It was not long ago that Residential Humidification and Residential Air Cleaning were “luxuries.” However we have seen several trends that make whole house humidification and whole house air cleaning more and more sense.
The first trend is new home construction. New homes, whether they are built in Aurora or Naperville, Illinois are more energy efficient, tighter and more environmentally friendly. All of that is good, but in the winter the air becomes very dry; literally desert-dry. The second trend is fuel costs and the third trend is allergens in the air such as pollen or chemicals. Let’s discuss these in terms of residential humidifiers and residential air cleaners.
Efficient furnaces and central heating systems are essential for our cold Chicagoland winters. As houses have become better built, better insulated and “tighter,” the air has become dryer. In fact, the air in most modern Aurora, Illinois homes has lower humidity than the Sahara desert!
Low humidity increases energy costs because the air does not “hold” as much heat. Low humidity eventually shrinks door jams, window frames, wooden floors and even furniture and pianos. Most importantly, very dry air increases allergens in the air such as dust, pet dander and mites; low humidity air is more difficult to breath and spreads cold and flu’s. Low humidity dries and cracks skin and causes rashes.
The answer to all of these problems is whole home humidification. We install furnace humidifiers for the same reason we install all Trane HVAC products; their technology and reliability are world class.
Trane whole home humidifiers are either installed with a new HVAC system, or they can be retrofitted to any existing system. Your household will immediately feel and breathe the difference. Energy costs will be lower and the whole house will be happier.
India Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration is always pleased to discuss whole home humidification with you to help you pick out a product that best suits your needs. Should you already have a humidification system that is not properly working, we also service and repair humidifiers throughout Chicagoland.
Over the years, it seems like more and more people in Chicagoland are becoming more allergic. It’s true. Not only is there more pollen, grasses and molds in the air, but many synthetic materials used in new homes give off odors and chemicals. Also, as homes are built tighter, more airborne bacteria is circulated increasing the likelihood of sickness.
While residential air cleaning may sound like a luxury, it is a necessity in homes where children suffer from severe allergies or asthma or there are members of the household with respiratory problems. Once residential air cleaners are installed, everyone in your family will immediately notice the difference.
Trane whole home air cleaners are either installed with a new HVAC system, or they can be retrofitted to any existing system. Your household will immediately feel and breathe the difference and even the air will smell cleaner and fresher.
