What are the effects of dry air in your home?

We all have an investment in our health, our home and its furnishings. Protecting those investments from the dry air may not seem like an important task, but the effects of dry air are astounding:

  • Dry sinuses and throat
  • Increased bouts of flu, colds and other infections
  • Itchy, dry, cracked skin
  • Cracking of expensive woodwork of floors, furniture, window frames and artwork
  • Damage to musical instruments, such as an expensive piano or violin
  • Increased heating bills! As the window frames on the house crack, they let cold outdoor air in; causing you to turn up the thermostat!
  • Static electricity shocks that can damage computers, VCRs and other electronic equipment
  • Sleeping difficulties that adversely affect your mental concentration

The Solution: The GeneralAire® 1042LH Legacy Humidifier is a whole house solution to restoring your home to proper humidity levels; levels that protect your belongings, your home and more importantly, the health and comfort of you and your family.

Maintenance with the Model 1042LH whole-house humidifier is minimal: simply change the vapor pad once per year! Easily installed and tucked away in your HVAC system, it’s so quiet you’ll forget it’s there.  http://www.generalfilters.com/products/humidifiers/legacy-series-humidifiers/Model-1042LH-Legacy-Humidifier_PT12.html
