Why You Should Install a Whole-House Humidifier for Your Colorado Home

Discover the benefits of having a quality whole-house humidifier installed and counteract the negative effects of Colorado’s dry climate.

The dry air in your home is a natural consequence of the dry climate in Colorado, but this does not mean you can’t do anything about it. To discover your options, get in touch with a Gale Force Heating & A/C, Inc HVAC contractor about installing a whole-house humidifier as soon as possible. The device connects to your home’s HVAC system to increase humidity throughout the entire building. 

There are many whole-house humidifier brands and types out there, so it is important that you do your homework before making a major purchase. The three types are:
  • Bypass humidifiers – These redirect warm air from the heating ducts through a water tray. 
  • Fan-powered humidifiers – Compared to bypass humidifiers, these use a fan to redirect the warm air, allowing for higher humidity levels and improved energy efficiency. 
  • Steam humidifiers – These use electricity to boil water, create steam, and push it through the ventilation system to increase humidity. They are fast, efficient, and deliver cleaner air. 

These humidifiers all allow you to control the level of moisture in your home. As you review the whole-house humidifier models available, you will probably come across some portable humidifiers as well.

Portable vs. Whole-Home Humidifier

You’ll never encounter such issues with a whole-house humidifier. On the contrary, it is one of the most worthwhile purchases you can make. Reviewing the pros and cons of a whole-house humidifier is the best solution.

Whole-House pros:

  • Increase Comfort
  • Improved air quality
  • Easy to use
  • Low maintenance  
  • Silent
  • Out of sight

Whole-home humidifier cons:

  • Requires professional installation
  • High upfront costs
Despite the cons, the numerous benefits residential humidifiers offer make it worthwhile. If you haven’t installed one yet, every day that goes by is another day when you could enjoy those benefits.
