Two Keys to Home Comfort: Your Humidifier and Dehumidifier

When it comes to your home comfort, there might be one factor you tend to overlook: your home’s humidity levels. In addition to your furnace and air conditioner, a humidifier and dehumidifier can balance the temperature of your home by ensuring proper moisture levels. RJ Heating and Air Conditioning specializes in installing these systems—so whether you need new ones or replacements, we can help. Read about the difference between humidifiers and dehumidifiers and their benefits below, then call us at 414-463-1140 for more information.

What Does a Humidifier Do?

You might associate humidity with heat and discomfort, but some is actually necessary for a healthy home, especially in winter when the air can get dry. A humidifier brings much needed moisture into your home, which helps with dry skin, sore throats, and even respiratory problems when temperatures plummet.

Other benefits of a humidifier include:

  • Eliminating static electricity
  • Helping you feel warmer without turning up the thermostat
  • Lowering your energy use
  • Improving your indoor air quality

What Does a Dehumidifier Do?

Just as a humidifier brings needed moisture into your air, a dehumidifier helps get rid of excess amounts. When your home moisture levels get too high, which can often happen in summer, a dehumidifier brings them down to a comfortable level. This not only aids in preventing mold, mildew, and condensation—it also helps:

  • Alleviate problems with allergies and asthma
  • Get rid of mugginess
  • Improve air ventilation
  • You feel cooler even at higher temperatures
