Buy a Ventilator or Humidifier
Since we spend most of our time indoors, it’s important to maintain a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. The best tools for the job are Holmes Heating’s Ottawa Humidifiers and Heat Recovery Ventilators.
Good Hydration for Your Home
Your home is a lot like your body – it needs to stay properly hydrated in order to maintain the health and comfort of those living inside.
When it’s cold out (as it often is in Ottawa), there is insufficient moisture in the air and this can lead to a variety of problems, including dry and bleeding noses, sore throats, cracked and itchy skin, breathing problems, dust buildup, static electricity, and cracks and dried-out joints in wood furniture and musical instruments. Older and less energy-efficient homes are more likely to suffer from low humidity along with airtight homes with HRVs.
The Benefits of a Whole-House Humidifier
If your indoor air is feeling dry and musty, it might be time to invest in a new whole-house humidifier. At Holmes Heating, we offer a variety of high-quality Ottawa humidity systems to distribute replenishing moisture throughout your entire home.
Did You Know a Humidifier Can SAVE You Money?
Not only will the extra moisture protect your health and your belongings, but a humidifier will also help you save on your monthly energy bills. Moist air holds heat longer, meaning you’ll be able to keep your thermostat slightly lower, which ultimately will help lower your energy bills at the same time.
Heat Recovery Ventilators: An Efficient Fresh Air Heating Solution
Don’t let the name fool you, a heat recovery ventilator is quite simple. It pulls fresh air into your home and heats it using the old, stale indoor air it’s sending out. In doing so, you use far less energy in heating the new fresh airflow since you’re transferring heat from exhaust air.
The heat recovery ventilator dramatically improves the energy efficiency of your entire system, while also monitoring for drops in your home humidity levels. Contact Holmes Heating today to learn more about adding this important piece of energy-saving equipment to your heating system.
