The weather in Glenview, Illinois, is cold and snowy for more than half the year! With the furnace blasting, the indoor air can become especially dry; Insufficient humidity makes the air recognize colder, encouraging higher control component settings, then this adds to the demands on the gas furnace, accelerates wear and tear and can lead to expensive repairs, plus, monthly utility bills are more expensive, and overly dry air can be blamed for itchy skin, persistent cough, constant sneezing, itchy eyes, sore throat and chapped lips.
It dries out nasal passages, increases susceptibility to colds and flu and lengthens reusey times from illness, and for anyone with eczema, psoriasis, asthma or dust sensitivities, low humidity aggravates symptoms.
It also drawbackly impacts sleep. The requested relative humidity level for the sleep environment is between 40 and 60%. In Glenview, our conditions fall way below the requested level in the winter. I initially tried making an improvement with portable humidifiers. I found that these devices are a lot of work. I needed to make filling the reservoir area of my biweekly routine. I also was required to scrub the humidifier constantly to avoid introducing bacteria and pathogens into our breathing airâ€¦ Because both of us have taxing water, I had to use distilled water in the humidifiers. I finally contacted an Heating plus Air Conditioning corporation in Glenview and invested into a whole-apartment humidifier. The accessory works to introduce necessary moisture into the air as it passes through the furnace. Because of it, I’ve been able to lower the control component settings and save currency every month. It requires only annual maintenance from an Heating plus Air Conditioning corporation.
