Control Your Albany Homes Comfort with a Whole-Home Humidifier System

Your health can not be as good when humidity levels are off in your Albany home.

Low humidity levels can make your house seem chillier than it really is. Dry air can also make your skin and lips feel itchy—and make you more likely to get sick. And excess humidity can create water damage and mold growth.

A whole-home humidifier or dehumidifier from Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is the most practical method of restoring comfort and improving air quality in your rooms.

Our Experts can help you discover the right energy-efficient unit for your home. And we’ll uphold it with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

12 Signs Your Home’s Humidity Level is Off

The recommended setting for indoor humidity is 40–60 percent. You can measure it with a smart thermostat or digital humidity equipment.

If you don’t possess these devices, there are a few clues your home’s humidity level is imbalanced:

Humidity is Too Low

  1. Repeat bloody noses
  2. Split lips
  3. Scratchy skin, eyes or throat
  4. Lingering cold or flu symptoms
  5. Damage to wood flooring or furniture
  6. Too much static electricity

Humidity is Too High

  1. Mold growth
  2. Windows with moisture
  3. Stale odors
  4. Water damage or stains
  5. Decomposing wood
  6. Heightened allergy symptoms

How a Whole Home Humidifier or Dehumidifier Works

We put in a whole-home dehumidifier or humidifier as part of your HVAC system and air ducting. It manages humidity as your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner works.

The humidifier involves a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to increase moisture levels. The dehumidifier pulls in humid air and cools it. Then it transfers additional moisture into a pan or drain.

Both systems are more effective than their movable counterparts, which can only take care of a single room at a time. A whole-home system also involves much less upkeep than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
