Humidification Comfort You Can Depend On.

Here in Colorado, especially in the wintertime, we have extremely dry air! On average, our winter relative humidity is between 8-11%. The static threshold is 20% relative humidity. If it looks like a lightning storm when you move your covers at night, the relative humidity is low. Our humidification services will help with this. For health benefits, an average of 30% relative humidity will help keep your nose from bleeding, your throat from being dry/scratchy and your skin feeling good. Other items including any wood flooring, furniture, and even musical instruments, will benefit from a higher humidity level and will thank you for keeping them from separating or cracking.

Humidification FAQS

When should I use my humidifier?

Humidifiers are used to increase your in-home humidity, and are most beneficial during winter months. It is not recommended to run a humidifier with an AC system. This causes longer run times resulting in higher energy costs and can cause the evaporator coil to freeze.

What % relative humidity should I set my humidifier to?

For comfort, typically a setting of 30-40% relative humidity. An added benefit, to increasing your humidity level is feeling more comfortable at a lower temperature setting resulting in lower energy costs.

Is there maintenance associated with my humidifier?

Yes, there are maintenance procedures associated with all humidifier types. Lack of maintenance can lead to loss of function or water leaks.  It is most common to do your humidifier maintenance with your furnace maintenance so you are fully ready for winter!

What Our Customers Have To Say

Would definitely highly recommend them for any HVAC needs!
I could say what our problem was but really they are friendly people, honest, I called at around 10 am and they were here by about 2:30 pm on a busy, winter day. Nick was our technician and he spent a lot of time explaining the operation of the furnace to me and giving recommendations for how messed up our system is/was. The builder contracted a terrible company to install the HVAC system and they installed the humidifier wrong. Would definitely highly recommend them for any HVAC needs!
I saw such great reviews for Reliable I decided to give them a try!!
Like many others in the Colorado Springs area, I’ve bounced between various HVAC companies over the last few years and have been unhappy with the drama and service from the competition. I saw such great reviews for Reliable I decided to give them a try! They installed a new humidifier for me, performed my annual furnace inspection, and replaced my heat exchanger. They arrived on time, completed the work conscientiously, cleaned up the area after the work was done, explained every step of the process, took pictures of the whole system before, during, and after the repair, and explained exactly what they did, exactly how to use the humidifier, and exactly what to expect in terms of performance. They were also very covid-safe, which I greatly appreciate! Since the service, I have seen a reduction in my utility expenses (yay!) and have enjoyed a more comfortable and warmer home! Thank you so much for providing such a great service!
This is a great company!!!
This is a great company!!! They came out and serviced our furnace and home humidifier from top to bottom. He was right on time for our scheduled appointment. He also took the time to explain what he was doing and why. He was also able to fix our leaking water heater. He is very honest and trustworthy with great pricing. I will be a customer for life.
