If you’re looking to make your Calgary-area home as comfortable and liveable as possible, it’s quite important that you consider the relative humidity of your interior. Relative humidity refers to the percentage of moisture content in the air in your home, with between 40% and 60% being the optimal and most comfortable range. Not only that, but maintaining suitable relative humidity levels will help protect your household from a variety of illnesses and natural deterioration to your home’s structural integrity. We at Distinct Heating & Cooling understand the impact humidity can have on living conditions, which is why we offer a substantial selection of humidifiers that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and a great way to keep your Calgary-area home happy and healthy.
Overly dry or moist air can introduce all sorts of harmful situations not just to your household, but to your home and belongings as well. Static electric shock risk is increased from dry conditions, as is cracking in wood furniture and structural elements. Everything from plants to paintings and even wallpaper can deteriorate due to poor humidity, which can make maintaining your home all the more expensive if the problem isn’t addressed properly to help minimize the effects of dryness. You and your family will encounter more harmful living conditions that can easily allow for the spread of viruses through the air, as well as skin irritation, discomfort, decreased mental focus, and respiratory issues. Poor humidity will also make it more difficult to maintain the temperature of your home’s interior. As a result, you can expect your utility bills to increase if relative humidity levels aren’t efficiently maintained.
When your home has regulated control over indoor relative humidity levels, there is a great deal of benefits. Skin and hair receive the healthiest amount of moisture, which helps protect against flaking, dry skin and the conditions that can stem from it. Also, it efficiently hydrates your respiratory system, making it easier to breathe and protecting those with asthma or allergies from being affected by harmful atmospheric triggers. The greatest benefit to proper humidification is in protection from airborne-based infections. This is due to the fact that 40% to 60% relative humidity reduces the amount of time bacteria and microbes remain in the air, causing them to fall and settle more quickly due to increased moisture weight. Illnesses such as the flu are then more difficult to transfer from person to person, and the air is made cleaner as a result. The indoor temperature of your home will be far easier to maintain with the use of a humidifier which, when combined with a thermostat and energy-efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system, will help you save a great deal of money on energy bills.
