Whole-House Humidifier Installation, Repair, & Replacement
Why do we need humidifiers installed in our Omaha area homes? When winter weather strikes, we retreat to our homes and turn up the furnace. Your furnace does a great job heating your home, but it also steals the moisture from the air. Because we never open our windows in the winter, the air inside our homes has no way to gain any moisture back. As we get further into the season, the air in our homes become drier and drier. The bad news is that the human body doesn’t like dry air. It causes a variety or problems. Here are just a few signs that the air in your home is too arid.
Top Signs of Dry Air in Your Home
- Your skin gets itchy
- Your lips feel chapped
- Bloody noses become more common
- Coughs & colds persist
Besides physical maladies, a lack of humidity can cause other problems. Wood in your home becomes dried out as well. The space between the slats in your wood floors becomes more prominent as the wood shrinks. Wood furniture can develop cracks and even wood molding can suffer. And one of the most obvious signs that your home needs more moisture is that annoying static shock. The ideal level of indoor humidity is between 30% and 50%. So how do you increase your humidity level?
Installing a Whole House Humidifier Will Add Moisture to Your Omaha Home
Trying to add moisture to your entire house with portable humidifiers just isn’t practical. Even if you move these units from room to room, it’s unlikely they will make a noticeable difference. Not to mention that they can become high-maintenance because you must remember to turn them on and off every day and add water so they don’t dry out. Plus, there are the energy costs of running 3-5 units every day all day.
A whole-house humidifier will do a much better job all season long and you won’t even have to think about it. A whole-house humidifier attaches directly to your furnace and a constant supply of water means you never have to worry about refilling it. When you invest in a whole house humidifier, it will constantly monitor the relative humidity of your home and deliver the perfect amount of moisture to every single room in your home that has air ducts.
Humidifiers Save You Money on Energy Bills
You may not realize it, but moist air feels warmer. That’s because when moisture on your skin evaporates, it makes you feel cold. Think how chilly you are stepping out of the shower before drying off. When the air in your home is full of moisture, it doesn’t evaporate off of your skin. This means that you can actually lower the temperature of your thermostat by a degree or two and not feel colder. And that will lead to energy savings and lower monthly heating bills.
Let the G-Force Team Install a Humidifier in Your Omaha Area Home
One of our expert technicians will help you choose the model that’s right for your home’s size.

This type of humidifier runs independently of your furnace, which means it comes on when your thermostat detects the humidity level dropping in your home. A Steam humidifier also uses 70% less water than a standard humidifier. Both types of humidifiers can be installed in just a short time and you and your family will be breathing easy again.
