Humidifiers

Controlling humidity can not only affect how comfortable you feel, it can actually save you money on your monthly energy bills.

Our bodies “feel” heat as a combination of temperature and humidity. In other words, the more humid the air, the warmer it feels. So if you add humidity to dry, heated air in the winter with a Welsch humidifier, you can set your thermostat lower and still be comfortable – while you save money on your utility bills.

A humidifier can also help prevent dry, cracked skin, make it easier to breathe, protect your woodwork and reduce static electricity. It can even make you less susceptible to sore throats and winter colds.

Humidifiers operate on the basis of a simple concept. Air heated by your furnace or heat pump passes through a ceramic-coated pad in your humidifier, called an evaporator pad. The air absorbs moisture from the water-soaked pad and becomes water vapor that humidifies the heated air that is circulated throughout your home. Most humidifiers feature an adjustable humidistat so you can control the exact amount of moisture in the air. The proper amount of moisture depends on the outdoor temperature and other factors; your owner’s manual has recommendations for the best settings for your conditions.

Purchased a new air conditioner and furnace and was impressed from the initial sales contact, to verifying what we needed, installation and clean up. Everyone we dealt with did a great job and we love our new system.

We had Welsch replace one of our old air conditioners, air handler etc with a new Lennox! The whole process from estimate to completion was first class!!! Will definitely use them again!

This is just a short note to let you know how courteous and educational our recent technician was serving us for our regular fall service.  I was searching for someone to explain these issues to me and he knew his subject matter and was more than gracious with his time...
