Grove Heating and Cooling is on a mission to protect the comfort, health and safety of homeowners in Silver Spring, Maryland. As a local business, we understand the impact of weather on indoor air quality. When temperatures drop in the fall and winter, dry air has a profound influence on your well-being. Symptoms of dry air include exacerbating asthma and allergies and prolonging the risks of viruses. A humidifier helps to restore humidity levels and defend against some of the most common ailments associated with Maryland winters.
Just like a furnace protects your family against the extreme cold outside, indoor air quality products from Grove creates a defense against dry air, bacteria, allergens, dust and other irritants within your indoor air. We offer a comprehensive suite of indoor air quality products including air cleaners, air purifiers, smart thermostats, dehumidifiers and humidifiers.
A humidifier adds moisture to the air either through water vapor or evaporation. The most familiar humidifiers are tabletop humidifiers used to relieve cold and flu symptoms. The dry mucous membranes, cough and scratchy throats associated with viruses are suppressed by increased humidity levels. Most homeowners have used these small devices to help them sleep when they are ill.
A whole house humidifier is installed into the HVAC system. In fact, many modern furnaces are designed for easy modification of a humidifier. Grove offers a number of unique humidifiers, but all designs function similarly. A humidistat monitors the relative humidity circulating within your HVAC system. When the air becomes too dry, moisture vapor is added to the air. Regulating a stable humidity level within your home, whole house humidifiers are surprisingly affordable and operate efficiently in the background of your life.
If your house feels uncomfortable, humidifiers help improve indoor air quality. Generally, the ideal humidity level for Silver Spring, Maryland is 30-50%. While this seems like a wide range, a sudden cold front that brings single-digit temperatures radically impacts indoor air. Just like spring storms can cause high humidity levels and even lead to issues like mold and mildew growth, cold air quickly causes dry air issues. If you are curious, small humidistats are available at local hardware stores. You can use these inexpensive devices to self-assess your home.
Some of the most common signs of low humidity are easy to measure without buying gadgets:
