Dry indoor air is a major cause of respiratory infections, nose bleeds and repeated episodes of winter colds. A lack of moisture can prevent your immune system from repelling infection-causing germs and can actually promote the growth of some bacteria viruses and respiratory irritants. Your skin needs proper moisture too. By adding a humidifier to your furnace you will add comfort throughout your entire home. Dry air also harms plants, paintings, moldings and wallpaper. It can cause warping and splitting of furniture, woodwork and hardwood floors too.  Yet, all of this can be easily avoided for the smallest of investments. A Whole-Home Humidifier installed by Great Works will deliver the perfect amount of moisture to your air making you feel more comfortable at lower thermostat settings. In fact, the EPA states that you can save up to 4% on your heating bill for every degree you lower your thermostat! Increase your family’s level of comfort and protect your valuable furnishings by adding just the right amount of moisture with a Whole-House Humidifier.

 

DEHUMIDIFIERS

Featured Brands:  Aprilaire

All homes need humidity control. And in southern climates, they need it year round. Air conditioning alone can’t satisfy your home’s humidity requirements. Your air conditioning system is designed to control temperature, not humidity, and only removes humidity as a byproduct of cooling. During the spring and fall seasons when it’s still cool outside but damp inside, your air conditioning isn’t running and your house is uncomfortable — you need an Whole-Home Dehumidifier.

Installed as part of your home’s heating and cooling system, dehumidifiers pull air from every room through the return ducts. It removes the moisture and then sends dry air back throughout your home. It works in conjunction with your air conditioner to efficiently balance the humidity levels in your home, but can also work independently on days when you don’t need the air conditioner.
