Control Your Wheeling Home’s Comfort with a Whole-Home Humidifier System

Your health can be affected when humidity levels are imbalanced in your Wheeling home.

Low humidity levels can make your house feel cooler than it really is. And at the other end of the humidity spectrum, extremely dry air can make your skin, lips and sinuses feel chapped. In some cases it can make you more vulnerable to getting sick. Excess humidity can even affect your home, leading to water damage and mold growth.

A whole-home humidifier or dehumidifier from Comfort Masters Service Experts is the most beneficial way to restore comfort and improve air quality at home.

Our Experts can help you help you figure out the best energy-efficient product for your home. And we’ll support it with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

12 Signs Your Home’s Humidity Level Is Off

The recommended setting for indoor humidity is between 40–60 percent. You can determine it with a smart thermostat or digital humidity monitor. If you don’t own these devices, there are a couple clues your home’s humidity level is outside a comfortable range:

Humidity Is Too Low

  1. Constant bloody noses
  2. Cracked lips
  3. Itchy skin, eyes or throat
  4. Prolonged cold or flu symptoms
  5. Damage to wood flooring or furniture
  6. Too much static electricity

Humidity Is Too High

  1. Mold growth
  2. Windows with condensation
  3. Stale odors
  4. Water damage or stains
  5. Decaying wood
  6. Aggravated allergy symptoms

How a Whole-Home Humidifier or Dehumidifier Works

We install a whole-home dehumidifier or humidifier as part of your HVAC system and network of air ducts. It manages humidity as your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner runs.

The humidifier utilizes a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to raise moisture levels. It starts by drawing water from an external source, like a tap or a reservoir, and then vaporizing it into the air. As the water vapor rises, it adds more moisture to the home’s atmosphere. The amount of moisture in the air is monitored by a humidity sensor so that you can adjust the level of humidity in your home to the level of comfort you desire. The humidity sensor also helps the humidifier understand when it should turn off once the desired level has been reached.

Meanwhile, a dehumidifier reverses this process and draws in wet air. It utilizes a fan to force this air over refrigerated evaporator coils, which cools it down. This condenses. The dehumidifier then shifts the extra moisture into a pan or drain. For most whole-home systems, this moisture is drained out and away from your home.

Both systems are more effective than their compact equivalents, which can only treat a single room at a time. A whole-home system also requires much less upkeep than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
