Is Your Home Suffering From Dry Air? Here’s Why:
If you’ve noticed that the air in your home is dry, you may be wondering why. Dry air is common in the winter months, when the air is colder and can’t hold as much moisture. However, it can also be caused by forced air heating systems that circulate dry air throughout your home.
When the humidity level in your home drops below 30%, it can lead to a range of health problems, including dry skin, nosebleeds, and respiratory issues. A central humidifier can help to add moisture to the air and alleviate these symptoms.
What is a Central Humidifier?
A central humidifier is a device that is installed directly into your existing HVAC system to add moisture to the air in your entire home. These humidifiers work by absorbing water, either through a filter or by evaporating it into the air, and distributing it throughout your home via your ductwork.
There are several different types of central humidifiers available, including evaporative and steam humidifiers. Each type has its own unique benefits and considerations, which we’ll explore in the next section.
We Install All Types of Whole House Humidifiers
At Central Oregon Heating, we offer a range of central humidifiers to fit your needs and budget. Our team of experts can help you choose the right humidifier for your home based on your square footage, existing HVAC system, and desired coverage area.
Evaporative Central Humidifiers
Evaporative central humidifiers work by using a filter or pad to absorb water from a reservoir. The warm air from your HVAC system then passes over the filter, picking up moisture and distributing it throughout your home. These humidifiers are typically less expensive than other types and can be effective for smaller homes. However, they do require regular maintenance to prevent mold and bacteria growth on the filter.
Steam Central Humidifiers
Steam central humidifiers work by boiling water to create water vapor, which is then distributed throughout your home. These humidifiers are typically more expensive than other types but can be effective for larger homes and those with particularly dry air. They also require less maintenance than evaporative humidifiers and can help to increase the temperature of the air in your home.
Self-Contained Central Humidifiers
Self-contained central humidifiers are similar to evaporative humidifiers but do not require a connection to your HVAC system. Instead, they are installed directly into your ductwork and operate independently. These humidifiers can be effective for larger homes or those with unique HVAC systems, but they do require more maintenance than other types.
What Are the Benefits of Central Humidifiers?
There are several benefits to installing a central humidifier in your home, including:
- Alleviating dry skin and respiratory issues caused by dry air
- Protecting your home’s wood furnishings and musical instruments from damage
- Improving the efficiency and lifespan of your HVAC system
- Reducing static electricity in your home
- Creating a more comfortable and healthy living environment

Get an Air Quality Test from Central Oregon Heating
Central Oregon Heating provides a comprehensive air quality test, designed to evaluate the air within your home or business. Our assessment involves a detailed examination of various factors that affect indoor air quality.
We look for pollutants such as dust, pollen, mold spores, and other airborne contaminants. We also measure levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and carbon monoxide, which can be harmful in high concentrations. The evaluation extends to checking humidity levels and ventilation efficiency, as both greatly influence indoor air quality.
