I live in the south, & for most of the year, the whole location is green.
It is moderate & humid here, & everything grows.
However, when Wintertide rolls around, some of those green plants die off, the air gets colder, & there is less moisture in the air naturally. Then, on top of that, people are using their oil gas furnaces more. That exacerbates the dry air situation, so Wintertide is the time of year when it might be beneficial to use a whole home humidifier. Having low humidity can result in cracked wood around doorways, dried out furniture, & dry eyes, flaky skin, & sore throats. A whole home humidifier that is a area of your Heating & A/C method can help you combat all these Wintertide woes. Here in this area of the world, a/c systems have built in dehumidifiers because the moisture levels in the air are often too high! My brother who lives out west, though, has more need for a humidifier most of the year. Heating & A/C manufacturers guess these quirks & tend to sell the best Heating & A/C systems based on the area of the country. The whole home humidifier works hand in hand with your Heating & A/C method & adds moisture into the air. This can help you tolerate Wintertide better & have less skin problems & fewer sinus headaches & chapped lips, but when you use the heater, moisture in the air is reduced, so the humidifier can be your best friend. The humidifier moves moisture into your ductwork & it spreads throughout your beach house through the furnace air vents.
