Control Your Edmonton Homes Comfort with a Whole-Home Humidifier System

Your health can be affected when humidity levels are off in your Edmonton home.

Low humidity levels can make your house seem colder than it really is. Dry air can also make your skin and lips feel dry—and make you more vulnerable to getting sick. And excess humidity can lead to water damage and mold growth.

A whole-home humidifier or dehumidifier from McKinley Heating Service Experts is the most practical way to restore comfort and improve air quality in your house.

Our Experts can help you locate the best energy-efficient unit for your home. And we’ll support it with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

12 Signs Your Home’s Humidity Level is Off

The standard setting for indoor humidity is 40–60 percent. You can determine it with a smart thermostat or digital humidity equipment.

If you don’t own these devices, there are a few symptoms your home’s humidity level is imbalanced:

Humidity is Too Low

  1. Frequent bloody noses
  2. Split lips
  3. Scratchy skin, eyes or throat
  4. Persistent cold or flu symptoms
  5. Damage to wood flooring or furniture
  6. Heavy static electricity

Humidity is Too High

  1. Mold growth
  2. Windows with moisture
  3. Stuffy odors
  4. Water damage or stains
  5. Rotting wood
  6. Heightened allergy symptoms

How a Whole Home Humidifier or Dehumidifier Works

We add a whole-home dehumidifier or humidifier as part of your HVAC system and air ducting. It controls humidity as your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner works.

The humidifier uses a pad and rotating drum or steaming system to increase moisture levels. The dehumidifier attracts humid air and cools it. Then it moves excess moisture into a pan or drain.

Both systems are more useful than their compact counterparts, which can only handle a single room at a time. A whole-home system also involves a lesser amount of service than a lightweight dehumidifier or humidifier.
