A whole-home humidifier helps maintain the proper levels of humidity in your home to reduce the risk of respiratory problems, catching the flu or a cold, and can help you have a more comfortable season by eliminating dry skin, noses, or scratchy throats. Dry air in a home isn’t just bad for you, if you have wood floors, wood furniture or musical instruments, low humidity levels can draw moisture out of them causing damage and cracking.

Whole-home humidifiers offer the ideal humidity control solution for reduced or fluctuating humidity levels at any time of the year, regardless of climate. This way, your home can be protected against adverse health, comfort, and damaging issues.
UV lights improve indoor air quality by sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air as it cycles through your home. Adding a UV light to your home is a fairly quick and easy way to purify the air in your home.
Most homeowners believe that having areas in their home that are too hot or too cold is just something they have to live with. With modern heating solutions, automatic air zoning dampers may be able to be installed in your ductwork which open and close as needed based on each zone’s thermostat demands giving you total comfort throughout your home.
Don’t forget - with a Wi-Fi connected thermostat, you’ll be able to conveniently change your home’s climate with the touch of a button via any digital device through Wi-Fi, whether it’s a computer or mobile phone, you can control your home from your couch or across town! These can even be used to monitor the temperature in your home and alert you if your heat fails to avoid frozen pipes if you are out of town!
