    What factors affect the cost of whole-home Humidifier/Dehumidifier install?

    • System capacity: Dehumidifiers and humidifiers have different limitations regarding capacity. Humidifier capacity refers to how much water the system can hold before a refill is necessary. Dehumidifier capacity refers to how much moisture the system can remove in 24 hours. More capacity equates to higher cost, but also more convenient for the homeowner.
    • System efficiency: Units with higher efficiency will humidify or dehumidify a home’s air using less electricity. That’s good news for the homeowner because it costs less to run. But efficient systems also have a higher price tag. When it is doubted, an expert installer at Golden Rule can help you determine which system is best based on your budget.
    • Add-ons and features: If you’d like a humidistat installed, or are considering an onboard air filtration system, that will increase the cost of your whole-house de/humidifier install. While we love telling our customers about the latest add-ons and features, we’ll never try to sell you something you’re not interested in. That’s a promise.

    Humidifier & Dehumidifier FAQ

    Portable or whole-home humidifiers are known for combating dry air conditions caused by natural gas furnaces in the wintertime. The right humidifier will balance humidity in the ideal zone of 30% to 50%. But there are other great benefits of owning a humidifier as well, including:

    • Easier to keep warm: Think of the humidity in the air like it was an extra layer of clothing. It works in essentially the same way: it slows down the release of heat from your body. On cold winter days, balanced humidity makes a house feel around 8°F warmer.
    • Save on heating: A humidifier can make a difference in whether you feel warm enough to turn on the furnace or other heating systems. You’ll run the heater less frequently with a humidifier helping everyone stay more comfortable.
    • Cut down on colds and flu: The spread of illness is much easier in dry conditions. Arid weather causes mucus and sinus membranes to dry up, which removes a major obstacle to the transmission of cold and flu germs. When the humidity is balanced, people’s defense against getting sick is stronger.
    • Stops damage to furnishings: Balanced humidity stops the damaging effects of dry air on wood and painted surfaces. You won’t have to deal with cracked wood along with valuable items and furniture or peeling paint.
      None of that annoying static electricity: You might not think of static electricity as a major annoyance—but wouldn’t it be nice not to have it around?

    One of the downsides of a forced–air distribution system is that it tends to dry the air out during the wintertime while doing little to remediate the humidity in the summer. If the air in your home is too dry, it poses all sorts of issues, from home damage to cracked and dry skin. If your home is too humid, however, it can lead to mold growth and create a stuffy indoor air environment.

    Whole-home de/humidifiers can be set according to the needs of your family’s comfort. So just installing one of these systems provides the kind of humidity control you need to make it through both summer and winter.
