The first sign of cold weather makes you want to turn on your furnace. Your system is constantly moving heat from one area to another (either inside or outside of your home). As your system functions, especially systems with gas powered furnaces, it will have a tendency to decrease the level of humidity in your air even drawing the moisture out of your wood furniture.
As a general rule you will feel the most comfort inside your home when humidity levels are between 30% and 50% consistently. Here are a few systems that we recommend to maintain optimal levels of humidity during Missouri winters.
Honeywell Bypass Humidifier
Honeywell Whole House Fan-Powered
Both bypass and power humidifiers require the heat from your furnace to increase water vapor in your indoor air so your entire system must be running in order for it to function properly.
A steam humidifier, however, has a built-in source of heat so that you can turn on the system fan without running the heat on slightly warmer days.
