Residential & Domestic Humidification Systems
In line with modern residential building regulations to limit heat loss, modern domestic properties are made as air tight as possible. The reduction in fresh air naturally infiltrating a domestic home reduces moisture transfer with the knock-on effect being that the property becomes dry, causing the occupants to suffer from symptoms such as dry skin and eyes, eczema and dry throats – particularly at night.
Antique furniture, timber floors, artefacts and pictures can also crack due to the low humidity levels possibly reducing their value, affecting their appearance and making them difficult to insure if the climate in the residential property is not kept as constant as in a museum or gallery.
Residential heat exchangers and other energy efficient technical additions to a domestic building assist with temperature control and the removal of unwanted moisture from bathrooms but it is important to consider the air condition as a whole and this includes creating a stable humidity in the home.
The residential solutions range from free standing humidifiers to ducted systems or concealed humidifiers where all you see is a small grill in the wall.
For your health and condition of you furniture and possessionns, humidity control should be considered.
