When homeowners think about indoor comfort, they usually just think about temperature. But the amount of moisture in your home’s air also has a significant impact on your comfort. If your home’s air is too dry, you may experience problems like:
- Static electricity
- Dry skin
- Sinus issues
- Damage to woodwork
- Bacteria and viruses
You don’t have to live with indoor air that’s too dry, because the Ballard indoor air quality team can measure your home’s humidity levels and recommend a humidification system that will improve your comfort and peace of mind.
We Can Dehumidify, Too
Your home’s problem may be too much moisture, and if that’s the case, Ballard can also help. We can install a whole-home dehumidifier that works in conjunction with your air conditioner or heat pump to pull excess water vapor out of the air and send it down the drain, improving your comfort. If you’ve noticed any of these symptoms of high indoor humidity, a dehumidifier may help:
- Stale, muggy air
- Musty smells
- Problems with mildew or mold spots
- Damp areas or water stains on walls or floors
- Fogging windows
Ballard’s dehumidification experts will analyze your home’s needs and recommend the best ways to make your home more comfortable.
Which Type Of Humidifier Is Right For You?
There are many different types of humidifiers, but some are better choices than others, depending upon your home’s needs. Ballad’s humidifier experts will examine your home and recommend which of these approaches will work best for you:
- Central Systems
Central humidifiers are built into your home’s air conditioner or heat pump and connected to your water supply. They are typically the most effective way to improve humidity throughout your home
- Ultrasonic Humidifiers
Silent and requiring little regular maintenance, these models use a diaphragm that vibrates to create sounds humans can’t hear. Those vibrations create cool water droplets that are circulated throughout the home with a fan.
- Impeller Humidifiers
These humidifiers have rotating discs that spray a mist into the air. While inexpensive, they generally only humidify a small area. Regular cleaning is critical to prevent bacteria from forming.
Inexpensive evaporators blow air through a damp filter. Unfortunately, they tend to be effective only for small spaces and may put so much moisture into the air that users experience problems with mold and musty smells.
Vaporizers heat water and turn it into steam. Most can only humidify a small area, and some create a burn hazard, so they may not be safe around kids or pets.
