There are so many factors that impact the quality of your home’s indoor air during the winter, and they differ from what impacts your air in the summertime. Some of the variables that impact your indoor air quality include:
The desire to stay inside for most of the day
Addition of extra insulation to your home
A decrease in the amount of moisture in the air
There are a lot of positive aspects that accompany installing a whole-home humidifier. For starters, a whole-home humidifier can be installed with your HVAC system. It is also connected to your ductwork so you can evenly humidify every room in your home. This also means the humidifier is out of sight and you won’t have to worry about trying to hide it with a piece of furniture.
Additionally, whole-home humidifiers are connected to your homes water supply so you will never have to worry about refilling it! While the initial cost of a whole home humidifier might be higher than that of a portable one, they quickly make up for that cost because of their helpfulness.
Portable humidifiers are smaller and therefore allow you to move them around from room to room. They also make it easy to choose which area of your home needs more humidity than others. Because they are not permanent additions to your residence, they are an excellent option for those renting an apartment, condo, or house!
However, because they are so small, they are not the best permanent solution for your whole house. They also require more consistent servicing regarding maintenance and refilling of their water reservoirs, which sometimes needs to be done daily.
