Indoor Air Quality
Humidifier Services in Westchester County, NY
Summers can be hot and humid here in Westchester County, but when winters fall, you have a whole new set of problems on your hands. Falling temperatures mean increasingly dry air, especially in homes with forced-air furnaces, which can lead to cracked, dry skin, static electricity, and an increase in illnesses as the air dries out your sinuses. And just as you can use a dehumidifier in the summer to get rid of unwanted moisture, so too can you use a humidifier in the winter to get rid of that dry air.

How Does Dry Air Affect My Home?
When winter comes to Westchester County, the low temperatures pull humidity out of the air. When the relative humidity levels drop below 30%, it’s dry enough to begin leeching moisture from your skin. That leads to a dry, itchy feeling in your skin, and when your sinuses dry out as well, it’s much easier to contract a cold or flu virus. That all comes on top of the static electricity and the fact that your home feels colder than it should, forcing your heater to work harder and raise your bills accordingly. A humidifier from Yost & Campbell Heating, Cooling & Generators can be the answer to all of those problems and more.
How Humidifiers Work
A whole–house humidifier is actually a very simple device: a wick connected to a water supply with a fan blowing across the top. When placed in the apex of your air conditioning ducts, it allows the moisture to enter your home when your HVAC system runs, raising the humidity levels and restoring comfort to your household. Your heater won’t need to work so hard and all of those other annoying problems—from itchy skin to static electricity—will become things of the past. Most importantly, it will help your family stay healthier and happier. Call Yost & Campbell Heating, Cooling & Generators to find out more.
