Air Quality and Humidity levels
One way to notice if you need a whole home system, is what the air quality is. If the air is dry, there are several things you might notice. You or a family member may have dry and irritated eyes. If you have contacts, you will notice that the contacts are starting to dry out and stick. This can become an issue, and may even cause the contacts to rip. Another problem may be dry or chapped lips. If you drink a lot of water, and still find yourself reaching for the chap stick, the dry air may be to blame. You may also notice dry skin and that you need to put on lotion more frequently.
Besides your own health, dry air can damage your home as well. This can cause static in the house as you walk around. Touching something metal may then produce a shock as you touch. The floors and walls may also become dried out as well. Some long term exposure to dry air can cause the paint on the walls to peel off. This will cause the home to look less than ideal, and repainting would cost more in the long run. So make sure that your whole home has the ideal amount of humidity in it this winter.
