Whole-House Humidifiers in South Bend
Enjoy More Comfortable Indoor Air During the Winter Months
Here in the Michiana region, we're no strangers to freezing cold winters during which our heating systems are frequently running. While our furnaces and radiant heaters keep us warm, the unfortunate downside is that they also dry out our indoor air, sending humidity levels plummeting. This can cause a number of problems, like itchy skin and eyes, dry skin and nasal passages, scratchy throats, chapped lips, and even cold and flu symptoms.
In addition to the physical symptoms, low indoor humidity can cause expensive things in your home to dry out and become damaged, such as wood floors, furniture, or musical instruments. That’s why you need a solution that will provide your home with an adequate amount of humidity without the danger of flooding and mold damage. The solution is a whole-home dehumidifier installed inside of your HVAC system.
By keeping your indoor humidity levels in check, you can protect your health and your home. Call Great Lakes Heating & Air Conditioning now at (574) 498-7556 to ask about whole-house humidifier installation in South Bend and the surrounding areas.

How Humidifiers Help Minimize Illness from Airborne Viruses
Did you know that most viruses have the same basic needs as us? They survive better in temperatures and humidity levels that we find comfortable. You may wonder why in Michiana, it seems people get sick more during the winter months. The reason is simple: the air, especially inside, is much drier. This dry air causes our throats and nasal passages to become dry and crack, providing an immediate pathway for viruses to enter our systems. Installing a humidifier can prevent the physical symptoms that make it easier for viruses to take hold and make you ill.
Humidifiers May Help You Save Energy, Too!
If all of that doesn’t convince you, then consider the fact that moisture in the air increases the temperature you “feel”. We find most people are able to lower the temperature in their home and still be comfortable, saving them more on their gas bill than the cost of the humidifier!
