Control Your Livermore Home’s Comfort with a Whole-Home Humidifier System

Your health can be affected when humidity levels are imbalanced in your Livermore home.

Low humidity levels can make your house seem cooler than it really is. And at the other end of the humidity spectrum, extremely dry air can make your skin, lips and sinuses feel chapped. In some cases it can make you more vulnerable to getting sick. Excess humidity can even affect your home, causing water damage and mold growth.

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

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

12 Signs Your Home’s Humidity Level Is Off

The ideal setting for indoor humidity is between 40–60 percent. You can determine it with a smart thermostat or digital humidity sensor. If you don’t own these devices, there are a couple clues your home’s humidity level is imbalanced:

Humidity Is Too Low

  1. Frequent bloody noses
  2. Chapped lips
  3. Dry skin, eyes or throat
  4. Persistent cold or flu symptoms
  5. Damage to wood flooring or furniture
  6. Heavy static electricity

Humidity Is Too High

  1. Mold growth
  2. Windows with condensation
  3. Musty odors
  4. Water damage or stains
  5. Decaying wood
  6. Aggravated 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 network of air ducts. It regulates humidity as your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner focuses on comfortable temperatures.

The humidifier utilizes a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to raise moisture levels. It starts by drawing water from a nearby source, like a tap or a reservoir, and then vaporizing it into the air. As the water vapor rises, it adds more moisture to the home’s atmosphere. The amount of moisture in the air is monitored by a humidity sensor so that you can adjust the level of humidity in your home to the level of comfort you desire. The humidity sensor also helps the humidifier recognize when it needs to turn off as soon as the desired level has been reached.

Meanwhile, a dehumidifier reverses this process and pulls in wet air. It utilizes a fan to force this air over refrigerated evaporator coils, which cools it down. This condenses. The dehumidifier then moves the extra moisture into a pan or drain. For most whole-home systems, this moisture is drained out and away from your home.

Both systems are more efficient than their movable equivalents, which can only treat a single room at a time. A whole-home system also requires much less upkeep than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
