Humidity is often spoken about as though it were a bad thing. “At least it’s a dry heat” has been used to often that it’s become a cliché. While it’s true that too much humidity can be a bad thing, too little can be just as harmful. If the air in your home is too dry, it can cause all manner of different problems for both yourself and your home. You should consider installing a humidifier before the problem gets out of hand. Fiebrandt Bros Heating & Cooling, Inc. installs and services humidifiers throughout Elmhurst, IL. If you need a humidifier installed, repaired, maintained, or replaced, we can help you out.

How a Humidifier Can Improve Your Health
Your body is mostly made of water, and as such it relies on a certain amount of moisture in the air around it in order to work properly. If that balance is disrupted, you’re going to start running into issues. In extremely dry air, your skin and the membranes in your nose will dry out and crack. Those are a couple of your body’s primary defenses against disease, which means you’ll be much more susceptible to infection in dry air.
Dry air also saps the moisture from wood products, which covers a lot of things in your home. Your books, furniture, and even the support beams in your walls will all become more brittle and easily damaged in dry air. This is why you want to install a humidifier if the air in your home is too dry.
Types of Humidifiers We Offer
There are a great many different kinds of humidifiers available on the market. We can’t cover all of them here, but we can outline two of the more popular types our customers choose for their Elmhurst–area homes:
- Steam Vaporizers: If you’ve ever used a vaporizer when you had a cold, you already know what this does. A steam vaporizer evaporates water, often using a heating element, and then releases it into the ducts while the climate control systems are operating. This is a great way to add some moisture back into your air.
- Misters: Ever been to a baseball game or outdoor market and seen jets spraying water droplets onto passerby? That’s essentially what a mister is. A mister simply sprays a fine mist of water droplets into the ducts, rather than evaporating its water supply like vaporizers do. Though simple, these are among the most popular humidifier types.
Which type of humidifier you install in your home should depend on your individual needs. Talk to a professional for more information about which would fit your needs best. We offer installation, repair and maintenance services on all types of humidifiers in Elmhurst, IL and the surrounding area.
