Will My Chicago Home Benefit from an Aprilaire Humidifier?

If you find yourself wrestling with dry, static-laden air in your Chicago home, you are one of many. As homes have modernized, becoming more energy-efficient and sealed, they’ve also become a trap of sorts. As a result, air quality is a bigger deal than ever and major manufacturers are taking notice.

Brands like Aprilaire build better, more effective home humidity solutions each and every year, offering you the best products and services to restore proper moisture in your home. But why is your home so dry, and why is it such a big deal? The team at North Town Home Services is here to clue you in!

What Is Making My Home So Dry?

The answer is actually that many things play a pretty big role in drying out your Chicago home. The weather, of course, plays a big role. Winter is particularly bad about it, as outdoor air humidity tends to plummet, and even if we do get precipitation it’s in the form of flakes.

The other big factor is your home, your HVAC system and how they interact. Modern HVAC systems are exceedingly efficient compared to older systems, and our homes have updated to be a “sealed envelope,” keeping all of that conditioned air in. And for the most part that’s great! But it has one big downside, too. As a secondary function, your furnace or AC unit also dehumidifies the air. And when we’re in that nice, closed up and conditioned home, the result is desiccated and musty in-home air.

How Does Low Humidity Hurt My Home?

Low humidity levels can impact you in a wide number of ways, actually. It can harm your health, for one, which is, of course, the more important point. But it can do serious damage to your home, too.

Common impacts on health include:

  • Dry, irritated skin and eyes
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Respiratory illness (asthma, bronchitis)
  • Nosebleeds
  • Feelings of lethargy

Dry air can harm your home by:

  • Damaging wooden furniture
  • Cracking and peeling paint
  • Reducing the effectiveness of your home heating

All in all as you can tell, dry air is pretty bad news. So how do you tackle it? Well, a whole-home humidifier, of course.
