relatively simple.
Central Steam Humidifiers
The second common design is the steam humidifier, which does not require heat from the furnace in order to do its job. Water is boiled inside the unit and then delivered to the home thru the ducting system by means of the furnace blower, regardless of whether the furnace is providing heat at that time.
Steam humidifiers are highly effective and are the go-to product when consistent humidity levels are required 24/7, regardless of the heating needs of the home. Steam units are the best call for helping to preserve valuable wood products such as wood flooring and antique furniture, or for health concerns that require consistent humidity levels throughout the day and night.
Steam units are a higher upfront investment than standard flow-through humidifiers, and their annual maintenance requirements are more detailed, but when you need complete indoor humidity control, it makes sense to consider these high performance products.
While portable humidifiers are certainly an option, our team doesn’t strongly recommend their use because of their general inability to provide effective whole-home humidity control and the regular fuss involved with keeping them running throughout the winter. The team at Save Home Heat Company can provide you with more information about your options and will help you find the right humidifier to meet the unique needs of your home.
