The weather in Glenview, IL, is cold and snowy for more than half the year; With the heating method blasting, the indoor air can become especially dry, however insufficient humidity makes the air feel colder, encouraging higher control unit settings, this adds to the demands on the gas furnace, accelerates wear and tear and can lead to costly repairs; Plus, bi-weekly utility bills are more costly, however overly dry air can be blamed for itchy skin, persistent cough, constant sneezing, itchy eyup, sore throat and chapped lips. It dries out nasal passages, increases susceptibility to colds and flu and lengthens reclaimy times from illness, and for anyone with eczema, psoriasis, asthma or dust irritations, low humidity aggravates symptoms. It also disadvantagely impacts sleep. The advised relative humidity level for the sleep environment is between 40 and 60%. In Glenview, our conditions fall way below the advised 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 bi-weekly routine. I also was required to clean the humidifier consistently to avoid introducing bacteria and pathogens into our breathing air! Because we have hard water, I had to use distilled water in the humidifiers. I finally contacted an Heating, Ventilation and A/C business in Glenview and invested into a whole-new home humidifier. The accessory works to introduce necessary moisture into the air as it passes through the gas furnace. Because of it, I’ve been able to lower the control unit settings and save currency every month. It requires only annual maintenance from an Heating, Ventilation and A/C business.
