Even though the weather has started to warm up here in Las Vegas, there’s a good chance you’re still running your heater at night to stay comfortable while you sleep. However, there may be one simple factor that you’re ignoring that can make you even more comfortable.
Dry Air = Discomfort
Many people don’t realize that humidity plays such a large factor in the comfort level of a home. This is especially true here in the desert where the hair is always dry unless it rains. Your HVAC filters any remaining moisture out of the air because that’s its job.
Dry air is what irritates your skin, eyes, nose, and mouth. It can make a cold feel like death and can cause respiratory issues to be more severe. Dry air in a home can even have a negative effect on any wood furniture in your home.
Adding moisture into the air obviously remedies these uncomfortable issues. So, simply running a humidifier in your home can make a huge difference in how comfortable you feel while you’re sleeping. It also makes it a lot easier to heat your home, so your furnace doesn’t have to work so hard.
If it sounds like your HVAC unit is working harder than it should, contact a heating repair professional at 702 227.5622 today to schedule an inspection. You may be able to benefit from the installation of a humidifier for your entire home!
