Our bodies are self-regulating systems. More critical to your comfort than room temperature is how our bodies regulate their own temperature by moisture evaporation from the skin. That's why your summer comfort depends on "conditioned air" -- air that is not only cooled but more importantly de-humidified. The drier the air, the higher the rate of moisture's evaporation from your skin and thus the more your body cools.

For comfort in winter, relative humidity is just as important. The heat produced by your furnace or heat pump is extremely dry. By adding humidity, you slow the body's cooling process thus increasing comfort.

With proper humidity, you'll feel comfortable at lower thermostat settings. And for every degree you lower the thermostat, you will consume about 5% energy. With proper humidification, most homeowners can save 20% to 30% on heating costs during the coldest days and nights of winter.

Other benefits of whole-home humidification include:

  • Elimination of annoying static electricity,
  • Longer life for fine furniture, fabrics and artwork, and
  • A healthier family less susceptible to winter colds and flu.

Today's humidifiers no longer rely on the standing water that cause mold and mildew problems in the past. Learn more now. Schedule a no-cost no-pressure no-obligation consultation with Lincoln today.
