A humidifier is a device that emits water vapor or steam to increase moisture levels in the air, then installing a humidifier for a central heating, ventilation plus A/C system is ideal as your oil furnace emits dry air that decreases the house’s humidity… Humidity is the amount of water vapor found in the air, but the ideal humidity level in your house should be between 30 percent and 50 percent.
If it is lower than this, you need to improve your home’s comfort and health by adding a humidifier directly to your heating, ventilation plus A/C system. It’s especially important if you experience dry skin, cracked lips, breathing concerns, and frequent nose bleeding. All these are signs of low levels of humidity in your house and need to be increased. Installing a whole-house humidifier will help reduce dry, cracked lips and skin. Any wood product in the house like things such as furniture, wooden floors, and shelves dry and crack due to low humidity levels. A constant level of humidity in the air will help protect your furniture; when you consider buying a humidifier, note that there is a difference between an oil furnace humidifier and a traditional stand-alone humidifier. An oil furnace humidifier is installed directly into your heating, ventilation plus A/C system, enabling the air from the oil furnace to be humidified. A stand-alone humidifier expels air directly from the vents system. Therefore, the air around the humidifier will have more humidity compared to other locales. There are various types of oil furnace humidifiers: whole-home humidifiers, bypass/drum humidifiers, and also flow-through units. A bypass/drum humidifier installs directly to your heating, ventilation plus A/C system and supplies moisture to your oil furnace blower. It has a rotating wet pad that is fastened to the home water supply. A bypass humidifier, a whole-home humidifier, and a flow-through component can detect the level of humidity in the house and automatically turn on to fill the home air with the right amount of humidity.
