Your Humidity Control Professionals
Humidity plays a large role in indoor air quality as it affects your comfort through the way your body reacts to moisture levels. Aside from moisture’s effect on the body, humidity also impacts your property. Too much humidity can be harmful, as moist places harbor the growth of mold and mildew. Too little humidity dries out nasal passages as well as cracks wooden structures. Keeping a healthy balance is the key to comfort and well-being when it comes to humidity. That is why Bella Heating & Air Conditioning offers humidity control options. Bella Heating & Air Conditioning has been the leading source for humidity control services in Chicago since 2002. Extreme temperatures in the region cause humidity to fluctuate drastically (low humidity in the winter, high in the summer) and this has given us many years to develop an expert knowledge on the subject. Our technicians have been specially trained to identify the humidity needs of a household and make suggestions accordingly. We also offer the appropriate humidifying and dehumidifying equipment to answer this need. That is what makes us the number one choice in Chicago for humidity control experts.
During the cold months the air naturally dries out. Dry air can cause a number of health issues because it hinders the proper functioning of the sinuses. Sinuses don’t drain properly and nasal passages dry out, which makes it difficult to breathe, makes it difficult to heal from sickness and also leaves you vulnerable to sinus infection. These conditions are also conducive to asthma attacks. Aside from the health issues, low humidity can also damage your property. Wood flooring, wooden shutters and furniture are subject to drying out and over time that can cause cracking. To combat these problems, Bella Heating & Air Conditioning offers humidifiers. These simple devices reintroduce moisture into the air. Utilizing a number of different mechanisms, different humidifiers boil, evaporate or break down water into vapor. This vapor then dissipates into the air raising the overall humidity.
When your indoor air has too much humidity, this can also cause a number of health problems. Overly moist air harbors bacteria, mold and other pathogens. The moist environment is a prime breeding ground for all sorts of things that are bad for you. These can cause asthma attacks, allergic reactions or general sickness. Health issues aside, moisture also damages your property by causing water accumulation and stains as well as the warping of wood. Using a dehumidifier will alleviate these issues. Dehumidifiers do exactly what their name implies, which is to reduce humidity. By doing the reverse of what a humidifier does, this device removes excess moisture, drying the air to a comfortable level.
By controlling your indoor humidity, you control your comfort and health. Breathe easier, sleep better, have moist and vibrant skin; all of these benefits and more are available through proper humidity control.
