GENERALAire Climate Control Technology - Air Humidifiers

All humidifiers for central forced warm air heating systems work on the same principle: As air is heated, it can and will absorb additional moisture from an evaporative media. To humidify the air you need heat, air movement and the presence of water for evaporation. What sets GENERALAire humidifiers apart is their efficiency and econonomy of operation using this basic principle to add comfort to your home.

How Does Humidity Affect My Comfort?

Since the air in your home is always trying to reach its saturation point, it will absorb water wherever it is found. That means it is stealing moisture from the bodies of you and your children, your pets, your furniture and even your house plants. By giving up moisture to the air, your skin, throat and nasal passages dry out and crack leading to various physical discomfort. That's why many doctors recommend humidifiers for allergy and asthma sufferers. Research has shown that 30% - 60% relative humidity is ideal. Outside this range, bacteria, fungi, viruses and mites thrive and multiply. As these creatures increase in number, so does your risk of being adverely affected.

How Does Humidity Affect My House?

Virtually everything in your home made from wood contains some moisture. As dry air sucks that moisture out, the wood shrinks and cracks. Hardwood floors seperate at the seams, furniture shrinks and cracks, and doors warp and no longer fit their frames as the moisture is drawn off. Pianos, guitars and other wooden musical instruments also shrink from the loss of moisture and go out of tune. Maintaining proper humidity levels can eliminate frequent and costly re-tuning. Perhaps the most annoying effect of dry indoor air is static shock. As you shuffle across a carpet or slide off upholstered furniture a static charge builds up in your body and results in that sudden, uncomfortable zap of electricity when you touch a piece of metal or other conductor.

How Do I Know What's Right For Me?
