Getting comfortable in your home requires more than just adjusting the thermostat. It requires maintaining the proper humidity levels throughout the seasonal changes. A whole-home humidifier can help keep the air moist in the dry winter months, and a whole-home dehumidifier can help make the overly humid summers more bearable. At Adam’s Healthy Home, we help clients create the perfect balance for year-round comfort.
How Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers Work
Whole-home humidifiers connect to the ductwork near your furnace. When air from the ducts circulates through the humidifier, it is exposed to water. This water evaporates into the air and circulates through the home. Dehumidifiers work similarly. However, instead of circulating the moisture through the house, they collect it when the moist air circulates over cooled refrigerant coils. This movement causes water in the air to condense on the coils, where it can be collected and removed from the air supply. These highly efficient designs will barely be noticed on your monthly utility bills but will create a positive effect on your indoor air quality that you will notice immediately.

The Advantages of Whole-Home Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers
Dry air can cool you off faster than humid air. This is why, during the winter months, you can feel chilly even when the thermostat is high. Dry air also causes the skin to dry out, noses to clog, and mouths to feel parched. It can also damage the wood and paint in your home. Whole-home humidifiers ensure that your air doesn’t get too dry. This helps protect your home and your health, which is especially important if you have breathing conditions such as asthma, COPD, etc.
During the summer, the weather in Minnesota can be downright unpleasant. The humidity levels rise significantly, which can make it difficult to cool off and get comfortable. A whole-home dehumidifier makes it possible to adjust the humidity levels in your home so that you feel perfectly comfortable. It also helps discourage mildew and mold growth, which protects the wood, siding, flooring, paint, and other elements from rot and insect infestations. While your air conditioner does help remove some of the humidity from the air, most are not capable of removing enough moisture for you to notice the difference in Minnesota’s climate.
