What is Humidity?

Humidity (HeatingOntario.ca)

Many home owners do not maintain the humidifier in their home. The primary reason for this is because they do not understand what humidity is. Anyone who owns a home in North America should have a humidifier as it can significantly improve the quality of life. But first it is important to know what humidity means. Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the circulating air (Atmosphere). This water vapor is not visible and is like any other gas in the atmosphere. A humidity of 100% mean that the air is fully saturated with water vapor and 0% humidity means that there is no water vapor present. We humans are very sensitive to humidity as our skin relies on the air to get rid of moisture. When we sweat our body is attempting to keep the body temperature down and keep us cool. When the humidity is high, sweat will not evaporate into air and we will feel hot and very uncomfortable. When the humidity is very low, the sweat evaporates very fast and in fact we feel much cooler than the actual temperature. Humans tend to feel most comfortable when the humidity is around 40-45 percent. Humidity is usually high in the summer and low in the winter. One way of controlling the level of humidity in the home environment is with the use of humidifiers.

We are an HVAC certified company that deals with all types of humidifiers. We offer humidifier installation for both homes and commercial establishments. Over the past decade we have installed humidifiers in countless homes and businesses and have gained significant insight into the needs of the community when it comes to humidifiers. Not only do we install humidifiers, we perform regular maintenance. Because of our work and reliable appliances, we have gained a solid reputation in the community.

Before we install a humidifier in your home, we will explain you all the benefits about the appliance. In addition, we will also check your duct system to ensure that the airflow is not obstructed. Our technicians will set the humidity at a comfortable level and ensure that your home is not too dry or too humid. Because there are many types of humidifiers on the market, our professional technicians will first sit down and discuss the pros and cons of each machine.

Over the years, we have set up a standard system of inspection of humidifiers, the ducts and vents to ensure that there is no debris causing obstruction. Installing a humidifier has long-term benefits. While the initial price of installation may be high, you will soon recover it with improved health and fewer doctor visits.
