Is Your Furnace Heating Unit Reducing Indoor Air Quality in Your North Las Vegas, NV Home?

When you are stuck in the house all day because the weather outside is too cold to be in you might start to feel sick. Many people become sick over the winter and some people believe that this is from being stuck in the house all day long and in close proximity to other people. Although this is partially to blame the quality of the air in your home can be troublesome to your health as well. The cold air outside often creates dry air while the difference in the summer is that there is a lot of moisture in the air. This comes off as humidity and in the summer may be overwhelming but is a noticeable lack in the winter. The winter months are hard on your skin, hair and of course your health because of how dry the air is. Now when you go in your house you are using a heater that is not creating any level of moisture and the air remains dry. You may be wondering why dry air is such a big deal in your house but it can be contributing to the level of quality in your air. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning outlines how your heater can be reducing your air quality.

Dry Air Allergy Symptoms

There are lots of times in the winter that the air is dried out and this can be effecting you and your family. The air that is considered too dry usually holds less than 30% of the humidity that is in the air. The humidity is needed to keep the moisture in the air and that means more moisture to you as well. The dry air is not good for anything because it will start to dry out everything in its path. You will start to notice that your skin is dry and you are needing more lotion, your lips will be dried out and chapped and you may even notice that your throat is dry and you need more water to create the needed moisture. The dry air is something that can continue to damage your health and that is why you need to find a way around it so you don’t have to reduce how much you are using your heater.

Heaters Reduce Humidity

The fact is that the heater that you are using to warm your house is not actually reducing the moisture. The moisture that the heater of the air conditioning is using will come from the air that is in your house and outdoors already. That means that you get what is already out in the air. When the winter is upon us the amount of moisture naturally is reduced. The heater seems like it may be contributing to the level of moisture but it is not.
