Your home is a lot like your body. It needs to stay properly hydrated in order to maintain the health and comfort of those living in it.
Air that is too dry can act like a giant sponge, soaking moisture up from everything that it touches in your home — your woodwork, wood floors and furnishings — and you.
Dry air can cause dry, sore throats, frequent colds, not to mention dry skin, dry hair, chapped lips, dry nasal passages and static electricity.
If your home’s moisture level needs to be managed, the friendly experts at Dr HVAC can recommend the right equipment for your needs and your budget.
``Dr HVAC was $50-$200 cheaper and provided a newer model of humidifier. The tech (Mike) showed up promptly at the pre-arranged time and really went above and beyond what was required...I was very happy and felt that the service was well beyond my expectations. Dr HVAC, I will be back!``
Furnace or “whole home” humidifiers treat your entire home at onece. Dr HVAC humidifier systems have been selected to save you water, energy and most importantly money. Properly humidified air feels warmer, enabling you to turn down your thermostat and reduce your energy bill.
3 Types of Humidifier Technologies
The different types of humidification technology each have their advantages and disadvantages. Dr HVAC carries several brands in a choice of these types to suit all needs and budgets.
These use a motor and a rotating belt. The belt passes through a pan with water, and rotates to your air ducts, where evaporation transfers moisture to your air supply. This is the cheapest option, but it requires the most maintenace. Because of standing water, there is a risk of mould.
Flow Through Humidifiers
These have a pad that is moistened by a constant trickle of incoming fresh water. Again, evaporation transfers water to your air supply. There is low risk of mold, and less maintenance than with drum humidifiers.
These are the most effective and require the least maintenance. They also allow more precise control of the humidity level. These are available with hot steam or cool mist. While these do require electricity, there is almost no risk of mould.
Dehumidification And Ventilation
Whether removing moisture evenly throughout the entire home or focusing specifically on humidity problem areas that could lead to costly renovations, the Dr HVAC Dehumidification System provides an unobtrusive, integrated solution that operates quietly and efficiently — all with no water bucket to empty.
While portable dehumidifiers need to be monitored and maintained, a Dehumidification System requires only an air filter to be changed once per year
You can turn your air conditioner down to a temperature that seems comfortable, but if there’s excess moisture in the air, you’ll still feel sticky. Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air, delivering fresh, filtered air into the home.
EnergyStar® estimates that homeowners can save up to six percent on cooling costs for every degree the thermostat is turned up. All Dr HVAC dehumidifiers are:

The Importance of Ventilation
Your ventilation system ensures the exchange of stale air for fresh air. Your Dr HVAC ventilation system makes that air exchange efficiently, so you’ll enjoy fresh air while continuing to receive the benefits of energy efficiency.
The Benefits Of A Ventilation System
Air introduced into the home through a quality ventilation system helps maintain positive pressure in the home to keep air fresher and cleaner. Ventilation also helps reduce carbon monoxide (CO) levels as well as lingering odors from smoke, food preparation, cleaning products and more.
