Proper Humidity Control = Lower Energy Bills

When your home’s humidity levels are maintained at optimal setting, you’ll not only feel more comfortable, but you’ll also be able to keep your thermostat at a more energy-efficient setting. 

Avoid Dry Air in the Winter

Lennox® Healthy Climate® whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers efficiently control moisture levels in your home without producing ozone, a known lung irritant. In the wintertime, a Healthy Climate whole-home humidifier works with your HVAC system to add humidity to your indoor air, stopping it from becoming too dry and uncomfortable.

Eliminate Moisture in the Summer

In the summertime, a Healthy Climate or Humiditrol® whole-home dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air, making your home feel less sticky and hot. Too much moisture in your home’s air not only makes the atmosphere feel heavy and damp, but it also promotes the growth of mold and mildew, which can aggravate allergy sufferers. Properly dehumidified air is not only healthier and more comfortable, but it can also reduce your summertime energy bills. Dehumidified air feels cooler, so you can set your thermostat at a higher temperature and still feel comfortable. In fact, for every two degrees you raise the temperature during the summer, you can save between 5% and 7% on your cooling bill.
