Keep Your Home Comfortable No Matter the Weather
As homeowners, we often forget how much our property and health rely on stable, balanced humidity. Without the right level of ambient moisture, furniture begins to crack and warp, and skin starts to itch and blister more readily. In other words: low humidity makes for an uncomfortable home.
That’s where humidifiers come into play. Portable humidifiers provide some help. However, room-sized products offer only room-sized relief for your home and family. At Main Street Heating & Cooling, our Sandy whole-home humidifier installation services supply outstanding results for your entire home.

Types of Humidifiers
Most humidifiers offered in the residential market fall into two distinct categories:
- Bypass: Bypass models rely on your existing heating and cooling system to drive moisture throughout the house. This, of course, requires healthy ductwork; leaky ducts would only waste air and power. Bypass models often provide customization settings, making it easier to find a moisture level that’s comfortable for you.
- Power: Power humidifiers, on the other hand, utilize their electric power source. They generally enjoy higher moisture capacity levels, making them more adept at conditioning large properties. Because of their self-sustaining electric fans, power humidifiers don’t require a running HVAC system to circulate moisture.
Crucial Benefits of Balanced Moisture
If you’ve ever used a portable humidifier, you understand the soothing power that moisture has for your lungs, sinuses, nasal cavity, eyes, and skin. Dry air inflicts all kinds of punishing ailments, such as nose bleeds and itchy skin. During the dry seasons, you can either be stuck in the living room huddled around the portable moisture system or you could enjoy the house-wide benefits of a whole-home solution.
Of course, there are other crucial benefits to explore. Dried-out wood flooring and furniture rely heavily on sufficient moisture levels. When the air in your home is too dry, it draws moisture from surfaces throughout the house. Unless you like creaky floorboards and damaged furniture, a humidifier greatly helps.
