In your business, it can increase static electricity and can add to overall computer fatigue and dry eyes, etc. Fortunately there are several solutions to the problem of too-dry air; a humidifier to fit your existing heating system is an easy way to correct this issue. we also offer a whole-house humidifier that  will bring the relative humidity level inside your home back to a normal level, creating a healthier, more comfortable indoor environment.

Dehumidifiers

When it’s humid outside, it’s humid inside, and when it’s humid inside your air conditioning system works harder (and uses more power) to keep up with the humidity and keep you comfortable. Excessive humidity in your home makes your skin feel clammy, and it encourages the growth of mold and mildew which can adversely affect your health and make rooms smell musty. In the office, it can affect all your office equipment and employee overall health, impacting your bottom line. A Ducted Dehumidifier system is often a good choice to control excess humidity. A second option is a whole-house dehumidifier installed directly onto your home heating and cooling system, and it works quietly, out of sight, to remove excessive moisture and find the perfect balance for comfort and health. Another – and sometimes better option-  might be an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV).
 
An ERV is used to exhaust stale air from a home and supply fresh air to the inside. These units have an energy core that is used to retain indoor air temperature as outdoor air is being supplied to the house. ERVs can be used to exhaust bathroom and kitchen odors, all while bringing in clean outdoor air. Such units are frequently used in new, tightly constructed homes. An ERV system can be installed with a dedicated ductwork system or can tie into your current warm air furnace or ducted A/C unit.

 You don’t have to live in a humid home—contact the professionals at AFC and ask about your whole-house dehumidifier options.
