Does your skin get super dry and itchy in the wintertime? Do you constantly have to apply lip balm at home or frequently wake up with dry and cracked lips? Do your allergy or asthma symptoms seem worse at home? Do your nose and throat feel dry when you’re at home?
If you’re answering “yes” to these questions, the air inside your home may be too dry. Very dry air is not good for your home, it’s not good for your family, and it’s not good for you.
That’s why you should look into having JW Pierson install an Aprilaire whole-house humidifier to increase the comfort in your Essex, Passaic and Bergen County home.
First, very dry air can create all of those above problems, as well as the hassle of static electricity. But did you know all the ways very dry air can damage your home and belongings, including electronics like TVs and computers and artwork?
That dry air can cause separation in your hardwood flooring, as well as shrinkage and cracks. It can damage the wood trim and molding in your home. The wood cabinetry in your kitchen, bathroom, rec room and home office can shrink and crack. This can expose panel edges, which will not match the tone of the rest of the cabinetry. If there is expansion and contraction over the summer and winter, the finish or paint on your cabinet could be damaged.
You can end up with higher heating costs because drier air makes you feel colder, so you crank the thermostat.
JW Pierson can help you with choosing, installing, maintaining and repairing an Aprilaire whole-house humidifier.
