Humidifiers for Your Pittsburgh Home
There’s a science to managing comfort in your Pittsburgh home, and Mitchell Plumbing, Heating and Cooling knows it. Just locating and eliminating air leaks can cut energy bills up to 30%.
Besides lowering your utility bills, humidity control is very important to your health for a couple of reasons. Mold, which thrives in high humidity, is dormant or dies when the humidity is low. Dust mites also die when the humidity stays below 50%. But remember, the dust mites in your bed rely on you for their source of humidity, so always use mattress covers, pillow covers and box spring encasing.
On the other hand, below 30% relative humidity, people can be uncomfortable and can suffer from dry mucus membranes which can lead to nosebleeds and infections. Low humidity can aggravate the symptoms of asthma and high humidity at high temperatures can sometimes lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

The Benefits of using humidifiers
Pittsburgh Humidifiers offer year round comfort. Acclimate bypass and powered humidifiers are ideal for all Pittsburgh homeowners who have a central home comfort system. By providing humidity control throughout your entire home, the effects of dry air such as dry skin and static zaps are reduced and you experience greater comfort all year long.
With moisture being added to the air, your home will feel warmer so you’ll lower your thermostat and, in turn, your utility bill. Lowering your thermostat by as little as three degrees can reduce annual heating bills by as much as five percent.
Cleaner, more conditioned air helps to protect valuables like fine art, instruments, leather, and precious antiques, while also preventing your woodwork from cracking. For homeowners living in areas where the temperature gets bone-chilling, using an air humidifier can improve the indoor air quality. When it gets too cold the humidity in the air drops to unhealthy levels, when the humidity in the air drops below 30 percent it can cause a myriad of health issues, like skin irritation, dry sinuses, and increased asthma attacks. Using a Columbia humidifier increases the amount of moisture in the air making it easier to breath and also healthier for the people living in the house.
Years ago, air humidifiers were not that popular because the older models were noisy machines that are hard to clean and some were found to have a tendency to expel unhealthy particles into the air; fortunately today’s models are quieter and have improved performance, there are even some models that can be integrated into the house’s air conditioning system.
