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.

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!
