Humidity Control for Homes or Businesses
Milwaukie Heating & Cooling only sells and installs quality whole-home humidifiers, which are installed as part of your home furnace system.
Room air humidifiers are a key component of indoor air quality. The optimal humidity level in a home should be between 30-60% relative humidity. Anything below 30% or above 60% facilitates the propagation of bacteria, viruses, fungi and mites. It also exacerbates respiratory infections, allergic rhinisitis, asthma and causes chemical reactions and ozone production within your home. Humidity control helps to alleviate health-related problems associated with overly dry air, such as sinus headaches, nose bleeds, dry skin, sneezing, dry skin, itchy eyes, cracked lips, allergies or asthma.
Maintaining humidity levels promotes the stability of wooden floors, furniture, musical instruments and artwork.
