A humidifier is a device that controls the humidity in your home. A whole-house humidifier is designed to work with your central heating and cooling system. A whole-house humidifier adds moisture to the air in your home as needed, which makes the air quality better and more comfortable.
Adding a whole-house humidifier to your home will not only help the quality of your air and keep you more comfortable; it can also save money on those horrible heating bills. With more humidity in the air you will be able to lower your thermostat, as humidified air feels much warmer than dryer air at the same temperature.
A whole-house humidifier offers more comfort than portable units by adding the right amount of moisture to your home. These humidifiers are installed directly to your heating or cooling system, which makes them easier to use and require much less maintenance than portable units. In order to achieve the same results you would need to place a portable unit in each room of your home and refill them and clean them constantly, while a whole house humidifier is connected to your central system and requires very little maintenance.
