Whole house humidifiers help improve the quality of air in your home by balancing the moisture levels. A home with too much moisture (high humidity) is susceptible to the growth of mold and mildew, while dry air (low humidity), which often occurs during the winter months as a result of heating your home, causes respiratory issues, nose bleeds, dry skin, and more.
A whole house humidifier regulates the humidity levels in your home to make sure they are always at optimal levels. And compared to portable humidifiers, whole house humidifiers are much more efficient and convenient.

Whole House Humidifier Installation
A whole house humidifier is installed directly into your home’s heating and cooling system. The humidifier then adds moisture to the air as it circulates in your home through the duct work. Throughout the day, the system will measure the moisture levels to make sure they are within the ideal range.
An experience Ernst technician can assist you with your whole house humidifier installation. We are available to answer any questions you have, and we offer some of the best humidifiers on the market. Choose from Honeywell and Aprilaire including:
- Honeywell Advanced Bypass – easy to maintain and very quiet
- Honeywell Advanced Fan Powered – cuts water waste
- Aprilaire 800 – powered by steam and ideal for larger homes
One of the benefits of a whole house humidifier is that once it’s installed the system will maintain itself. You just set your desired humidity levels (recommended levels are between 30-50%), and let it go. Therefore, unlike portable humidifiers, whole house humidifiers require much less maintenance because you don’t have to worry about refilling it with special distilled water and cleaning it every couple of days.

Health & Home Benefits of Humidifiers
In Metro East Illinois, the dry air in wintertime is more than an annoying inconvenience. It can also pose a variety of health risks, including respiratory issues, dry skin, irritated nasal passages and nose bleeds. Dry air can also aggravate existing allergies and asthma. A whole house humidifier counteracts these health risks that come with too much dry air so you and your family members will remain healthy and enjoy a more comfortable atmosphere at home during the winter.
In addition to health benefits, whole house humidifiers are also beneficial for your home. That’s because dry air can have a damaging effect on your home and the contents inside. You could face cracks in wooden floors, peeling paint, and damage to furniture and musical instruments. A whole house humidifier can prevent this damage to help preserve and protect your home.
