The air quality in our home really gets dry. The winds naturally dry out every bit of air. Then, you add in a heating system in the winter and there is no moisture to be found. The oil furnace I use is about 50 years old and is super dusty; I have yet to figure out how to clean the inside of the thing, however so every year the oil furnace runs at full speed ahead polluting our indoor air conditions. The dry air quality in our home makes it so static cling is a problem and electric shocks, my skin gets pretty flaky, my nose bleeds and even the wood furniture in my home sometimes splits in half due to the lack of moisture. I have learned online how to repair this issue; Everything I have found has said to add a sort of expensive humidifier with our heating equipment! If you add humidity to the air it can do a lot of good… Not only will my skin as well as home be moisturized, but the heating equipment will love it too, then with moisture in the air quality, the air naturally feels a whole lot warmer. So adding a humidifier to the oil furnace ensures that I can set the control component thermostat a couple degrees lower. I absolutely save a lot of money with the investment of a humidifier. It is pretty healthy for me, the home and the heater. Now, I just need to find the right size and model for our gas furnace. I want to have a humidifier that can be built right into the actual gas furnace. As the oil furnace turns on, I want the moisture already going in that air.
